A Guide to Choosing a DSLR Lens

Camera Store Long IslandIf you love taking photos with your digital SLR camera, you are eventually going to want to explore new and different DSLR lenses. When choosing a new lens, you want to consider many factors, such as what type of shots you want to take, how much money you have to spend, and what brand of DSLR camera you have.

What Brand is Your Camera?
Your new DSLR camera lens will have a unique lens mount that attaches to the digital camera body. Many camera manufacturers make lenses with mounts that only fit onto their camera brand. For instance, if you have a Nikon DSLR, you probably won’t be able to use a Canon lens. Luckily, you can use a third-party lens that is made to fit various DSLR brands.

What Type of Photos do You Want to Take?
DSLR lenses fall into categories based upon the lens’ focal length or focal range. Focal length is measured in millimeters. The higher the number is, the greater your zooming capability will be. An ultra-wide lens has a focal length of less than 24mm. These lenses can take in a very wide scene, and are great for landscape, architecture, and interior photography. A wide-angle lens has a focal range of 24mm to 35mm. They have a wide field of view and close focusing distance. A telephoto lens has a focal length that exceeds 70mm, and can even be as high as 135mm. These lenses are perfect for sports, wildlife, and landscape photography.

What is Your Budget?
You can pick up great deals on older models of DSLR lenses, though these older models may not fit your camera type. Your best bet is to shop sales, look for discounts, and even buy a used lens from a reputable camera shop.

If you’re looking for a great deal on a DSLR camera lens in Old Bethpage, visit us at Camera Land. We have top brands like Zeiss, Leica, Vortex, Minox, Swarovski, Nikon, and Pentax. Check out our online store, or call us today at (516) 217-1000 for more information about our products.
