4 Camera Lenses Under Rs.10,000 to Blur Background

lenses under 10000 to background blur effect

We all love to capture photos with amazing background blur effect using our DSLR camera, don’t we? If you think that in order to capture photos with shallow depth of field you need to buy expensive lenses, then you must read this post. I am sharing a list of four such camera lenses which cost less than Rs 10,000 and can be used to capture beautiful background blur effect.

1. Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 or Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 Lens

You must be wondering why I am recommending a zoom lens over a prime lens to get background blur effect. As we know, the depth of field depends on three factors out of which two factors are focal length and aperture value. Using the Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 G lens or the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens allows you to increase the focal length up to 300mm. This enables the camera to capture photos with shallow depth of field/more blur effect.

So even if you are shooting at a focal length between 200mm to 300mm, a combination of this focal length and f/5.6 can give you a good blur effect because of shallow depth of field. The best thing is that these lenses are available under Rs.10,000.

2. Nikon or Canon 50mm f/1.8 Lens

50mm f/1.8 lens is one of the most famous prime lens used to click photos with good blur effect. Two reasons why it is vastly used is its f/1.8 aperture value and the affordable pricing. Both the Canon EF50MM F/1.8 STM and Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lenses produce amazing bokeh effect and the 50mm focal length is just perfect for portraits.

These 50mmf/1.8 lenses are lightweight and easy to carry, making them the perfect prime lens to capture photos with shallow depth of field.

The Yongnuo EF YN 50mm F/1.8 lens is also a good alternative for Canon users and is available for almost half the price.

3. Nikon 35mm f/1.8 Lens

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens

The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is another great option for Nikon crop-sensor body users. One of the reasons why this lens is on the list is because of its focal length. The Nikon 35mm f/1.8 has a wider angle of view as compared to the 50mm f/1.8 lens, making it ideal for wider shots.

If you shoot group photos or events, want wider focal length in your photos and do not want to compromise on the shallowness depth of field, then go for this lens. This lens by Nikon is also priced under Rs.10,000, making it a budget prime lens.

4. Canon 24mm f/2.8 Lens

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM lens

The moment you see the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM you would wonder why is it so small in size. This pancake lens by Canon can easily fit in your jeans pocket and is lightweight too. Unlike Nikon, Canon does not have a budget 35mm lens for crop-sensor camera body users. But I feel 24mm f/2.8 is a great combination of focal length and the aperture value to capture photos with background blur effect.

24mm angle of view is neither telephoto nor too wide, it is a perfect focal length to capture wide shots with shallow depth of field.
