How does the camera’s sensor size affect the lens angle?

0 minutes, 44 seconds Read

The camera’s sensor size can affect the lens angle and the overall field of view. The sensor size determines the amount of light that is captured by the camera, and larger sensors are capable of capturing more light, resulting in a larger field of view.

For example, a full-frame camera has a larger sensor than a crop-sensor camera, which means that the same lens on the full-frame camera will capture a wider field of view than on the crop-sensor camera. This is because the smaller sensor crops the edges of the image, resulting in a narrower field of view.

In general, a larger sensor size will allow for wider angles, while smaller sensors may require more specialized lenses to achieve the same field of view. It’s important to consider the sensor size when choosing a lens for your camera to ensure that you get the desired field of view.
