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!

    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

    Powerhouse, but do you really need THIS lens?

    If the answer is "Yes!" then buy with confidence. This lens dominates its niche. It delivers on its promises and is one of the classic white L lenses.I got this lens to supplement the 28-135 IS, but I've ended up rarely using it. In fact, Ive decided that there may be a better choice for many photogs.First let me begin by stating the obvious. Most images taken with this lens here and on online galleries like photosig or photo*net are taken at 400mm. Duh! I was hunting last weekend and took this lens along shooting animal pics from a blind. I set it to 400 and left it there. For wildlife and landscape shooters in particular, if the lens is going to be used at 400mm practically all the time, I think a better choice might be the 400mm 5.6 prime- costs hundreds less and sharper to boot. Going a step further, one sucessful wildlife photog I know recommends that if you are thinking about shooting wildlife other than birds, forego 400mm(prime or zoom)and get the... 5/5 P.

    Outstanding Image Quality and Zoom Flexibility - Almost Magical

    Reviews of this lens on the web are mixed with some showing soft results, particularly at 400mm. This is likely due to wide variations in sample lenses. I decided to take a chance and seem to have gotten lucky. My copy, just received from Amazon (Build date of Oct 2005) produces fantastically crisp and contrasty images on my 20D at ALL focal lengths from 100 to 400. It's almost magical. The images are much sharper using the same f-stops than those from a 70-200 f2.8IS lens at 100-150mm and virtually the same at 200mm. Even wide-open at 400mm this lens is quite sharp. At 400mm, I've compared to a very nice Canon 400mm f5.6L prime lens, with and without 1.4X teleconverter. The images have virtually the same extreme sharpness and contrast if the zoom is stopped down just one one-third stop (e.g. zoom at 6.3, prime at 5.6). With the 1.4X TC both lenses had to be manually focused but produced outstanding clarity with NO perceivable loss in quality. The focus is swift and true and... 5/5 Michael Morgan (The Last Hometown) - See all my reviews, November 28, 2005

    Attack of the monster lens grrrrrrr

    First, I just want to say... I waited most of my life to get to the point where I could take professional quality pictures. Now that I am there, it is indeed everything I wanted it to be. I'm loving this. :-)This lens came to me because I accidentally dropped my 75mm-300mm non-IS non USM lens in the Gulf of Mexico while shooting the sunset at Lover's Key State Park, Florida. Some would argue that I probably did this on purpose just because I was sick of the poor quality of that lens, and although I do share your sentiments, I assure I did NOT do that on purpose. It *was* funny in its own way, but after realizing just how much damage was done to the internals and realizing I'd have to replace it, I was in fact quite horrified. I will quickly say this for that lens - it CAN yield good pictures, IF you know how to work it. Keep your aperture around F13 and stick to bright light, and it will produce...BUTIt is NOT a pro lens, and it will NEVER be a pro... 5/5 Richard DeMar "mad scientist" (SW Florida, USA) - See all my reviews, June 29, 2008

    A must-have lens for most photographers and a few basics about f-stop.

    To me this lens is a must buy for any new digital SLR owner and even advanced users. This is one of my favorite lenses and I always keep it on my camera.You should always buy a UV filter to protect the glass on any lens you have. This in my opinion is the one thing everybody who purchases an expensive lens should do. UV filters don't affect the photographs you take but it's a layer of plastic between the scratchable glass and the world around you. It's a MUST BUY.If your photographer who's not on a budget and really wants the best lens in my opinion check out the 50mm 1.4 f-stop lens below. It retails for about $300 but it's such a better lens and has another step down in your f-stop from 1.8 to 1.4. And its aperture has eight blades instead of just five found in this lens. The effect of more blades means the objects in your background will have a smoother blur to them and generally will look better... 5/5 Chuck Bittner "Disabled comedian & gamer!"

    Must have for entry level SLR owners!

    So, you just got your Canon SLR, and want to go beyond the kit lens. There is no better choice than the Canon 50 mm f/1.8 II. I have owned it for two years. I own higher-end lenses (70-200 f/4 L and 100 mm f/2.8 macro), but end up using this lens more often than any other. On a 1.6 crop body (like the Rebel series) the lens is a great portrait length. The lens is sharp enough that I cannot on a Rebel XS (12 mp) I go to pixelation before seeing effects of loss of sharpness from the lens on test photos.The biggest upgrade from the kit lens is the huge gain in speed. This lens is very sharp at f/2.0 or 2.2, and with normal indoor light you will be able to shoot flashless at ISO400 comfortably. This was the lens I trusted for the birth of our first son, and I couldn't be more happy with the images it captured. Even in the low light of the hospital room I was able to catch those first eyes-open moments without a flash.This lens is very light (maybe a little cheap feeling),... 4/5 E.

    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.

    great lens for the money

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

    Great lens, especially for the very low price

    PROS* Very sharp across the image, even wide open.* Low Chroma. I read a test ([...]) that found higher than normal amounts of CA in this lens at some apertures, but I don't see it. My standard test is to shoot bare tree limbs on bright sunny days & look for purple fringing, especially at the edges. I'm not seeing anywhere near the level of fringing shown in some of their test shots.If anything, I'd call it "low" I read elsewhere that one of Canon's goals in adding the aspherical element to this lens was to reduce CA, so I'm thinking maybe the lens tested in photozon.de was just a bad apple.* Image Shake control works. I can't attest to how often it provides a full 4 stops worth of shake reduction, but I can see a very clear result when using it.* Fast accurate focusing. One of the reasons I purchased this lens was because I was dissatisfied with the performance of my (more expensive) Sigma 17-35 EX (the newer model), which while sharp, is just too slow and... 5/5 Trustme "notapundit" (CO) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    What a value!

    I only got this lens, vowing to only do "L" glass since using my 50mm f/1.2, because it got a sizzling review in PopPhoto. It's clarity was just under a $2,000 Nikon lens reviewed on the same page.I opened the box, and got just what I expected for under $200-a small, cheap feeling lens. It is the first EF-S I've owned, and the white mark for aligning it to mount matched up on my Canon 40D, instead of the red mark I usually use.I haven't had time to put it through the paces, but I will say that I am really impressed with the clarity of the pictures. I have a crappy Canon 28-135mm that is just pitiful in the clarity department-and that set me back $400! I put a shot of one of my dogs up for this product in the customer images. It's the one shot portrait of just her head (German Shepherd). Handheld this thing is as clear as my 50mm f/1.2-I swear!Another thing I didn't realize is that you can get close to your subject with this lens. No, I mean REALLY... 5/5 Bogus Exception (Norwich, Connecticut United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This lens has caused a mild stir on the internet in the last few months. To my mind, it's the zoom equivalent of Canon's 50mm f1.8, in the sense that it's very cheap but performs very well. On an optical level it has no obvious deficits apart from a bit of bulge at the wider settings. Physically it is small and light, and the image stabilisation works well. As a package, at this price level, it's hard to resist if you want a cheap decent walkaround lens. The only obvious competition I can think of is the Sigma 18-50mm, but that doesn't have image stabilisation, and from what I have seen it's blurry around the edges; at the very least, it offers nothing over the Canon 18-55mm IS and it's no cheaper.This is the third version of Canon's 18-55mm camera kit lens. The first two editions of the lens were regularly derided on the internet for poor sharpness at the corners, chromatic aberrations, and general naff build quality. I can't confirm any of that, because I haven't used... 4/5 Mr. A. Pomeroy (Wiltshire, England) - See all my reviews, August 2, 2008
