Unboxing Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens | Tips & Techniques

Unboxing Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens
   Today on Tips & Techniques we unbox a very popular lens from camera lens maker Tamron, the SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD lens.  I take a close look at this zoom lens and give you my first impressions and see if you are getting your hard earned moneys worth.




About this product:

   The Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens is known as one of your better choices when looking for a lens in this zoom range if your not yet ready to purchase one of the more expensive pro quality lenses from Nikon or Canon that can cost over $1000 more then this lens.  This lens also compliments many wide to moderate-tele zoom lenses like a 24-70mm for full frame or a 17-70mm for aps-c "cropped" sensor cameras. This lens was Tamron's first to feature the USD (Ultra Sonic Drive) auto focus motor and VC (Vibration Compensation) for image stabilization. With an effective focal length of 112-480mm on Canon APS-C bodies, it can make a great lens for anyone wanting to get into wild life photography and with a aperture of f/4-5.6 it also makes a reasonable portrait lens, while it isn't a f/2.8 lens it can still offer some reasonable background blur. Tamron states this lens can shoot as many as four shutter speeds slower then otherwise possible on none image stabilized lens and over the next few months I will put that to the test.

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.

Many photographers are taking to the skies with quad copters and other various unmanned aircraft to get amazing views for both video and still photos. But looks like this could come to an end as the US pushes to put strict limits and force registration of these air craft.
