Introducing Digital Camera Lenses

The requirement for digital camera lenses changes with what type of camera you own. If you have the standard digital camera then you really do not need to have lenses.

The two primary kinds of focal length are telephoto and wide-angle. Telephoto lenses use a narrow field-of-view and are best suited for close-up shots and portraits, and wide-angle lenses have a wider field-of-view which is good for indoor images and landscapes.

Take into account that the capabilities of lenses can differ from camera to another, with the magnification power behind a lens generally being greater on a digital camera as compared to on a 35mm film-based camera.

Once you hear about fast and slow lenses, reference point has been made to a lens’s maximum aperture, which is the maximum amount of light that a lens can let in. A simple guideline is that a fast lens lets in a lot of light, while a slow lens lets in less light, which defines how your pictures will look.

Maximum apertures are calculated in f/stop numbers that are actually a proportion of the size of the lens aperture and focal length.

Not like a fixed-focal-length lens, a zoom lens often provides you with the diversity of a range of focal lengths all rolled right into a single flexible lens.

Add-on or perhaps accessory lenses are targeted in the direction of compact digital cameras, and permit owners of such models to significantly lengthen or reduce the camera’s built-in focal length while at a similar time having the ability to automate camera features including f/stop settings and focusing.

If the lens utilizes aspheric lens elements, then you can rest happily with the know-how that your lens will help produce sharper photos and help keep lens weight to a minimum.

Lenses using internal and automatic focusing also keep lens weight down thanks to less moving parts, and of course enable faster focusing.
