I have just added the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens Review to the site.
 
While your first reaction may be "Who cares?", this lens deserves a look. Canon has significantly improved the image quality in the 55-250 IS STM over the previous 2 models. It is a good deal.

Ever had a filter get stuck on your lens? This is an easy way to ruin your shooting day – or trip. The good news is that the tool to solve this problem is probably the least expensive item in your bag.
 
Concluding "Lens Filter Week" is the Lens Filter Wrench Review. Buy several pairs of these.

When you cannot afford a filter for each of your lens filter sizes, a step-up filter adapter ring is what you need. This is a short review of a very useful product.

Preventing light from reaching the camera's imaging sensor sounds counterintuitive, but that is what you want a neutral density filter for.

Welcome to filter week at The-Digital-Picture.com. I have been revamping the site's lens filter reviews and to get things started, let's talk about lens protection filters.
 
There is a big debate over the practice of using a protective filter on your lens and the reasoning behind both sides of the argument has merit. Get my opinion and much more is found in the new UV protection filter review.
 
A UV filter review is not new to the site, but instead of having a review page for each filter size with pages most pointing back to the 77mm UV filter review for complete information, I have consolidated all of the UV filter reviews to one completely-rewritten page. Links to make finding the right filter in the size you need are now presented at the end of the review.
 
Jump over to our Facebook page and give us your take on the protection filter issue.

ISO 12233 resolution chart test results are now available on the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens review page.
 
The new 55-250 STM lens shows a nice image quality improvement over the 55-250 IS II, especially at the long end of the focal length range (135-250mm) as seen in this comparison.

I decided that, with a clear sky, I was going to stack a pair of extenders to the back of my Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM Lens and capture the "Harvest Moon" (the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox).
 
Stacking a Canon EF 1.4x Extender with a Canon EF 2x Extender requires a 12mm extension tube to be mounted between the two – to make the fit possible. The result is 600mm x 2 x 1.4 = 1680mm = Wow!
 
While you should not expect amazing image quality from this setup, the tight angle of view delivered by 1680mm is quite amazing. So tight that tracking the moon through the frame is a constant task. And, avoiding vibrations is a challenge. I opted to use mirror lockup with the 10 second self-timer to make sure that the camera fully settled down before the shutter release.
 
I was trying different exposure settings and verifying the results on the LCD. During one such check, I saw a black spot on the moon. My first thought was that I had a piece of dust on my sensor. Zooming in revealed otherwise.
 
I live well over an hour from the nearest large airport. The sky was black and I had no idea that there were any airplanes in the area. Using the 10 second timer, with the narrow angle of view, meant that I was predicting where the moon would be in the frame at shutter release. Not only did the airplane happen to cross the moon at the exact time of the shutter release, it happened to be in a perfect location over the moon. The timing was divine.
 
This image is an un-touched and uncropped (but reduced in size of course) conversion of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III RAW file. Photography is so fun.
