## Is a 300mm lens good for wildlife?

Most photographers have zoom telephoto lenses in their kit bag, generally of the 70-300mm type or equivalent. These are a great starting point for shooting wildlife, but if you want to get serious about the subject, their relatively short reach can quickly become limiting.

## How far can a 50mm lens shoot?

To get more mathematical, if you’re using a 50mm lens at f/1.8 and photographing something at 4 feet, your depth of field will be around 1.5 inches deep. But if you photograph that same subject from 10 feet, you will have a depth of field of just under 10 inches deep. Shot at 2ft with a 35mm lens at f/1.4.

## What does F 1.8 mean on a lens?

F/1.8: A larger aperture value (larger fraction) = a wider opening = more light coming in = shallower depth of field (much less in focus) and a faster relative shutter speed.

## How far can a 300mm lens zoom?

The Canon EF 28-300mm IS Lens has a zoom range of 10.7x. To get the binocular-like viewfinder magnification value of a lens, divide the focal length by 50.

## Is 400mm enough for bird photography?

Many species of birds are small and difficult to get close too, so is 400mm enough for bird photography? A lot of folks recommend 400mm as a minimum focal length for quality bird photography. But even at this range, you’ll still need the bird to be quite close to you for your subject to fill the entire image frame.

## How far does a 400mm lens reach?

Field of view with a 400mm lens on a 1.6 crop camera (Digital Rebel,XT or 20D) from 350 feet away would be 19.7 x 13.1 feet. Field of view from a full-frame camera (5D) would be 31.5 x 21 feet. if you have a 1.4x, you should be able to reach.

## What does 600mm lens mean?

On a full-frame DSLR, a 200mm lens will fill the frame with a view that’s about 10° wide; a 600mm lens captures a view that’s only around 3.4° wide. So, the 600mm lens makes a subject at the same distance seem larger than the 200mm lens does, and they’re of course both the same at the 55mm end of the zoom range.

## How far can an 800mm lens see?

## What is a 100 400mm lens good for?

100-400mm lenses are a good choice for wildlife, motorsport, airshows and more, where they bridge the gap between everyday 70-300mm telephotos, which are often a bit consumer orientated (and a bit short in focal length), and big, heavy super-telephotos.

## How far does a 500mm lens shoot?

Another way to think of this, starting again from 100mm lens and 10 yards, if you changed to a 500mm lens (5X the focal length) you would get the subject to appear the same size by moving back 5X the distance. So a 500mm lens would show the subject the same size at 50 yards (10 yards x 5).

## What is an 18 to 55 lens for?

While technically not a wide-angle lens, 18-55mm lenses allow you to shoot wide-angle by using the shortest focal length (18mm) and playing around with shooting angles and composition techniques.

## Is a 600mm lens worth it?

600mm (and Above) Prime These lenses are ideal for professional sports and wildlife photographers who like to shoot subjects that are very far away with very wide apertures. The images these lenses can capture and the effects they create can be stunning!

## How far away can a 300mm lens shoot?

For example, an APS type sensor at f/5.6 say at 300 mm with a focus distance set at 10 m will have a depth of field between approximately 9–11 m (so that is how far away you have to stand from the object).
