101: Getting to Know Lens Accessories
In this basic video tutorial by Canon, photographer Matt Kloskowski takes a look at some of the accessories for lenses and a bit of info about taking care of your lenses.
Kloskowski talks about different lens accessories starting from lens hoods (which we covered here on photographer Phil Steele video “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Lens Hoods“), extenders for extending the focal length of your camera, extension tubes for macro photography and of course filters (which we covered here quite extensively in the past).
Kloskowski also gives some good basic tips for keeping your lenses (and cameras) clean and safe such as always trying to replace lenses in a dust free environment (or at least as quickly as possible).
This video is part of Canon’s EOS 101 basic tutorial series which you can view as it is updated here on LensVid.
