How To Protect Your Lenses From Moisture

If you live in a humid climate, you know how quickly mold and fungus can consume everything. The same is true of your lenses and camera gear. 

Humidity is a killer, feeding any mold spores that have made their way into lenses, creating fuzzy spots that will ruin your glass. I’ve even had it happen to one of my lenses when living in Los Angeles and it’s not even that humid there.

Here are some really cool and inexpensive tricks to protect your lenses from humidity.

7Artisans 35mm f1.2 Review & Sample Photos

  27.06.2018   Alik   Blog, Lens Reviews, Lenses   No comments

The 7Artisans 35mm f1.2 is a compact APS-C lens designed for mirrorless cameras. It’s built with an all metal housing and a 9-blade rounded aperture with only 6 elements. I wouldn’t consider this a pancake but it’s very short.

Performance according to specs isn’t great, but the lens has some very beautiful character, especially wide open. So far, this is my favorite 7Artisans lens and it’s a lot of fun to use!
