About SLR Camera Standard Lenses

I will write in plain language.

In this case, we will refer to this lens.

If an SLR camera with a lens comes with a focal length of

50mm or 55mm, it is almost a standard lens.

The focal length is marked on the lens nameplate.

The standard lens will be a single focal length.

Single focal length is a type with a fixed focal length.

Focal length is
the distance from the film to the center of the lens, but a
50mm or 55mm lens would be a single focal length lens.

And when you look through the viewfinder, the angle of
view is almost the same as that of the naked eye.

Therefore, if you get close to the object (subject) you want
to photograph, you can take a close-up picture of it.

If you want to take a distant picture, you can shoot from a
distance to get a wide range (wide angle).

Lenses with a maximum aperture of 1.4, etc.

It is often found in standard lenses.

With a standard lens, you have to decide the distance
by yourself depending on what you want to
photograph (the subject).

We also sell other standard lenses.

We hope you’ll take an interest in standard lenses and enjoy

your film camera life!
