YouTube Content Creator Anna Akana Leads Workshop Showing Teens How to Stand-Up to Bullying for Canon Rebel With A Cause Campaign

Canon press release:

Akana Partnered with The Groundlings Comedy Troupe to Build Confidence in Victims of Bullying Through Humor, as Documented on Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Cameras

MELVILLE, N.Y., October 5, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is showcasing YouTube video creator and anti-bullying advocate Anna Akana as its latest Canon Rebel With A Cause. Since first sharing her personal story on YouTube after her sister’s suicide as a result of bullying, Akana has used comedy as her own form of therapy. Her ability to put a unique spin on typically uncomfortable topics led Canon to select her as a Rebel With A Cause, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the first EOS Rebel SLR camera. Anna’s cause focuses on using comedy to build confidence in youth that have been bullied, and the video of her cause, shot entirely on Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR cameras, can be seen here: http://Canon.us/ubcq.

Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8 review and image quality examination

Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm F/2.8 Review And Image Quality Examination

Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8: B&H Photo | Adorama

At a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • 4 Anomalous Partial Dispersion Elements
  • 2 Aspherical Elements
  • Distagon Optical Design
  • Zeiss T* Anti-Reflective Coating
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Anodized Metal Barrel, Rubber Focus Ring
  • Weather-Sealed Construction

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott tested the new, manual focusing Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8 lens. He praises the design and the exceptional build quality, the well executed weather sealing, near perfect chromatic aberration control, strong flare resistance and more. The Zeiss is not exactly “inexpensive”, coming at $2,299.

From the conclusion:

The [Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8] produces nicely detailed, visually rich images. It worked admirably for achieving my vision for each situation I put it in…including the very important area of astrophotography. What it didn’t do, however, was wow me with its exceptionalism in any particular area save the utter lack of chromatic aberrations. Perhaps I have become jaded with using so many incredible lenses in the past few years, but this one didn’t “blow me away” in the way that Zeiss lenses so often do.

As usual with Abbott’s reviews, you can go for the written article, or you may watch the comprehensive 18 minutes video below which tells you all the findings and takes a close look at the image quality of the Zeiss Milvus Distagon T* 18mm f/2.8.
