Samyang has released quite some manual-focus prime lenses over the last years. One of the most exciting is without doubt the 135mm f/2.0! This short telephoto lens consists of 11 elements in 7 groups and features Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass with Ultra Multi Coating (UMC). It is available for most common camera systems (including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus) and can be adapted to almost any camera. The lens was designed for 35mm full frame sensors, but can obviously also be used on crop formats such as APS-C (yielding an equivalent focal length of approx. 200mm).
The Samsung Bar is a premium USB3.0 flash drive with a solid all-metal construction. It is available as 16, 32, 64 and 128GB version. Not only is it stylish and tiny, it also offers 5-fold protection and impressive performance.
The Wireless Energy Control Switch from myStrom was designed in Switzerland for the Swiss market. But it is more than just a switch: It can be controlled with a smartphone, measures the energy consumption of the attached devices and can be programmed to automatically switch on and off at predefined times.
I’m a person who really likes to take photos on vacation, and I would be frustrated if I lost some (or even all) of them before I get home. When you think about it, there are many things that could happen to your camera and memory card: You could lose it, or it could get damaged, stolen or experience a hardware failure. Therefore I think it’s important to make a backup of your photos on a daily basis. But how?
If you are a Sony E mount user, there isn’t really much choice of telephoto lenses, at least not for APS-C cameras (such as the Sony A6000). The Sony SEL 55-210 is one of the few options in the price range below 500€. The perfect travel zoom? Let’s find out!
