In this video I’m going to put to rest this question once and for all, does sensor size affect depth of field? I’ll be physically taking pictures with a full frame camera and a micro 4/3 camera and showing you the visual difference in a range of aperture settings. There are lots of theories and opinions on this but here is the definitive answer.
Should you switch from APS-C to full-frame? Or perhaps shoot large format? Does it matter? What will it change? Ah, so many questions. In this video, Jay P. Morgan and Kenneth Meryl have decided to test four sensor sizes side by side and give you the answers. They shot with a large format, a full-frame, an APS-C and a micro 4/3 camera. Here you can compare the images side-by-side and see for yourself how much of a difference there is.
Lenses are an integral part of photography or filmmaking. Well, unless you’re using a pinhole camera. But field of view, focal length, and crop factors can be confusing for newer photographers. This video from The Basic Filmmaker goes over the basics of what they all mean and how to convert “focal length equivalency” for non-full frame sensors.
Nikon & Canon crop cameras have been out for over 15 years now. But different sized frames isn’t new to digital. Even back in the film days, we had 110, 126, 35mm, half a dozen sizes for medium format, and a few for large format. It still always amazes me how much the concept of capture size still confuses some people.
This video from photographer & YouTuber Blake Evans (aka biscuitsalive) hopes to dispel some of those myths and clear up the confusion. It does goes very in-depth into all the ins and outs of sensor size, focal length & field of view, as well as aperture & depth of field. So it may have you asking more questions than it answers!
