In difficult locations, photographers sometimes need an all-purpose zoom lens. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant takes you to the Vanuatu volcano and shows you the features of the flexible 28mm-300mm Tamron lens. On the volcano rim, Ian goes wide at 28mm to capture the lava exploding over the landscape and into the sky. He also goes tight at 300mm to capture only the sparking trails of burning lava.
