Biowizard: Who says 36x24mm is the only valid definition of "Full Frame"? I thought real portraits were taken on 6x4.5cm at the very least, which is a much fuller "Full" Frame than poxy old 135.

And why, when a 50mm lens is attached to an APS-C sized sensor, do the muppets say it's "75mm equivalent", when they never call a 50mm lens on a Hasselblad 6x6cm camera, "25mm equivalent".

It's time to get over this endless drivel on "Full" Frame vs "the rest". EVERY camera is FULL FRAME for the format it employs.

Biowizard I get your point. I guess we tend to compare to the technology that existed when digital came on the scene. That's why Photoshop has dodging and burning too. Those terms don't hold any meaning for people who only ever shot digital.

KrampusClaus: yes i will complain about 'Full Frame' usage, it is a bit silly.
35mm is shorter to type, not quite as easy to speak but is MUCH more accurate-Full Frame.

Full is the real issue, Full what ?

if from the world of medium format, is that not 'Full' ?

just as sill as the 'optional' tires used in some car racing but you MUST use them - silly and very inaccurate !!!

but then that horse has to drink, problem is it is drinking poison water !

"Full" simply means it was designed around the full image circle of existing lenses made for 35mm film cameras. Sensors were very expensive in the beginning, so crop sensors were the norm. It was a big deal when full sized sensors (again based on existing lenses) became more affordable.

I never understood why people seem offended by the term 'Full Frame'? Full Frame doesn't mean absolute best. It simply means it was based on 35mm film and the full image circle of millions of lenses already in use. Hence, crop sensor refers to a crop from the center of such lenses.

For the vast majority, larger formats are really considered exotic or special purpose and are not part of normal photography discussions. I suspect that in the film days medium format held the same mystique for 35mm users that FF holds for many crop shooters today.

This is fantastic! Power and beauty all in one shot. The rocks provide context and anchor the shot well, and the colors are just wonderful.

Thanks! I am dying to get back out there. Until then, I live vicariously by looking at old images.

On another note, there were many great images in this challenge. They serve as a reminder that gear is only one component to good photography. Subject, composition, light and technique all play a significant role.
