43 Accessories Gear SpotliGht Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD LenS bits & pieces Get a handle on all the accessories you’ll need to get you snapping shots like a pro. This studio flash kit from Glanz is designed for photographers who want a high-quality studio kit without the hefty price tag. Ideal for use in portraiture and product shoots, the 250Di studio kit comes complete with three 250W/s heads, three light stands, two soft boxes and an umbrella, as well as a wireless radio trigger – everything you need to keep your subject looking fantastic and your shoot going smoothly. GLanz mini Pioneer 250Di kiT This fixed aperture lens from Tamron is not only super fast, it is also great for using in low light. Covering the standard zoom range from 24-70mm it utilises Tamron’s Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilisation to reduce camera shake and sports an Ultra Silent Drive (USD) for fast smooth auto focusing. The lens build is top quality too – featuring low dispersion (LD) elements and two Extra Refractive Index (EX) glasses. Great for outdoor shoots, portraits, landscapes and studio setups, it delivers a lovely bokeh and can be used with both digital APS-C, full-frame, or 35mm SLR cameras. Lowepro’s new 100AW Lens Exchange Case is the ideal solution for the working photographer who needs to swap out lenses in a flash. It can be worn three different ways – with a belt from the S and F Series, with the photographer’s own belt, or with the adjustable shoulder strap. The case allows you to switch lenses with one hand. It’s been designed for street, sport and event photographers who shoot with multiple lenses and who need to change their lenses quickly. The lens-exchange system feature temporarily holds and separates the two lenses as you detach your working lens and grab the second, so no more struggling with lenses as you make the switch. LowePro aw LenS exChanGe CaSe Stargazers will love the power of this spotting scope from the folks at Skywatcher. This 114mm reflector telescope is fantastic for amateur astronomers. It has enough grunt to allow you to easily view distant objects in the night sky, from giant planets such as Jupiter to nebulae and clusters. The 114mm (41⁄2”) objective diameter captures light well and it has a 900mm focal length with a rack and pinion focuser, making it easier to hone in on particularly dark sky environments.
