Understanding Camera Lenses

DSLR Lens guide. This video teaches how to understand everything about camera lenses, which can be very difficult starting out. Topics covered include zoom lenses, prime lenses, wide angle, mid range, and telephoto lenses. As well as focal length, background compression, bokeh, UV filters, and all the rings, switches, buttons and what they do. Also going over all the letters and numbers and what they mean.
Also here are some links to things I referred to in the video

  1. Where is your lens buying guide video? Thanks

  2. Thanks for the videos man! Very useful

  3. I've spent some time in Japan and learned a word or two. One meaning of boke' (not bokeh like in OK) in Japanese is "unfocused". Another is a derogatory term for an idiot. An unfocused minded person. So If you ever get angry at a person, just call the fool a boke' and he or she will never no what hit 'em.

  4. You are the man, Thank you.

  5. dead in the bokeh part LMAO, nice vid!

  6. When are you going to post the video of which lense should I buy for the type of photography I want to do?

    great understanding- shows from his simple way of teaching

  8. Where is your lens buying guide video? Thanks

  9. Thanks so much for this video, really helped me a lot.

  10. great video!

  11. First impression – you spent a lot on the intro graphics but skiped on the sound (it sounds like it's recorded on a compact cassette!)
    Second impresssion – it's almost a whole 20 minute long monotone monologue!

    BUT – it contains a lot of very useful information and I'm glad I watched it. Just think I need an asprin now…

  12. I really liked this video. UV filters are great for better contrast. Yes I agree if you need one, get a good one. I like your choice in your link. I am more of an audiophile, but love playing around with Photography. Not an expert by any ideal. I just like Photography. Only one thing. You did put that lens back together again, didn't you?

    get a better mic

  14. I can clean my UV filter as often as I like and won't wear any protective coating on the lens:) It is good for dusty and in the bush [branches]. You can always take it off before a shot just like any other filter.

  15. Good information, but the constantly looping music in the background is so annoying I had to stop watching. The bouncing text is a pain too.

    Note to people making instructional videos… you don't need music constantly playing nor do you need fancy graphics. Just think content content content.

  16. Great video

  17. I am a beginner and your description and the way you explained things helps me a lot. Keep going..

  18. quick question. recently I asked the same question to Nikon but I'm not satisfied with the answer of their representative… If I use a DX lens on a DX camera, should I still multiply the focal length to the crop factor of 1.5?
