# Photography question

Maybe it will be a little bit hard for me to explain the question.
If I want that the area of the photo will be bigger, the edges of the photo will be further- for example, I point at an object from 1 meter, and I use 8-24 mm lens, and I see only half of that object, because I'm too close. If I had a camera with a bigger lens, with larger mm instead of the 8, like 10-28 mm (only for example), will I be able to see the whole object ?

No, 8mm is very wide as it is. A fish-eye specific is probably the only way to go. What is it that you're taking a picture of?

Just a car <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> but sometimes from very close, if there are things blocking the way. So a lens with larger number in the first *-* mm number will not result a wider photo ?

More expensive cameras with a bigger lens won't do better here ? 1000\$ cameras won't do wider than 300\$ cameras generally ?

8-24m is your range of zoom, first number is the minimum zoom, second is the maximum. The higher the numbers go, the further back you will have to be to get a wide angle, but you'll also have more zoom. With an 8mm you must be getting awfully close though. My shortest lens is an 18-55mm, and I don't have much trouble getting the whole car in in most cases.

the smaller the MM of the lens, the wider angle image it will take.

You are just the guy I waited to get answer from <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
