Protecting your gear – It’s No Accident!

pelicancase1Recently a Pelican case containing a Canon T4i DSLR camera kit left Studio 300 in near-perfect condition. It came back bruised and battered after having been in car accident-actually ejected from the vehicle! Fortunately our patron is fine, but our beloved camera equipment took quite a ride.

pelicancase2To our collective amazement, the equipment appeared to be completely intact!  After fully testing it, we confirmed that nothing inside the case was damaged in any way!  And other than the superficial road-rash, the Pelican Case took the beating like a champ and was found to be in good working order.  Click the photos to see the damage. (These photos were actually taken using the T4i camera in question.)

It may seem like an expensive addition to the cost of already fairly expensive equipment, but adding a solid case will really protect your investment and perhaps save a disaster!

Canon 55-250mm Telephoto Lens

55-250 When taking a picture, you often need to zoom in on distant subjects. A telephoto lens is the solution.  Most DSLR cameras come with a stock lens of 18-55mm.  While this lens is great for wide angle shots, it falls far short as a telephoto lens.

Studio 300 now has a Canon 55-250mm Telephoto Lens for our Canon T4i (and other) DSLR cameras. This item can be checked out for 3-days.

Picking up where the stock lens ends, this telephoto lens has a range of 55mm to 250mm.  At 250mm, distant subjects can be easily pulled in and captured.  The lens has both Auto Focus and Image Stabilization like the stock lens, and it’s easy to capture sharply focused shots without a tripod.  If you’re curious what a telephoto lens can do for you, stop by Studio300 and we’ll show you how easy it is to use.  Meanwhile, check out the two shots below.
