DSLR Lens Primer, Part 1


Welcome to Part 1 of a three-part series that lays out the basics of lenses for novices and those who could use a refresher. In this part of the Lens Primer, Larry Becker, of Kelby Media, explores concepts such as aperture, image stabilization (IS) or vibration reduction (VR), and zoom lenses versus primes.

Learn the different parts of the lens, what the rings do, and what the numbers on the lens barrel mean. The segment ends with a word about lens hoods and what they do, to wrap up this section. Come back soon for Parts 2 and 3.
