Re: The real advantage of Full Frame.

the bigest advantage of full frame is better high ISO performance. Personally I believe that with the improvement in electronics this advantage will slowly go away. Another advantage is that wide angle lenses are wider on full frame. this again is slowly going away as lens designs are also improving.

Actually I think that over time it is the future of full frame that is in danger of becoming obsolete not DX after all if electronics and optics get to the point where the difference is so small that 90% of the people can't take advantage of the differences I think most people will opt for smaller cameras just because of the convience

Just look at who few of us have opted to use medium format over 35mm - sure it is better, but not enough better to justify the size and cost. The same thing will someday happen to FX and eventually even DX

Just imagine a digital camera the size of a P&S that had image quality of a D3

Hi All,

I just wanted to ask you all why (nearly) everybody claims that the
Full Frame is the really way to go to get better pictures and pro
results andwhy it is much better than the DX format.

Why do you think that the same photographer can take better pictures
with a FF camera compared to a DX one?

What are the real and material advantage that a FF camera has over a DX?

What are the missing opportunity that you have using a DX vs a FF

Why should a picutures look much better if shot with a FF Camera?

Don't you think that the advantages of FF as of today are a bit

Wouldn't you agree that the same great pictures can be taken with
both formats?
