## What is a 800mm lens used for?

While the 800mm angle of view is very narrow for sports photography, there are sports applications for this focal length. This focal length will reach watersports such as surfing and will reach deep into large field sports such as baseball.

## What magnification is a 800mm lens?

0.14×

Canon EF 800mm lens

Technical data | |
---|---|

Focal length | 800 mm |

Aperture (max/min) | f/5.6 – f/32 |

Close focus distance | 19.7 ft / 6.0 m |

Max. magnification | 0.14× |

**How far can a 800mm lens zoom?**

Magnification varies directly with focal length, so an 800mm lens would give you twice the magnification and cover 1.7°x2. 6°, or 3×4. 5 feet at a distance of 100 feet.

### When would you use a 600mm lens?

600mm (and Above) Prime These lenses are ideal for professional sports and wildlife photographers who like to shoot subjects that are very far away with very wide apertures. The images these lenses can capture and the effects they create can be stunning!

### How many times zoom is 600mm?

How many times magnification is a 600mm lens? With a 600mm lens, you can get a magnification of 12x in your subjects. Trust me that’s simple mathematics. With a 50mm lens, you get the same field of view as an eye, so 600/50, you’ll get 12, and it’s the times you can zoom into the subject.

**How many times zoom is 400mm?**

So, for example, a 400mm lens on a full frame sensor camera has a binocular-equivalent magnification of 8X (400mm divided by 50mm).

#### Is telephoto a zoom lens?

Some amateur photographers use the term “telephoto lens” as a synonym for “zoom lens.” In truth, these two lenses are not identical. A telephoto lens has a long reach—traditionally this means a focal length of 60mm or more—but it does not necessarily need to slide through a range of focal lengths.
