Coverage: DSLR vs Compact
Oct 27, 2012

I thought D90's (APS-C) coverage (field of view) will be more than SX130 (1/2.3"). But when I tried, both the cameras FOV was almost same at a given focal length.

18mm (27mm) in D90; 5mm (28mm) in SX130. Difference of 1mm (35mm equivalent) can't be the reason for this, right?

Shouldn't D90 suppose to give more FOV? If not, why? Can you guys explain? I may not understand fully, but I will try to understand...

Thank you...
