Lots of today’s cameras feature a “35mm-sized sensor,” but what does this really mean? They all vary slightly in size, and some are shaped differently so that, when used for HD shooting, the usable size is dramatically reduced. Our clients frequently ask how to compare these different cameras and how sensor size affects field of view and lens coverage. A picture is worth 1,000 words, so we decided to produce a graphical chart to better compare them.

Tons of info on this chart and it is not a better/worse comparison and doesn't compare quality, recording media, resolution, etc. It is simply about sensor size and relative field of view. We made it as a poster and it's available as a free download from Abel in .pdf form. For complete information on the chart and a link to the download, please click on the link below.

You can also feel free to repost this wherever you like; all we ask is for proper credit for the work it took to create it.

Thanks for posting Mitch. Nice work.

I can see the wrong producer getting their hands on this: "Why are we paying for this Alexa rental when the 5D has so much more resolution?". ;)

Well I guess if someone is a donkey you can try training him all you want but in the end he's still a jackass. :)

The only time I wish there was a "like" button somewhere on the web, would be here to "like" that last remark ;)

Very sweet chart and quite handy.
