a special compound camera lens with a long effective focal length but used in a camera with a short focal length, allowing large images to be obtained of distant objects when used in a camera in place of an ordinary lens; -- called also telephotographic lens.
A multi-component lens arranged so that the overall length of the compound system is less than or equal to the effective focal length.
A lens that magnifies an image and produces a narrowed angle of view. As the focal length increases, the magnification increases and the angle of view decreases.
lens with a longer than standard (50mm) focal length. Understanding Focal Length
a lens which provides a narrow angle of view of a scene
Is a type of lens used to view far away objects. It has a magnification ratio 1.
In order to make distant objects appear larger, cameras require a telephoto lens.
Telephoto is actually a technical term for a certain type of lens construction. However, most people today use the term to refer to lenses with 70mm or longer focal lengths. These are lenses bring the subject closer by magnifying the image on film. Shorter telephotos (70mm to 105mm) are ideal for portraiture, while longer telephotos (200mm and up) are favored by sports and wildlife photographers.
A lens used to view objects that are at a distance
A lens that, in effect, brings the subject closer. Useful in wildlife, portraiture, and sports photography.
A lens of long focal length that affects a scene's perspective by enlarging distant planes and making them seem close to the foreground planes. In 35mm filming, a lens of 75mm length or more. See also normal lens, wide-angle lens.
a camera lens that magnifies the image
a camera lens system integrating a telescope
a long multi-sectional lens for a camera that is carefully built for the best images
a necessity for wildlife photography
Pictures taken with a lens larger than 50 mm magnify the subject compared to human vision. Telephoto lenses are excellent for close-ups.
A lens that makes the subject appear closer that it actually is.
Lens giving a larger image than a lens of standard focal length at about the same distance from lens to film or plate.
Lens with a narrow field of view and long focal length that makes distant objects appear larger.
A lens consisting of a narrow field of view resulting in a long focal length. Telephoto lenses are used to magnify subjects within that field of view.
A lens of longer focal length which brings subjects closer so enables a shot to be taken from further away.
A specialised lens that makes a subject appear larger on film than a normal lens subject to distance. Features a longer focal length and a narrower field of view, resulting in the isolation (close up) of the subject without having to go near the subject.
A lens with a very narrow field of view (and, therefore, a long focal length). Telephoto lenses magnify objects in their field of view. Typically, lenses with focal lengths greater than 70 mm (equivalent to a 35mm film camera) are considered wide angle.
Extends the lens' focal width. All lenses with a focal width over 60 mm are known as telephoto lenses. Typical characteristics of a telephoto lens are a smaller viewing angle (from 35° depending on focal width), a smaller depth of focus, and a compression effect (objects far and close-up seem to be at the same distance).
A lens of fixed focal length designed to produce close views of distant objects.
A lens with an extremely long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer and thus larger. (A telephoto has greater power of magnification than a Long Lens.)
Lenses whose focal lengths are longer than 50mm (in 35mm photography). Telephoto lenses enlarge the subject size.
A camera lens system designed to give a large image of a distant object. In general, a compound lens system wherein the effective focal length of the lens system is greater than the overall length of the system.
Lens with a long focal length and greater magnification than the wide-angle lens.
A telephoto lens makes it possible to capture crisp shots of far-away subjects. The longer the camera's 35mm equivalent focal length, the more telephoto shooting ability the camera has (often digital camera users use optical zoom measurements to indicate a camera's telephoto ability). For example, a 38-300mm equivalent lens has more telephoto power than a wide-angle lens with a 28-140mm equivalent focal length.
A lens that makes a subject appear larger on film than does a normal lens at the same camera-to-subject distance. A telephoto lens has a longer focal length and narrower field of view than a normal lens.
A lens with a long focal length - longer than the diagonal of the film format used.
Lens whose focal length is significantly longer than the focal length of a normal lens.
See Long-focal-length lens.
A telephoto lens is a useful tool for making distant subjects appear bigger and therefore closer in your frame much like a telescope. Unlike zoom lenses telephotos have fixed focal lengths such as 100mm. A telephoto lens is very useful for portrait photography as it won't distort your subject's face.
In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is a specific construction of a long focal length photographic lens that places its optical centre outside of its physical construction, such that the entire lens assembly is between the optical centre and the focal plane. A regular lens of a focal length that is longer than what is considered a normal lens is not necessarily a telephoto lens. A telephoto lens has to incorporate a special lens group known as a telephoto group (see below); nevertheless, non-telephoto lenses of long focal length are often informally referred to as telephoto lenses.
