The reason they are numbered, you will figure out, is because they mark varying degrees of distance. You're supposed to play with combinations of the rings, to get differences in focus range. The more rings, the shallower the depth of field.
Slightly unscrewing the rings from each other does nothing. I tried. In fact, keep them really tight once you find your niche to avoid confusing their spinning with that of manual focus rings.
There are a couple of things to note.
This is a budget macro extension tube. Neewer is great at providing these sort of alternatives. It does not include digital sensors within its system, as more expensive models do.
How it works:
If you're using a DSLR with its stock lens (or any non-manual lens), chances are, you're used to the autofocus function as well as the ability to change aperture (Fstop) in the settings. This is possible because when the lens is attached to the camera, a circuit is exposed to corresponding connectors on the camera that allow both aperture and focus to be controlled by motors powered by the battery.
This product is literally only a hollow tube placed between camera and lens. Since it provides no conductive surfaces from the first ring to the last, those two corresponding circuits (In camera and in lens) are never reconnected to one another. This means that you must be able to control focus and aperture manually. Focus can usually be changed to manual mode by switching a lever on the lens, so this is a non-issue if you don't mind manual work. And since the focus range is so darn narrow (especially when more rings are kept in place as the tube), you're more likely to move the camera closer and further from your subject to focus than trying to fidget with the focus ring on the lens. Again, a non-issue for hobbyists and those that enjoy manual operations.
Another thing to note is that since you really are distancing the lens from the sensor, light will take longer to reach it. Meaning, pictures can come out darker. You need to be able to adjust aperture manually.
The real problem is aperture.
I was unable to do so with my stock lens (because the feature is exclusively digitally controlled. So no manual operations are available). I tried this with an old prime lens whose aperture and focus are both exclusively performed mechanically by turning rings on the lens, and the exposure on the pictures was actually fine. I can't say if it will work with non-manual aperture lenses...
For under 8$, this is a nice little novelty to add to your collection. It forces you to operate your camera in the strangest ways, and in doing so helps you familiarize yourself with your camera. And as you can see, it also sparks an interest in the little details of the operations of cameras. Since I was little, I always loved macro. I heard about this sort of thing and I always wondered why anyone would buy a macro lens if you could just use stuff like this. I now see why, but I can still appreciate the art of improv,
IMPORTANT: This does not transmit data from the lens to the body. Get this ONLY if you have an older lens (like the Nikon 50mm 1.8D) that has the manual aperture ring so you can open up your aperture to any level. Without an aperture ring, the lens is stuck at its narrowest aperture, which makes it nearly impossible to see through.
Also does not allow for auto focus. But with macro shots with this, its far easier to lock focus and then move your body / tripod back and forth to get the right focus point, as the Depth of Field is so small Auto focus is unlikely to work anyways.
It's all manual mode. If you can't use your camera in manual mode, you're missing a lot of wonderful, affordable Nikkor lenses, and a lot of photographic opportunities. Learn to do it.
Here is a lesson for macro shooting:
They're just tubes! No electronic communication between lens and body. You better expect to use these with lenses that have an aperture dial on the lens. You will need to focus manually. Tubes by their nature, cut down the light so if you want reasonable depth of focus prepare for long exposures and/or high ISO. That said, this is a cheap way to test the waters of macro photography. Those here who say "save your money, buy a macro lens!" can't do math. $900 for a Nikon full frame vs $10 tubes?
