My version of blender has no lenses. Does anyone know why they might be missing? Here's a screenshot. Thanks.enter image description here


In your image you are in the scene context.

The Perspective, Orthographic, and Panoramic lens options are located in the Camera context.

Note that this is only available when the camera is selected.

Are you talking about the preset camera lenses and lens settings? Those are under the camera menu.

    $\begingroup$ @blendyblenderson You should probably be watching some basic UI tutorials about Blender first, before diving into more complex stuff. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jun 14 '17 at 0:29
