YN560-III speedlight flash

Essentially a general external camera flash with manual controls, it will work on Canon or Nikon DSLR's. It's manual in the sense that the flash settings won't automatically change as you alter the settings on your Canon DSLR camera body and lens. You have to tap in the appropriate intended settings that you're going to use on your camera via the controls on the back of the flash even when its mounted on the camera!  Flashguns with auto...

Canon 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM EF-S lens (made in Taiwan)

This lens more commonly comes as part of a kit, but it can also be bought on its own as an aftermarket option. Generally quite a sharp EF-S kit lens specifically designed for digital crop sensors. So 17mm is 17mm with this lens just as 85mm on this lens at the tele end is 85mm when used with a crop sensor Canon dslr. Its technically and physically one of the better examples of an EF-S kit lens when compared to the 18-135mm version and t...

Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM EF lens (... made in Japan)

Not the smallest of zoom lenses although light (compared to the Defractive Optics (DO) version which is also much heavier despite being smaller and a little slower on the aperture front in starting out at f4.5, although the IS gives you a 2 to 3 stop advantage for image steadiness), but its certainly much smaller and lighter than its much costlier L lens counterpart of the same zoom range and aperture rating.

This is also the replacement...

DSLR Controller Beta (for android)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Saturday, January 11, 2014, In : software 
words & image source/photographer : Eksovichea Tito Hak


Essentially an android app that will allow you to control Canon DSLR's via an android phone or tablet whilst also giving you a live-view on your android device screen. The size of the live-view display that you can use is only limited by the size of your android devices screen. The live-view stream to your android device can be rendered at up to 30 fps if you're using a direct USB cable connection. I'm not sure how it handles over a wi-fi...

Stumped for lack of a laptop/desktop client for your mobi eye-fi card?

Maybe you blew 50 quid on a class 10 16GB mobi eye-fi SD card with the intention of adding some fast and fuss free wi-fi capabilities to your compact camera or DSLR,... only to realise too late that the mobi versions compatibility is limited to android and iOS devices via the freely downloadable software. ...camera wi-fi adding fail fail. 

Yup, it turns out that you need the pro x 2 version of the eye-fi card if you want fully supported la...

Canon 40mm f2.8 EF pancake prime lens (made in Malysia)

In a word...impressive.

This lens is extremely crisp and sharp. It was eye pleasingly contrasty and punchy on the colours front when I needed it to be without my having to necessarily drop into the menu settings to change picture style settings. (Almost as if it knew what I wanted without my having to tell it/set it).

Even without a lens hood It handled a number of daylight backlit situations near a window and a certain amount of glare quit...

Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII EF lens (EF a full frame) on a crop sensor body...

Some people complain you can't fit much in the frame using a 50mm full frame lens on a 1.6x crop sensor body which is true. But maybe it might be worth considering that an 85mm f1.8 EF lens costs around about 300 to 500GBP depending on where you buy and whether it's brand new or second hand.

A 50mm EF lens on a Canon 1.6x crop sensor camera body will give you an 80mm equivalent viewing field, which is very close to using the 85mm EF lens ...
