超广角镜 (Ultra-wide Lens)






The fun of playing with a DSLR camera is the wide choices of lenses available for different effects and results.

After playing with the macro lens for sometime, where close-up details of photogenic bugs and flowers not usually noticeable with our naked eyes could be presented for our viewing pleasure, coupled with the nicely blurred background achieved with wide aperture setting and the short focal length, an ultra-wide angle lens provides a totally opposite and fresh perspective with its all clear and wide view of the scene in front of the photographer.

I love macro photography where I can spend the whole morning in my neighborhood garden capturing subjects ranging from bugs, plants, to dews and corroded nails etc., but a new ultra-wide angle lens makes me yearning to go out to places where I can capture landscape shots with a much wider angle of view. I guess I will end up travelling to more places with this lens.

I wish to share a few recent photographs taken with my Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens. The first two are the blue hour shots taken at Danga Bay, Johor Bahru, while the last two are the golden hour shots taken at a public park near my residence.

单反镜头 (DSLR Lenses)


Ever since I bought my first DSLR camera, in less than two years, I have added four lenses so far. I think one of the main advantages of DSLR camera is its ability to use different types of lenses for different photographic needs.

佳能 EF 100mm f/2.8L 微距镜头除了能拍微距,也能拍摄人像。

Canon EF 100mm f.2.8L macro lens is my favorite for macro photography, but is equally wonderful for portrait.

佳能 EF 50mm f/1.8 II 镜头是轻巧及经济实用的标准镜头,除了人像,也适合拍摄静物。

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II standard lens is a lightweight and cheap lens but yield superb image quality. I like to use it for portrait and still object photography.

佳能 EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5超广角变焦镜头能拍出视觉有异于标准镜头效果,相当有趣。

Canon EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5 ultra-wide lens is a crazy lens for landscape as well as to produce images with exaggerated perspective. Everything looks longer and wider with this lens.

Sigma 18-250mm 13.8倍变焦镜头让拥有者一镜走天涯,拍出来的品质也不赖。

Sigma 18-250mm lens has a generous zoom range of 13.8 times. This is a good general purpose walk-around lens.


As long as I can afford, I wish to add a super-telephoto lens in the future.
