5 Lens Types That You Can Choose For Your Camera

The perfect picture demands not only a steady hand but also an efficient lens. After all, crisp and clear photos look best when a capable lens is there to support the perfect shot. A good thing about camera lenses is that you can purchase them as modular parts later when you feel like. In fact, you can find plenty of lenses that you can install in your digital camera. The problem is the choosing part. If you have little clue about the right camera lens, then this post will guide you to find the appropriate lens for your requirements.

  • Fixed Lens

Photographers also refer to it as a prime lens, which comprises a fixed length. The most common ones are 50mm and 35mm. As these do not have a zooming feature, you can use them without adjusting the focal length. Thus, they can provide the photographer with decent image quality on a budget. You should also note that you can consider a 35mm-sized lens normal, as it copies the human eye’s abilities. Moreover, such lenses are capable of clicking portrait images as they have a broader aperture that produces better quality images than other lenses.

  • Zoom Lens

This one has a feature of varying the focal length at will. You can adjust it to various focal measures for focusing on a far or near object. You can usually find these grouped with DSLR cameras. Also, these offer a varying range from 18mm to 200mm. As they can elongate, they are larger and bulkier in size than fixed lenses. Thus, they are more expensive as well. Another positive feature of these lenses is that they can do the work of multiple lenses single-handedly.

  • Telephoto Lens

This lens is considered to be the most expensive, bulkiest, and most extensive of the lenses in this list with exceptional magnifying capabilities. This lens will let you capture objects that are located miles away with superb clarity. Most professional wildlife photographers prefer telephoto lenses for shooting images in the wild. If you have interest in cameras and lenses, then you can check out Maxcnash.Com for more details.

  • Macro Lens

With the help of this lens, you can enjoy bright and focused objects that are very small. These lenses are ideal for clicking images of textures, complicated patterns, grass blades, insects, and other tiny subjects. You can find this feature in other lenses as well, but the actual abilities can only be justified using a macro lens. You can achieve sharpness at a much broader range with these than other lenses.

  • Wide-angle Lens

These lenses are capable of shooting wide-angled photos that are ideal for images more massive than what an eye can see. In fact, you will be able to add many objects in the image, which would otherwise have skipped out on the edges of a picture. Thus, these lenses have a broader viewing field for your preference.

As a photographer, you will have to see the right kind of lens for your use and then select the appropriate one. You can choose them by referring to the above lenses.

So You Want To Learn Shoot in Manual: The Exposure Triangle Part 2, The Basics of Shutter Speed

As an owner of a great DSLR camera I’m sure your goal is to take that thing out of auto and into manual mode so that you can have complete control over every photo you create.  Yesterday I brought you one step toward that goal when I introduced you to the exposure triangle and one corner of it known as aperture.  Today we will take a look at another component of the exposure triangle called shutter speed.

To read the rest of my post head on over to  Grace Tells Another Story where I am guest blogging yet again and teaching everyone how to get their DSLR into manual mode through an understanding of the three parts of the exposure triangle.  Today we are talking Shutter Speed!  See you there!


So You Want To Learn Shoot in Manual: The Exposure Triangle Part 1, The Basics of Aperture

When you buy a great camera it is with the intent of taking great photos right?  Why else spend the money? Now a days you could just simply use your camera phone for adequate everyday shots that document your memories.  The fact that you own a great camera tells me that you want better photos than what your phone can provide.  I’m here to do my best to teach you 3 fairly basic concepts that help you really put that camera  to the edge so that you can create amazing photographs.  The 3 concepts make up what is called the exposure triangle and they include Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.

But if you want to read the rest of my post you’ll have to hop on over to Grace Tells Another Story where I am guest blogging and teaching everyone how to get their DSLR into manual mode through an understanding of the three parts of the exposure triangle.  My first post is all about Aperture!  See you there!
