Full frame versus APS-C sensor camera

Full frame versus APS-C sensor camera posted by snap&scrap March 25, 2010 03:14AM reply | quote

I shoot with the Sony a100 and the a900. Does the focal range change from one to the other? For example if I shoot a 50mm on my full frame camera, I get a true 50mm DOF. If I shoot my a100 (APS-C) it is actually 75mm.

So are the LB lenses the same?

I have been using the a100 (pretty straight forward--just need to remember to change the settings when changing lenses so I don't get the mirror/sensor dirty) and just bought the a900. I haven't tried the lenses on it yet.

Yes, the same factor of magnification applies to LB that you get with "normal" lenses. One of the most obvious results will be seen with the fisheye lens, where you achieve a full circle with the full frame whereas with the APS-C you get a partial circle.
