A "cropped sensor" is a digital imaging sensor smaller than the traditional film size for the system in which it is used. APS-C is a cropped-sensor format compared to traditional 35mm-film or to "full frame" digital sensors. Cropped sensor may also refer to any smaller sensor, particularly when compared against the area of 35mm film.
