The great thing about this project is that you can make it as long/short as you yourself require (longer tube=closer macro) AND it will fit with any lens made for the canon EOS series! :)
one thing to note, if you make a long tube it will allow you to take photos SUPERCLOSE, but your "focus-range" will be minimal, meaning that if the object your taking a picture of has any curves, only a tiny portion will be in focus
Things you will need!!
Cover for your DSLR Body
Cover for your DSLR lens, as in socketcover.
A tube of some sort, I used a roll that used to have giftrope on it (anything that dosent let through light can work)
A hot glue gun
A dremel or other tool for making holes in your covers
a bottle or other tube to fit over the "lens-extension" to make it prettier :)
Step 1: CUTTING! WOO!!
These caps will be Glued onto the ends of the tube, allowing the tube to fit into your DSLR body like a lens would.
Then the same goes for the other end of the tube, but with the socketcap that allows you to put your lens into the extension.
Step 2: Finding a Tube, Cutting It.
Turned out it was a good fit :)
Cut your tube into a desirable length, to find out you´ll have to experiment with different lengths, thats what I did :)
Step 3: What Happend?!
All that has happend here is the following:
1. I glued my two lenscaps onto my tube using hot glue.
2. I cut my tube in the middle , made it shorter, and glued it back together as one piece
3. I used black Electrical tape where I had glued to make sure no light came into the tube
4. I cut a clear plastic bottle and fitted it over my extension to make it prettier. (had to sand down the tube before putting on the bottletube)
5.Painted it :)
Step 4: Inside and Finished Extension
What is important is that there is nothing covering the view for the mirror in your DSLR, and no light coming into the extension, I used alot of black electrical-tape as you can see in previous steps :)
Step 5: Final Product and Pictures!
So a check list for your own extension.
Lens is aligned with the camera when fixed to it´s extension (in other words your extension is straight)
Your extension shuts out ALL exterior light
thats pretty much it, hope you all enjoyed this instructable, its my first :)
