Half v Full Frame by phil_sandford

Half v Full Frame

The 2 photographs were taken in exactly the same place, Hartsholme Park in Lincoln, with almost exactly the same settings on both cameras; manual Av, Tv and with the lens set at 70mm.

The top one was shot with the half frame Canon EOS 750D half frame DSLR.

The bottom one was shot with the full frame Canon EOS 5D full frame DSLR.

(I'm putting the colour difference down to the age of the 5D.)

They are both lovely! The bottom one just has more detail.

@ludwigsdiana Thank you. Bottom has more of what my eyes could see 😜😜

What file format are you using as I understand (I'm not technical) RAW captures more detail, hence the file sizes are bigger?
June 24th, 2017  
Grrrr - you're making me so jealous mate. What lens was you using? Both lovely. The bottom one for me too. It feels more like the path is really leading you into the frame. The difference in how much you see is so noticeable it's hard to believe both images were taken from the same spot 😊

5d will have more pixels and therefore detail. If you shoot in RAW you will get even more detail.

@johnsutton Shooting in jpg mode mate. Both in L, so file sizes are around 12Mb
Can shoot Raw on both cameras, but I don't

@paul10 I promise, both taken from exact same place. I didn't move my feet to swap cameras. 😜😜

750D fitted with Canon EFS 55-250mm lens. Pic taken with it set at 70mm

5D fitted with Canon EF 28-135mm lens. Pic taken with it set at 70mm

Quite staggering the difference in what is captured isn't it.

@rosiekind Thanks Rosie.

@padlock

5D (it's a Mk1) has 12.8 Mega pixels
750D has 24.2 Mega pixels.

I'm way way too anateur to shoot 'Raw' at the moment. Still learning (well, remembering) how to use an SLR in manual mode 😜

@paul10 mate, the lenses are bigger diameters also.

750D has a 58mm diameter lens
5D has a 72mm diameter lens.

Goodness - I liked them both, initially preferred the top one because of the depth of colour but now am starting to see what you mean by the tones and detail in the bottom one. Both good pictures though.
June 24th, 2017  
Interesting to see the differences...however small...do like the bottom one
June 24th, 2017  
There is definitely a difference. Prefer the bottom one.
June 24th, 2017  
This is all Greek to me but fun to follow along. At least I know that RAW is not shooting in the buff! LOL!

To make the comparison more equal, should you have zoomed the 5D shot in a bit to compensate for the crop sensor on the 750D. In other words so that you had the same field of view in both shots

@fbailey Thank you

@brennieb Cheers Brenda, thanks for the view and comment

@gardenfolk LOL Thanks for viewing :-D

@terryliv I guess if I wanted to demonstrate the clarity difference, then yes; what I wanted to do with this comparison was demonstrate what the two cameras 'capture' when on exact same settings, ie the fuller picture with the full frame.

Good comparison. It does seem townhouses closer on the top one and lose a lot of the trees that are shown in the bottom one. If you darkened the bottom one in Photoshop or something it would like the trombone, only more detail yes I think I like the bottom the best!
June 25th, 2017  
@henrir Think maybe your auto-correct went into overdrive their (trombone), but I know what you meant and thank you. 😜😜
June 25th, 2017  
Both good but I prefer the bottom one
June 25th, 2017  
To me, the townhouses on the bottom look better than the ones on top!

@chimfa Thank you

It all sounds a bit technical to me. I like the bottom one best because I just like it the best.

@susiemc There's no problem with that. πŸ˜‚
This project is 'ours' we like what we like and we post what we like.
