What is the next lens you want to purchase?

Canon LensWhat is the next lens you want to purchase?

We all have a wish list of gear… Some things on the list might not be attainable at this moment in your life, and some you could see in the near future. Although I don’t see this lens in my near future it’s on the top of my list. The Canon 24-105mm L list price: $1,056.10

24-105mm standard zoom lens with f/4 maximum aperture for Canon EOS SLR cameras
1 Super UD glass element and 3 aspherical lenses minimize chromatic aberration and distortion
Ring-type USM system delivers silent but quick autofocus (AF); full-time manual focus
Image Stabilizer technology steadies camera shake at up to 3 stops; weighs 23.6 ounces
Dust- and moisture-resistant; measures 3.3 inches in diameter and 4.2 inches long; 1-year warranty

Official Product Description:

The L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, designed to include outstanding image performance, ultimate operability and weather resistance. The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM offers a lightweight alternative to the renowned EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM. offers the highest possible optical quality with no change in aperture over the full focal range of the lens. This allows photographers to set exposure at the widest aperture and zoom all the way through to 105mm without having to vary the shutter speed. Image Stabilizer (IS) dramatically reduces image blur caused by camera shake. Gyro sensors detect unwanted vibrations, triggering the corresponding movement of a correcting lens group perpendicular to the optical axis. This alters the light path, returning the image to its correct position on the sensor or film plane. The 3 stop advantage means that photographers normally shooting a 105mm lens handheld at 1/125 sec can obtain a shake free result with a shutter speed as low as 1/15 sec, for vastly extended options in low light conditions. The ring-type USM motor found in the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM employs ultra-sonic frequency vibrations to drive auto focus with unrivalled speed and near-silent operation. A powerful CPU and improved AF algorithm contribute to speed performance. Good holding torque stops the lens with precision and accuracy, the instant it arrives at the correct focus point and without overshoot. Photographers can choose manual focus instantly and at any time simply by moving the manual focus ring without first having to switch out of auto focus mode. Circular aperture producing attractive background defocus Inner focusing, ring USM and new AF algorithms for fast and quiet autofocusing Manual focusing enabled even during AF mode (full-time mechanical manual focus) Only environmentally friendly lead-free glass used in lens construction Filter diameter 77 mm / Dimensions (dia x len)

Check out the Nikon ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control

The Nikon ML-3 Wireless Remote – You need to aim the remote at your Nikon. You can’t use the remote standing behind your camera. The reason for that is the remote needs to be pointed at your camera’s infrared sensor which is located on the front of you camera.  They’re great when you need to be in the picture too, like at a family event. The remote is small enough it will fit in the palm of your hand.

List Price: $20.50
Sale Price: $19.00

Not too much of a savings there, but still 7% is 7%.  The reviews are excellent for this particular remote!

Official Product Description:

Slim wireless remote instantly triggers shutter without disturbing camera
Ideal for subjects that are difficult to approach or for minimizing vibrations
Includes pouch
For use with Nikon D40, D40x, D60, D80 & D90 Digital SLR Cameras
Also used as replacement or spare for Nikon Coolpix 8400 and 8800

I found this video review that did a great job explaining how to use the wireless remote with your Nikon. Very detailed on how to turn on the remote and connect it with your Nikon. He shows you how to focus the camera by using the remote too! You can also use the remote in bulb mode.

The Best Camera Bag

I looked and looked for the best camera bag, and finally bought the Lowepro Sling Camera Bag. I love it!

For functionality and getting me to take my camera everywhere I go you can’t beat it!

-I was looking for a camera bag that looked more like a purse (check)
-I wanted it to feel and look small, something I would take with me everywhere (check)
-I wanted a camera bag that was padded enough I would feel fine carrying it everywhere even the grocery store or places it might get bumped (check)
-I wanted black camera bag (check)
-I wanted a camera bag that I could wear over my shoulder instead of my back for easy access (check)
-I wanted a camera bag that had and inside pocket for an extra SD card cause I always forget mine (check)
-I wanted a camera bag that I could carry more than one lens (check)

Really it’s the perfect camera bag for me. I also have a back pack from Think Tank, Street Walker which I do like. I use it when traveling or going out on a specific photo shoot. But I have been looking for a camera bag that I would take with me every single place I went. A camera bag that would become a part of my life so my camera was always within reach. This bag is perfect!

I can only come up with two things I don’t like about it, but they’re very minor! I wish the outside pockets zipped or buttoned somehow. When I put my wallet or keys in the outside pockets I am always worried they’re going to fall out. The other item I would like the adjust is the strap I wish it had a bit more padding. The little pad that comes with it for around your neck just isn’t enough padding when you’re packing around a camera. Both are easily fixed with the next trip to the fabric store for buttons and padding.

List price: $74.99
Sale Price is $59.95
