  • What's going on guys! Do you ever find yourself with just a lens cap we'll try

  • this now you got yourself full lens it's called the lens clap fifty millimeter

  • this is six reasons why you need one

  • so this right here is the first lens I ever bought it's the canon 50 millimeter

  • F 1 point 8 it's tiny but it's incredibly powerful and it's gonna add a

  • ton to your camera bag and today I want to go over six reasons why you need a 50

  • millimeter for yourself the first reason that you need a 50

  • millimeter lens in your life is size the Canon 50 millimeter F 1 point 8 is tiny

  • I mean this thing is fantastic for travel it really is one of the smallest

  • lenses that I have it weighs only four point six ounces I did another review on

  • the Canon 28 millimeter a few weeks back that lens weighs over double the size of

  • this 50 millimeter the 28 millimeter weighs in at ten point eight ounces and

  • the Canon 24 to 105 L lens weighs five times as much at 23 points six ounces so

  • the 50 millimeter is really really small and it's super easy to carry around the

  • Nifty Fifty is one of the smallest lenses that you're gonna find making it

  • incredibly easy to add to your camera bag the second reason you need a 15

  • millimeter in your life bokeh this nifty 50 has seven aperture blades now

  • aperture blades are gonna give you different shapes in your bokeh in the

  • background of your shots cheaper lenses will have four to five aperture blades

  • that's gonna give you a more pentagonal looking bokeh the seven after blades

  • you're gonna start to get that really nice circle sure than if t-50 is small

  • but you're gonna have that beautiful circular bokeh in the background of your

  • portraits and the background of your videos and this is another reason why

  • you got to have that 50 millimeter the third reason you need a 50 millimeter

  • lens in your life shooting in low-light this nifty 50 opens 2f 1.8 which is

  • gonna allow a ton of light into your sensor and exposing your shot most kit

  • lenses are in a range of F three point five to five point six which is letting

  • in not even half the light that and lens at F one point eight is gonna allow to

  • hit your sensor so you can start to get some beautiful portraits and beautiful

  • video in dark places so this lens makes a huge difference in your low-light

  • shooting because the nifty 50 can open 2f 1.8

  • it's considered a fast lens which means you can really crank your shutter speed

  • to adjust for your exposure when you're open to F 1.8 again you're letting in

  • all of that light so you can have a very fast shutter you can take quick photos

  • you don't need a ton of time to expose your shots what this means is you can

  • stop motion this is great for sports this is great for action this is great

  • for any of those shots where you want to basically stop motion and get a crisp

  • photo without blurriness where the action of the photo is and it's gonna

  • allow you to have those high shutter shots when you're shooting video too

  • which gives you that quick sort of action-packed look that you'll see in

  • something like Saving Private Ryan or gladiator the fourth reason that you

  • need a 50 millimeter lens is depth of field opening up to F 1.8 is going to

  • give you that shallow depth of field for those cinematic looks that we all love

  • it's perfect for your portrait photos it's perfect for your video interview so

  • you can see right now that I've got myself in focus and the background is

  • nicely out of focus and this is shooting at about f-22 8 you can open that even

  • more def 1.8 with the nifty 50 and your background is gonna be even more out of

  • focus which really separates your subject from your background gives a

  • gorgeous look the fifth reason you need a 50 millimeter lens focal length 50

  • millimetres is right in the middle of the focal spectrum it's not wide it's

  • not telephoto it's smack-dab in the middle and it can do it all it's

  • considered normal it's considered the field of view that your eye sees when it

  • looks around so if we take three photos we have a 50 millimeter we have a

  • wide-angle lens and we have a telephoto lens you'll see that the subject is

  • closest to what your eye would normally see if you were walking around with the

  • 50 millimeter lens the telephoto does some different effects to it whereas

  • between millimeter does some different effects

  • they have their various distortions the 50 millimeter is smack dab in the middle

  • and it is that normal focal length the 50 millimeter is also

  • gonna force you to be creative and move around with your shot it's not to

  • telephoto it's not too long but it's not too wide either it's just what you need

  • so you can get your landscape photos you can also get your close-up shots it does

  • it all it's the perfect focal length here's a quick tip flip your 50

  • millimeter lens around in your camera to get some macro shots very very very very

  • fun little one here number six reason to get a 50 millimeter lens and this is

  • maybe the most enticing it's affordable the Canon 50 millimeter F one point

  • eight comes in at only a hundred and twenty-five dollars which is super

  • affordable four cameras are super affordable four lenses I should say it's

  • it's really a great starting point for a starter lens and honestly a lens that

  • you'll use throughout like I said before I've had this lens since the very

  • beginning it was the first lens that I purchased and I still use it today it's

  • one of my most used lenses it just can do everything that you could want now

  • there are a few tiers of fifty millimeter lenses if you want to go

  • higher you can get the Canon 50 millimeter F one point-four for about

  • $400 you can also get the Canon 50 millimeter F one point two L lens for

  • one thousand three hundred forty nine dollars which is way more expensive than

  • the F one point eight and that's gonna give you of course a higher quality of

  • glass it's gonna give you you know that extra stop of light and these are

  • critical differences but I'm telling you that F one point eight is really really

  • nice and it is certainly certainly worth the one hundred twenty-five dollars if

  • not more so an incredibly affordable lens that you could get today and start

  • making a huge difference in the way that your photos and your videos are looking

  • so overall I think a fifty millimeter lens is a critical part of any filmmaker

  • or photographers camera bag don't be fooled by its small size and relatively

  • cheap price it will become one of your most used lenses I guarantee it

  • so thanks everyone for watching I post videos every Wednesday
