An excellent Canon L series lens

Advantages: Solid build quality, excellent results, quick focussing, quiet motor
Disadvantages: Rather expensive, could be heavy if carrying around all day

New prices are around the £1100-1300 mark - I saw a second hand one in my local camera shop last spring for around £800 and jumped at the chance. Hardly used at the time, but I've made up for that now.... As an aviation photographer who specialising in ...

Review of Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 AF

A serious lens for serious photographers!

Advantages: image quality, image stabilising feature
Disadvantages: Not cheap

This lens is a major purchase, as the typical retail price is £1,200-1,300. However, if you are keen on sports or wildlife photography the price is fully justified: The image quality is superb, very sharp, great colours. I first used this lens to photo ...

Review of Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 AF

Good, reliable flashgun.

Advantages: Compact size.
Disadvantages: Shame it can't wirelessly trigger.

...This is my workhorse portably flash. I used it in conjunction with the Canon 5D body, and it's not let me down yet. It's equally at home being used directly on the camera, or being taken off and triggered with a cable or wireless trigger (you'll have t ...

Review of Canon Speedlite 430EX II Hot-shoe clip-on flash

Canon gadget bag. Excellent camera bag for your canon gear.

Advantages: Big enough for the average user, strong, comfortable to carry, flexible in use.
Disadvantages: More than one very long super-telephoto lens would be more difficult to accommodate.

Canon gadget bag When I recieved this bag I expected the bag to be slightly bigger than it actually was, but it is very flexible to use and you can fit a surprising amount of gear into it, without it being so big that it is awkward to use. I ha ...
