A lens that offers a wide angle of view, usually in the 35 to 24mm focal length range. Ultra-wide-angle lenses range from 20mm to 8mm. Wide-angle lenses also allow use of very deep zones of focus.
A lens whose focal length is shorter than the diagonal measurement of the film used.
lens with a greater field of view and a shorter focal length than a standard lens (50mm). Understanding Focal Length
A lens of short focal length that affects a scene's perspective by distorting straight lines near the edges of the frame and by exaggerating the distance between foreground and background planes. In 35mm filming, a wide-angle lens is 30mm or less. See also normal lens, telephoto lens.
a camera lens having a wider than normal angle of view (and usually a short focal length); produces an image that is foreshortened in the center and increasingly distorted in the periphery
a lens with a focal length shorter than normal
A lens that allows the user to include more subject area, therefore it has a shorter focal length and a wider field of view.
Any lens with a focal length shorter than normal, thus allowing a greater area to be photographed. A wide-angle lens alters perspective by making nearby objects seem relatively larger than those far away and by increasing the apparent distance between objects both laterally and in depth.
A lens of fixed focal length designed to capture a large field of view.
Lens with a short focal length, a wide-angle of view and less magnification than the telephoto lens.
A camera lens with a short focal length, such as 24mm or 28mm.
A lens with a short focal length and a larger field of view.
A lenticular lens sheet with a viewing angle between 40-55 degrees. Wide-angle lenses work best for "flip" and "animated" effects. back
A lens that has an angle of view greater than that of a standard lens and that is considered of short focal length. This kind of lens is usually employed to include more of a subject within the confines of the image frame.
Wide-angle capability involves a separate lens that allows you to get up close to large groups (see also focal length).
In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens is a lens whose focal length is shorter than the focal length of a normal lens. An X-ray picture (radiograph), taken by Wilhelm RÃ¶ntgen, of his wife's hand.

A lens that has a shorter focal length and a wider field of view (includes more subject area) than a normal lens
is a lens with wide covering power. It has a focal length which is less than the diagonal of the film format with which it is being used.
In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens is a lens whose focal length is substantially shorter than the focal length of a normal lens for the image size produced by the camera, whether this is dictated by the dimensions of the image frame at the film plane for film cameras (film format)The term "image frame" as used here means the the opening at the film plane through which the film is exposed. It is used hereafter instead of the term "film format" because it eliminates the potential ambiguity of whether reference is being made to the film size, e.g. 120 film, or to the dimensions of the image produced by the camera. For example, cameras using size 120 film may have image apertures of 4.5 cm x 6 cm, 6 cm x 6 cm or 6 cm x 7 cm. or dimensions of the photosensor for digital cameras.
