Interchangeable camera lenses are one of the biggest benefits of today’s DSLRs. They let your photography adapt to a wide range of locations and lighting conditions simply by changing your lense, helping you get that picture worth a thousand words, in a hundred different ways.
For certain situations, the lens which suits you best might be:
Fixed Focal -Typically, these lenses reproduce a field of view that approximates what the human eye sees. Their angle of view is usually about 50°, with an equivalent focal length. You can shoot high quality images with excellent results if you don’t have any specific considerations. Wide-angle Lenses enable you to include more of the landscape or background in a photo, and also helps bring the subject in the foreground to a more prominent position. Interior and exterior scenes are both perfect candidates.
Telephoto - Exactly what it says on the tin, these lenses help you to make things that seem far away appear larger or closer. Commonly used in sports photography, telephoto lenses are the ideal choice for when you can’t get too close but still want to capture the action.
Macro - For detail shots, these macro lenses are designed for close-ups or producing images proportionally identical to their subject. Whether you’re photographing the craftsmanship of a piece of jewellery, or a newly opened flower, these will capture it all.
Zoom - You can achieve really interesting photographic compositions with a lens like this. Being able to adjust the focal length helps you to focus on the most important part of what you want to shoot.
Whether you’re choosing photographic lenses for personal or professional use, mycamera focuses on what’s really important. Once you’ve picked out your favourites, remember to buy extra caps, pouches, and other accessories to keep them safe.
