Many photographers with crop sensor cameras dream of switching to full frame sensor. But is it really essential for raising your work to a next level? Photographer Manny Ortiz has created a real-world comparison of the photos taken with a full frame and a crop sensor camera. He shot with a full-frame, $5,000 Sony A9 paired with Sony 85mm 1.4 G Master lens. His crop sensor camera is $1,400 Sony A6500, paired with Zeiss 55mm F1.8. Can you tell the difference between the results?
Nikon D850 has been announced as the successor of Nikon D800 and D810. However, according to some reports, it may be the actually be the “baby version” of Nikon D5. In other words, as Nikon Rumors writes, the latest addition to Nikon family may actually be based on D5 rather than the D810.
We’ve already learned or speculated a lot about the new Canon 6D Mark II, and now it’s officially out. Canon has released their latest full-frame camera, which brings full-frame camera accessible to a wider number of users. It’s an improved version of its predecessor 6D, and it’s aimed at a wide range of shooters – from those looking for their first full-frame camera to more experienced full-frame users.
A camera with a crop (APS-C) sensor and the one with a full frame sensor give different results with the same lens. It can sound abstract in theory before you actually see the results. Photographer Ilko Alexandroff created a comparison between APS-C body and a full frame body, using 85mm and 135mm lenses on both. So, from this video, you can see exactly how these lenses perform on a crop and on a full frame body, and how the combination of the camera and the lens affects the photo. It’s interesting to see the changes, and if you are still relatively new to this topic, you will find this very useful.
Light pollution is one of the main problems of every astrophotographer, no doubt about that. If you want to get rid of its orange-yellowish tint, you need either post-processing or a filter. We have recently presented you with PureNight Premium, a filter you can attach to your camera and reduce the effects of light pollution. It’s mounted onto your lens by using a standard square filter holder.
But Cyclops Optics, a Hong Kong-based company has another solution. They produce filters that can be clipped on – but onto your camera’s sensor.
