    great shots.

    I've also joined the extension tube club, despite what I said earlier. reverse coupling ring and reverse mounts just don't work as well. Lack of aperture control is the decisive factor.

    Haven't got around to using them yet, but I trust these Kenko tubes with electronic contacts will be up to the job. They are not cheap!

    My tube is a very old Manual Nikon tube.
    I can't speak for Canon but Nikon offered a reversing adapter to manually control the aperture on their old lenses. It also took a threaded filter I believe.

    You could try a T mount bellows and fit a manual lens with an appropriate adaptors on each end.

    Mine just arrived at home, and I have a reverse mount on its way (from China I assume).

    Any top tips? I like the idea of the home made ring, but that would mean that I'd need a extension cable for my flash, for now I think I'll just use my normal flash with a home made soft box, and see how that goes.
