Carl Zeiss introduced the Distagon T* 2/25 ZE and ZF.2 moderate wide-angle lenses. The large image angle allows photographers to capture exciting perspectives. In many situations, a flash is an unwelcome feature - at family gatherings, in a museum or in a church for example. To capture the mood in such places, photographers gladly do without aggressive lighting and instead work with particularly high-speed lenses that enable short exposure times even under difficult lighting conditions.

Like most of you, I’ve been frustrated by the amount of dust that accumulates not only on my sensors but also on my cameras and lenses in general. It’s an ongoing battle. Take photos, clean cameras; take photos, clean cameras.

Rebels have always delivered good value wrapped up in a compact package and it’s why I personally own two—a Rebel XT and a Rebel XTi—both of them converted to infrared-only capture. The 18-megapixel EOS Rebel T3i is clearly an evolutionary model in the line, but owners of older Rebels should take a hard look at this new model because it clearly represents Canon’s new face as reflected in the previously released EOS 60D—the flip-out screen, in-camera filters, and all that jazz.

Multiblitz USA introduced the new monolight-battery-bundle GLAMKIT to the North American market. The GLAMKIT combines the TIPA Award winning PROFILUX PLUS studio flash system (named Best Flash System 2010) optional with 200 Ws (7 f-stops), 400 Ws (7 f-stops), or 800 Ws (8 f-stops) with the Multiblitz PROPAC 1 battery pack, and the 3 ft. octagonal softbox GLAMBOX 90. A sturdy trolley with a snug-fitting soft case and harness for the PROPAC battery pack with Velcro fastening straps for the included 8 ft. air-cushioned light stand completes the GLAMKIT. The battery pack/trolley combination serves as a counterweight for the flash unit on the stand, often prone to strong air drag in windy conditions – especially with the use of larger light shapers. A perfect pick for a quick 1-unit on-location set-up for glamour and wedding shoots.

Sigma Corporation of America has announced that its updated 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM is now available in Canon and Nikon mounts for the MSRP of $720.

Sigma’s 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM is the successor to the Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS , which was launched in 2007. The lens has been updated to include the company’s new “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) glass elements, which perform like fluorite glass and significantly improve lens performance. The FLD glass now complements the lens’ other, Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements and aspherical lenses, which already provide excellent correction of color aberration.

Ideal for beginner and professional photographers alike, this 11.1x high-zoom ratio lens is designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras and incorporates Sigma’s Optical Stabilization (OS) system, which allows for high-performance, handheld, close-up photography.

The enhanced multipurpose zoom lens offers photographers the opportunity to capture wide-angle shots such as scenic, landscape and group photos, and, at the long end, is well-suited for candid portraits and sports action photography. With a compact body and length of just 3.5 inches, the lens is lightweight and easy to handle for photographers who are on the move.
