DR FF vs. APS-C Part 2
1

I WISH TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING ISSUE.

Unfortunately out of space... so I hope it is OK to open Part 2.

Here is my current understanding from reading the previous thread:

My understanding now is (and I may be totally wrong), that the advantage of the larger sensor lies in it's higher resolution. So when downsampling full frame sensor output to APS-C size one averages pixels, therefore reduces noise, and hence better PDR but same EDR (since it is still the same sensor).

In contrast, simply cropping an image section out of the full frame sensor would not improve DR, cause no averaging occurs to reduce noise.

AM I ON THE RIGHT TRACK?
