Product Description

Panasonic Lumix S Series 24mm F1.8 - L mount Lens

High quality standard focal length - Whether shooting stills or video the 24mm F1.8 offers an outstanding mix of high image quality and lightweight portability. The 24mm focal length makes it a perfect lens for wide-angle shots – and the F1.8 aperture gives you creative control over the depth of field and background blur effect.

Lightweight and compact design - Designed with the user in mind and weighing in at just 310g and 82mm in length this 24mm is a lens that can live on your S-series without being a burden to carry around all day. The wide manual focus ring can easily be identified and reduce the need to take your eye away from the viewfinder when shooting.

High quality construction - The 24mm contains a number of special lens elements (3 Aspherical, 3 ED) to ensure image quality across the frame. Details are rendered sharply while chromatic aberration, false colours, vignetting and drop-off in the corners are minimised.

4K video compatibility - The lens optical design minimises focus breathing, allows smooth exposure changes and reduces image shifting when zooming making this an ideal lens for shooting video as well as photography.

Circular aperture - Thanks to the 9 diaphragm blades and circular aperture means the background areas of your image will be nicely out of focus to make your main subject stand out, giving you the pleasing rounded bokeh shapes in the background.

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.
