Re: Challenge: 50 MM shots only

Sorry to play devil's advocate on this one, but 50mm real-term lens, or 50mm equivalent? (roughly 35mm on a crop sensor camera or even less on a point and shoot)

the idea behind the challenge is to lock yourself into a FL. in this case, a 50mm. If you have a 50mm on a crop, you use it. if you have a 50mm on a FF, use it. If you have both, do what you want. it's not like there's any prize money.

is there?

Most of us with SLRs have crop sensors so our 50's are really 80 (on Canon) or 75 (on Nikon). Does that help?

If the EXIF data says 50mm? Does that make sense?

You say that: "Most of us with SLRs have crop sensors so our 50's are really 80 (on Canon) or 75 (on Nikon). Does that help?"

No it doesn't. 50mm lenses are 50mm lenses. All the crop factor does is change the field of view.

For this exercise to work, just set your focal length to 50mm (for zooms) on crop cameras; if you have a prime 50mm just use it on either full frame or crop cameras.

The only important thing is that your lens focal length is 50mm.

Ok, what he said That is sort of what I meant, just did not explain it well.
