Today's post is to alert you to a special 2 day event we are hosting here at Camera Land this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15th & 16th.
Camera Land's Pre-Black Friday Multi Vendor Event
There will be representatives from many of the Camera and Sports Optics companies here offering all types of Special Incentives.
Being that our Sports Optics clients are from all over the country, even many different parts of the world we do not expect you all to fly into NY for this event (although it would be nice to meet you) so we are extending these opportunities to you on a call in and speak with us basis. Give Doug, Neil, Joel or Scotttie a call @ 212-753-5128 to discuss the Camera or Sports Optic that you're interested in and we will do our best to make you happy you called. Being that our forum brothers and sisters are an important part of our Camera Land family we will honor these opportunities from today thru Saturday.

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.

Portraiture is a popular format for both professional and casual photographers, and as with any specialty, it requires certain tools. While most people don’t have the resources to go out and get top-of-the-line gear for portraits, it’s easy to get started with a basic setup and add to the collection over time. Check out these helpful tools and techniques for portrait photography from Camera Land of NYC:
A basic setup for shooting portraits generally includes a backdrop, lights (at least two), and stands for everything. A clean background can be easily improvised with a blank wall or other surface, but a stand with colored paper (or other material) will allow you to choose different colors and textures at any place and any time.
Light control is essential for indoor shooting. It’s often very difficult to improvise with household lights, since they can bring out shadows or wash out colors. Studio lamps are designed to provide soft and even illumination around the subject. Lighting peripherals that can make your life easier include a light meter, reflectors, a snoot, and a honeycomb grid set.
Portraiture is not just a formula of close-ups and poses; props can provide you with the freedom to take amazing portraits. Feel free to get creative with lighting, distance, and perspective. Many aspiring portrait photographers find it fun to experiment with items such as stuffed animals, fans, stepladders, and clothing. Just be sure that any props do not create a distraction and detract from the subject.
Since Camera Land opened doors in 1957, we’ve been one of New York City’s most trusted sources of brand name camera gear and sporting optics. Our team can also provide expert advice and repair services to help you get the most out of your equipment.
