Best Canon 80D Wide Angle Lenses

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

What I like about this lens is its affordability. This lens is preferable equipped to capture sky, nature, building and some real estate shots. It comes with improved low-light performance and minimal distortion. I like this lens because of the sharp image captured and considerably light in weight. Capturing daily photography, travel, stills images and videos are really handy with the use of this lense. Some of the key specifications provided are:

  • APS-C Wide Angle Zoom Lens
  • 10-18mm focal length
  • f/4.5-f/29 Aperture Range

Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

Although the price for this lens is quite premium, it cannot compare to the satisfaction that it can deliver. This lens delivers premium quality images with low-light performance, maximum aperture, superb sharpness, and minimal distortion. Capturing the portrait image is preferable for this lens. The specs for this lens are:

  • APS-C Wide Angle to Standard Zoom Lens
  • 17-55mm Focal Length
  • f/2.8-f/22 Aperture Range

Canon EF50mm f/1.8 STM

This might be the cheapest lens for Canon 80D but it still delivers satisfactory results for me. This lightweight lens is sharp and perfect for shooting in portrait. It also performs well for action photography during the night. Although it is considered one of the cheapest lenses, it is still equipped with STM technology just like any other Canon 80D lenses. The aperture range lets you capture dynamic photos where you adjust the depth of your image. Specs for this lens are:

  • Full-Frame Prime Lens
  • 50mm Focal Length
  • f/1.8-f/22 Aperture Range

Those are 3 of my preferred choice for my photography sessions. Right now, I’m still trying to experiment on other lenses available but I think getting these 3 is already good enough. These Canon 80D wide-angle lenses let me capture the image on different favorable style and so far, these lenses haven’t let me down.

What’s ISO, beginner guide: A look at ISO settings

Learning picture-taking is a complex process and requires a lot of patience and practice.

What is ISO

ISO is referred to as one of the three pillars of photography that affect the look of your images. In the photographic world, ISO is most commonly referred to as a film rating system. It measures the sensitivity of the image or video sensor to light.

How to use ISO in Photography

 ISO is a camera setting that will brighten or darken a photo. As you increase your ISO number, your photos will get brighter. For that reason, ISO can help you capture images in darker environments, or be more flexible about your aperture and shutter settings.

ISO Settings and Grain


If the ISO setting is raised too high it will show a lot of grain, also known as noise, and might not be usable. So, you should only raise your ISO when you are unable to brighten the photo using shutter speed or aperture.

Maximizing image quality using ISO

You should only use base ISO when there is enough light to do so. Don’t try to use ISO 100 in a dark environment, or your photos will come out way too dark. Similarly, if you’re using fast shutter speed to capture the action, it’s essentially the same as taking pictures in a dark environment. For certain types of sports and action photography, a high ISO might be your only option.
