#22. "RE: Extension Tubes for Nikon D5100"
In response to In response to 21

Hi Mary,

I tried the Extension tubes and though I am able to get the pictures the auto functions dont work. So I am not able to change the aperture or the auto focus doesnt work. I am only able to take pictures in the complete Manual mode in the camera. Is this the way it should work?

The product description on the website says "These tubes are fully automatic tubes in that they are able to communicate all electronic functions from lens to camera including autofocus and auto exposure. They are compatible with all AF and AF-S lenses. Electronic aperture control is not possible with Nikon AI lenses"

I am using Nikon 18-55 lens for this and i was assuming that the auto functions will work.

Let me know if you can provide some insights to this!

Regards,
Abhinav
