Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching a lens to your camera, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
one of the great advantages of an SLR of course is that you can change the…lens on the camera.…This affords you a tremendous amount of flexibility and power, because you…can select a focal length or focal length range that's ideally suited to your subject matter.…You can also attach specialized lenses such as fish eyes and tilt shift lenses and macros.…Attaching a lens is pretty simple.…Notice that my camera has a body cap on it.…This is because when there's no lens attached, I want this opening covered,…because just inside it is the mirror chamber and the image sensor and basically…the guts of the camera.…
If dust gets in there that can actually show up in my final images.…Similarly my lens has this big cap on the end.…This is the end that attaches to the camera.…Anytime I'm not using a lens I want to be sure that it's got its cap on it.…Because, the way that most dust gets to your sensor is actually through the lens.…So I want to be sure that this never gets dirty, because that's going to…transfer directly on to my image sensor.…
