Hey everybody and welcome to Camlense. Today we have got another Black Friday deal for you and this time it’s not a camera or a camcorder, it’s lenses. We’ve got these landscape and macro lenses available for Nikon DX cameras and this kit comes with the two lenses as well as a couple of online classes and it’s all available for a great price. It regularly costs $150.
If you are buying these separately, you must spend more. So, by availing of the kit, you will get two of these sorts of indispensable lenses. I think, once you got the 1855 and the telephoto zoom out of your system, a standard lens, then gear acquisition syndrome is going to kick in and you are just going to get more lenses. So, why not start with a wide-angle and a macro lens?
So, what would you use these lenses for? First, we got the 10-20 VR wide-angle landscape lens. If you are going to the city, it will be great for capturing all the buildings, architecture, if you are going to fit the entire family into a holiday photo, this can do it.
You know, you might warp Aunt Fran a little bit if she’s standing at the edge and she might create a mess. On a wide-angle, if you zoom a little bit like up to 35mm, you won’t get distortion for sure, which is your street photography focal length.
If you want things to get realistic on a DX camera, for that you got the 35mm. And know that we have mentioned street photography, this lens has image stabilization, has VR. So, if you have your lens zoomed in to about 20mm and go around with your camera handheld, you don’t have to worry about blurry shots because you got image stabilization built into the lens.
Also, if you are doing video work and don’t have a fisheye, this gives you that cool thing that looks really similar to the fisheye. If you like skateboarding kind of videos, also gives you that – ultra-wide angle of view.
So, you got your 10-20mm but you also got a 40mm 2.8. So, this one is not only a macro lens that can really take you up close to your subject but still autofocuses properly. It also gives you an amazing shallow depth of field at the maximum aperture f/2.8.
It lets in lots of light and it also allows you to get nice blurry backgrounds along with those nice bokeh effects. So, this is a nice all-around lens that allows you to get nice portraits as well as very nice macro shots.
If you are chasing after insects or if you do product photography, this lens is for you. Yeah Product photography, we use this lens for product photography all the time. It’s great because you can get right nice up-close. If you’re selling things online and you want good shots of your smaller things like jewelry, coins, and other things of that nature, this is an indispensable lens to have. It works a lot better that your smartphone camera or a point and shoot cameras.
Using this lens isn’t just switching your camera over to macro mode, this is actual dedicated macro lens and you are going to get much better results of macro shots. You are going to get more sharpness, much better close-focusing distance and it’s not gonna be a phony-baloney macro, it’s a real deal.
So, there you have it. These lenses also come with online classes. So, if you bought these lenses and you don’t know how to use them. For that purpose, you can watch these videos and learn to master these lenses. You are going to Nikon School which is their online course. You can learn about macro photography and also landscape photography. So, you can learn all the stuff and then, you can put your lenses to good use.
