Lenses & Filters
You can get excellent photographs with a basic camera body and lens, but in some situations you might need a little help. Interchangeable lenses and filters are designed to give you that help if the conditions for a good photograph aren't present. You may find yourself in the nosebleed section of a soccer stadium and you can't tell which ants are wearing red and which ants are wearing black. In this instance, a zoom lens would be ideal to bring the action closer to you.
There are various types of lenses such as wide angle and telephoto to help you get assorted perspectives and views for your photos. Lenses are available in assorted styles such as manual, autofocus and focus free. They also come in various sizes.
Filters attach to the end of a lens and they are designed to protect your lens or give your image special effects or colors. They are also used to filter out things such as haze, sunshine and colors. Filters come in various colors, materials, mounts and sizes. You should always protect your lenses and filters by placing them in bags or something else protective. Lenses and filters are ideal for film and digital cameras.
