Manteca Camera Club Meeting

Lenses - Decoding

We will go over how to read those cryptic numbers on your lens and what they mean.

We will discuss APS-C lenses vs full frame lenses (if you didn't know there is a difference)

Prime lenses, telephoto lenses, etc, and applications for each type.

Kit lenses vs professional lenses

Macro vs portrait

VR vs IS 

1.4 vs 1.8 vs 2.8 vs 4.6

You won't just hear from me.  We will each learn from each other and what has or has not worked for someone in the past.

Not sure what I mean?  Then this meeting is perfect for you.

We will get you the information you need to put together your Christmas list for Santa in plenty of time.

We will discuss all of this as it relates to the following brand lenses.

Canon Nikon Tamron Sigma

Handout material will be provided but you should bring a pencil and some paper to make additional notes as needed.

As always we encourage you to bring your camera to each meeting.

Also, we should have time to review photos so if anyone has any photos 5X7 or larger they would like to show and discussed, please bring them.  There is no theme just bring something recent.  Matting is not required.

See you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
