Features of camera lenses
When you are choosing your lenses for the camera, it is very important that you take the time to make sure you are getting a lens that will work for the camera you have. They are not always cross compatible unless you have a universal lens. Also, if you have a DSLR, be sure you are getting a DSLR lens rather than one for a digital film camera such as an Epic Red.
You must also think about the types of shots that you need to take or record. Different lenses provide different results, naturally. For example, you would not want to use a macro lens when you are trying to achieve a panoramic shot.
As with cameras, you will find a wealth of high quality manufacturers that are making lenses today. Quality is very important with the lenses that you choose, so stick with a known manufacturer. Some of the popular options on the market include Canon, Schneider, Fujinon, and Zeiss.
How camera lenses work
When you choose a lens to rent or lease for the type of camera you have, it is generally very easy to swap out. Simply remove the old lens and replace it with the rental. Read your manufacturer’s instructions for the camera you have to understand how to remove the lens and add the new one safely.
Lenses can help photographers and filmmakers of all levels achieve the shots that they need for whatever type of project they are completing. Keep in mind that there are many different types of lenses out there, and they all have different purposes, strengths, and weaknesses. Whether you are photographing a wedding, making a feature film, or just want to use a different lens for a day out with the family, find the one that matches the type of shots you want to take.
