Lightweight travel Canon 40mm biscuit lens line photo Beijing in spring.

Why do many photographers choose micro-cameras now? It is because the weight and volume of SLR cameras are large, which affects the use experience, but many people love the mechanical feeling when using SLR cameras. Thus, Canon mini SLR EOS 200D and Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens were born. This mini suit combination completely solves the disadvantages of size and weight, and retains all the use feelings of SLR, which is very rare for users, especially female users.

How small is the Canon 40mm cookie lens?
Today we are going to introduce the protagonist of Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens (hereinafter referred to as 40mm biscuit lens). Since it is called a 40mm biscuit lens, it means that this lens is very light. This is also the lens with the smallest weight and volume among all EF lens groups in Canon, and it is even lighter than most micro-single lenses.
40mmThe biscuit lens is not even as thick as a 30ml perfume bottle.
In order to explain how small the 40mm biscuit lens is, we specially chose a 30ml perfume bottle to compare with it. As you can see from the above picture, the lens is not even as thick as the perfume bottle. Although the lens is thin and light, it doesn’t cut corners at all. Its appearance and workmanship are very exquisite, and it is also equipped with a large aperture design of F2.8, which can create a perfect blur effect and add a lot of color to the picture.

It’s spring in Beijing, and it’s very pleasant to walk in the streets. Under the aperture of F2.8, close-up of a few green leaves full of spring can just set off the atmosphere of spring. From the picture, we can see that the in-focus picture of the 40mm biscuit lens is very sharp, and the lines of the leaves and the thorns on the edges are clearly presented; The outside of the coke spreads like cream, which is very beautiful. It’s hard to imagine that this photo was taken by this mini combination camera.
Visiting Beijing Hutong with 40mm biscuits
Since it is spring, when everything is revived, this time is the best time to visit Beijing’s hutongs. Although Beijing is an international metropolis, its modernization and development speed are extremely amazing, but Beijing still retains the Millennium-old traditional hutong culture. Authentic hutongs can always see many interesting things, even if the city develops faster, these cultures will not be erased.
Canon 40mm biscuit is a large aperture fixed focus lens.

Walking in the hutong, I saw a shop on the street selling rabbit. The rabbit can be said to be a very authentic image of Beijing. Many foreign tourists and foreign tourists always bring one or two to Beijing as gifts. Now that we have met, we can just take pictures with Canon’s 40mm biscuit lens. Although this lens is thin and light, it is a fixed focus after all, and its picture quality is solid and excellent. Even if you shoot through the glass, you can clearly see all the details of the rabbit, and the color reduction is also in place.

Hutong culture is not only architecture, but also residents’ attitudes and habits. For Beijingers, the family likes to celebrate all the year round, so many residents like to buy some happy dolls to put at home. Taking pictures in the shop, the light is very complicated, but it does not affect the focusing speed and accuracy of Canon 40mm lens at all.

Bird-walking can be seen in many movies, TV series or documentaries shot in Beijing, which is also an important hutong culture. I happened to see a local resident walking a bird on the street, so I took a close-up photo of a bird with a Canon 40mm biscuit lens. To tell the truth, the sharpness of the lens is excellent, the details of the bird’s feathers, eyes, mouth and so on are very clear, and the cage and background can be perfectly blurred, making the whole photo look very emotional.
Large aperture fixed focus lens is very suitable for close-up scenery.
Since Canon’s 40mm cookie lens is a fixed-focus lens with a large aperture, fixing the focal length means that the framing is fixed, which can give users more creative space. 40mm is connected to a 200D SLR, and with the conversion factor, the actual focal length is 64 mm. This focal length reaches the category of medium telephoto, so it is more suitable for close-up shooting. With the large aperture of F2.8, the close-up picture can be more beautiful.
Canon 40mm biscuit lens is more suitable for close-up shooting.
Automatic/manual focusing lever of lens
Many photographers like manual focusing, not that autofocus is not accurate, but that they like the feeling of manual focusing. In some circumstances, the author will also choose to use manual focus when shooting close-ups, so that the focus can be smoothly switched at will. The only operating lever on Canon’s 40mm biscuit lens is used to switch auto/manual focus.

Close-up, generally for the comprehensive requirements of the lens. First of all, the focus of the lens should be solid and rapid, otherwise the focus of the close-up picture will be offset or it will be difficult to focus; Then there is the sharpness of the lens, otherwise the details will be lost; Then the blur effect and color reproduction of the lens should be accurate, otherwise the picture will be terrible. Fortunately, the comprehensive quality of Canon’s 40mm biscuit lens is very high, so it performs well in both close-up and imaging.
In the range of 1000-yuan lenses, there are actually few types of lenses that can be selected, most of which are domestic manual lenses, but there is really nothing to evaluate in terms of use experience. But now, within the scope of 1000 yuan, you can also buy EF 40mm f/2.8 STM in Canon EF lens series. The lens not only has high comprehensive quality and large aperture, but also has very small weight and volume. If you are a beginner in photography and want to improve your photography level, then you are destined to buy a Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens.
