Re: Tired of hearing this fallacy about fstop equivalence.

"So larger formats gain their noise advantage over smaller formats by using a more shallow DOF for a given shutter speed."


Did you just make that one up? You did, didn't you. Larger formats gain a noise advantage because they are larger. Period. End of story. There is a larger surface area that produces more information, be it film or digital. Sort of like a computer hard drive. A 1TB drive can hold more data than an 80GB drive.

It's pretty simple.

You'll get there... you're almost grasping these basic concepts.
