Hahnel HRC 280
October 5, 2018

Having purchased a Hahnel HRC 280 Remote Shutter Release after losing my previous one, a Canon Remote Switch 80N3 so was unable to shoot long exposure pictures at night. Costing just less then £20 the Hahnel HRC 280 Remote Shutter Release is a fraction of the Canon’s own version and does exactly the same job. I really enjoy taking long exposure photos and like to experiment with turning night into day. I prefer to shoot…

This shot was taken on the River Hull on a chilly evening, again with no tripod so the camera, a Canon EOS 5D Mark II was placed against something steady.

Prime Lens : Fast Prime Lens On A Budget
August 21, 2018

As a keen fan of using a prime lens over a telephoto / zoom lens I made a purchase on eBay this week picking up a manual lens for less than £20.
