How Do You Pick the Best Lens for your Digital SLR Camera?

How Do You Pick the Best Lens for your Digital SLR Camera?

Whether you are a first time lens buyer or been around the traps, the criteria you use in selecting what the best next lens (or first lens) for you is the largely the same. If we remove price and I know a lot of the readers are now groaning like a NSW blues supporter, the criteria becomes a lot clearer.

Ask yourself what type of photos you wish to take and then make your lens choice based upon that decision. Are you photos going to be macro or close up? Are they more likely to be based around your travel plans, or kids sport? Are you keen on landscape photography and so on. Once you have a fair idea of the primary style of photos you can narrow the vast list of lenses down or we can do that for you. Should you come into our store or visit us you will find that we are more than likely to ask you that very same question. What do you want to photograph?

Our range for Gadget Guy videos, whilst made some time ago now, are still very relevant. The video starts out quite general and then goes into more techy info after about 2 1/2 minutes. Please now go ahead and watch the Youtube video. If you are still a little confused about any of the topics covered, then we are more than happy to clear away the mud.
