If you are new to photography or just migrating from a cellphone or compact camera to a DSLR camera, these pointers can help you select the right kit for starting out:
Photography is an extremely expensive hobby and there really is no end to the amount of money you can spend on gear and still wish for something better! This makes it very important to set a budget for yourself so that you do not get carried away. As of 2019, a good starter budget should be in the range of Rs 35,000 – Rs 60,000 for a camera body and one or two lenses. It is best not to buy too much equipment before you get a good idea of what you will be shooting. We strongly recommend that you rent from Primes & Zooms (P&Z) and try the equipment before buying it.

The Panasonic Lumix GH5s is a Micro 4/3 Mirrorless Camera specially designed for video Mirrorless cameras have been around for a while now but there is still a lot of confusion around the actual benefits of mirrorless cameras like the Canon EOS R and Nikon Z7 over traditional DSLRs like the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and Nikon D850. This post talks about a few points you must consider if you are not sure which is better for you.
DSLR vs Mirrorless is currently one of the hottest topics of debate in the photography community. There is a lot of buzz around how mirrorless cameras are the latest tech and will render DSLRs obsolete in no time. However the fact is that, mirrorless cameras are now more than a decade old. Both Canon and Nikon were selling mirrorless cameras for the last few years. The only thing that has changed in the last year is that both OEMs launched their full-frame

The 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is by far the most popular lens across camera systems, be it Canon, Nikon, Sony or any other system. It is part of the Holy Trinity of lenses: the 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200 but gets a lot more attention than the other two. The Canon and Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 lenses feature on our Top 15 Most Rented Gear for 2018 and one of them tops this list!
However, there are times when you cannot lay hands on one of these babies and need to look for alternatives. Or sometimes you just need to get out of a creative block by trying something different. Here is a list of 5 lenses that may be able to help you get the job done:
1. The 70-200mm f/4: If you are not shooting in low light or if your shoot is outdoors and you can control the distance between your subject and the background, this lens is a great substitute for the f/2.8. It is also
Sigma’s 50-500mm, nicknamed the Bigma, was an exciting lens when it was released more than 10 years back. Since then Sigma have released the 150-500, 150-600 Contemporary and 150-600 Sports lenses, all of which have been extremely popular. Sigma recently released the 60-600mm DG OS HSM Sports lens which also seems to be a hit. Most of the reviews of this lens are positive and almost all of our customers who have rented this lens are happy with it. If you are shooting wildlife and don’t mind a lens on the heavier side, the 60-600 is an excellent choice. It is sharp almost across the entire zoom range and focuses fairly fast. The lens comes with a new MO (Manual Override) focus mode that allows you to override focus even in Servo / AF-C mode – something most lenses do not allow you to do. It is built well and at 2700 gms, weighs less than the 150-600mm Sports. This lens is not easy to handhold for long periods of time although the optical stabilisation does a good job of preventing shake
I still remember the early 80s when the only content we got on television was what Doordarshan chose to dish out. Today content is easy to come by – in fact, most content is free and we pay for access. If you are a movie buff like I am, you are probably already subscribed to streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime. It is now a lot more convenient (and cheaper!) to watch movies at home than visit a theater. And if you can hook up a projector and a good sound system, you can get some semblance of a cinema theatre experience! Which is why we recently added the Playback section.
To start with, we have added two items in this section. The first is the Benq W1050 projector, a great entry-level projector that delivers a sharp and vivid image. The W1050 is a Full HD projector capable of projecting an image as large as 6.6 m x 3.7 m at a distance of 10 m. The projector h
