I'm a technician, not a photographer.

comment Can a smaller sensor's “crop factor” be used to calculate the exact increase in depth of field?

Why are you so concerned about printing?

comment Is the angle of view actually different on APS-C?
OK, and it makes more sense that way. But the way it was written makes it sound like there is only 1 lens to suit both formats. EDIT: Incase anyone was interested, I didn't downvote.

When both APS-C and a full frame have a lens that caters for both having the same angle of view How does that happen??

Did you have the lens cap on?

comment What *exactly* is white balance?
It measures the colour temperature. It alters the red and blue channels, generally.

comment What *exactly* is white balance?
I mean I could tell the difference between a yellow light source and a red one But, can you tell the difference between a red object in daylight, to a red object indoors under a white LED light? No - your bran is correcting it. Yes - You are very picky. ;) A camera can, and it can change it, too.

comment Comparison of DOF between a 30mm f/1.4 and a 35mm f/2 lens
You totally threw me at your first sentence... I would like to buy a wide-aperture lens with an equivallent sta dard focal length for an APS-C DSLR (Canon EOS 500D, crop factor 1.6x). Equivalent to what? If you're using APS-C format, that becomes your standard, IMO.

comment Does the right calibration temperature for my monitor depend on season?
What type of lighting have you got in your room where this monitor is? If you have consistent lighting (halogen, LED, florescent... etc) and no windows/doorways where other light sources can get in, then no. You don't need to seasonally adjust your monitor. However, you might need to daily adjust your monitor at different times of day if you have day light or other light sources coming in at regular timing. Seems a bit futile, if you ask me.

comment So my iPhone 6 camera lens is as wide as my full frame 35mm DSLR lens?
Just out of interest, do you know the focal length of the iPhone 6 and do you know it's "equivalent" focal length?

Did you use the same aspect ration on both camera settings?

comment Why did my whole roll of film shot with my Olympus Infinity Zoom come out blank?
Was there a bit of film sticking out of the roll when you brought it in to get developed? The camera could be faulty, too.

And THAT is exactly what I meant by most likely be shades of black/grey/white. It's not that random. It was taken with my OM-D and a pinhole cap of the car park at my work. I also used a m4/3 to OM adaptor for a narrower field of view. I took this photo.
