  • Travelling light with your DSLR

    by Sebcz | 21st of May, 2008

    You have your DSLR. You have your lenses. Many of them. What do you do if you really don't want to take them ALL with you? Well, there are things to consider - how much weight you are prepared to carry and what compromises you are ready to take. My personal choice... More
  • Tamron 17-50 F/2,8 Review

    by MinervaStudio | 19th of May, 2008

    So, I assume you've bought a DSLR and now you are disappointed by the 18-55 kit lens that comes with your camera. This is mostly true speaking of Canon kit lens, but anyway Nikkor kit lens, though being a much better lens, may be not what you were looking for, in terms... More
  • A little help when choosing new camera or lens.

    by Markogt | 28th of March, 2008

    Choosing a new camera or camera lens is usually not simple thing to to. I have found a very useful web site, that you can use to compare photos made with different cameras and different camera lens! So you can take the most out of your photos.... More
  • I do not want the hightech lens now

    by Boostlee | 24th of March, 2008

    I don't have any hightech lens. Sometimes I really eager to have one when I saw the perfect photos shot by it. But I just think about if all of the perfect photos are always shot by the hightech lens. I dont' think so. If there is anyone who is using the same lens but shot... More
  • Wide Angle - Olympus user?

    by Cleaper | 4th of March, 2008

    I absolutely love taking landscape photographs but I feel that i would benefit from a wide angle lens. I am currently using an Olympus e-400 with the supplied kit lenses, which are great but not exactly wide angle. The two lenses I have been looking into are the 7-14mm... More
  • Through a different looking glass... or just new glass...

    by Pirate59 | 26th of February, 2008

    Hi everyone. With every new item purchased for your camera, a new system or lesson is learned. Whether its learning about camera shake with super-mega-ultra zoom lenses, what positions mean what on a circular polarising filter. All these lessons are not necessarily... More
  • Is That Big Old Lens Worth It?

    by Charlesoutcalt | 25th of January, 2008

    Where to spend limited photo equipment dollars? Here's the dilemma: I will be heading to Africa on a safari with family this summer. Fourteen days of once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities. Right now, my biggest lens is the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L with IS. I love... More
  • First images with the new lens

    by Mheuver | 7th of October, 2007

    I went on a trip with my girlfriend a few weeks ago, which was the perfect time to try out my new Canon 70-200 F4. I really loved the sharpness of the lens and different perspective the 70-200 range gave me. Shooting landscape with this focal range needs some practice though.... More
  • What lens are you using

    by Redsun81 | 26th of September, 2007

    Do the lenses you're using equate to the quality of your pictures?or in the same context,does the camera you're using matter? Personally i use a 30D and the Canon kit lens,a lens which some people won't even consider as their 1st lens.Before using the 30D i had a 20D and... More

  • Tamron Di-II 18-250 - finally have it!

    by Sebcz | 18th of September, 2007

    The new Tamron 18-250 has just arrived, I'll be testing it for some time. As for now, only my 'how it feels in hand' impressions: solid build, very nice manual focusing, quite pleasant AF sound, and that range ! But of course its optical performance is the most important,... More
  • Choosing a new lens

    by Sebcz | 9th of September, 2007

    Very often, in the forums, you can read a beginner's question: "What lens should I buy next? I already have a kit lens" Well, the answer is one - if you don't know what to buy, don't buy anything. When you start to shoot more, when you are a more experienced photographer,... More
  • Selling kit lens.

    by Sebcz | 4th of September, 2007

    Let me tell you, I am kinda upset - I was going to sell my Pentax kit lens (18-55) for a decent price (less than the half of retail price), still no-one wanted it (auction site). I tried to set the price at the 1/3, added a UV filter, one offer has appeared. What'... More
  • Bought a new lens

    by Mheuver | 1st of September, 2007

    After being slightly disappointed with the performance of the Sigma 70-300 APO, I decided to buy a new mid-range to short tele zoom. I especially didn't like the background blur (bokeh) of Sigma. Although I started to appreciate the range of the 70-300, the image in the top... More
  • Rain Protection

    by Thefinalmiracle | 30th of August, 2007

    I recently faced a lot of problems shooting in the rains. A plastic bag doesn't solve the problem as it is the lens that gets wet and if you want to shoot children crossing in the rain or just some rainy scene, its very hard to do that without having some drops right on the... More
  • Fickle minded or seeking improvements?

    by Fertographer | 27th of August, 2007

    All along in the span of almost a year, I have changed quite a few lens..buying and selling definitely at a loss. My main issue is the inability to spend or simply put it, low purchasing power..I just don't have enough money. Getting my kit lens, I moved on to get a 50mm... More
  • Which Lens?

    by Kenneystudios | 25th of August, 2007

    Whenever we head out to a family function or just a day out somewhere, I always debate on which camera lens to take with me, or how many. After several hours of mentally debating it with myself, I had the decision narrowed down to two lenses: my 70m-300mm zoom, and 17mm-... More
  • New Norway collection.

    by Sebcz | 24th of August, 2007

    OK, so most of the Norway photos are now online. The amount is quite big, I decided to make a special collection of them, for now it can only be found via looking at my profile page, in INFO links, when it's finally ready (when all the files are reviewed), I will make it... More
  • Renting a lens is wise, its not a waste of money

    by Denisebeverly | 22nd of August, 2007

    Have you ever considered renting a lens before you buy one? At first the thought of doing so seemed like a waste of money. But this past month I decided I just HAD to have a macro lens. I found a very good place to rent in my home state, not too far away, and had them... More
  • Halo Effect

    by Kenneystudios | 11th of August, 2007

    I took this picture back in the 1990s with a very simple, very cheap 35mm film camera. Adoring my mother's purple irises, I was taking pictures of them before their season was over. The sun was setting, so I was trying to hurry. I did not pay attention to the position of... More
