POV Pole 19 inch small

best thing I have ever bought! Bear in mind you will probably end up spending lots more money on all the accessories once you buy the actual camera! but fantastic investment!

Holga Lens for Canon EOS 7D 100D 700D 650D 600D 550D 500D 450D 400D 350D...

It does what you expect. In fact the lens quality is so much better than I expected. Remember you cant use on full auto as no electrical connections. I ran on PROG and then looked at LCD screen to see if enough light. Last one remember it has 3...

Hoya GIK55GB

While basically being just what the title says - an introductory filter kit - not quite what I expected. The filters are made in the Philippines and not in Japan as I expected and there is no indication as to what type of coating they have. While I...

+ Objektiv M. Zuiko Digital 12mm f/2.0 ED + Etui SLRA-1

The Micro 4/3 system has been developing by leaps and bounds and the number of lenses, currently available, approaches 40 different models. There are a lot of ‘kit' lenses of 14-42 mm class and also 14-140/150 mm megazoom devices. However none of the...

Fujinon XF55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS – Tele-Zoomobjektiv für die XF...

I had some hesitations purchasing this lens coming from the Nikon camp. My previous 70-200 2.8 was a stellar machine to work with. I wanted to achieve a similar look but had my doubts. I knew the aperture range wasn't the best but looking at several...

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G ($1,699.95) is a modern update on the classic Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 manual focus lens. Like the older lens, it's designed with a specialized purpose in mind: to minimize sagittal coma (illustrated below). That's...

Fuji Photo Film LH-X100

If you own a X100 camera, this is an essential kit. Well built and with the same texture as the camera, the hood protects from flare, and the ring also allows you to use a 49mm filter.

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 is the smallest interchangeable lens digital camera you can buy. It's not as full-featured as some other models, but you can't argue with its size or performance.

Pentax 17-70mm f/4 AL (IF) SDM

All round use. Best bang for the buck. A little bulky, but to be expected.

Panasonic DMW-LC55 Close-UP LENS

A high quality lens, but a bit pricey, particularly since you need the adapter tube to fit it to the camera (another £20)

Datacolor Spyder LensCal

The Datacolor SpyderLensCal obviously costs more than my ice cream cone box (and its contents are not nearly as tasty)and owners of a single lens may not be able to justify the cost of this tool.But those who own multiple lenses and those who want the...

Mennon Pro Center Pinch 58mm Snap-On Lens Cap with Leash

Because of an incident in Kauai, Hawaii where I got a surprise splash form the surf. I was in the market for a collapsible lens hood. Installed a collapsible lens hood, but the canon lens cap is now very difficult to get at. The center pinch lens cap...

Kenko Teleplus MC7 AF 2.0 DGX

I use this on a 300MM lens and the optics are really good. It works fine on the 70-200mm Sony G but the autofocus hunts. There are 8 matching contacts. Everything appears to work OK but it just does not lock focus. I switch the lens to manual and...

Center pinch 67mm snap-on lens cap with keeper

The lens cap works good and it was a lot cheaper than buying it in a camera store. It is very convenient since it has the string to tie it to the camera so you don't lose it.

Quantaray Tech-10 High Speed

'HonestLarry' sent a Cannon mount version of this lens from Amazon marketplace after I posted the question (BEFORE ordering it) what mount it used and if it was a Pentax K-mount type lens. The answer I got assured me it was. When I received it, the...

As a newbie in close up or macro photography, I do not want to spend alot of money on it. this is a value for money set to start experimenting with. All +1, +2 and +4 is good for shooting macro or close up, but I have no idea how to use the 10X macro...

Hoya Pol circular HMC 58

I went through two copies of this filter and finally gave up and requested a refund. The snap ring that holds the glass in place was out both times and on one of the filters, the glass wasn't even edge-to-edge!! Terrible QA standards. I went to B+W...

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

Although I have a shaky pulse and I'm a beginner in photography, I was able to make quite long distance shots crispy and sharp. It works fantastic in sunny days, and quite decent at night. Cannot find a lens with so many attributes with this price.

Opteka 2.2x HD2 Telephoto Lens for Kodak EasyShare Z760 DX7630

I got it for 12.95 because I added it to my wish list. and then when I came back to buy it, 24.95 so add stuff to your wish list if its cheap. overall this is worth it. It xomes with a 28mm-37mm downsizer.

Lensbaby Creative Mobile Kit

The Lensbaby Creative Mobile Kit ($89.95) is the company's second crack at making an add-on lens kit for smartphones. It's a little more expensive than the LM-10 Sweet Spot Lens that we reviewed earlier this year, but the add-on lenses are smaller, and...

Lensbaby Circular Fisheye

The Lensbaby Circular Fisheye captures the entirety of the world in front of the lens in an extreme, curved perspective. It's not an effect that you'll want to use for every photo, but it's a fine example of a lens that many an artistic photographer...

Fujifilm XF18mmF2 R

I really like this lens. I think it gets overshadowed by the 16MM, but this thing holds it own when it comes to image quality. I use it with my X-T1 system and love it.
