  • tkbslc: of course it's a constant. 1:1 means that the area in focus is the same size as your sensor.

  • Why are you saying that 1:1 requires being closer than 12 centimeters? And why bring format into the discussion? At 12 cm, you're going to get a field measuring 36x24 onto a full frame sensor, or...

  • Apple goes to new lengths in greed here.
    Normally, when you launch a new enterprise, you risk that it may fail and if it does, you're the only one to bear the brunt of it. But if you succeed,...

  • Hey, Soviet Russia was going for a society where money, poverty and crime would no longer exist. You can see the sad effects.

    CMOS sensors with active pixels further reduced that by half and then some because they needed extra space for the readout circuitry and for holding the charge in a non-sensitive area until it was...

    Duncan: This is called fill factor. And the answer to your question is: yes and no.
    Assume two sensors: one with area of S but fill factor of 50%, and another with area of ½S, but fill factor of...

    Richard, labels in the second chart are the same as in the first and it doesn't make sense. "APS-c crop" (second column in the second chart) should be: "D810 whole frame resized to APS-c size".

    Richard, a huge THANK YOU for the reply! That's something that appears to be impossible to hammer into people's brains when they think in terms of relative aperture (expressed as a fraction of...
