Sensor size and Aperture
Oct 12, 2012

Please, I'm trying to deepen my understanding of several concepts and would appreciate some help.

I did a search on "advantages of full frame" and did not find an answer to the following question, and any insight would be greatly appreciated.

As sensor size increases from APS-C to full frame, the light gathering sensitivity has increased.  All else being equal, is there a specific increase in the "speed", or number of f-stops available to the full frame camera (all else being equal)?  In other words, is a full frame sensor 1 stop, 2 stops, (etc.) faster than the APS-C sensor?

Thanks in advance!
