  • R.J. Ronquillo
    R.J. Ronquillo 1 year ago (edited) Excellent explanation and examples. I use a cheap 50mm lens because my "set" has some depth to it, with lighting in the background, so I like the blurring back there.

  • Nathan Hall - Gadgets & Greatness
    Nathan Hall - Gadgets & Greatness 1 year ago My tip is to start where you are with what you have, and be creative with it! I have two kit lenses with my Nikon and I just picked up a Nikkor/Nikon 50mm f/1.8 used for $60! So, I'm learning to maximize in the limitations until I can move up a notch or two, I am LOVING the 50mm though! That depth of field effect is intoxicating!

  • CheapGeek
    CheapGeek 1 year ago Just to throw out some important info to consider. If you are using a Canon Rebel series camera- you have to multiply 1.6 (crop factor) by the focal length to get the TRUE or actual focal length. Example: Canon EF 10 -18 mm X 1.6 (crop factor) actually = 16-32 mm or 18-55 mm X 1.6(crop factor) actually = 28.8 - 88 mm Thanks! Great video!
  • Think Media
    Think Media 1 year ago True. However, that doesn't apply to EF-S lenses correct? The 10-18 EF-S is a crop sensor lens ... vs... the Canon EF 17-40mm. The 17-40 on a crop camera would be multiplied by 1.6... but a native crop sensors lenses should be true to the focal length they promise. Unless I'm wrong...
  • Think Media
    Think Media 1 year ago Ok... I think I'm wrong... reading this http://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Lenses/Does-an-EF-S-lens-focal-length-have-the-1-6-crop-factor/td-p/145516 👊💯
  • CheapGeek
    CheapGeek 1 year ago Yep, the crop still applies. :) That's where the weird focal range numbers come from...
  • CheapGeek
    CheapGeek 1 year ago Same also applies to the EOS M series cameras as well. :)
  • Mike Zupancic
    Mike Zupancic 1 year ago EF-S lenses are still the same focal length and still need to multiply by the crop factor but the actual lens only needs to let light in to cover the smaller sensor. A crop lens put on full frame will actually have part of the image cut off because the sensor is so much larger. (If the lens even works as some will and some wont) crop cameras can use larger lenses meant for full frame as well.
