Would you like to have a 500 mm lens?

If you are into bird photography then the ideal lenses for that are the  500mm,  600mm and even the 800mm lens. They are my dream lenses. Why? Well because they take really clear and amazing pictures, at least for what I have seen by people using the lenses.

So what is stopping most people from getting one in their collection? Well its simple, it cost a lot. Depending on where you are from in the world the price can vary a lot which seems little unfair if you stay in a very expensive country. Usually Singapore or  US will sell them cheaper then here where I am staying.

I like to keep a goal which could be reachable but it should not be to easy to reach it, you have to earn it. When you have the lens you always wanted you will feel like, ok now what? So I am aiming for a big lens so that I can drool little longer over these dream lenses. With all the new versions coming out for teh same lens the older versions are getting cheaper and have a more reasonable price. So just wait and have patience and it will be yours one day. At least that is what I will keep telling myself, one they it will be mine.


What is your dream lens?

Ring flash

I love to take macro pictures of insects and flowers. I went to a photographer in a store and asked what is required to take good macro pictures. One thing he mentioned was to have a flash. He built his own flash, but I am not going to do that. I will buy one. So next thought is then, which one should I buy? There are lots of different version on the market and they all look like good options.

I have looked around the net to see which ring flash that can suit me. I found a relatively good ring flash which do not cost much. It is called Dörr DAF-14. I have read the reviews about it and people seem content with it and say it is a good one for that low price. The price is around 87 € (127 $).

So my question is if you have tried a ring flash and if you have any you would recommend? Please write your suggestions in the comment field.

Update: I have now got the Dörr DAF-14 ring flash so I will try it and hopefully be able to show pictures used with it.

I would love to own a Canon 50mm 1.4. It is still more than triple the price of the 50mm 1.8. The question is: Is it worth it?

The 50 mm 1.4 is good for taking picture where there is less light, for example taking a picture in the night near a street with few road lamps and some cars driving by. It is also of course good for taking portraits. Compared to 50 mm 1.8 this lens takes brighter pictures and also sometimes it can be felt to be taking sharper pictures as well.
