    Pro Gear: The Promaster Photographer's Shooting Vest

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Photography is all about capturing moments, and the perfect shot can be ruined by something as simple as a full memory card or low battery. A good camera bag can hold all the necessary items and then some, but digging around for the right item can take precious time.

    The Promaster Photographer’s Shooting Vest is the perfect solution for the working photographer. With 21 pockets in various sizes and snap-shoulder epaulets, you can easily manage all of your gear and focus on getting the shot. An oversized design, heavy-duty zipper, and vented back and mesh liner all help to keep you comfortable under all conditions—even when the pockets are filled.

    Camera Land of NYC is here to serve all of your photography needs and provide great savings on professional camera equipment. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced professional, our team can help you find the right gear. Take a look at what some of our past customers think of us and call (646) 789-4830 with any inquiries.

    Sports Photography 101

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Everything in sports happens fast, and taking attractive photos can be especially challenging for a novice. Fortunately, there are some photography tips and tricks that can help you get the results you want with minimal trial and error.

    Equipment
    Photography is more about skill level than equipment, but there are some camera features that will make your life easier and save time. A camera with a continuous focusing function will automatically track movements across distances and refocus accordingly without you having to constantly press the shutter release button halfway—just be sure to have extra batteries when using this feature. A camera that can take multiple photos per second is also helpful for isolating particular moments during intensive action.

    Composition
    While there are many elements of good composition, it can be helpful to focus on a few elements if you’re just getting into shooting sports photography. A good rule of thumb is to keep the horizon as level as possible. If you low and close to the action, be aware of busy backgrounds and avoid visual distractions such as a moving car or brightly clothed bystander. If the venue or game regulations prohibit you from getting too close, finding a good overhead spot where you can still capture facial expressions provides a great opportunity for shots with a clean background.

    Editing
    Even if you don’t have extensive post-processing skills, something as simple as cropping an image or adjusting color levels can completely transform an image. When cropping an image, try to keep the subject whole without cutting off parts of the body. It can also be helpful to adjust the exposure to bring out bright colors or dark uniforms and avoid that “washed out” look.

    Camera Land is one of New York City’s oldest and most trusted camera stores, and our inventory includes a wide range of brand names at competitive prices. We welcome photographers of all experience levels, and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you find the right camera equipment for your needs.

    We had a demo day showing some Zeiss scopes, one of which was the Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-15x42 We took a few out of boxes, pushed them into rubber grips on wood stocks and after the event we packed them back up. We would not put these few scopes back into new inventory which presents the opportunity for todays "Deal of the Day". We're knocking $200.00 off of these scopes.

    The Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-15x42 - Z-Plex #522621-9920 is reduced from $949.99 to only $749.99
    &
    The Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-15x42 - Z-Plex w/ Lockable Target Turret #522627-9920 is reduced from $1049.99 to only $849.99

    These scopes are as new in the original boxes with full warranty. If you are interested please give us a call @ 212-753-5128.

    The CONQUEST HD5 features a superior 5x variable magnification range, new ballistic lockable turrets and redesigned RAPID-Z ballistic reticles all built into the most compact SuperZoom 1-inch riflescope in the industry. In addition, optical enhancements coupled with traditional features such as the Carl Zeiss' proprietary T* lens coating for unsurpassed light transmission and LotuTec® water-repellant hydrophobic lens coating will make this riflescope line an industry benchmark. Quite simply, the CONQUEST HD5 with its 5x SuperZoom sets a new standard for features and performance.

    The advanced design of the new CONQUEST HD5 includes rubberized magnification rings with finer adjustment than previous versions of CONQUEST rifle scopes, updated ergonomic turret design, generous mounting space and a lower profile for easy transport. Selected models also feature an "all new" lockable target turret for added speed and versatility in the field.

    The most versatile of the HD5 line, this 3-15x42 riflescope has longer range capability, and is built for the mid to long range shooting distant. Extra compact and low profile, the 3-15x42 is the perfect solution for the mobile Western hunter in pursuit of elk, mule deer, antelope or even the hunter climbing mountains in search of sheep. Also, this compact length, low profile scope set at 3x magnification works perfectly for close range and fast acquisition hunting situations. This scope features side parallax adjustment, Z-Plex reticle in either hunting turret or lockable target turret.
