    Lens recommendation for Hiking

    Hi Vicreo, Most of the images I posted in the Wildlife thread here on Expedition Portal were shot with the latest Canon mount Tamron 150-600mm Di VC USD G2 zoom lens on a Canon 7D Mk II body (usually). The Tamron 150-600 is not a perfect lens, but it is sharp if used carefully with long...

    Convert slides to digital

    And for that same quarter you could go to a full length Saturday Matinee.... The trick to copying slides with a macro lens is good even consistent color temp illumination and some method of holding the camera and lens holder all still while you are working. I am a fan of VueScan software, I...

    Lens recommendation for Hiking

    Happy to help. It is not a perfect lens for everything , but for many things and a walk around "only lens" tool, I really like it.
