Having recently purchased a DSLR camera (Canon T2i) as an early Christmas present for myself, I’ve been experimenting with it in various shooting scenarios (inside, outside, lowlight, bright light, fast action, etc.).
While doing a heap of research on digital photography before making the big (read: pricey) purchase, I’ve run across many websites that have helped along the way. One of the sites is LensHero.com, which has helped me demystify searching for additional, specialized lenses for my new toy.
While testing my new camera, one of the facts I’ve discovered is that my work place, where I’ll be taking many pictures, is surprisingly low-light. And the lenses that came with the package I’ve purchased only have apertures that allow for just ISO 1600 or more photographs at shutter-speeds over 1/120. The grain can be taken away with retouching, but I’d much rather just look into a new lens.
While browsing through the news at LifeHacker, I came across LensHero.com.
LensHero.com helps a photographer sort through lens through camera-type, specialty, and more, and then lays out the specs in an easy-to-understand way to help with the purchasing process.
If you’re in to digital photography, or researching for your big purchase, you should check it out.
