The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Telephoto Zoom Lens is a long-reaching zoom lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 88-400mm, covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives to suit working with distant subject matter. Greatly benefitting this lens' reach is the incorporation of image stabilization, which works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 shutter speed steps to support handheld use in low-light conditions. -----
An STM stepping focus motor is also integrated into the lens' design to provide smooth, quiet, and fast focusing performance that is ideally-suited to video applications as well as tracking moving subjects. The rear focusing system, high-speed CPU, and an enhanced AF algorithm also contribute to quickened overall AF speeds. Full-time manual focus is also supported to permit fine-tuning of focus even while working in AF modes. Additionally, the front lens section does not rotate during focusing to better facilitate the use of polarizing filters.
The optical construction of the lens employs one ultra-low dispersion glass element to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range while also enhancing contrast and clarity. Optimized lens coatings have also been applied to ensure color fidelity by countering the effects of lens flare and ghosting.
The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM excels at portraiture, low-light photography, and adding an artistic edge to everyday objects and settings, thanks to its wide f/1.8 maximum aperture and 50mm focal length.
A superb standard zoom lens to get you started.
Combining a compact, lightweight body with a widely used focal length range, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the ideal kit lens or general purpose zoom lens. If you’re just starting out with your Canon EOS DSLR camera, this impressive standard zoom lens could be the perfect option. Featuring a range of excellent features, the lens offers easy handholdability, superb image quality and the portability to carry it anywhere. One of the main attractions of a DLSR camera is its ability to capture outstanding images. However, you also need a great lens to do its job too. With its quick and quiet Stepping Motor autofocus, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM allows you to create images that are beautifully sharp, with striking colour and contrast. Canon’s superb Image Stabiliser is also on hand to assist with image sharpness, reducing camera shake on still shots and during video capture.
The Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote Control is a simple, compact, infrared remote control that makes it possible to fire a camera wirelessly from as far as 16' (4.8 m). The RC-6 will operate in either 2-second delay mode or will instantly take a shot. The RC-6 is only 2.5" (63.5 mm) tall and can fit easily into your pocket or on a keychain.
Note! Only compatible in still mode. Will not trigger the camera in video mode.
