I’ve been using the 18-55mm near to 4 months now. I bought it with the aim of using the wider end of its focal length to practice my landscape shots. It’s actually a good performer and the pricing makes it a great value buy. I can see why many manufacturers choose to offer their DSLRs with the 18-55mm as a kit lens. It’s just very useful and applicable to most of your everyday shooting needs especially if you’re interested in those travel and vacation shots. I actually spent 5 nights in London taking shots with this lens (I simply do not understand how you people deal with that cold weather) and even without a tripod I was surprised at the quality of the shots.
Florence in Italy is one of the most beautiful Cities I’ve had the pleasure of visiting and what follows is a brief photo journal of the City, and surrounding areas. On this trip I carried with me my robust, yet somewhat aged, Canon EOS 20D digital camera supported by the impressive Canon 15mm Fisheye lens.
This is a video review of the Nikon D80.
The Nikon D80 is a discontinued cropped sensor digital SLR camera, originally launched in August 2006. The D80 is easy to find either refurbished or used, and is a good way to enter the world of SLR photography without spending a lot of money on the most up-to-date model.
Its been just about 7 months now that I’ve been using the Nikon D90. After months of online research scouring forums and retailer sites I decided to get it as an upgrade to my compact/bridge with every intention of developing my photography beyond the “hobby” level. Many folks think that their first DSLR needs to be an “entry-level” system that will help them to learn the ropes of DSLR use. I disagree. If you’re serious about photography invest in a system you’d keep for at least 3 years and learn it thoroughly.
