Just a quick technical tip this week...I wanted to take a quick moment to write about an issue I had this week with my Canon 7D and the Tamron 70-300mm VC lens. For those who have read my blogs in the past, you know that I recommend this combination as a good economy rig for those getting started or simply have no budget for photography gear.For the most part I have been using this lens with manual focus for birds on a stick and had not used the AF a whole lot, but when I did use it, I noticed... continue reading

I'm super happy with my new lens Tamron SP AF 70-200/2, 8 Di IF Macro for Nikon AF, takes great pictures in all conditions and is an affordable lens.Should you invest in a new lens so I recommend this lens, its without stabilizer, but if you can photograph technology so this does not make any significant without. continue reading
Wondered, why VR (Vibration Reduction) had different names and were little, confused when I saw that there were different names on different brands. so I googled a bit and found this!Same technology, different brand names.Pretty much the same technology under different acronyms.....probably due to trademark infringementVR (vibration reduction) is Nikon's trademark name for stabilization. Canon's is IS or "Image Stabilizer. Same thing from different brands.Canon Image Stabilization IS... continue reading

What an amazing month it's been for me!This month marked my 20th wedding anniversary.Coincidentally, the family also went for what happened to be my eldest daughter’s first intercontinental trip—we went to the Philippines, Hongkong and Macau, China.(We wrapped up the month by taking our eldest to college—also very exciting… for her, that is.Definitely not for me :(( but it’s fine).But my excitement didn’t stop there, I recall opening my DT account one morning while we were... continue reading
Last week was going to buy a new lense and to start with the macro photography,captured by the beautiful images I have seen around lately.Went to the shop and asked for the Tamron 90mm f2.8 which is a great one and not too expensive,compared to the Nikon ones,like the Nikkor 60mm f2.8 or the Nikkor 105mm f2.8;another great one is the Sigma 105mm f2.8...don't know about the Canon ones (out of the Canon 100mm f2.8),more into Nikon stuff,sorry!Anyway I asked about it but they didn't know and even... continue reading
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 of quality.So, it's time to upgrade to a better lens that has near the same focal range.Well, there are many options: if you decided for Canon, you may take a look at the 17-40 F/4 L, while if you have chosen Nikon you could be... continue reading
You might remember my previous posts about Tamron, so, time came for the first results.My first photos taken with the new lens are already online. So far I like it, the only disadvantages I came across are:1. Slight barrel distortion at 18mm - easy to eliminate in Photoshop.2. Vignetting, probably due to the polarizer I have on the lens, also easy to eliminate in PS3. When shooting straight down or up, the lens can extend or shorten because of its weight. Not that I shoot straight up and... continue reading
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, the results on DT are yet to come, when new photos get accepted. continue reading
