The Reason For Full Frame

0 Comments
What's the difference between a cropped (APS-C or micro four thirds) DSLR sensor and a "full frame" 35mm sensor?

Every article I read online seems to miss the three most glaring points that differentiates the larger full frame sensor from their cropped counterparts.

Here are what I feel are the best arguments for a full frame sensor. It's not what you think. And it's unlikely what you have read on the internets.
