If your computer's hard disk fails, and you don't have any kind of backup, you will lose your entire digital photo collection for good. You might not enjoy thinking about it, but it's a fact that has to be faced. In my opinion you shouldn't put too much faith in recovery utilities and specialist data recovery companies. The success of these depends on the...

Now that you've mastered the standard zoom lens that came with your D-SLR, you have to be asking yourself "what's next?" You bought a D-SLR instead of a compact camera so that you could change lenses. The question is: which lens to buy first? The answer is easy, but it all depends on what kind of pictures you like to take.

This ultra-telephoto
zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring
the subject close and short perspective. Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer)
function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower. It is
ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting. Three
SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic
aberration. This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimizes fluctuation
of aberration caused by focusing. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare
and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.
This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed
AF as well as full-time manual focusing capability. The addition of the (optional)
1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 210-700mm F7-9 MF ultra-telephoto
zoom lens or a 300-1000mm F10-13 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively. A
removable tripod socket (TS-31) is included as a standard component.

of the SensorScope System, and the overall system itself, are what earned the
DIMA award.

If you ever want a unique point of view try a "fisheye" lens. Like
looking through a door peephole (which in fact is a "fisheye" type)
this order of lens sacrifices linear correction in favor of a very wide angle
of view. Originally made for creating "full sky" images when pointed
straight up, they had long ago been adopted by photographers for creation of
decidedly different points of view, and, today, even doing QuickTime movies
to display the interior of a condo or vacation home.
