Extension Tubes


I have a Nikon D70 and I bought some extension tubes. I cannot seem to get them to work correctly. When I put them on my camera and then put the lens on, I cannot see anything out of my viewfinder. I am using a Tamron 70-300 tele-macro lens. Does anyone have any idea what I need to do? Thanks.

  Are you trying to use normal focus distance when you use the tubes? Extension tubes allow you to focus at much closer distances from the subject than a macro lens will. Try moving in closer and see if that works.
Have fun and keep shooting.

  Anytime. I didn't think you were used to them. Macro and micro photography are new worlds. Enjoy!
