Using Lenses:



We currently have three different types of lenses for use with the Canon cameras. 100mm Macro, 50mm, and 14mm wide-angle. Each lens works differently and produces an image with different characteristics. Each lens also has settings that will produce optimal quality images.

100mm Macro

Optimal F-stop setting

  • f/8.0


Optimal F-stop setting

  • f/5.6

14mm Wide-angle

Optimal F-stop setting

  • f/8.0

Examples of F-stop focus blur

  • The images below show the chromatic aberration effects of low aperture number f-stop settings on the quality of image focus.
