When it comes to digital camera sensors and the lens you put on your camera there are different scenarios that are possible and those different scenarios have different visual outcomes.
As a photographer you can use these outcomes as part of your composition.
Here’s what we have to work with:
- Digital sized sensor. (Less than 36mm x 24mm area)
- Full frame sensor. (36mm x 24mm area )
- Full frame lens. (Made to cover a 36mm x24mm area)
- Digital lens. (Made to cover less than a 36mm x24mm area)
Here’s what I know about the relationship between the sensors and the lenses and the visual outcome.
- If you put a full frame lens on a camera with a full frame sensor you’ve got a match.
- If you put a digital lens on a camera with a digital sensor you’ve got a match again.
- If you put a full frame lens on a camera with a digital sensor you’ll get a cropped field of view. Usually the cropping factor is around 1.5. ( ie. 28mm field of view X 1.5 = 42mm field of view
- If you put a digital lens on a full frame sensor you’ll get vignetting.
