    its means that the tubes have no electical contacts - so the camera has no idea what lens is attached to it. That means aperture has to be changed manually (not too tricky since many nikons still have a manual aperture ring - unlike a lot of recent canon lenses) and that one has to meter the camera manually as well (that means either knowing maths or lots of experimenting ;))
