    by Sindorei | 15th of September, 2013

    Hello dreamstimers!! I am looking to buy myself a good macro lens for my Canon 700D body! I have read some info about the Tamron AF 60/2 Di-II LD lens which has a very good price and seems like a good lens, but I somehow, wouldn't like to go with my first pic, at least... More
  • I've lived the Legacy

    by Daddiomanottawa | 3rd of June, 2013

    I shoot micro four thirds. Unlike many, I'm not a DSLR to m4/3 convert. Although they fascinate me, especially full frame, I know little to nothing about cameras using APS-C,APS-H or full frame sensors except what I have read on the internet. My decision to go micro four... More
  • It's all about the children

    by Tempestz | 8th of May, 2013

    As mentioned in a previous blog of mine, capturing the perfect images of children sometimes means letting kids behave naturally to catch some great candid shots. Think of children exploring a beach at low tide and the expressions on their faces as they find a starfish or... More

    by Amilevin | 27th of August, 2012

  • Review: 70-200 4L USM

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.... More

    by Silasfirth | 7th of December, 2011

    A couple years ago, I decided I wanted to photograph birds. After playing with several different setups, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a Canon Rebel XS and an EF 100-400mm L IS USM lens. Since then, I have come to enjoy photographing just about anything, but... More

    Hello! A while ago I asked advise on this board from people using various fish-eye lenses, which of them was better, becuase I planned to buy a suspiciously cheap one from ebay. Here is the discussion . Now I can say that I made an experiment: my cheap (about 30$ including... More

  • Why I Chose The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L Over The EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L

    by Edayrit100 | 16th of August, 2011

    Money is no object so ... LOL; how I wish that were true :) But it DOES matter, and matter a whole lot, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the 24-105 is $300 less expensive (in the Philippines) than the 24-70 and is even the more appropriate lens for me. I... More

  • Wildlife Photography: What’s in my camera bag

    by Visceralimage | 21st of January, 2011

    When I do talks for other photographers or meet with camera clubs; one of the most common questions is: what equipment do you use and what is in your camera bag. In the old days, it was pretty simple; most of us used the Nikon F5, F4... or the Canon 1V series. Now, with... More

    by Davidwattsjr | 15th of October, 2010

    by Williamardrey | 23rd of August, 2010

    I have been having trouble with accurate focusing lately. I have the Olympus Evolt510 SLR digital camera and mostly use the kit lenses it came with for most of my pictures. I did buy a Zuiko telephoto lens last year to complement the other lenses. I'm trying to discover... More

  • Seeing through the camera

    by Eternalfour | 21st of March, 2010

    Taking pictures not only involve looking and shooting. When we are experiencing a certain place space or object, not only our vision is stimulated; all our senses are; so when the photo is taken one may think that a great photo has been shot, but in reality it may be a... More
