Canon EF 200/1.8L USM Telephoto Lens

It is the world’s fastest 200mm telephoto lens. Three UD-glass elements eliminate secondary spectrum for sharp images at all apertures. The optics have been designed to give excellent background blur. Try it with the maximum aperture’s shallow depth of field. One of the best lenses Canon has ever made, and therefore the reason why it came under my attention: Very sharp and very fast, ideal for low-light sports work and candid portraits, ideal for gymnastics and any other indoor sports. However, from f2.8 to f4, the image becomes razor sharp that shows dazzling contrast and colours. This lenses strengths are not just the excellent colours and contrast, but also the fact that with f1.8 even low light problems become a thing of the past. Technical Data: • Camera Format : 35 mm SLR • Lens Type : Fixed Focal Length Lens • Focal Length : 200mm • Aperture Range Prime … Read more

5 Tips for Choosing a Tripod

Tip 1 Small “tabletop” tripods (sometimes called “tablepods” or mini tripods) are used in situations where a full sized tripod would be too bulky to carry and situations like macro home studio. It can easily be inclined right, left, up and down. Tip 2 Maximum high varies from 100 to 256 cm. The cheap tripods, generally made of aluminum tubing with an attached head and rubber feet. The head flips sideways 90 degrees for portrait and landscape and are easy to carry due to their lightweight. Oh, actually there are some tripods even cheaper because they come without heads (pro models). More expensive tripods come with swappable heads and optional spiked feet for rough ground, and usually feature “fluid” heads (fluid head controls the horizontal position of the tripod). Also easy to carry, its my recommendation for the flexible use it allows. The most expensive tripods of all are wooden … Read more

Photography Basics: Polarization Filters

The use: A polarising filter (or polarization filter) is used to remove reflections from a shiny surface and make blue skies darker. Types: Linear and circular polarizer. Circular is recommended. Manufacturers: Hoya, B&W and Cokin, using different depths of filter mount. Recommendations: not to use with wide-angle lenses and UV Filters. A polarization filter only allows light to enter the lens in a specific direction whilst absorbing other light. If used for its traditional role of removing reflections, by polarising the light reflected from the surface it permits the actual subject to be viewed without reflections. When removing reflections the optimum polarisation effect will be achieved with the camera at a 30o ~40o angle to the subject. By rotating the polarising filter different parts of the subject can often be polarised changing the overall effect. The part of the world you are photographing will also make a big difference to the … Read more
