 Checkout:
 Students
must
be
on
the
list
of
approved
students,
receive
an
orientation
from
a
 professor,
and
review
guidelines
with
Frank.

 
 Reserve
lens
with
Frank
to
confirm
availability.
In
case
of
a
conflict,
Prof.
Van
 Kornegay
will
decide
which
student/assignment
has
priority.
Students
may
need
to
 share
(ie,
if
several
students
are
covering
a
sports
event,
they
may
need
to
take
 turns
using
the
lens
there.)
 
 Usage:

 This
lens
costs
more
than
some
automobiles,
and
YOU
paid
for
it
with
student
fees.

 When
you
check
it
out,
YOU
are
responsible
for
it.
Treat
it
like
your
own.
Use
 common
sense
and
take
reasonable
measures
to
prevent
its
loss,
theft
or
damage.

 
 It
is
intended
to
help
students
build
their
portfolios.
It
is
not
intended
to
be
a
free
 supplement
to
your
freelance
business
or
to
subsidize
another
university
 department.

If
you
consistently
need
a
long
lens
for
non‐Jschool
assignments,
you
 need
to
buy
or
rent
one.

 
 Handling:

 +
The
most
vulnerable
part
of
the
lens
is
the
front
glass
element.
Protect
it!
 +
It
has
a
tough
exterior.
But
try
not
to
scratch
or
dent
it.

 +
Always
KEEP
THE
LENS
HOOD
ON,
and
check
it
each
time
to
make
sure
it's
 securely
attached
to
the
lens.
 +
Attach
the
camera
to
the
lens
by
holding
the
lens
firmly
and
rotating
the
camera.

 +
Always
USE
THE
LENS
STRAP
to
support
the
lens,
and
always
check
to
make
sure
 the
lens
strap
is
securely
fastened.

 +
99%
of
the
time,
use
a
monopod
or
tripod,
attached
to
the
lens
collar.

 +
Unless
you’re
using
a
TRIPOD,
shoot
at
1/500
second
or
faster.
 +
Default
settings
on
the
lens
should
be
as
follows:

 





Set
to
full
range
2.5
to
infinity
 





Autofocus
=
AF
 





Stabilizer
=
0
 





Focus
Preset
=
0
 If
you
really
want
to
experiment
with
the
switches
on
the
lens,
read
the
manual
and
 practice
before
using
them
on
an
assignment.
