Comparing DOF between sensor sizes and aperture sizes
Nov 16, 2013

Suppose I'm comparing a large-sensor camera to a small-sensor camera, and I want to know which one will allow shallower DOF. If all else were equal that would be easy, but...

...suppose the small-sensor camera has a wider aperture than the large sensor camera. Is there a formula for working out which one will allow the shallower DOF?
