Super Wide

Leave a comment

As promised, here is a collection of shots taken with the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 super wide angle lens. This lens has been designed solely for use on dSLR bodies that use the APS-C size sensor and so the viewing angle is exactly what it says on the tin- 10-22mm! Before I bought this lens I had never used a super wide angle and it took a while for me to get used to the distortion such a wide lens produces, especially at the sides of the frame. I’ve managed to produce shots where people appear to have morphed into elves with nice, large, pointy ears!

Where the lens works best is for landscape shots, especially shots that have clouds in the sky. The result is a photo that feels expansive and has atmosphere- coupled with front to back sharpness (if set up correctly!). I’ve only posted a few shots here but feel free to view my set on flickr that contains many more shots taken with this lens.
