    Canon 1300D is a good camera and you can capture good night shots when paired Samyang / Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle Lens.

    Things you need (despite of having lens and DSLR)

    Get away from the city – away from light pollution

    Get a tripod
    A remote shutter or cable release button


    Set you lens to max aperture – F1.4

    U can use Bulb mode to select the desired exposure time

    Experiment with Long Shutter Speeds

    Hi I’m Owning canon 1300d/ T6.

    Along with the body i bought 18-55mm lenses.

    i wish to upgrade my lenses, that provides me greater pics.

    Suggest me what r all the lenses do i want to buy.

  • admin


    The first lens you should get after 18-55mm lens is 50mm F1.8, the 50mm portrait lens is excellent for shooting portraits and and produces creamy bokeh.

    After 50mm lens I recommend you to get a Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS STM and then macro.

    You can also shuffle the recommendation as per you needs.

  • Kelly Day


    I’m looking at 50mm lenses for my 1300d and just wondered if the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 would work well on this camera? I love the crispness of the photos with this lens, more so than the 50mm f/1.8, but will I get the same on my camera? Also, does this work well for landscape photography?


  • admin

    @Kelly Day
    Yes you can get 50mm F1.4 Lens for you Canon 1300D and it will work with your camera without an issue.
    The advantage you get is one extra stop in Aperture range and hence you u get more DOF.

  • Merle Aberle

    Wife bought me a new Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D for Christmas. I know it’s an entry level DSLR and that’s exactly what I wanted as seeing I’m new to digital photography beyond my smartphone. Still trying to get a good working understanding on F-Stops, focal lengths, ISO and how they all mix together and effect exposure. Can be very confusing. That being said. Buying lenses and feeling comfortable I’m making the right decision and not throwing my money away is of prime importance. My question is this. If I wanted a lens that I would dedicate purely for video capture what would be the best option for indoor video capture. Also what would be the best option for outdoor video capture. Or can I do both indoor and outdoor with the same lens.


  • admin

    @Merle Aberle


    Congrats on getting your first DSLR

    For indoor video capture you need more light to the camera, other then kit lens I will recommend you to get 50mm F1.8 OR 24mm STM Lens (24mm if your need more wide coverage). Bright Aperture Lenses helps you in low light shooting.

    For Outdoor you can use your kit lens or 55-250mm IS lens.

    Now All in one Third Party solution – A Sigma Lens 17-70mm F2.8-4 Contemporary DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Canon is also a excellent choice for still as well as video. Sigma 17-70mm F2.8 Lens at Amazon

    @Dr kaushal
    We have added sample image of the EF-S 24mm lens in the article. The 24mm is a excellent lens to capture wide interior or exterior. The Max aperture is really helpful to get professional looking portrait in not time.

    I you already have 55-250mm and need more zoom then you can EF Canon 70-300mm zoom lens. The EF(Fullframe) lens will perfectly work with your camera. Due to crop factor the zoom lens focal length becomes 119-500mm

    I use Canon 1300D and want to take a full screen pic of moon using 55-250mm Canon lens.
    I observed that even after full zoom the camera captures the moon in only 1/20th of the screen.
    Can we not zoom any further using 1300D and 55-250mm lens.

    You need a more range if you want to get close-moon shots.
