I have always championed full frame sensors. Mamiya 75Mm Shift Lens Manual' title='Mamiya 75Mm Shift Lens Manual' />At the end of the day, full frame sensors beat APS sized and smaller sensors. The whole reason I bought an original x. I could find in a small camera. Yes, its a crop sensor but I was only looking for a nice point and shoot that I could carry around with me when I didnt want to carry a DSLR. I wasnt looking for a work camera. It had been a number of years since I had shot an APS crop frame sensor. The last APS camera I shot professionally was the Nikon D2. I replaced that with a Nikon D3 full frame and then moved on to the Canon 5d. From the time I retired my D2. When I bought that little x. I had ZERO desire to change to a new camera system. I sure as hell was NOT going to switch from a full frame camera to an APS camera. Full frame cameras are better.

Right For proof of this check out this clip from my 2. Creative. Live classSo why am I back pedaling now I started shooting personal work with my little Fuji. Then I pulled it out on jobs from time to time because I loved that little camera. Then I used it more. Then I got the X Pro. Then I started seeing my Fuji images in print.

Then I started putting the Q A book together and I had the chance to run pages of test prints for the book. I printed every type of image I had from every camera I had owned. Studio shots. High ISO shots. Canon Raw Codec. Portraits. Street photos. I cropped into some images and enlarged them to full page. I received the test prints back and I taped them to the wall and took one step back. My Fuji images ran side by side with D3 and 5d. If anything, my Fuji images were just a tad sharper. My Phase. One medium format images were the only images that had a noticeable change in quality when I looked at everything side by side. You know what happened between my D2. Fuji x. 10. 0 Technology got better. And Im saying this across the board. Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus all the technology in our modern day cameras have increased ten fold or more. When I jumped to full frame sensors they were far better in terms of image quality than the crop sensors of that time. During the time I was saying, full frame sensors are the way to go, crop sensors were getting better and better and better. As did full frame. Everything has gotten better but Id argue that the difference in image quality from crop to full frame has narrowed significantly. However, through that time I still argued that 3. It is a small format. Its a tiny ass little itty bitty format when you compare it to the other formats of photography out today. I didnt think that full frame was better just based on size. Why are professionals all around the world working with 3. DSLRs and not medium format and up Simple price. The price of a medium format system is still stupid. It took me a long time to save up for mine and I still have a very limited medium format kit. I have one body and back and three prime lenses. I dont have a second body or back because I just cant put the money into it. If it fails on set then I go to my Fujis. Looking at the 1. I need from a working camera can be achieved using an APS camera. This XT1 blows my old D1. D2. 00 images out of the water. It stands side by side with anything I ever shot with my D3 and Id say its a hair sharper than my 5d. It doesnt match that of a medium format camera but what does Ive tested the Nikon D8. Would it best the XT1 By a bit it does. By enough that Im going to go all in on a Nikon D8. Because it has that tiny bit much more detailNo way. If Im going to drop money on a big expensive camera why piss around with a small 3. Look. Some of the trolls out there are going to think this is a Fuji sponsored message. It isnt. While Fuji is a client of mine and I have done work for them they sure as hell dont keep food on my table or a roof over my head on any sort of regular basis. I dont get shit for saying this stuff or making blog posts like this. Im simply relaying my experiences working with all sorts of cameras in all sorts of situations. And in preparation for making this blog post I have done a lot of pixel peeping at newer APS cameras from Nikon, Canon, Sony, and the rest and I feel confident saying APS sensors kick ass these days. Across the board. Whatever you are shooting. So that brings us to the physical size difference. Is that such a big dealThe thing that I would first consider is depth of field. The larger the sensor, the shallower the depth of field you get at a given aperture. Ive run a few tests for myself and I have yet to see a big difference in this regard from APS to full frame. When I jump to the Phase Thats when it shows up. Night and day difference on not just the amount of fall off with focus, but the way the focus falls off. I hate the term bokeh because 9. I hear people use that word they have no idea what in the hell they are talking about. Its become this catch phrase for out of focus or shallow depth of field. When people say, Wow. I love the bokeh in your pictures, thats a pretty good sign that they dont know what theyre talking about. Theres how much focus falls off then theres how it falls off. Four things effect the depth of field in your photographs. Aperture, focal length, camera to subject distance, and sensor size. Where things start to get confusing and is the topic of many a debate on forums is focal length of lenses and equivalent focal lengths in regard to crop sensors and all that. Lets look at three different sensor sizes and their equivalent lenses that would give the same field of view. Field of view is way different than depth of field. Here is a Nikon D3 with an 8. That is 1 1. The equivalent field of view lens on a 1. Fuji is the 5. 6mm. Then Ill add the micro 43s Panasonic GH4 to the mix with the PanasonicLeica 4. The Panasonic has a 2. D3. All of these images were shot from the same distance and all were shot at f 2. Here we have three shots that are basically the same frame shot with three different focal lengths and you can clearly see the difference in the depth of field. The D3 bokeh balls are softer and larger, thus more out of focus. The Fuji 5. 6mm is slightly more out of focus. The deepest, or largest depth of field comes from the smaller sensor sized GH4 camera. So at an 8. 5mm equivalent focal length, the full frame sensor camera has shallower depth of field. Yes The proof is in the puddingThere it is Full frame wins the bokeh ball challenge Aperture remained constant. Distance remained constant. The only other thing we have to look at is focal length and sensor size. Which one has the most effect on the changes in depth of field It is my contention and argument and hypothesis that focal length is causing the greatest change in what were seeing. We go from an 8. 5mm lens to a 5. The longer the lens the shallower the depth of field. The wider the lens, the deeper, or longer the depth of field. Focal length has a HUGE impact on depth of field. Look at the same 8. D3 and then on the Fuji APS crop sensor. Same lens. Same aperture. Same camera to subject distanceLook at those bokeh balls. Theyre pretty damn similar if you ask me. Heres where the fight will start. Are they equal focal lengths when you start putting them on different sized sensors Is the 8.
