Definition of wide-angle in English:
(Of a lens) having a short focal length and hence a field covering a wide angle.
- A wide-angle lens or wide zoom setting will obviously help you work closer and get more people into the frame, but be careful not to take in too much distracting background.
- Lenses shorter than 50 mm are considered wide-angle lenses; those longer than normal are considered telephoto or long lenses.
- Unlike shooting with panoramic cameras, which rely on wide-angle lenses, this method works best with normal or mild telephoto lenses.
