A perfect polarizing filter, German quality is the best, as usual

Every amateur photographer must have a polarizing filter. It is impossible to shoot on a shiny day, or rather it is possible, but the quality of color of the sky on the photo will be bad. If you want to get deep blue colors, you can’t do without a polarizing filter. I have chosen a filter manufactured by the Rodenstock Company. It is a German company which produces optical instruments and devices of a great quality. The price was frightful, of course. I have paid about $123, however, one have to pay a lot for the quality. A filter has a mobile part that is it rotates when it is fixed on the lens. Its glass rotates to get a ...

I am not satisfied with the results

I bought the color filter for my Nikon D3200 reflex camera because I was under a deep impression after seeing the shots taken in infra red spectrum. The pictures were amazingly beautiful though of course they were processed after, in addition they were taken without color filter but some other way, that I got to know only after my purchase. To my mind an infrared color filter is a scam for most photography beginners. I will explain the situation with taking a quality infrared shot: you need to set the exposure time on your camera up to 60 or even more seconds and take the shot with this exposure. Due to low light ...

For permanent use as a protective filter

I bought this filter for 50$, it is manufactured by German brand of Rodenstock. It is known for its premium quality optics and glass. I mainly use this filter as a protective unit for lens optics. It would be not so big regret of you scratch a filter for 50$ than a lens glass for 1500$. Actually this filter is supposed to eliminate a slight dimming effect and other artifacts from your shots. The pictures taken with this color filter prove to be richer and brighter than without it. But no fundamental difference for sure! However, it has a big plus – it does not reduce luminosity of your lens. It is very important for each ...

It definitely worth its money, but there is too much incidental cost

Product: Nikon D3200 reflex camera Category: Digital Cameras Author: Algis Author´s opinion:
I have been using this camera for 1 year already, so I think I can write a truthful overview. I had bought this camera just after its presentation, today the price is different, but in general it is very cheap as it a camera of entry level, for beginners. However it has a fascinating sensor of ASP-C size, for 24 megapixels. I will not describe the body and ergonomics; let’s talk about pros and cons of this camera. Pros: - A powerful image sensor for such cheap camera. - A built-in electronic flash, which is an advantage, as the majority of cameras doesn’t have it allowing to plug-in only an external flash. - ...

The lens is bad; I do not recommend buying it for such money

I used to own Nikon D3200 camera with a kit lens, which was very bad, I mean lens was. It is expected, as everything in kit cannot be good. I have sold the kit lens fast and decided to buy something more all-purpose. I regret it very much. A new 18-200 lens from Sigma appeared to be more all-purpose. It was the second version of this lens, which had been even granted with something in 2012 for the quality, however, there were not any reviews or examples of photos in 2013. After thinking too much I’d decided to buy it for $600. By the way, the price was higher than the camera’s price. When I was buying it I thought that the focal ...

The lens is gorgeous, if we don’t mention that it is a fixed-focus lens

As I like macrophotography, I decided to buy for my camera Nikon D3200 a lens for macrophotography. I was choosing for a long time and chose the most classical and universally recognized variant of Sigma’s golden series with a fixed focusing range of 105 mm (4,13 inches). When I bought it, the price was about $1400, if I am not mistaken, and my camera cost about $500-$600, so the choosing of lens was a responsible deed for me. Fortunately, there were a lot of overviews and opinions about this Sigma’s lens, so I could estimate it before buying. Let’s start from cons, maybe. The lens if manufactured very ...

It’s complete trash, and I had great expectations about it

Product: Nikon ML-L3 infrared remote Category: Photo & Video Accessories Author: Algis Author´s opinion:
I’ve got a reflex camera Nikon D3200, it doesn’t have a swivel screen, but I produce the sight only from the screen. I don’t understand those who do it with a viewfinder, because it’s terribly inconvenient. So, the screen isn’t a swivel one, and it’s a major problem, as you have to bend and spend too much time in unnatural positions, especially when you need to press the trigger with your hand. All these problems emerge when working with a tripod, the remote isn’t applied in manual modes, so I don’t even consider them. So, I’ve bought this remote thinking that with it I would get rid of a part of the problems and I ...

A Great Outdoor Camera

Product: Sony DSC W90 Category: Digital Cameras Author: Linda Author´s opinion:
I shoot a lot, especially children who are in constant motion and finding something interesting. I try to capture all the bright and interesting events in their lives, but, unfortunately, with this camera I can not always move as desired. The fact that it has a weak flash, in poorly lit environments, it obtained simply disgusting, dull photos with a touch of mustard. I have long hoped that everything can be fixed and you just need to study carefully the instructions and set the right settings, but nothing happened. However, the pictures on the street are great and deserve praises when the weather is great and ...

The smallest camera i have ever had

Product: Mustek GSmart Mini 3 Category: Digital Cameras Author: Feejo Author´s opinion:
This was my first digital camera. It was bought in the year 2004. It is very small, the size of about 7 x 5 cm. It is so small I have felt like a spy, because the photography does not even make any noise. Conveniently, it was always possible to carry anywhere you want to go and because it takes little space in my purse and weighs next to nothing. Well, this camera actually has a bit of weight, I had just been weighed at only 40.7 g It can be used for 30 frames. It has two modes - portrait and landscape modes. It is very easy to use, charging from PC via USB port. When I use this camera I use the infrared to transfer pictures ...

This Camera Has Some Advantages

Product: Olympus SP-510 UZ Category: Digital Cameras Author: James Montgomery Author´s opinion:
This is my first digital camera. I bought it four years ago and still use it. Then I had to make a choice. Take a light and small model but with poor image quality, or a little more, with the pop-up lens and 7-megapixel photos; I chose the second option. Picture quality is quite good you can even photograph a well lit area. It is not expensive as compared to other SLR. It magnifies the image up to 10 times without loss of quality. There are several modes of photo and video, macro, etc.With a powerful flash which is enough for long distance. However, there are no batteries. It has no battery, so you have to buy 4 ...
