Why is it more FF more important for landscape than other kinds of photography?

Not sure I understand your question, but if you mean to ask why FF is a better choice for landscape photography, then it is simple; more dr, more detail, and easier to push the files around. If it all matters to you of course, or portability alone is not the first mark on your list.

Yes true, but why does that apply to landscape more than other types of photography?


Let me try to answer that. For landcapes you want as much DR and as little noise as possible. Two sensors, using the same technology and both at base ISO, will collect light proportional to the sensor area at the same exposure. In this case, that means extending the exposure time for the larger sensor. The result is more DR and/or less noise.

This limitation of the smaller sensor can for landscapes usually be overcome through bracketing and stacking, which is an automatic feature in modern cameras and software such as Lightroom.
