Rate & Review

The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card (pictured), and "Photographer's Grey" coloured endpapers for metering. With such a comprehensive - yet accessible - approach, both amateur and professional photographers alike can release the massive potential of their systems, with superior results.

Worldwide, Tamron lenses are recognized for their innovative specifications, superior resolution, compact designs and ease of use. Written by an expert photographer, Ammonite Press Tamron Lenses The Expanded Guide explores the entire range of Tamron interchangeable lenses for digital and conventional SLR cameras. Jargon-free information is given on lenses from the standard, macro and wide-angle types, to special lenses from aspherical APS-C models to the high ratio zoom lenses of which Tamron was the pioneer in 1992, when it released the 28-200mm model (the most current lens of this type is the 18-270mm, the world's first 15× zoom lens made for DSLRs). Also included is information on Tamron's discontinued models, which are still widely sought after by photographers, including the manual focus Adaptall series, which have interchangeable mounts for multiple camera brands, and their T-mount adapter system. For each featured lens in the range there is a special practical photographic project, covering subjects that include seashore and landscape, low light, sport, people, animals, birds and insects, flowers and still life, travel and reportage, and using filters. The book comes with a pullout quick reference guide to depth of field tables for a selection of focal lengths, for convenient use "in the field".

About the Author: Andy Stansfield is a hugely experienced freelance photographer and author whose work has been published around the world in both magazines and books. He has photographed a myriad of diverse subjects: from Queen Elizabeth's 80th birthday celebrations to the wilds of Eastern Europe and Asia.
