The Advanced Landscape Kit includes the Canon EF16-35mm f2.8 L MK II USM Lens, Canon RC-6 Remote Control, Joby Gorillapod SLR Zoom tripod, and Portrait and Landscape Photography DVD. The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens delievers higher image quality at the wide-angle end, enhancing optical performance, resolution and contrast. This lens is a high performance, water-resistant, and ultra-wide angle L-series lens. The optical design has been improved to offer better edge-to-edge image quality. All of the Canon "L" series lenses deliver optical performance equal to similar fixed focal lengths lenses, and the USM lenses do this with silent, high-speed focusing. Distortions and aberrations are remarkably small for a lens of such amazing capabilities. The Canon RC-6 remote is a wireless IR remote control that allows you to operate the shutter from up to 5m away. The Joby Gorillapod SLR Zoom tripod is a versatile tripod with a maximum load of 3000g designed for the travel and enthusiast photographer in mind.

Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8 L MKII USM Lens:
As this lens features a Canon EF (Electro-Focus) lens mount, you can use this lens on a Canon full-frame camera (Such as the 1D X, 5D Mk III, 6D etc.) and a camera with cropped (APS-C) sensor with EF-S mount (EG. 350D, 7D, 550D, 60D etc.).
L (Luxury) -series quality
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Constant f/2.8 aperture
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture stays constant over the full focal-length range, meaning no variation in shutter speed will occur when zooming.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.
UD and aspherical elements
The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM incorporates three aspherical elements to ensure corner-to-corner sharpness and clarity throughout the focal range. Two UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
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.
The Gorillapod SLR Zoom is a heavy-duty version, designed with the serious photographer in mind. It attaches to SLRs with zoom lenses, video cameras, and your own tripod head and can support a whopping 6.6 pounds (3kg)! Whether you're using your SLR camera to shoot time-lapse photos, get up close with a macro lens, capture your daughter's winning goal from the sidelines, or snap images for the local newspaper, the Gorillapod SLR-Zoom tripod is the perfect companion for your next adventure. Throw one in your bag! Please note that you also need the Joby Gorillapod Ball Head.
