Photo Tip – What’s in a Lens?

I find that it is important to have a good quality lens for shooting real estate photography. The number of mega pixels is not as important when doing photos for the web (including virtual tours). More mega pixels are only important if you are going to be doing large photographic prints.

That said, I want show you what different lens do for a still shot. I am going to show you a sample of the same shot, from the same location in a room with three different lens.

This first shot is using a good quality point and shot camera at the widest setting:

This next shot is with a single lens reflex camera – with the standard lens that came with it at the widest setting. For those of you who like to know lens sizes this is a 14-45mm lens.

This next shot is with the same single lens reflex camera with a wide angle lens (but not too wide- it’s a 9-18mm). For me the numbers don’t really mean anything – I have to see it in action.

The wider angle lens is really great for those still shots for the mls and your flyers.
