Thread: Is my lens suitable for this?

  1. #1

    Default Is my lens suitable for this?

    I've been tasked with a 2 day(2 x 8 hours) time-lapse shoot next week at a location I haven't visited, here is a picture sent to me of the room in question (file uploader isn't working for some reason). I'll be turning up to the shoot just in time to commence capturing.

    I have a Canon 7D and a Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens, do you think this is suitable for capturing a wide enough shot or do I need to look into hiring a wide-angle lens?

    Thanks

    surely if you can get everything in then it is wide enough !

    The room doesn't look very wide, although it is long. Depending on what it is you are photographing and where from etc. I think a 17-55 should be ok.

    Don't you have a similar space (doesn't need to be a room) where you can tast your setup?

    Unless the subject is physically standing behind the camera I think 17mm should be fine
