    Learn How to Capture Photos of Lightning Bolts

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Getting that perfect picture of a lightning bolt is always a great feeling. If you have never captured this shot before, you can do some research to figure out how to snap the perfect photo. The right planning can help you get a great shot that you can use in your portfolio or put on display in your home.

    As you will see in this video, it is important to have a quality camera and tripod to capture a lightning bolt photo. Aim your camera at the thundercloud to prepare for the coming bolts. Set the exposure on your camera for as long as possible and then start it. Once lightning strikes, you will have a beautiful photo!

    Camera Land of NYC can help you prepare for your lightning photo shoot with the right equipment. Learn about our selection of cameras and camera accessories by calling us today at (646) 789-4830. You can also browse our selection at our website. 

    Deal of the Day 1/29/2014 Reduced from $829.00 to only $499.99!

    Last updated 2 months ago

    As I am sure you are aware by now, last year we established a  "Deal of the Day" section on our site. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. 
    We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. 

     

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on a   Swarovski Demo item. We snatched up all the demo/display units for the   Swarovski 10x25 Compact Binocular which are in as new condition in their original boxes. This binocular was selling for $829.00 new and we are knocking them down to only $499.99 while we've got these units available.
    Available in both Green and Black, your choice.


    Product Highlights:
    A Premium Pocket Unit
    "Twin-Bridge" Design
    Fits in Shirt Pocket or Glovebox
    Waterproof & Fogproof
    Fully Multicoated
    Swarovski's Exclusive Multicoatings
    Bright BaK-4 Roof Prisms
    5.4° Angle of View
    Sophisticated Twisting Eyecups
    Made in Austria


    The Swarovski 10x25 B Pocket Binocular is a tiny, watertight and fogproof binocular worthy of the esteemed Swarovski name.  It has a quite unusual optical formula, with 16 total lenses, that gives a large 5.4° field of view (for a compact 10x unit) and high image contrast from the center to the edge of the eyepiece.  The twin-bridge 10x25 B Pocket is a tough yet sophisticated companion for long journeys, with superior optical performance in daylight conditions versus more common binoculars.  It has Swarovski's proprietary SWAROBRIGHT, SWAROTOP, and SWARODUR multicoatings for extremely-bright, high contrast images.


    The turning-type eyecups have just enough tension so that you can actually leave them in any intermediary position, rather than just fully extended or collapsed.  Focusing is done with either your 4th or 5th finger, at the end of the binocular furthest from you.


    An extreme-quality pocket-sized 10x25 5.4° roof prism binocular
    Folding double-axis design fits in shirt pockets, jacket pockets, or vehicle gloveboxes
    Individually tested for watertight, fogproof performance
    Swarovski's proprietary multicoatings upon each air-to-glass surface

    Deal of the Day for 1/28/14

    Last updated 2 months ago

    As I am sure you are aware by now, last year we established a "Deal of the Day" section on our site. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. 
    We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. 

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on a very popular Vortex Riflescope which we have a few open box units at a reduced price available for you. These Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 LR Dead-Hold BDC Riflescopes, #VHS-4305-LR are in as new condition in their original boxes and have never been mounted. They are from a few demo day events where they were opened up and put into rubber grips on wood stocks and at the end of the day they were packed back up. This scope is normally $549.99 and we are knocking off $150.00 down to only $399.99 while we've got these open box units available.

     

    An evolutionary upgrade, Vortex Viper HS riflescopes offer hunters and shooters an array of features sure to be well received. A new optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range provides magnification versatility. The ultra-friendly eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily—because shooting opportunities can be measured in fractions of seconds. Built on a ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, the Viper HS delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment. 


    The Viper HS 
    4-16x44 LR (Long Range) model features an exposed tall elevation turret with Vortex’s CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) zero stop. Combine that with 75 MOA of elevation travel (24 MOA per revolution) and you get a riflescope perfect for dialing precision long-range shots. 


    Optical Features
    XD Lens Elements - Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
    XR Lens Coatings - Vortex proprietary XR fully multi-coated lens coatings increase light transmission for maximum brightness.
    Construction Features
    30 mm Tube - Provides greater strength and wider adjustment lattitude.
    One-Piece Tube - Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance as well as strength and waterproofness.
    Aircraft-Grade Aluminum - Construction from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum delivers increased strength and rigidity.
    Waterproof - O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable performance in all environments.
    Fogproof - Filled with argon gas to inhibit internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
    Shockproof - Lenses are locked in place, fore and aft, with machined locking rings to remain in perfect alignment and withstand recoil and impact.
    Hard Anodized Finish - Hard-coat anodization is durable; the low-glare matte helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
    ArmorTek - Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
    Convenience Features
    CRS Zero Stop - Customizable Rotational Stop (CRS) prevents dialing more than one rotation below your zero so you don't lose the zero when dialing large amounts of elevation corrections. Patent pending.
    Exposed Elevation Turret - Open type elevation turret with 1/2 MOA clicks and 24 MOA per turn allows rapid, accurate dialing of hold over corrections when desired.
    MAG-View - Combines a fiber optics magnification indicator with raised rear-facing magnification references for clear viewing in low light conditions. Patent 7,937,879
    Fast Focus Eyepiece - Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
    Side Parallax - Uses an adjustment mechanism on the left side of the 
    riflescope to fine-tune focus for the purpose of reducing parallax shooting error.

    The Benefit of Fast Glass

    Last updated 2 months ago

    A ‘fast lens’ or a lens that uses ‘fast glass’ is one that has a larger aperture opening so it is capable of capturing light at a faster shutter speed than a lens with a smaller aperture. The term ‘fast’ is sometimes debated as hobbyists might consider an f/2.8 lens to be fast whereas some professional photographers consider an f/1.4 lens to be fast. A lens made with what is considered ‘fast glass’ can be a real asset when shooting in low light conditions, especially if you wish to forgo flash.

    There is a budgetary consideration (read: it costs more) when purchasing fast glass, so evaluating how often you will be in the position to need this extra benefit is important. Many people who shoot in the field, in specialty situations such as evening wedding receptions, and in varied conditions find the investment to be well worth it because they capture countless moments they might otherwise miss. If such conditions impact your ability to earn money so that you can properly handle these situations, adding a fast lens to your kit might be the one tool that boosts your portfolio and client list.
