Which is the best Canon right angle spy lens?

Which is the best right angle spy lens for a canon? Do they work effectively? I was looking at this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Opteka-Voyeur-Ri ght-Digital-Cameras/dp/B001TQ1850 Has anyone used this one, is it good? Any better brands? Thanks

CiaoChao | Jun 30, 2012
If you want a spy lens then you can't really beat the 800mm f5.6L IS and the 1200mm f5.6L. The 1200mm f5.6L was a special order lens, and was the kind of thing that was made for the FBI and CIA, now that's a proper spy lens.

What canon camera lens should I buy next for fashion photography?

So my birthday is coming up soon and I'm allowed a new lens but I don't know which to get! I currently have: Canon: 18-55 mm Canon: 38-76mm (zoom) Zeewer: super wide macro lens NIkula: telescopic lens I can also borrow these off family: Canon: 75-300mm (zoom) Tamron: wide angle lens & a canon flash gun I'm really wanting to do more fashion/ portrait photography this summer as I would like to build a portfolio for uni (want to study photography or fashion photography/promotion). I would like to know what lens would be best for doing this type of photography (on location shoots mainly) or any other equipment that might be useful. Any advice is appreciated, the cost doesn't matter :) thankyou!

Get a 50 1.8, another speedlite, an off-camera cord for the flash and some fashion photography books.
fhotoace | Jun 27, 2012
If you may have noticed, those of us who shoot fashion use 24-70 mm f/2.8 and 70-200 mm f/2.8 lenses. Most lighting used when shooting fashion includes more than one flash, usually either four or more studio flashes or incandescent lamps (used when shooting runway events).
CiaoChao | Jun 28, 2012
Actually all your lenses have a use, and anything between 28 and 300mm (in full frame terms) which converts to anything between 18mm and 180mm has a use. I think you already have enough choice in lenses, and if you've not yet thought about lighting, you must look to get something. If you have a large studio space, then you can go for the full setup with proper studio strobes, you will want four in this setup. For a pop-up-studio setup, you can get away with using flashguns (speedlights), again three or four will do. Plus you will want light stands, softboxes/octobox and/or umbrellas, beauty dishes, snoots, grids, reflectors, maybe some barn doors and a ring light or ring light adapter.
Clevercloggs | Jun 28, 2012
Personally the lenses you have and the 75-300 are suitable for almost any occasion. If you want to do catwalk photos without flash perhaps a wider aperture lens (f1.8) of 85mm or something like that.
MW | Jun 29, 2012
50mm f1.8 would be a good bet, nicely blurred background when you open the aperture, and sharp when you close it down. Produces great portraits at about f4. As for other stuff, a cheap radio flash trigger would be a good buy to get you experimenting with different positions for the flash gun without spending loads on extra lights ect.

Get a 50mm, absoloutly fantastic lens!

If you are on a budget and on the consumer end of the prosumer spectrum, like me... and, like me, you still want a good, cheap zoom lens. This is it. (Save extra buying the bulk packaging version)Now, if you are more on the pro end of the prosumer spectrum, you probably know to look for a lens with USM and IS.If you buy this lens, be aware that you'll have to use your tripod in low light situations... there's no IS on this lens.It's a lens best used outside with plenty of day light, hey... it's an f/4-5.6, so no surprise there.Good glass though, I've achieved better pictures with this lens than the with the 35-80 which is also f/4-5.6 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2014

    great for what it is

    i needed a zoom for those times when i needed to get close to something that was VERY far away...like the other side of a valley, or 3 blocks away, or at the other side of the park, etc.in all these situations, I knew i'd most likely be outside in some kind of day light...so, as long as I'm not shooting at NIGHT, then I knew i'd be just fine. the aperture on this lens, like any kit lens, is not very compelling. but, for the price point, and for my lousy budget, this lens filled a need.I have my 16mm, 35mm, and 50mm lenses, all with f1.5 or f1.8 for serious video work, even in low light situations. so this lens made a nice addition for those other times when i just wished i could get in closer (and had the light to do it)So, the actual mechanics and build of this lens: plastic, feels cheap, like a toy, auto focus is fidgety during tight zooms, but that makes sense for any zoom lens really. the good news, again, is the cheap price point... 4/5 Jered Mckenna "Jered" (Statesboro, GA USA) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2014

    Is this lens as bad as some people say it is?

    No it's not especially if you take into account its intended users. If you use a Canon digital SLR and are satisfied with the kit lens (18-55) then buying this lens can be the perfect next step for you. Practically speaking, you will be able to increase your zoom reach to the point where you can A) photograph birds in moderately distant trees, B) be able to zoom in on the other side of a valley and frame something of your interest. Those are just two examples. One thing you will NOT be able to do effectively with this lens, however, is to take sport shots with it. How so? Consider some of the following weakness:*At 300mm zoom range the highest aperture is limited to 5.6 (You will have to use very slow shutter speed to snap fast action shots; remember the inverse relation between aperture and shutter speed.)*The lens size/weight combination makes it hard to hold steady when attached to a camera like the Rebel XT*Slow and often inaccurate auto focus... 3/5 Abdulrahman Aljabri (Jeddah) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2006

    Could be better, but works well within its price range

    After reading several online reviews of the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM lens, I had nearly talked myself out of even looking at one. However, thanks to a local Canon demonstration, I was able to play with several lenses, the 75-300mm f/4-5.6 among them. I got to try it out alongside the IS version (which costs just under 3x as much), the non-USM version, and some of their L-series professional lenses.That said, I found there to be less difference among the directly-comparable lenses (the non-USM, USM, and IS versions) than I'd have thought. On the test shots I took using a Canon Digital Rebel XT, I didn't find full-zoom telephoto shots to be appreciably softer in the non-IS version reviewed herein, nor were the images overly soft for my liking period.The USM focusing didn't seem to make as much of a difference as I'd expected over the non-USM model, either. Focusing was still relatively slow (as other reviewers have pointed out), although once an... 4/5 John Nolley II (Fairfax, VA United States) - See all my reviews, December 19, 2005

    Buy the "IS" version instead

    If you're looking at this lens, you're more demanding than the average Joe who takes photos and have high expectations. This lens is not blazingly fast (f/5.6 at 300mm), and to reliably freeze camera shake, you're going to need a 1/500 sec shutter speed, which means that with ISO 100 film, you only can lose one stop of illumination under "Sunny 16" conditions before you have to decide comprimise somewhere to get your shot.Consequently, shots into the shade, or conducted under the warmer and softer lighting conditions of the morning/evening will inevitably drive you to the comprimise of a high ISO grainy film or the bulk of a tripod to make up for this lens's lack of optical speed. If you always shoot in full noon sunshine, you'll be okay.Even though its a great tool, most people don't like to carry a tripod, so the solution is to either accept grain in enlargements, not take certain photos, spend more money to go to a faster lens, or some combination of the above.

    Sharp, fast, inexpensive

    Once upon a time the 50 mm lens was THE standard camera lens and was THE optical benchmark by which manufacturers were judged and compared. Although the basic lens focus has now shifted (at least at the low to mid amateur level) to zooms - you can still benefit from years of research and development that went into designing the 50 mm lens and this here lens may be the best lens, dollar for dollar, that you can ever buy. The question is can you afford not to own this lens?Years of development have brought us a lens that has a fast aperture of 1.8 - far faster than any consumer zoom lens - and that is sharp as a filed tack. Be forewarned about the sharpness . . . if you are taking pictures of people, this lens is unyielding in its sharpness and may well surprise you and your subjects whose every blemish is captured. The lens has a fabulously shallow depth of field if you want to use the 1.8 aperture to blow out a background. This lens is also ridiculously inexpensive... 5/5 Richard Aubin (Dallas, Texas USA) - See all my reviews, April 10, 2005

    Best Value in Photography!

    Wow! My theory now is that Canon doesn't put this baby as their kit lens because many people would decide that they DONT NEED ANOTHER ONE! And many of them would be right!Like others, I bought the Rebel XT and the 28-135 IS lens. The 28-135 is heavy and priced like a gold brick. I guess it does OK, and I do keep it mounted most of the time.And like others, I stumbled on this lens somehow, read the raving reviews, and for the price figured, "What the heck?"This lens in tack sharp. It shows the fire in the colors you photograph. The wide aperture means candles can be excellent lights for portraits. Its narrow field is great.There are pitfalls though. I snapped a pic of my face at arm's length using autofocus a while back and (1) the focus locked on the tip of my nose and my face was already blurring (2) the lens was so sharp that I saw blackheads clearly on my nose tip I can't really see in the mirror (doh!).

    Excellent Value

    I've had the 50mm f1.8 for about three months now, so I wanted to put in my two cents worth after a little field use. What originally attracted me to this lens was, obviously, the price. It is very, very inexpensive. This is likely due to the fact that the housing is, unlike its predecessor the Mark I, entirely plastic. That initially put me off, but after seeing some images posted that had been taken with this lens (and after seeing the prices of the f1.4 and the used mark I)I decided that I really had nothing to lose. There are, as with most lenses good and bad elements to this lens. Lets start with the bad.Keep in mind that if you are shooting a canon DSLR (as I am) this 50mm lens actually behaves as an 80mm lens, so it isn't that terribly wide. The fact that it is functionally 80mm can make framing shots a bit difficult. This is definitely a secondary lens and really isn't that appropriate for a "walking around lens." At least it isn't for me, as I tend to... 4/5 Ryan Davis (Jersey City, NJ) - See all my reviews, December 30, 2005

All my lenses have too long of a minimum focal length to get sharp close-ups, and I can't afford a stand-alone macro lens. This solved the issue. I was a little scared to order it considering some reviewers said they "broke the threads due to the cheapness." The threads on ANY lens are tiny and must be treated gently.

When it "clicks", it's all lined up to screw the correct way.] All-in-all, I recommend this product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 12, 2013

    Good lens, but know what you are getting

    This lens is a "manual lens" and many folks today probably don't know what that means. I've been using SLR or DSLR cameras for almost 30 years, and the definition didn't fully register with me until I received this lens.When you look through the viewfinder of an SLR/DSLR camera, you want to focus with the aperture completely open. This condition gives you the most light to see the subject and gives you the narrowest depth of field so that you can focus most precisely. Most lenses made in the last 30 years or so have been "automatic" in the sense that they keep the aperture completely open when you are looking through the viewfinder. When you press the shutter button, the aperture closes to whatever you have set (or whatever the camera's computer sets) just before the camera takes the image. For instance, if your lens has a maximum aperture of f3.5 and you are shooting at f8, then the lens is at f3.5 as you frame the picture. When you take the picture, the mirror that... 4/5 Bill - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 4/5 dbosse - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BOWER 500mm Preset Telephoto Lens for Canon dSLR XS, XSI, XT, T1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4i, 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II5D Mark III (Electronics) Granted this is NOT the quality of a Canon or Tamron but for the money it's a great 500mm lens and with the optional 2X extender (available by Bowers) you're got a pretty good quality 1000mm. The sharpness leave a little to be desired (easily cleaned up in Photoshop Elements or other software) and you'll be shooting at F8 or smaller so have to pump up the ISO or use very long shutter speeds for low light, BUT it's got a VERY sturdy tripod mount on the lens providing a more central weight distribution than putting the camera on tripod and having this long lens hanging on and tipping forward unless the grip is very tight. I like the lens and for the occasional times I need to "reach out there" 500-1000mm I couldn't justify the difference in price ​for a name brand telephoto. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 29, 2013

    It is what it is.

    0 4/5 Ishwa Ditty - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BOWER 500mm Preset Telephoto Lens for Canon dSLR XS, XSI, XT, T1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4i, 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II5D Mark III (Electronics) I've been an avid photographer for circa 35 years, working initially with 35mm and medium format negative film. I've done black & white darkroom developing and printing, and have had the grave misfortune to have to learn digital 35mm photography as a high school yearbook advisor, so I know a little about camera equipment. This is a decent lens for the price, but it is what it is: a $110 500mm lens. The pictures are decent, but not sharp. It's not a Zeiss lens. But...it looks really cool on my camera and is fun to play with. My Canon 75-300 lens is almost the equivalent focal length, but this was a killer deal for a 500mm lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 18, 2014

    Good value - useful all-in-one lens

    Like a baseball player with a decent batting average, some power, a little bit of speed and fairly good fielding ability, the Tamron 18-200 lens won't be an All-Star any time soon because it does not excel at any one thing. But, like that $500k/year utility infielder, this lens DOES provide a very good all-around value for what it is. Does it compare to a prime lens at either end? Heck, no. Is it a good lens to use when you can't carry a wide choice of lenses with you? Absolutely.I've been using this lens on my 20D quite a bit and have only a few minor gripes: it tends to hunt for AF (especially as you get closer to 200mm), and it's not the quietest lens I've used.An earlier reviewer mentioned that it maxed out at about 160mm. My own analysis shows that it is short of 200mm, but not by that large an extent; I found it much closer to 190. Still, there's no doubt that these zoom lenses with extreme ranges like this have a built-in fudge factor... 4/5 A. C.

    Never ceases to amaze

    I have owned this lens for over a year now and it never ceases to amaze me when I see the photos it produces. Over this last year I have come to learn a thing or two about how to use this lens.1) If you are going to shoot indoors, or in low light, with a long focal length (like 200mm) use a tripod or plenty of ambient light. This lens doesn't have a built in image stabilizer so you are going to steady the lens with the tripod or use a real fast shutter speed to minimize your hand jitter.2) Use a smaller aperture. I have found that my best photos come from an aperture of 8.0 thru 16. These apertures aren't great for bokeh (background blur) but they sure do allow you to take razor sharp pictures.Praise.Focal range. With one lens you are able to take nice wide-angle shots (18mm) and with the twist of zoom ring you have a nice telephoto lens (200mm) Definitely a good walk around lens for the day at the botanical gardens, museum or... 5/5 mcenut (North Salt Lake, UT) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras (Model A14E) (Camera) I have owned this lens for over a year now and it never ceases to amaze me when I see the photos it produces.

    You get what you pay for (an echo), but...

    The lens is cheap, and I know enough about optics and cameras to be forewarned that I may have just thrown away $17.00. The lens arrived in a plastic bubble envelope (Sigh). I was prepared for the worst. The manufacturers box was crushed badly (second Sigh). Then I find that this is made by Vivitar, a fact not mentioned in the product description (well maybe this isn't so bad). Then I noticed that the magnification factor is 0.43 and not 0.45x as shown in the product photo (Not a real big deal, but kinda makes one wonder how careful these folks are). I tried it out on my Canon T2i 18-55 lens. There is vignetting at 18mm zoom, although the manufacturers suggestion is to use the maximum wide angle setting. However at this setting it is the equivalent of a 12mm lens (35mm film photography-I just can't get used to the small sensor focal length factors). Vignetting disappears at about 24mm zoom (16mm in 35mm equivalent). At 35 mm zoom the lens gives me a 24mm focal length... 4/5 J.

I take a lot of macro shots and didn't want to invest in a big clunky separate lens. This does the trick perfectly.I just upgraded to a digital SLR and didn't want to buy a separate lens. This screws onto the existing lens and not only does the macro but the wide angle too. I can leave it on my regular 28-55mm lens all the time.You do get a "tunnel" effect at the corners at the widest angle but if you zoom in just a bit , it disappears. I kinda like the effect with the tunnel on some photos.It is what it is for the money- a great value.Joe 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 14, 2011
