If you feel that despite shooting with your DSLR your pictures don’t come out as awesome as they should, then it’s time to try out 50mm 1.8 lens by Canon. Also referred to as the nifty fifty, 50 mm 1.8 is a “normal prime lens” produced by Canon. It is considered an excellent prime lens for portraits, action and even night time photography. A better option would be Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens as it comes with better features such as metal mount, faster-focusing speed, near-silent focusing and 7 blade aperture. However, the STM lens is more expensive. Here at Shopsy, you can check out features of Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens at different prices in Pakistan.

Main Features

The nifty refers to the very wide aperture such as f/1.8 and fifty is the focal length of the lens. A fast 50mm lens shares the same field of view as the human eye, hence delivering low amounts of aberrations or distortion. The Canon 50mm 1.8 lens comes in cheap because of a more plastic body rather than metal. Being the most versatile, the 50mm Lenses are super sharp as well as lightweight so you can easily travel light with them. Ideal for photojournalists, low light indoor shots, portraits and food photography, the 50mm 1.8 lens comes with great build quality. It possesses an awesome imaging sensor and ultra-wide aperture while being small and easy to handle. 

Low-Light Indoor Photography

Being compact, light and pretty convenient to carry around in your bag or on your camera, 50mm 1.8 lens lets you shoot at high shutter speeds even in low lighting conditions; an aspect, the Zoom lenses fail to cover. The maximum aperture set on the Canon 50mm is f/1.8, which means that it is a fast lens as it can let in more light and deliver brightly lit and fine detailed photos even in dim light. Well-exposed photos in low light require a lens with a wide aperture to let more light in and an aperture of f/1.8 actually allows in 4 times more light than lesser wide apertures. When a flash is not needed or desired, you can use the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens for shooting great low-light indoor photography such as a hardcore workout at the gym or a wedding photo-shoot at the church. Though Canon 50mm 1.8 has an awesome focal length for full-body portraits, it delivers a mediocre level bokeh.

Portraiture & Food Photography

The highlight of this lens is Portrait photography, where this lens outperforms because of its sharp results. With the 50mm 1.8 lens, you can improve your composition and can easily shoot across all lighting conditions. The high aperture and shallow depth of field make it a great option for portraits or food photography. If you are really looking to enhance your photographic capabilities or want to train your photographic eye, Canon 50mm 1.8 lens is your best bet for awesome portraiture as well as shooting amazing well lit night time photos even in badly lit situations.
