The easiest and arguably cheapest way to improve the zoom on your camera is to move yourself closer to the object you wish to embiggen. Alternatively, you could shell out for Canon’s SX60, which features a 21-1365mm lens that offers 65x optical zoom. Yes, sixty-five times. How good is that exactly? Well, these videos should demonstrate the camera’s abilities pretty well.
If you’ve come to rely on your smartphone as your primary camera, you’ve probably found yourself frustrated at its lack of zoom or even macro capabilities. Clip-on lenses can vastly improve its capabilities, and taking a cue from those sliding puzzle games that have you re-arranging tiles to form an image, the Puzlook iPhone case has five swappable lenses on the back that slide into position to improve your shots.
Sony’s trio of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the a7, a7r and a7s, are wonderfully capable machines. Unfortunately, there just aren’t that many native lenses to choose from. Today, a new super-wide zoom enters the fold that will hopefully make these slick bodies more appealing, with some primes on the way.
Sony’s A7 line of full-frame mirrorless cameras are friggin’ awesome, but there haven’t been many native lens options, especially in the realm of fast prime lenses. That’s slowly changing, and it’s starting with Zeiss.
There are many ways to remain inconspicuous as a photographer. One way is to only use small, unimposing lenses. The guys over at MPB Photographic went another direction, as seen in the video above.
If you’re willing do the research, you can get great lenses for your Canon shooter from the likes of Tamron and Sigma. Even so, nothing quite beats the high-quality EF range from the company itself. So, if you’re in the market for a genuine, 1200mm Canon lens, you can grab one right now for a cool $177,278 Australian. We’ll wait while you sell the required number of organs to raise funds.
