Nikon TC20 III

Review: Nikon D7100 + Nikon 70-200 VR II + Nikon TC20 III

Last summer I bought a Nikon teleconverter, the Nikon TC20 III. A teleconverter is a secondary lens that is mounted between the camera and the lens. This increases the distance between the camera’s sensor and the lens, increasing the focal length. The Nikon TC 20 III doubles the focal length of the lens, turning a 70-200 mm

Eyepiece Cap

What is that thing? The Eyepiece Cap?

I am sure that after buying your new DSLR you checked the box and probably knew most items packed in there. A neck strap, a battery, a cap to protect your camera when there is no lens attached, and a little piece of plastic.

The dreamer – My story

You can clearly see he is dreaming. While physically present on his bike, his mind is somewhere else. He is not paying attention to the road, his eyes are constantly focused at the swamp next to the cycle track. About 50 meters from the road
