If you are new to the world of SLR photography there’s a lot of things you need to learn, like what new lens should I buy for my camera? With so many choices out there, it’s hard to know exactly what the right lens is. Should you buy a wide-angle? And what if you want to take macro pictures? Which lens will give you the results you want? And what if you have a set budget to work with?
Well now there is a new website to help you sort through all the decisions and find just the lens you want for the right price. The folks at Snapsort, the camera comparison site that helps users find their perfect camera, have created a new site called Lenshero that helps people find just the right lenses for their camera. For many people purchasing their first or second lens the process can be frustrating, especially for beginners who don’t know where to start. LensHero simplifies the process, allowing photographers to find lenses compatible with their camera, and easily explore lenses based on style of photography and budget.
Finding the right lens on Lenshero is incredibly easy. Start off by putting in your camera. Then select the kind of lens you are looking for. You can choose a style of photography like macro, sports, wildlife, etc. If you are looking for a zoom lens you can use the zoom selector to view the exact angle of coverage that you need.
Then just enter your budget for the lens and Lenshero will offer up the perfect choices that fit your parameters. You can even narrow the selections by manufacturer.
To help celebrate the launch of the site, Lenshero is running a contest for readers. You can win cool stuff including a new lens. To start looking for your new lens, head to Lenshero.com and don’t forget to click the contest link to enter to win.
