Extension Tubes

Today I learned about extension tubes. These are tubes you put between your camera and your lens. There is no glass involved, they’re just tubes to move the lens further from the sensor. With this technique, you can focus on objects much closer than your lens allows you. I was about to buy a macro lens, but this is much cheaper. You can get some for as cheap as a few dollars on Ebay. It’s worth a shot, I’ll give it a try and reevaluate if I really need a macro lens.

Now I need to convince myself that I also don’t need a fisheye lens.
