Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS II vs EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens Review 

(If you can't see the video, please click here.)

The Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS is often seen as the big brother to the EF-S 55-250 IS, but for all intents and purposes, they are more equal than not.

Sure, if you're going to be upgrading to a full frame dSLR or just shoot with a 35mm film camera, the 70-300 is the best option, but otherwise the 55-250 is a really nice piece of glass that doesn't cost the earth.

Thanks, Rob.

Beginners Guide To TTL / Automatic Off-Camera Flash Cords

(If you can't see the video, please click here.)

It's not always practical to have a light stand to mount your off-camera flash on, and this is where a TTL cord can come in very handy. TTL cords not only allow you to get that flash off the camera to make the light more interesting (and flattering) but they'll also maintain the automatic functions of your flash, making it so easy to "run and gun"

TTL cords also come in handy for macro work where you want to experiment moving the light source around, so pick up one that's compatible with your cmaera and flash, and have a blast!

Thanks, Rob.
