Hello ColorOS SuperFans,
                                                    best-wide-angle-lens-canon-hero.jpg
Today I come with the latest topic about the wide-angle lens.
Let's get started!


A wide-angle lens is similar to the fisheye, just not as wide. The fall between 14mm and 35mm. Their angle of view typically runs from 64° to 84°. The 24mm lens also lands in this category.
These lenses also suffer from distortion. Their perspective is one of the largest and generally used for interiors and architecture.



What Is a Wide Angle Lens?

Looking at the information above a wide-angle lens covers a focal length from 4.5mm, at its most extreme, to 35mm at its least. Their angle of view reaches 64° to 180°, allowing you to see as much of the scene as possible.
Any lens that has a wider field of view than what the human eye sees is considered a wide-angle lens.
These lenses come with a substantial amount of distortion, both lens distortion, and perspective distortion. The lens distortion that falls into the wide-angle usage is barrel distortion.
This is more apparent in architectural images, where the lines bow outward, away from the center of the image.
This is due to the edges of the lens are further away from the lens plane than the sensor, where the wide field of view emphasizes the difference.
You can correct these during the editing stage, in a program such as Adobe Lightroom. I'll upload some lightroom mobile cc tutorial so you can edit in your smartphone.

When to Use A Wide Angle Lens.

A wide-angle lens is generally used for scenes where you want to capture as much as possible. Landscapes, cityscapes, and architecture are the main reasons why photographers use a wide-angle lens.

Why Not Use a Different Lens?

You could use a multitude of lenses to try to replicate the wide-angle of view from a wide-angle lens.
If you were to use a standard 50mm lens, for example, you would have to photograph many times and stitch them together. Six to eight images may be enough to cover the same angle of view.

Here, you would need time, energy, patience and an editing program such as Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom.
The only reason why you would own a wide-angle lens is that you are photographing wide spaces. A telephoto lens is great for those far away shots, but wouldn’t replicate the view the same as a wide-angle lens.
The perspective would be different, as wide-angle lenses and ultra-wide-angle lenses tend to distort the foreground and subject.
A telephoto lens tends to squash the background and subject closer together, giving a different perspective.

I hope you all like this article and it will help to make you choose between some different lenses. I'll come up with some more topics on the same, so guys stay tuned for more.

Thanks, guys for reading if you find this informative then do follow me for more...
