Newest member here. Canon 70D with kit lens from Costco. This is my first DSLR so still learning how to use...Before that it was a Sony cybershot bought back in 2004. Going to 70D is a giant jump. The camera's video feature is not far behind any good camcorder. Here are a few images and a video of my 125G tank captured with 70D.

Finally made the switch from Nikon to Canon.

Equipment list:
Canon rebel t5i
Canon 17-55mm f/2.8
Canon 50mm f/1.8

Have only messed around with it a little so far. Hoping to get some great photos once I get some practice in!

I'd like to join if possible. I got a Canon G15 for my birthday and have loved how easy and the quality of photos it is able to take.

Would love to have the 16-35. The 60mm is a great lens, favorite I have even over one of my L lenses. I don't think you can beat it's price, performance and versatility. Took some pretty good fish pics with it, without even using flash.

Everyone should have a Pimp # now. Check the first post.

So those who made the switch from Nikon to Canon, tell us why you didn't like Nikon I already know the answer but please share your thoughts.

So I got this not long ago (by me I mean the wife lol) and I'm clueless how to work it.

I did however want to try my hand at macro shots of my tank. Since I'm novice I figured I try the cheap way an give the 50mm f1.8 on non-AF macro tubes a try. I have the 50mm just figured I buy some tubes of amazon.

Anyone know if they work? Here's the one I was thinking about getting.

Here's the camera I would try it with.

Okay, I'm in. VERY new to planted tanks, but not as much to photography. My first tank is still settling in. I'll be posting pictures once my tank settles in and starts looking a little better. Need to think about getting some macro equipment now that I have small things worth taking pictures of.

EOS-6D
17-40 f/4L
24-105 f/4L IS
35 f/2 IS
85 f/1.8

Macro tubes work fine. I've heard okay things about the fotodiox tubes. With that setup you will be manual all the way. Macro is often done with manual focus even if you have the option of AF, so that's not really a big deal. But, I don't think these have any electronic connection to the lens, so you will not be able to stop down. This will give you a very narrow depth of field (only a narrow slice will be in focus), which can be good or bad, depending on what you are going for. The Kenko or Canon extension tubes allow you to change the aperture, but they are more expensive. Also, any time you are using extension tubes, it changes the focus range of your lens, so you will usually have a far focus limit as well as a near focus limit - i.e. you won't be able to focus on things that are far away (more than a few feet) while the extension tubes are on.
