Tamron SP 10-24mm f 3.5-4.5 Di II LD AF Tamron's widest zoom ( 480, street), this lens belongs to the exclusive SP (Super Performance) line, which traditionally offers stronger resolution, contrast, and flatness of field than the company's other optics. A digital-only lens, it's a 16-37mm equivalent on DSLRs with APS-sized sensors. Two elements of Low Dispersion (LD) and one of high refractive index (HID) glass promise better control of chromatic aberration. It's slightly faster and has a...

Tips From A

Text by Laurence Chen photo by Rick Dahms Getting a red-hot photo under pressure seat. Portrait photographer Rick Dahms was hired to shoot a magazine cover of glass artists as they gave a live workshop demonstration at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. The challenge didn't faze this Seattle-based photographer (www.rickdahms.com). And by watching two types of professionals at work, he says, the audience got double their money's worth. With a mantra of location, location, location, Dahms revels...

Rule

Slow and steady gets the shot By Dan Richards breath, and read carefully Tins isn't really a rule. It's more like a fun formula. Exposures of about 5 seconds (that means 4 to 8, give or take a few) put you in a zone of unique effects. Crowds turn into swirling abstracts, nighttime traffic stretches out in neon ribbons, and moving water turns to mysterious ground-hugging mist. What's so special about 5 seconds Shorter, fractional exposures such as 1 8 sec can be annoyingly blurred. In longer...

Lens Test

Imperceptible range at 14mm (0.11 ), amazing for an ultrawide. Light falloff left the Tamron's corners by f 5.6 at 10mm, and there was no discernible vignetting at the other tested focal lengths. Wow This finding was also stronger than any competing lens that we've tested, including Tamron's 11-18mm, which produced darkened edges to f 8 at the two tested focal lengths. Close-up performance was also stellar. Its maximum magnification ratios at the uniform close-focusing distance of approximately...

By Debbie Grossman & Dan Richards The problem We have a soft spot in our photographic hearts for pictures like this, which take a commonplace object and transform it into an eye-catching abstract. Use of a long lens (the maximum of its zoom range, for a full-frame equivalent of 300mm) exaggerated the undulations of the fence by compressing the depth, and the sidelight creates the mirroring shadow. But your eye follows the fence up the frame and dead-ends at the fence in the distance. This...

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II does live up to its billing. It takes a great full-frame DSLR, the original 5D (Pop Photo's 2005 Camera of the Year), boosts damn near everything, adds high-definition video capture, and turns in an overall performance that makes it a virtual steal (or at least as close as a steal comes in this price bracket).

Also, you can use any Canon-mount lens, even a fisheye or a Lensbaby for outrageously creative footage. The downside Once you start shooting video, the aperture is locked, and you're stuck with slow contrast AF or manual focus. If you need to refocus during a scene, Canon suggests you do so manually. We found this difficult, since the viewfinder blacks out and all you have to go by is the live view on the LCD. Due to file-size constraints, your HD clips are limited to about 12 minutes.

Use a gray card Zoom in and focus on it to let the camera's metering system suggest an exposure based on a midtone. Use AE-L to hold this exposure...
