    See all customer reviews

    Product Description

    The LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 is a large-diameter standard lens compatible with all L-mount cameras for maximum versatility, yet it has a compact size and weight. Ideal for a wide range of photography, from landscape to portraits and snapshots, this lens uses three aspherical lenses to achieve both high depiction performance and beautiful bokeh. An excellent choice for video, it suppresses breathing during focus and realizes smooth exposure change by micro-step control of the aperture, enabling high-quality video expression. By using one ED lens, chromatic aberration is well suppressed. This compact, lightweight, and dust-*, splash-*, and low-temperature resistant lens is easy to carry and dependable, even when shooting outdoors. * Dust- and splash-resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water. • L-Mount is a trademark or registered trademark of Leica Camera AG. • Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.

    Product Description

    The Celestron EclipSmart 3-Piece Solar Eclipse Observing, and Imaging Kit is a must-have to view and photograph partial and total solar eclipses—like the upcoming 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse and 2024 Total Solar Eclipse. Affordable, easy to use, and best of all, Solar Safe, the Celestron EclipSmart 3-Piece Kit features solar film that conforms to the current ISO standard. With this kit, you’ll be totally prepared for eclipse day. You receive one pair of premium, durable plastic eclipse glasses with wraparound-style arms for a comfortable fit. The glasses are equipped with sturdy plastic lenses with Solar Safe film on the inside. The handy photo filter will help you capture images and video of the Sun with your smartphone or camera. Simply place the filter over your camera lens, and its delicate imaging sensor is protected. It works with phones, camcorders, action cams, point-and-shoot cameras, and DSLRs. Only remove the filter when the camera is no longer pointing at the Sun. Finally, this kit includes a 32-page booklet packed with helpful information, including observing tips, a detailed eclipse map, and a city-by-city timetable. Solar Safe Technology - EclipSmart solar products feature Solar Safe filter technology—the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation—including IR and UV light—plus 99.999% of visible light. Celestron Solar Safe filter technology is SAFE for direct observation of the Sun and has been independently tested to conform to and meet the transmission requirements of ISO 2312-2:2015(E), Filters for Direct Observation of the Sun, EN 1836:2005 + A1:2007 (E) for an E15 Filter for the Direct Observation of the Sun and AS/NZS 1338.1:2012, Filters for Eye protectors. Important safety note: inspect your glasses and photo filter before every use. Do not use and discard if the solar film is damaged, torn, punctured, or separated from the frame in any way. Do not use the glasses or photo filter in combination with any magnifying optical device (i.e., telescopes, binoculars). Upcoming Eclipses: 2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed “Ring of Fire” will encircle a darkened Moon during a spectacular annular eclipse. This special type of partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far from Earth to cover the Sun completely. The Sun’s corona is not visible during an annular eclipse. 2024 - On April 8, 2024, the Moon will completely cover the Sun during an awe-inspiring Total Solar Eclipse. Observers within the path of totality will witness the Sun’s dazzling corona, observe the “diamond ring” effect, and see day turn to night.
