What camera lenses are interchangeable?
Furthermore, what type of camera uses interchangeable lenses?
This is why they are sometimes called mirrorlessinterchangeable lens cameras (MILCs). ILCs have alens mount, just like a DSLR. The lenses are attachedand detached from the camera so you can use differentoptics on the same camera.
Similarly, what are interchangeable lenses? Interchangeable lenses are lenses that canbe mounted on a camera and swapped out for other lenses.Unlike fixed lenses, which are built into (mostly compact)cameras, interchangeable lenses provide the user with awider choice of image-capture capabilities.
Subsequently, question is, are camera lenses universal?
The two most common families of lens mounts forDSLR cameras are the Nikon F-mount (with two flavors, DX andFX depending on the camera's sensor size), and the Canon EFlens mount. From these third parties, often the samelens optics are available with both types of mount, but thetwo lenses are not interchangeable.
How do I know if a lens is compatible with my camera?
The easiest way tofind out which lenses your camera will accept is to lookat the indicators on lens mount on the frontof your camera. Simply remove the lens from yourcamera by pressing the lens release button and twistingthe lens anti-clockwise.
