It isn't camera shake that makes them less forgiving, it is depth of field. At any given aperture, your DOF will be much shallower on a FF, so working at wide open apertures will make focusing a real challenge. I suppose one could make the argument that this translates in to camera shake since to maintain the same depth of field as an APS-c camera, you ...


What do you mean by "had the same 50 mm lens"? If you used the very same 50 mm lens on a full-frame and APS-C, the effective focal length would be different (50 mm on full-frame, 50x1.6 on APS-C), and higher focal length means more susceptibility to camera shake under the same shooting conditions..., If you had a full-frame camera with an 50 mm lens for ...


Rather the contrary. Pixel density Of course, as you say, sometimes there is an issue with the sensor - but not directly related with 'more megapixels', but related with the actual pixel density (ie. number of pixels/sensor area). I don't know exactly any more which is the situation right now but it seems that 24 MP APS-C sensors have the biggest pixel ...


It's not so much the full frame per se, as the fact that full-frame sensors have 36mp resolution these days, and that people tend to pixel-peep and judge things like sharpness, chromatic aberration, and motion blur at 100% crop (i.e., higher magnification if the resolution is higher). If, say, you're going from a 12mp camera to a 36mp camera, and you judge ...


You get a more shallow depth of field with a full frame camera so if you aren't careful with your forward/backward movements you can throw your subject out of focus. Or if you focus/recompose a lot you may have more problems with that. That's about all I can think of, though I've never heard someone say that a FF would be more forgiving.
