    by Neilmachin | 6th of June, 2013

  • It's all about the children

    by Tempestz | 8th of May, 2013

  • 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

  • Why zooms rock (Part 2)

    by Bradcalkins | 23rd of February, 2011

    A while ago, I did a blog on prime lenses and their strengths - but there is still a case for zooms: 1. When you can't move or can't get closer! People often refer to 'sneaker zoom' with prime lenses - meaning they walk closer or further to adjust framing. That is... More

  • Side by side with lizards

    by Risto40 | 1st of August, 2010

    After the purchase of a macro lens at the beginning of this summer, I needed "models" to picture at. As spending much time in countryside I noticed a small family of lizards living in a flowerbed. Often I saw them having sunbath at a yellow-green bush. Then I decided to pick... More

    by Ks2008q | 19th of June, 2009

  • Tripod

    by Vtr | 5th of April, 2009

    How important is a Tripod to a photographer ? This could be a question that would be in a mind until you have one. But the point is who is willing to carry a tripod already the camera bag with those lens and charger storage media and camera makes it heavy. But Wait ..... More
