What does 1.5 crop factor mean?
A 50mm lens on a camera with a 1.5x crop factor APS-C sensor gives a field of view equivalent to that of a 75mm lens on a full-frame or 35mm film camera. Remember, the actual focal length of the lens is unchanged, as is its aperture.
What is APS C crop factor?
For Canon EOS APS-C cameras the “crop factor” is 1.6x, so a you’d need an 960mm (600 x 1.6) on the full frame camera. For Nikon, Sony and Pentax DSLRs the crop factor is 1.5x, so you’d need a 900mm lens on the full frame camera for the same FOV.
Is Super 35 better than full frame?
The full-frame format has a more shallow depth of field than the Super 35, which creates a nice bokeh. This gives the cinematographer more control over what and who they want to put focus on. The camera also allows the cinematographer to get closer to subjects without sacrificing the background.
What is a 1.6 crop?
It allows photographers with long-focal-length lenses to fill the frame more easily when the subject is far away. A 300 mm lens on a camera with a 1.6 crop factor delivers images with the same FOV that a 35 mm film format camera would require a 480 mm long focus lens to capture.
What is 18mm on a crop sensor?
Focal Length Equivalents The crop factor on APS-C crop sensor DSLRs from Pentax, Olympus, Sony, and Nikon is 1.5. The crop factor for most Canon DSLRs is 1.6x. That means that if you take an 18mm lens and put it on a Canon and Nikon, the Canon picture will be slightly more zoomed in.
What is a disadvantage of a full-frame sensor camera?
Disadvantages of full frame Size and weight: The overall size and weight of full-frame cameras is greater than their crop sensor counterparts. Full-frame lenses are also larger and heavier. This may not matter to many photographers, but if you frequently carry gear for long distances, it could be a factor to consider.
What is a 35mm on a crop sensor?
35mm = 52.5mm on a cropped sensor. 50mm = 75mm on a cropped sensor. 85mm = 127.5mm on a cropped sensor. 105mm = 157.5mm on a cropped sensor.
