The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM Lens
Canon’s EF-S lenses are designed for cameras with a cropped sensor, such as the Canon 550D, 60D, 70D. Do not put an EF-S lens on a camera with a full-frame sensor, such as the 5D Mark III, 6D with EF-mount. These are special lenses designed so that the image circle matches the smaller size of the image sensor of most digital SLR cameras. Their specialised design gives these lenses the ideal properties for digital cameras, the compact and lightweight construction is an added bonus.
Super wide angle for APS-C sized sensors
With its effective focal length range of approximately 16-35mm in 35mm format, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a remarkable lens with outstanding image quality that will take your photography into new dimensions and areas of dramatic expression.
Beyond human perspective
The super-wide zoom not only gives you the freedom to get exactly what you want in the shot, it dramatically alters perspective to allow for dynamic expression. The lens allows you to get extremely close to subjects, exaggerating the difference in size between a near object and its background. Creative photographers can use this phenomenon to create excellent separation between subject and background for a strong sense of presence, or for a pan-focus effect with everything from foreground to background sharply in focus.
Small, light and close
Exceptionally light and compact for its focal length range, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM also has an incredibly close minimum focusing distance of just 24cm.
A ring-type USM works in conjunction with the camera to provide super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking – with full manual override available at any time.
Designed for digital
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off the camera sensor. An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.
A circular aperture allows for a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and getting your subject or model to stand out from the background.
The Canon RC-6 Remote
The Canon RC-6 is a wireless IR remote control designed for use with the Canon EOS 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III and 6D. You can operate the shutter release from up to 5m away with the choice of immediate release or a 2 second delay. Due to it running off an IR signal you have to be in front of the camera in order to release the shutter. The RC-6 can be used in “bulb” mode which is ideal if you like to capture long exposures. The Canon RC-6 is a great, compact camera accessory that you can take with you everywhere and is suitable for capturing self-portraits, fireworks, night scenes, seascapes and light painting. Make sure your camera is set to “remote control” otherwise the remote will not be able to release the shutter. A CR2032 battery is included.
