Recently, I had the chance to redeem a gift card on Amazon. So, what did I purchase? the following
- Rangers 57” Ultra Compact and Lightweight Aluminum Tripod with 360° Panorama Ball head, ideal for travel and work
- Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Snap-On Lens
- Movo Photo AF Macro Extension Tube Set for Canon EOS DSLR Camera with 12mm, 20mm & 36mm Tubes (Economy Mount)
Why these? For one, the tripod was being offered for half its standard price.
Two, the tripod can be converted into a monopod / walking stick.
Three, being interested in macro photography, I wanted to try a double element diopter after finding out that a single element diopter (which I bought earlier) results in blurred images.
Four, I also wanted electronic extension tubes for macro photography (even though I recently bought non-electronic extension tubes) and the Movo extension tubes were in my budget. Actually, I decided to take a gamble on the Movo extension tubes as I made the decision based on Amazon reviews.
Happy to say that the Movo extension tubes are working great with my Canon 700D. I have done trials with the tripod and the diopter, but I have not reached a conclusive point of view.
I will post images shortly.
