    Love your equipment!!! I wish I had the money to buy the 400mm 2.8.

    Thanks for your question – please refer to 2:45 in the video – we have put a link to ND Grad filters for you. Cheers.

    Apologies if this is dumb Q, but ‘ND grad filters’ is or are what ……. ?

  5. CanonAustralia

    Hi there – thanks for your feedback. A simple UV filter will suffice to stop sand and dust from affecting your lens. You might also want to think about ND grad filters – to help you soften out the harsh light from the sun. Good luck!

  6. WildlifeObsessed

    Excellent. Advice and content without being single Solution biased. Love any input regarding Filters. For a forthcoming Safari – Namibia in Oct/Nov. biggest Issue is sand and dust, but not wanting to compromise colour etc through wrong choices. Thanks

    Hi there - have you heard of the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM? We would recommend that lens for you at this stage. Let us know how you go.

    I am a professional fishing guide here in central Florida and I would like to be able to get high quality shots of my clients catch along with being able to take outstanding pictures of the wildlife here on the refuge. Can you suggest a great overall lens? I have a Canon EOS XSi 450D.
    Thank You.

    I’m 18 years of age and aiming to take up photography at university, during the long wait this summer for my exam results I’m wanting to photograph all over Britain and this video has given me the last push and boost of inspiration I needed, thankyou.

    I must say, thank you Canon for providing the equipment I need in order to make a living from my passion. Currently am saving up for a 500mm f4 as well as the 1dX. Thank you Chris McLennan for providing some awesome insight into the world of nature photography.
