Here’s Why Every Photographer Needs to Own a Nifty Fifty (50mm) Lens: Two-Minute Tip

Our video from last year on “7 Reasons Why a 50mm Lens Is All You Need for Great Photography,” proved to be an all-time favorite. That clip, which featured Shutterbug photographer Jordan Matter explaining what he loves about his “Nifty Fifty” lens, has racked up over one million views on YouTube and counting.

But if that video didn’t convince you to rush out and buy a fast, 50mm prime lens, maybe the one below from David Bergman of Adorama will. Titled “Nifty Fifty: Two Minutes Tips with David Bergman,” he explains why every photographer should have a nifty fifty in their camera bag.

So, watch the 2-minute video tip and go get your hands on a 50mm lens with a fast aperture right away. You should also watch more of Bergman’s videos on Adorama’s YouTube channel.
