25 May, 2020 seen 1,058There is a good saying - a photographer needs to upgrade his/her gear just only once the existing gear is…
There is a huge sale going on on Amazon for Canon mount lenses. I'm not an expert in photography, it has been just a while since I'm a lucky owner of my first Canon DSRL camera, and it has been not so while (about a week) since I own another telephoto lens, which is Sigma branded for my camera. As I'm just starting to explore this lovely world called photography after acquiring that telephoto lens I realized that my next big purchase should probably be - a wide angle lens to do a lovely photography.
So what does actually wide angle lens means? In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens refers to a lens whose focal length is substantially smaller than the focal length of a normal lens for a given film plane.
Update: I have created article on Best digital SLR cameras of 2016 for beginners
So back to that savings thing - you can save 20% and more on Amazon buying wide angle lenses (and not only) during this season of year (holiday season is approaching and I believe there will be even greater deals and savings), but hey, you don't have to wait for Black Friday to acquire your wide-angle lenses. Savings are already there.
Among those Canon mount wide angle lenses dominates Rokinon brand, as well you will find a Sigma, Samyang and even a Bower brands. Honestly speaking, I had heard just of Sigma brand before, but hey, I'm just learning this amazing photography thing.
