Photographers are only as good as their tools.
Cannon is still the market share king, so for now, let’s discuss some tools for your Cannon DSLR Camera.
Let’s get nerdy.
Canon Portrait and Travel Two Lens Kit
Camera gears tend to come in kits with similar equipment. The Canon Portrait and Travel Two Lens Kit is one such kit from Canon. This two-lens kit provides camera gears that are effective for still and moving shots. The contents of this kit are 50mm f/1.8 and 10-18mm lenses. These lenses are suitable for improving the quality of photos taken, even in low-light conditions.
The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is lightweight and has a fixed focal length. This lens enhances the ability of the camera to take clearer photos in low-light conditions. The large aperture of this lens makes it particularly suited for low-light photography. Also, one can use this lens to create a blur, which may be necessary for certain shoots. This lens is also compact and lightweight and can be easily added to your bag of camera equipment. The EF-S10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the second lens of this kit, offers excellent zoom features as it has a starting focal length of 16mm in 35mm. This lens is an ultra-wide zoom lens and enhances the ability of a camera to take photos that are further away, while maintaining a high level of sharpness and clarity. These lenses also offer special features that make them excellent accessories for photographers. The stepping motor feature provides quiet continuous and smooth AF that is suitable for both movies and photos. This stepping motor is a supporting feature for the Movie Servo AF function, and it allows the incorporation of movement into photos and video shoots.
Both lenses have excellent focusing range. The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens has a focusing range from 1.15 feet, with a maximum magnification of 0.21 X, and the 7-blade circular aperture helps with clearer and softer backgrounds. The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a completely manual device, allowing manual adjustment of the focus even in AF mode. Both lenses extend the ability of cameras and ensure capturing of clear and detailed photos.
The STM motor of the lenses also results in less noise when they are in use. Buyers of this product have applauded its features including its compactness, new STM technology. and very fast aperture.
Canon EW-73C Replacement Lens Hood
The protection of the lens is necessary to prevent unnecessary flare and light from entering into the lens and distorting photos. The Canon EW-73C Replacement Lens Hood protects lenses from accidents and makes them more functional and adaptable to everyday use.
(Typically, cameras already come with a hood for your lens, so this serves as a replacement.)
Hoods for lenses are essential protective accessories for lenses, and this particular one works with the Canon EW-73C. This hood works well with Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens and can be easily fitted in.
Several features of this hood shows its adaptability and functionality. The material is lightweight plastic and easy to carry around. The material is also durable and can be used for long periods of time. With the reverse feature of this hood, you can also properly store it without exposing it to damage. This reverse feature allows you to turn the hood in the opposite direction to cover the lens when it is stored, an extra-protective feature. This hood is adapted for Canon EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 lens. The hood blocks unnecessary light and, apart from ensuring the proper amount of light enters the lens, it also keeps unneeded flares away, as well as ensures color saturation.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II SLR Lens
As per Canon, “Until relatively recently photographers hand-holding telephoto lenses faced a dilemma. As lenses increased in power and weight they became increasingly difficult to hold steady enough to avoid image blur. The quandary was solved with the application of some ingenious technology – Image Stabilization. Any photographer who has used a camera fitted with a powerful telephoto lens will understand the term image shake. The more powerful the lens, the more any small vibrations are magnified. The excitement at the prospect of filling the frame with distant objects quickly wears off as the frustration of an uncontrollably jumpy subject and the reality of blurred images sets in. Hands typically shake at between one and five tiny movements per second, and the lens in a photographer’s grasp shakes with them. This has the effect of moving the subject off the lens’ optical axis, resulting in the appearance of a jumpy subject, and movement of the subject across the film or image plane during exposure time. The magnification of the lens works to exaggerate this effect. Unless working in very bright conditions most people will find lenses with a focal length of more than 300mm difficult to use successfully without the use of a tripod. Tripods, however, can be cumbersome, heavy and bulky – hardly an ideal or practical solution in every situation.
Canon addressed the problem with its Image Stabilization technology that was first seen in the EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM zoom lens in 1995. A special corrective lens group was developed to sit behind the objective lens group. This IS lens group is designed to refract or ‘bend’ light rays when it is moved perpendicular to the optical axis.”
The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II SLR Lens is an essential camera gear, as it incorporates new technology and offers high-quality images. It is a zoom lens that enhances the ability of your camera to capture images of objects that may be further away. This lens not only assures you of beautiful photos, but also offers durability and functionality. And yes, this camera lens was made with Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer technology.
