A macro lens will help you get up close and personal with your subject, allowing you to capture details that may not even be visible with the naked eye. Enriched detail, together with impressive depth of field separation, also makes these lenses great for more than just macro shots.
I don't often dedicate an entire post to just distortion results for a single lens, but ... I thought the results for this one were remarkable enough to highlight for you. If you are looking for an ultra-wide angle full frame lens that keeps your lines straight (attention architecture photographers), this one should have your attention. Here are some comparisons:
Sydney, Australia, 26 April 2017 – Canon Australia has announced that Season 2 of the brand’s locally produced Tales by Light photography adventure series will stream globally on Netflix from 21 April, following the successful launch of the Season 1 in November 2016.
A stunning cinematic experience, Tales by Light Season 2 builds on the concept established in the first series, following the journeys of acclaimed photographers as they pursue their personal projects. Comprising three in-depth episodes, Season 2 shows the endeavours of the photographers to challenge people’s perceptions through their art.
“The reaction to Tales by Light since it launched on Netflix in November has been amazing and an indication of the appetite for a photography-based series around the world,” says Director of Canon Australia’s consumer imaging business and Executive Producer for the series Jason McLean. “We know that people ultimately want help to unlock their potential with photography regardless of their level and this starts with inspiration, which is ultimately what Tales by Light is about.”
Prior to joining the Netflix documentary content line-up, Tales by Light Seasons 1 and 2 screened initially on the National Geographic Channel subscription network in Australia and New Zealand.
A brand in transition
Canon Australia has been on its own journey for the past several years, moving from the traditional focus on products and features into content and experiences that entertain, educate and inspire with the focus firmly on the photographer and their needs and ambitions.
“We’re now an experience brand dedicated to helping people achieve more with our products,” continues McLean. “Tales by Light is a great example of the value that we can offer and we continue that journey on our local brand site where we provide resources to nurture skills and creativity and celebrate people’s achievements more broadly. Our social media pages are almost entirely user-generated and are thriving communities of creative inspiration.”
Canon Australia was recently nominated in the top-five global sites in the Webby Awards “Best Social - Photography and Graphics” category alongside Red Bull, National Geographic and Nike’s Jordan Brand worldwide.”
