Sweeping landscape vistas can be breathtakingly beautiful. However, they often lose something in the translation between what the eye can see and what's captured in-camera. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, human vision has a horizontal viewing angle of around 210°. By contrast, a 24-105mm standard zoom lens on a full-frame camera can only stretch to 74°. Secondly, your eyes naturally give you a 3D view of any landscape, whereas a photographic image is two-dimensional.
The good news is that, with the right choice of lens and correct photographic technique, you can easily compensate for both these issues. Even better, Canon offers a range of budget-friendly prime and zoom lenses that deliver excellent performance and image quality. Let's take a closer look, starting with how your camera affects your lens choice.
