When you took the photo with a 300mm length, it got cropped on a crop sensor. You didn't actually get a 450mm photo, but still a 300mm cropped photo. With full frame, it will still take the same photo but without any cropping. If you crop it in photoshop then you will get the exact same photo as your crop camera... you are basically not missing out on any ...


To get the same reach as the long end of your 70-300mm lens on an APS-C body, you need a lens with a focal length of 450mm on the D750. To get any Nikon lens with that kind of focal length at f/5.6 or wider requires a substantial expenditure compared to what you paid for the 70-300. The Nikon 500mm f/4 sells for about $7,900 new. The 400mm f/2.8 runs a ...


To get the equivalent FoV ("reach") on full frame that a 70-300 has on 1.5 crop would require a (70-300)*1.5 = 105-450mm lens. This will probably be at least twice as expensive as a 70-300, and will definitely be larger and more difficult to handle. Make sure you're ok with the possibility of relearning technique or adding stabilization--and possibly ...


The main difference will come when you buy lenses for the 5D, which is a full frame camera, and that is really gonna cost you much more than D3200 lenses. Apart from this there are things like: no built in flash no mass storage device USB mode no GPS and many more features which you may be more accustomed to. So I would suggest not to go for 5D ...


That doesn't seem normal, no. Because the f/number relates to exposure at any given point (not total sensor size), the crop factor shouldn't matter. Since you had a one-stop lower ISO, one would expect the other camera to be correct at half the shutter speed, not several times longer. Were you both framing a roughly identical scene? Does the same thing ...


If you put the same lens at the same aperture on a full frame and APS-H camera, you will need to get closer to the subject with the full frame to have the subject the same size. As such, the depth of field in the resultant image will be shallower. If you take both shots from the spot the depth of field will be identical, but the subject will be smaller on ...
