Schwing! goes the Nikon.

My camera was eager to go out and shoot something today, chomping at the bit, in fact.


I couldn't go out, so I assembled this rig just to keep the camera distracted. It's been trying to find focus ever since, and has forgotten all about the Autumn foliage....


From left to right, the components are:


Nikon D50 DSLR

11mm "PRO" brand auto extension tube (Pre AI)

"PRO" brand bellows at full extension

18mm "PRO" brand auto extension tube (Pre AI)

36mm "PRO" brand auto extension tube (Pre AI)

128mm stack of cheap eBay threaded extension tubes

17mm stack of eBay extension tube male and female lens sockets, screwed directly together

14mm Nikon Extension Ring E2 (Pre AI)

Nikon 70-300mm G lens (at full schwing zoom and focus extension)

Nikon HB-26 lens hood
