Product Description

Canon RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM Lens

The RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is a compact and versatile wide-angle 24mm prime lens, made possible by the intelligent design of Canon’s RF mount. A fast, bright, image stabilised lens, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM excels in low light scenarios with a f/1.8 maximum aperture and circular, 9-blade design. This also creates a beautifully soft background, that makes the subject stand out sharply in the image. When used with an APS-C sensor camera, this lens also gives an effective focal length similar to 35mm.

Weighing just 270g and featuring a gear type STM motor which enables fast and quiet focusing in a small form factor, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is perfect for travel and landscape photographers wanting to shoot on the go. With a minimum focusing distance of 14cm (0.5x magnification), this lens offers huge creative potential, enabling photographers and vloggers to focus extremely close to their subject, while still being able to capture the wider environment around it.

Sharp, Light, Wide
This small, light 24mm prime lens combines wide-angle with a fast aperture for shooting creatively, even in low light. And with a 5-stop optical image stabilizer plus quiet auto focus it’s great for smooth, high-quality video, too.

Wide-angle images with great clarity
This wide-angle 24mm prime is made possible thanks to the superiority of Canon’s RF mount. A compact, lightweight lens, it has an aspheric element and advanced coatings for high quality images.

Fast and bright, great in low light
The f/1.8 maximum aperture has a circular, 9-blade design that performs superbly in low light, giving beautiful out of focus areas and background blur.

Super smooth, super steady
A 5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer allows longer shutter speeds for hand-held shooting and slick video with more stabilisation (6.5-stops) on offer when used with an EOS R series body featuring an In Body Image Stabilizer.

Focus quickly and quietly for sharp shots and clear audio
The RF 24MM F1.8 MACRO IS STM’s quiet STM (Stepping Motor) locks onto your subject and focuses quickly, even when shooting fast-moving subjects.

Get close-up, and show the whole scene
A minimum focusing distance of 14cm (0.5x magnification or half life-size) is a real advantage for creative wide-angle and lets you get extra close, showing your subject within its environment.

Intuitive control at your fingertips
The RF 24MM F1.8 MACRO IS STM has a customisable Lens Control Ring that allows fine tuning of ISO, aperture or changing AF method as well as a dedicated focus ring for precise manual focusing.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
