Nikon wide angle camera lenses
The wide angle lens is a popular accessory for most DSLR cameras. It has the widest focal length of 28mm. Nikon wide angle camera lenses are suitable for photographing large areas such as buildings, landmarks and group shots.
A wide-angle lens can enhance a photo's depth but it is important to select the lens that matches your camera's sensor size. Using a lens that has been designed for full frame cameras on APS-C sensors can sometimes alter the image quality so it is important the appropriate size lens has been used.
There are a wide range of Nikon wide-angle lenses to choose from. Certain styles have different aperture and shutter speed capabilities and varying zoom effect.
