"GREETINGS FROM GREECE!!!

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A CANON EOS 1200D WITH THE IS 18-135 LENS,MY LOVE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY IS SOMETHING THAT I CANNOT EXPLAIN IN WORDS.
I AM ALSO AN OFFICER IN GREEK MERCHANT MARINE WHICH MEAN THAT I AM TRAVELLING ALL AROUND THE OCEANS.
I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD ASSIST WITH SOME LENSES REGARDING SHOOTING PHOTOS AT SEA AND ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT AND ALSO ANY SUITABLE TELEPHOTO AND A PORTRAIT LENS.

YOUR BLOG IS AMAZING

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE"


Hi YIANNIS,

Thanks for your question about the Canon Rebel t5 1200D. It's a quality entry-level DSLR that has a lot of great features for the price.

Canon 1200D Weather Seal


Unfortunately, the 1200D does not have any environmental seals so you'll have to be extra careful handling it under adverse conditions.

I shoot with weather-sealed Canon bodies and weather-sealed Canon "L" lenses and I try to be very cautious when I shoot beach portraits. Usually I'll keep my camera and lenses inside my camera bag as much as possible.

The wind will carry tiny sand, dust, water,and salt particles. After each photo shoot I'll wipe off my equipment several times with clean, damp cloths.

The 18-135mm lens is a good choice for an APS-C camera body like the Canon 1200D. The 1.6x crop factor of the lens with the 18-135mm lens gives you the equivalent view of a 28-215mm lens.

If you want to shoot birds at sea you will want a longer lens like the Canon 75-300 Lens.

For nightime photography, photographers often go for fast wide-angle lenses (f/2.8 or faster) for shooting the stars and, of course, a good sturdy tripod.

Please feel free to ask me any further questions if you want to get clear on something.

Thanks again,
Bruce
