What is 20mm on APS-C?

BTW, 20mm on APS-C is equivalent to 30mm on full frame. In reply to moving_comfort • Apr 2, 2010. taking into account the 1.5x crop factor. Wide lenses become less wide and long lenses get longer on APS-C.

What is a 20mm lens good for?

If you love to travel and take pictures of sweeping landscapes or cityscapes then the 10-20mm lens might be what you’re looking for. An ultra-wide-angle lens is also ideal for taking pictures of large groups of people since they allow you to stay fairly close to the group yet still get everybody into the shot.

What is 200mm on a crop sensor?

A 200mm lens on a small sensor with a 2.7x multiplication factor (Nikon’s CX cameras) produces an equivalent focal length of 540mm!

What is 24mm on crop sensor?

24mm is an interesting focal length for both full frame and APS-C (crop sensor) cameras. On a cropped sensor camera such as a Rebel XSi or EOS 50D, a 24mm lens gives you the same field of view as a 38.4mm lens would on a full frame camera. This is a useful “normal-wide” focal length.

How do you get a 50mm on a crop sensor?

For Nikon the conversion factor, or “crop factor” is 1.5. So 50mm divided by 1.5 equals 33.33mm. 35mm is the practical equivalent to this. For Canon crop sensor bodies the crop factor is 1.6 so the focal length to give the same angle of view would be 31.25mm.

What is 18mm on a crop sensor?

18mm x 1.6 = 28.8mm. Your 18mm lens will produce a field of view on your crop sensor camera similar to what a 28.8mm lens would on a full frame one. So if you’re looking for a very wide scene, then you might want to pick out a lens that is wider than 18mm to compensate for your crop.

Is a 20mm lens good for landscape?

If you barely do a tiny bit of astro-landscape photography, this might just mean adding a compact, affordable 20mm f/1.8 or 24mm f/1.8 prime to your bag. Or, if you do just as much astro-landscape work, or even MORE, then there’s a good chance you will want at least one f/2.8 zoom, and maybe an f/1.4 prime.

Is 20mm lens good for portraits?

For example, a 20mm wide-angle lens may not be the first or go-to choice of most portrait photographers for headshots because they can be less than flattering to the subject. This lens also allows you to create blurred backgrounds easier, and the results can be stunning when shot at wide apertures like f2. 8.

What is 24 mm lens used for?

For landscapes, a 24mm lens is an extremely popular choice for capturing those wide, epic scenes of city skylines or mountain ranges. 24mm allows you to play with your foreground and at the same time still get an epic view into the distance. So if mountain vistas or waterfalls are your things, 24mm could be for you.

What is the equivalent of 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.

Is 75mm good for portraits?

Wide apertures are key to portrait photography because they throw the background into a pleasing blur that helps draw the viewer’s attention to the in-focus subject. On an APS camera, the 50mm is the equivalent of a 75mm, which is an ideal focal length for portraits. Not bad for a small, lightweight lens.

What is the best wide angle lens for a crop sensor camera?

So when you want a wideangle lens for your APS-C crop sensor camera, you really want a lens with a field of view of 65 degrees or more. In this case that would correspond to a lens with a focal length of about 17.5mm (for EOS APS-C bodies).

What is the crop factor of a 50mm lens?

10mm The factor relating the 50mm focal length of the normal full frame lens and the 31.3mm of the equivalent normal APS-C lens is often called the “crop factor”, sometimes the “digital multiplier”. It’s 1.6x for Canon EOS DSLRs and 1.5x for Nikon, Pentax and Sony (who have very slightly larger APS-C sensors).

What is the crop factor of a 900mm lens?

For Canon EOS APS-C cameras the “crop factor” is 1.6x, so a you’d need an 960mm (600 x 1.6) on the full frame camera. For Nikon, Sony and Pentax DSLRs the crop factor is 1.5x, so you’d need a 900mm lens on the full frame camera for the same FOV.

Can I use a 20mm lens on a full frame camera?

Using a 20mm lens on a full frame camera will actually produce a much wider image (by a factor of 1.5), so instead I should look at a lens with 30mm instead to get the same exact result in the frame.
