What’s ‘Nifty Fifty’ means? It can be anything, but in this post Nifty Fifty mean is the Canon EF 50mm 1.8 Lens. Few days ago, I decided to looking for a new lens to help me take a good photos (maybe). This lens I bought from Bandung Electronic Center, and the price tag is Rp 930.000.
My mom laughed when she grab this lens with her hand, she said “It’s like a Toy!” . I know, the lens is light and looks like a piece of shit. But, behind that cheapo appearance, it has a potential. Large aperture (f/1.8) allow me to capture a picture in a low light situation and make me to easily blur the background if I want to make bokeh photos. The thing that makes me to buy this lens is, it’s fixed, it cannot zoom, that’s why I loved this lens so much, and this is a picture I taken with this lens.
Oh, I’m not an expert photographer, I just like to do it with my gear. So, if this picture are not good enought, I’m sorry. Just wanna show how crispy the picture taken with 50mm lens. Click to enlarge the picture and look at her eyes. Damn!
