What would a 50mm be on a crop sensor?
A 50mm lens on a camera with a 1.5x crop factor APS-C sensor gives a field of view equivalent to that of a 75mm lens on a full-frame or 35mm film camera.
How do you get 50mm on APS-C?
Multiply the focal length printed on the lens by 1.5 to obtain the 35mm-equivalent focal length of a lens mounted on a camera with an APS-C sensor. For example, if you mount a 50mm lens on an APS-C sensor camera such as the ILCE-6000, you’ll get the same view as a 75mm lens on a full-frame camera (50mm x 1.5 = 75mm).
What is 50mm focal length best for?
50mm lenses are fast lenses with a fast maximum aperture. The most basic 50mm lenses are typically F1. 8 – a very wide aperture. This means they are great for low-light photography (e.g. low-light portraiture or indoor shooting) as they allow more light into the camera’s sensor.
What is the most common crop sensor size?
The two most common crop sensor sizes are APS-C and Micro Four Thirds, which have a 1.6x and 1.5x crop factor respectively.
Can you use a 50mm lens on a full-frame camera?
First, full frames have higher ISO and can handle that ISO better in terms of grain. Second, full frames produce better color and picture quality. This means if you put a 50mm lens on a full frame, its focal length is 50mm. However, on a crop sensor the actual focal length for a 50mm is 80mm (Canon) or 75mm (Nikon).
What is a 50% crop?
When we talk about a 50% crop, is it half of the width and half or the height of an image, eg. for a Nikon D800 full size image (7’360×4’912), 3’680×2’456 pixels or is it half of the SURFACE of that image (in which case it’s more difficult to figure out)?
Is 50mm good for APS-C?
50mm lenses are good for APS-C cameras. They give the same field of view as a 75mm lens on a full-frame camera. This doesn’t flatten the image too much and with wide apertures – wider than f2 – you should get pretty nice bokeh as well.
When would you use a 75mm lens?
85mm (and 75mm) 85mm is considered a classic focal length for portraits — you’re far enough away to get a bit of perspective compression, but close enough for it to feel intimate.
Is full-frame sharper than crop?
APS-C sensors: cropped images With an APS-C sensor, the angle of view is narrower. This creates the impression of being zoomed in more. Although the depth of field remains the same in both cases, the background is “sharper” than the same shot taken with a full frame sensor and the same aperture.
Is crop sensor good enough?
Although some people argue that a crop sensor has its downsides, it can actually prove to be a beneficial feature of your camera. For example, it can be very effective for telephoto photography due to the extra reach gained from the crop sensor multiplier.
