Re: 35MM Tubes

They are really all Macro tubes.

The ones described as macro and not auto mean that your camera has to be used in manual mode and no connection to the aperture system is used.

The auto ones control the fuctions of the lens by passing the cameras setting through to the lens or in the case of old lenses just work the aperture blades as if the lens was just used on its own.
