Avantgarde shots under low-light conditions.
Despite its petite body, this lens features a fast maximum aperture at f/2.8. When more light gets in, photographers can enjoy higher flexibility in the creation of avant-garde, gimmicky shots even under low-light conditions. See how this lens makes a little twist on traditional astrophotography, adding extra fun to the starry night and nightscape shots.

Focus as close as 8cm
The 3.1″ (8cm) closest focus distance (object to the sensor) means that you can focus any object at a finger away. It enables photographers to get close to the subject and emphasize the details. The exaggerated angle of view will also provide alternatives to make fun of the amusing big-headed animals (including your friends). You may need to forget the rules of composition for one moment and take advantage of the extreme distortion to create an impactful image.

Huge depth of field
Simply stop down the aperture to f/5.6 (or above), you can concentrate on your compositions without worrying about focusing! The huge depth of field can cover almost everything in the scene.

Outstanding sharpness
The image sharpness of the 4mm is incredible! The lens is not just sharp at the centre, but also produces a clear image at the edge. This would be very useful when de-fishing the image or cropping out the centre part for an ultra-wide angle shot.

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.
