The EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is Canon’s ultra-wide angle zoom for its APS-C format DSLRs. Optically it’s a solid performer, with decent sharpness and minimal distortion. The ring-type ultrasonic focus motor gives fast, silent focusing and allows manual adjustment at any time. Like Canon’s other non-L series lenses, the hood is an optional extra.

The best lens I own
I must say after owning first wanting this lens, could not afford it and then getting the Sigma version of this, I had to return the sigma due to performance issues and plunge into my pocket for this lens and there has been no turning back yet. One year later countless of travels with it, countless of shots with it I am really happy with it and its performance. It took me a while to master it and wield its power but it was well worth the wait I love this lens. When I was first shopping for ...
Canon EF-S 10-22mm
its a great wide angle for cropped factor cameras... sharp and good colors!
Great lens, not without its drawbacks
Pros: - Excellent range for APS-C format, 16-35mm equivalent. For a long time was my #1 travel/architecture lens - Good build quality (albeit a long way from "L" lens quality) - Light, a great "walk around" lens. Cons: - Higher priced than it should be by about 20% in my opinion - Sharpness adequate only - Contrast low. Virtually every shot requires post-processing - Small maximum aperture makes it fairly useless as a portrait lens - Moderate distortion at extremes of zoom range (although ...
Which Lens to buy/recommend? (Canon 650D)
Hi, I'm a relatively new hobbyist with photography. I currently have the Canon 650D w/ the included 18-55mm IS II Kit Lens. I am fairly happy with the quality from it when taking family portraits and foodtography, etc. I'm now deciding on which lens to purchase for my upcoming trip to Hong Kong. While my 18-55mm does the job. I thinking of going for a wider lens. Though I'm not too sure which one to go for. The purpose of this purchase may seem a little odd or stupid but I want to be able to: (1) Take self-portraits with my mother and myself (hand held - i.e. arms stretched out without using a tripod); while maybe maximising the background/environment (The Symphony of Lights)? (2) Take a few landscape / architectural shots of Hong Kong and the crowded streets , markets, etc.
You can examine plenty of photos of Hong Kong here (along with the EXIF info) - http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=7034 Kelly Continue Reading
I've been happy with the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6, however I don't do night photography. And night time can be more challenging.

Best SIMPLE photo editing program
What program is the easiest for an absolute beginner to make simple quality adjustments to a digital image? I consider myself fairly new to digital photography. I'm 45 and was raised on 35mm film. I still try to get it right in the camera instead of depending on editing software. That being said, I'm interested in getting some editing software or programs. I have absolutely zero experience with digital editing. I pretty much stick to fine art stuff. I've got a Canon 40D and the only lenses I have are a Canon 10-22mm and a 90mm Macro. The editing I would do will probably be limited to simple image enhancements. Nothing extreme. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

It's quite straightforward to use and comes with"help" consisting of a user manual/tutorial . This too is Freeware. Hope this is useful... I also highly recommend Faststone Image Viewer. The name is misleading because it is so much more than a viewer. It has all the basic editing tools for a beginner and is very easy to use. And it's free. You can find it at. faststone.org. There are a couple of other programs there too (some not free), but all you neeed is the one called Image Viewer. It has the image capture feature; it has the viewer; it has a slideshow function; it has the editing tools... everything you need in one free package. Continue Reading
The answer to that would probably alter my answer a bit. If you aren't sure, I would suggest jpg to start. That's usually the default file format for most cameras, and while raw adds a level of creative control that many photographers want, it also adds a level of logistical complexity that newbies often find overwhelming and might hide the fun. I think a good viewer/organizer program is what you want. The already mentioned FastStone is a very good one and it is free. Google offers a good one called Picassa also free. While it is still in their line up, Google's commitment to it seems weak anymore since they've decided to 'beef up' the photo capabilities found in their other online offerings. I wish Google would clarify what they see Picassa's future being. Windows Live Photo Photo gallery is free and comes as part of the free suite called Windows Live. I've found the editing a bit TOO simple for my tastes, but it does a good job and might be a good choice if you are very ... Continue Reading
I bought a 2nd hand Canon 10-22mm and I'm noticing spots on my images. Should I be concerned?
Here are some sample images: http://imgur.com/a/kia7q  I bumped the contrast/sat/clarity on a couple so you could see it better. There is usually one spot that appears to move around on different shoots. lll be honest it is driving me nuts. Is this normal? The lens appears to be in excellent condition. Should I try and get my money back or is this somewhat normal and I am just being picky? The image inside the house is at f/8 and the others I believe are around f/11 or 13.
Yup, nothing to do with the lens, it's dust on the sensor. Continue Reading
