All about lenses
Now here comes the interesting part which decides the lens. there are many types of lenses we can use with the DSLR, so read on to know more about the lenses.
- Zoom lenses – with these lenses you can zoom in on your subject (birds and animals) and click wonderful photos of them without frightening them off. You can have 55-200mm, 70-300mm etc.
- Standard lenses – standard lenses are those lenses which don’t go very far and are suitable for taking photos inside a room or hall. Standard lenses see what a human eye can see. For example, 18-55 mm is a standard lens.
- Prime lenses – this lens is the sharpest lens you can get, a 35mm and 50mm lenses are the best to start with, these lenses are fixed, it means you cannot zoom in or out, to frame a photo you have to use your feet. The lens is not suitable for indoor photography.
- Macro lenses – if you want to take close up photos then you can buy one of these lenses, Macro lens will take you closer to the subject but your subject should be 2 or 3 inches away from your camera.
Choosing a lens
if you want good photos and don’t want to spend too much money on lenses then buy any camera body I mentioned or you can go for cheaper ones too like Nikon D3300 or Canon 1300D and pair it with 18-55mm lens, the lens is good for indoor as well as outdoor photography.
Are you a bird or animal lover? don’t worry get a zoom lens up to 300mm which won’t cost you much. but remember the light condition should be good as at 300mm the aperture would be about 6 or higher.
for the sharpest photo go for a Prime lens a 35mm or a 50mm. a prime lens is cheaper now and gives outstanding result though you won’t be able to zoom in or out. But trust me once you put this lens on your camera, you won’t take it off because you won’t find this quality through any other lens.
