Re: How does a lens work to form an image on the camera's sensor...

I am looking at the top image, I guess if you are not using a DX lens, the image projection would be the same, but a smaller sensor will record a smaller view compared to a fullframe sensor.

So the crop occurs inside the camera at the sensor not in the field of view the lens is facing.

Ask not what the camera can do for you, but what you can do with the camera.
