Two lenses are what most beginner photographers settle for. The first one is the 55 – 250mm and the other is the 55 – 300mm. The first one is produced by Canon and the second one is produced by Nikon. Both these lenses have an aperture range of f/4.5 – f/5.6.

How do I know which lens to use?

  2. Focal Length. The first thing to consider when choosing your new lens is the focal length.
  3. Fixed or Zoom.
  4. Crop Factor.
  5. Image Stabilization.
  6. Color Refractive Correction.
  7. Distortion.
  8. Perspective / Focus Shift.

What are the different lens sizes?

Focal length size guide

Focal Length Type of Lens What is it used for?
14mm – 35mm Wide angle Landscape, architecture
35mm – 85mm Standard Street, travel, portrait

WHAT IS lens Byjus?

A lens is a piece of transparent glass which concentrates or disperses light rays when passes through them by refraction. Due to the magnifying property, lenses are used in telescopes and other magnifying devices.

What is a spherical lens?

Spherical lenses—also sometimes referred to as singlets—are optical lenses that feature a spherical surface with a radius of curvature that is consistent across the entire lens. They are constructed such that the light entering them diverges or converges, depending on the lens design.

What does a 300mm lens do?

Focal lengths such as 300mm or 400mm would be a large, heavy telephoto lens for taking photos of birds or airplanes. Just remember – a small number is wide, a large number is telephoto. Two numbers together, e.g. 35-105mm, means that the lens zooms from one focal length to another.

What is the distance of a lens?

This distance is usually measured in millimetres such as 50mm, 200mm, etc. As the focal length increases so does the zoom of the lens. This is why wide angle lenses are referred to as short focal lengths, and telephoto lenses are referred to as “long focal lengths”.

Do Camera lenses have focus rings?

The configuration of the elements determine the focal range of the lens, and thus, the image producing capabilities of the lens itself. The end of the lens which attaches to the camera body is called the bayonet (or mount). The lens bayonet is made to fit specific types and brands of cameras.
