    Default Build your own Macro lense

    This is a pretty sweet article. I'm not sure I'm going to make the investment but somebody put some thought into this. The macro images on the site are impressive considering that the lense was constructed with a pringles can...

    Great scotch is great precisely because you drink it with great friends.

    its just a teleconverter tube.....you can buy proper ones on Ebay for <$40.... although the tele value on an entire pringles tube is huge, it may be much more user friendly to use a shorter tube (mini pringles can)

    More like building an extension tube than bulding a lens. Not a bad idea really, and good on the cheap. I'll stick with my kenko's though. Reminds me, I need to put them to better use.
