    krishnakumar omanakuttan personally i prefer not to 'experiment' with my primary lens... anyway auto-aperture, auto-focus will not work.

    I've kept my aperture open with a cut drinking straw wedged in the mechanism on the lens, you still have no proper control but you can get it fully open which helps.

    Extension tube macro vs. Reverse technique? Which one would take lovely pictures?
  • __sam 4y

    saralsth both!
    reverse lens has more magnification, but subject to camera distance is very short... sometimes its not possible to go that close to insects.
  • George Holland 4y

    you can set the aperture setting of the lens and camera by half depressing the shutter button then removing the lens and fitting the tube. Just don't fiddle with any setting after
