In the past I knew that the sensor on my crop camera was indeed much smaller than a full frame, but in my mind, all I had to do was back up a little more and it will give me the same view as the full frame...Yes, that is true, but there is just so much more than that.
Here is what I mean by the coverage of a sensor if you were standing in the same place. Indeed the field of view can be gained by backing up with a cropped sensor camera.
The truth be told though, despite all the technical jargon, my new camera just takes beautiful pictures and also allows me to shoot photos the exact way I envision them in my mind. I know now that the full frame is truly idea for portrait photography, which of course you can all tell that I love that the most.
My friend and I did a small presentation for our camera club and while we were doing it we shared some samples of the differences. Here are the ones I brought to the meeting. They were all shot with the same lens for the comparison, same settings, and same location.
Not only have I found that the background blur (bokeh) is different in all of the samples, but I have noticed that my work has significantly had less challenges with noise. That was always a running problem with my crop sensor camera (only for a pixel peepers like myself ). I am truly thankful for less of those challenges. This is a short and sweet note regarding this, but the truth is, I am happy with the change to full frame. It was a good decision and one that I will never regret!
