Canon Lens help ? (newbie)
« on: May 04, 2022, 05:21:42 PM »
Friend of mine kicked me down an old Canon EOS Rebel T3.. probably not the best camera but for free I thought id give it a try. I am curious if anyone has any lens recommendations for photos with this camera. I am rather new to shooting skate photos but trying to get off on the right foot. any info would be super helpful. thanks !

You can use any modern canon EF mount lens on it. What lens depends what kind of photography you want to do. A 50mm lens can be a good standard lens or a cheap second hand canon zoom lens might be more versatile. There's loads of canon stuff about so maybe check ebay or ask friends for something to borrow

I got hooked up with 28mm-80mm Standard lens, and what appears to be a 70mm-210mm zoom, or macro lens. stoked to get out and using them. thanks for giving some input!

28-80mm will be a good starting point as a multi purpose lens.

If you're doing skate photography you may eventually want something a bit wider like a 15mm approx.

Have fun!
