FF, APS-H, APS-C, etc advantages
Jun 11, 2012

One of the things I find interesting is the fascination people have for a full frame sensor. Personally, I really don't care what the sensor size is - it does not affect the vast majority of images I take - be it in the area of scenic, glamour/fashion, sports, wild life, or performing arts. I can always get a super fine 16x20 print from any format even if the pixel count is compromised - such as a 6mpix Nikon D100. My pixel count "boundary of choice" is about 12 mpix.

As far as I am concerned, the only difference among the format sizes is the nature of angle of view of a given lens and the degree of selective focus at wide apertures for a given lens. In other words, if I choose my lenses appropriately I can effectively duplicate these characteristics as needed (for at least 98% of the shots).

Why is everyone so FF - oriented ? ? ?
