Here in [Part 2] of the series article, we will take a closer look at the characteristics of the EF-M11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM wide-angle zoom lens, and also the beautiful colour reproduction of the EOS M. In this series article, Seiji Mizuno, a lecturer for the "Camera Biyori" Workshop will conduct a lesson on how to capture charming aquarium photos using the EOS M, the mirrorless model that provides reassuring support for shooting at dimly-lit locations, together with the EF-M11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, a wide-angle zoom lens that is known for producing fascinating wide-angle shots. (Written & Organized by: Camera Biyori Editorial Department)

Captures a Colourful World Vividly

The contrast between the green of the waterweed and the red and blue of the fish creates a strong impression.

Versatile Lens that Allows You to Enjoy Close-up Shots in Addition to Wide-angle Depictions

Taken at a wide-angle focal length of about 11mm. Only a wide-angle is capable of bringing out the expanse and depth from such a close distance to the tank.

Tips for Successful Aquarium Photos

Produces wide and dynamic shots

Taken at about 11mm

Taken at about 18mm

Here, you can tell the marked difference in the area captured when the wide-angle side of a wide-angle zoom lens (left: approx. 11mm) is compared with that of a standard zoom lens (right: approx. 18mm). With a wide-angle lens, you can easily capture a wide area without the need to worry about not having enough space to move back in a narrow area, such as a small room.

Yet another characteristic is its compactness and lightness that are comparable to the EF-M18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM standard zoom. With the update of the EOS M firmware, the camera has become even much easier to use than before with a faster AF speed. Combining the use of a new lens, there is no doubt your photographic experience will be further enhanced!
