Today, our two new Canon lenses, 24 and 35mm respectively, arrived. Both lenses are lightweight full-frame f/2.8 professional ultra-wide zoom for all 35mm auto focus cameras. These lenses are especially efficient in getting a good depth of field. These easy-to-use lenses can go with any of the cameras we have available at the Dickinson College Media Center, including the DSLRs. Remember, you can rent out a wide variety of equipment from the Media Center quickly and for free.
Ever wanted to photograph a known hotspot for wildlife but were having trouble getting shots without scaring everything off as you approached to get your shot? Or perhaps just wanted to do an easy self portrait with a DSLR? The new Vello Wireless Remote makes these exact kinds of tasks possible. Not only does it allow you to take a shake-free shot that blurs certain close-ups, macro shots, or long exposure shots, but it also allows you to get shots that normally would be impossible (i.e. getting certain “genuine” shots in street/people photography that would be tainted with “live” photography as they inevitably altered their facial expression with a photographer in front of them).
