Can I use full frame lens on crop sensor?

Can I use full frame lens on crop sensor?

Full frame lenses work just fine on crop sensor cameras because the image coverage is 35mm, which is more than enough to cover the crop camera’s approximate 24mm sensor. You get image cropping, sure, but you can still shoot great images!

What is 16mm on crop sensor?

Your 16mm lens mounted on a camera with a 1.6 crop factor will produce images with a field of view equivalent to a 25- to 26mm lens, which is a more narrow field of view than your 16mm lens can provide on a camera with a full-frame sensor (which is equal to a frame of 35mm film).

What is 17mm on a crop sensor?

Full frame sensors measure focal lengths in miles and crop sensors measure them in kilometres. To convert from miles to kilometres, divide by five and multiply by eight. 17 miles equals 27.2 kilometres, so a 17mm lens has an equivalent focal length of 27.2mm when used on a crop sensor.

What is 12mm on a crop sensor?

The Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 is an APS-C lens, meaning it was designed to provide a 35mm (full frame) equivalent focal length of 18mm. Although specifically designed for crop sensors, this lens can be used on full frame sensor and micro 4/3 cameras, but with a different effective focal length.

What happens if I use an APS-C lens on full frame?

If you put an APS-C lens on a full-frame body, it either won’t work, or will only take a photo using a very small portion of the sensor. This is because of the size of the imaging circle around the part of the lens that goes into the body.

Is crop sensor better than full frame?

“You can’t achieve the same low-light performance with a crop sensor that you can with full frame; full frame is so much sharper, clearer, and gives you less noise and more detail,” says photographer Felipe Silva. Astrophotography is one low-light scenario where the larger sensor really shines.

What is a 50mm lens 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. Remember, the actual focal length of the lens is unchanged, as is its aperture.

What is 10mm on crop sensor?

“Crop factor” is the ratio of the sensor size to 35mm / full frame. Take the provided crop factor number, multiply it with the focal length of the lens and you’ll get the equivalent focal length relative to 35mm film / full-frame. 10mm (focal length) x 1.6 (crop factor on Canon) = 16mm.

What is a 50mm lens on a crop-sensor?

Can you use APS-C lens on full frame?

Lenses. Different lenses are designed to be used with different sensor sizes. Full-frame lenses can go onto APS-C bodies, and be subject to the crop/multiplication factor. If you put an APS-C lens on a full-frame body, it either won’t work, or will only take a photo using a very small portion of the sensor.

Do professional photographers use APS-C cameras?

APS-C cameras used to be more for consumers who wanted to step up to something more substantial than a point and shoot. Now, APS-C cameras are excellent all-around performers that can be used by pros for many different genres of photography.

Can you put full frame lenses on a crop sensor camera?

Yes, you can put full frame (Nikon Fx) lenses onto crop sensor bodies. They will work, but the view you see is not the same – as we saw in the examples above. But, you can NOT put a lens made specifically for crop sensor (Nikon Dx) cameras onto a full frame body.

Can I use a 10-18mm lens instead of an 18-55mm?

If you are or have used the 18-55mm kit lens on your Canon APS-C body, there might have been situations when you wanted to go wider than 18mm. This is when having the Canon 10-18mm lens in your camera bag can help you click frames as wide as 10mm (P.S. do apply the crop factor ).

What is the difference between 18mm and 35mm focal length lenses?

So, you can see that an 18mm focal length lens on a full frame camera captures a lot wider field of view than does an 18mm lens on a crop sensor body. Once again using roughly a 35mm focal length produced very different images with the different cameras, as seen above.

What is a crop factor on a camera?

Crop sensor cameras or APS-C cameras have smaller sensors, and the resulting image magnification is called the crop factor – as you can see in action in the images above. It varies by manufacturer (Canon is 1.6x and Nikon is 1.5x), but we’ll use 1.5 as an example here.
