Five Reasons to Choose Full Frame Over Small Sensor Cameras
When it comes to choosing a system, opting for the sensor size that’s going to work best for you can be a bit of a conundrum. This short video looks at why one professional photographer thinks full frame is the best option when it comes to shooting stills.
With so many pros and cons to Micro Four-Thirds, APS-C, and full-frame, it’s good to know what advantages each will bring. Photography Manny Ortiz runs you through the reasons why full frame is the best option for his business. No doubt there’s a lot of other factors to consider, and Ortiz doesn’t mention price; not only will full frame bodies tend to be more expensive, but you will also need to factor in the increased cost — and size — of lenses.
That said, with so many third-party manufacturers making ever-improved and more affordable options, the comparative cost of shooting full frame is possibly not what it was. Being a big fan of Sigma, Tamron, and Samyang/Rokinon lenses, I see them as three manufacturers that have had a huge impact on the accessibility of shooting on Sony’s full frame cameras, and their lens line-ups are only going to become broader.
