Step 1: Overview:
- about lenses
- what focal lengths mean
- about the different kinds of lenses and their relation to focal length
- how to narrow down your choices and buy the lens of your dreams!
Step 2: Lenses
Basically, it's either one lense or a series of lenses that'll focus the desired image onto a sensor (for digital cameras) or onto film.
When it comes to P&S and Advanced P&S cameras, the lenses are not removable. So if you buy one of these, you don't even have to worry about making the tough decision!

- Wide Angle
Each one is different from the other and will fit your lifestyle and artistic style better than others.
