Wide angle is short focal length.
High Power is long focal length.
Close up is macro.

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If...


Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths.

But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. not wide angle) will produce a larger image of the object even though the camera has to further away to achieve focus. This also results in less distortion as extreme close-ups in wide angle produce extreme perspective distortion. It's why a wide angle close up of a face results in an exaggerated nose and mouth.

I am buying a Canon SD970 IS digital camera. What


I would recommend you to buy Canon PowerShot SX210IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 14x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD. Decidedly slim and sleekly refined, the PowerShot SX210 IS packs a feature set that reads like a wish list. The 14.1 Megapixel CCD joins a 14x 28mm Wide-Angle Zoom for imaging power to spare. Frame your shots in the bright 3.0-inch widescreen PureColor System LCD, with the Low Light mode for sharp images in dimly-lit situations. It also captures stunning HD movies with Dynamic mode for enhanced image stabilization when shooting movies using wide-angle settings. Capture smooth HD video (720p) with stereo sound for a truly natural, high-quality HD experience. The PowerShot SX210 IS not only goes wherever you do, but takes your photography and video to a whole new place, too. You can check out more detailed review for PowerShot SX210 IS http://hubpages.com/hub/Canon-PowerShot-SX210IS-Digital-Camera

I have a Tokina lens which says SD 35-200mm 1:4-5.6. The serial # is 8508870. What can you tell me about it, like what camera brand it fits?


Hello. The SD stands for Super Low Dispersion glass. It's a type of glass which is supposed to correct a lot of common light-transmission errors that naturally occur with optics used in this manner. All companies use "special" or "proprietary" methods of producing their respective high-quality lenses. The 35-200 tells you the focal length(how much zoom capability) you have. In other words, 35mm is considered a mild wide-angle lens while 200mm is approximately equal to a 10x pair of binoculars. Tokina makes lenses for a wide variety of cameras. There should also be a letter designation stamped on the rear of the lens mount. "O" for Olympus, "M" for Minolta, "N" for Nikon, "P" for Pentax, etc. Sometimes, there are 2 letters showing that the lens will fit cameras from 2 different companies.---Rick

Optical zoom


Hey needacamera,
The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Have you ever heard the expression "Good, Fast, Cheap ...pick any two" ? Well, it's that situation. The kit lens is cheap, and it has a good zoom range (including wide-angle) but it's not very high quality. The best lens for you is probably the 17-55 EF-S -but it is $1000. It is a great lens, and it's efficient and light sensitive, along with image stabilization. Without knowing your budget, I would also recommend the 28-135 EF IS, but it doesn't cover the wide angle range. That one is $400. There's also the 17-85mm, which also has Image Stabization. That one is about $500.

Wide angle adapter lens


The wide angle aspect of video lenses seems to have been overlooked (perhaps disregarded) by the camera makers. Most rave on about how many times optical and digital ZOOM they have, forgetting entirely that the wide angle end is just as valuable. A trip through the speccies of most new cameras reveal the widest setting to be around 40 degrees - the same as the unaided eye. For those familiar with 35mm stills terminology, about a 50mm equivalent. Yet there are soooooooo many things that can be done with a decent (or half decent) wide angle. It would be fantastic if they could give us (in 35mm terms) something like a 28 to 200 which was a standard purchase, or as Canon did ten years ago, a 35 to 300mm zoom. Until then, I guess we will just have to shop around for wide angle converters. I use a Sony (made by Carl Zeiss) one for my Sony DV handicam. It cost about $120 and is worth its weight in gold. I use this more than the "normal" lens, and get some stunning results. The mount thread is 39mm, and gives me a 28mm equivalent. When I was growing up with 35mm, I bought some fisheye converters, and they really were cheap and nasty.. proving that you gets what you pays for. The only caveat with a W/A converter is to be very careful of stray light and dust on the lens, as the depth of field will go from the lens surface to infinity in sunlight, and any dirt will 'flare'. Have a check of the various ads in the mag and manufacturer websites for the converters. Oh and treat them like they are made of eggshell, as the multi coating on the lenses is very delicate.

Is the wide converter attachable?


Wide converter can be attached by using the dedicated adaptor ring ZCA-300 and will provide equivalent to 26mm angle of view in 35mm film. The closest subject distance: Normal Recording mode: 70.5 cm (from CCD), 60 cm (from the front of wide converter) Macro mode : 20.5 cm (from CCD), 10 cm (from the front of wide converter) *1 Set the Lens acc. to Wide Converter. in the setup menu. (Optical zoom will be fixed at wide-angle end.) *2 Built-in flash can be used when attaching a filter, but shadowing may occur at the bottom of the image. In this case, use of program flash 5600HS(D), 3600HS(D), 2500(D) (sold separately) is recommended. *3 Filter with 52mm in diameter can be attached to the adapter ring.

Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness


That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens. The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.

Shaking Photography


Here you will find the tips for taking better photos with less camera shaking. Tips 1. Composing and holding the camera with less camera shaking. For clearer images, hold the camera firmly not to cause camera shaking. 1) For maximum stability, hold the camera firmly well over the grip and keep your right elbow lightly pressed against your body. 2) Support the lens or the camera body with your left hand from below. 3) Look into the optical viewfinder as if pressing your forehead to the camera. 4) Do not stand straight, but with one foot stepping forward for taking better balance of your body. 2. Change the composing and holding the camera according to the situation for securer photographing. (Particularly when you take photos using the LCD monitor.) 1) Lean against the wall. 2) Put the camera on a fixed object like a table. 3) Ensure the camera holding by pressing the elbow against the handrail. 4) Use the tripod. 3. Move the zoom control towards wide-angle if your camera has the zoom function. Moving the zoom control towards tele-angle, camera-shaking will easily happen. If your camera has the zoom function, we advise you to take photos by zooming towards wide-angle. 4. Higher shutter speed will produce better images. Slower shutter speed may produce more possible camera-shaking. If your camera has a choice of shutter speeds, we advise you to select higher shutter speed for less camera shaking.
