Serious question;

Why would anyone bother with digital crop sensor cameras when fool-frame is as accessible and as affordable as ever (hint: important words for you medium and large format dorks)?

Don't say "I can afford the lenses!". There are fool-frame bodies that natively support crop lenses and if not, then you can get a cheap extension tube to mount it on there anyway.
>>
>>2729425
Because full-frame cameras cost significantly more? What's so hard to understand about that?

I find it hard to believe that that is actually a serious question.
>>
>>2729432
>Because full-frame cameras cost significantly more
I hope you're not just pretending to be retarded. I think you missed the whole "fool-frame is as accessible and as affordable as ever" part.

You can get a Canon EOS 6D or Nikon D600 for less than $1,000 or if you want to go cheap, a Sony a7 for $700 or less.

And yes, this is a serious question.

I just printed a 20" x 30" photo of this taken with my X-T1 (CMOS II sensor) at 162 dpi

It came out beautifully with no hint of pixelation. Could maybe go another 5-10 inches

I accept my wonderful image quality if I must surrender a few centimeters of DOF to physics

OP is a fag

$500 difference in price isn't "significant," at least not to me. especially considering that if you can afford $1500/2000 on a luxury expense you can probably save up for another $500 and go straight to full frame. people are just uneducated and think that they're saving money when really it costs you in the long term having to switch formats. only like sports and birders prefer a crop body.

I did not. You stated a premise and I rejected it.
>>2729439
>$500 difference in price isn't "significant,"
When that more or less doubles the price, it is.

I personally think that full frame is worth the extra money, especially if you work in a lot of low light or high dynamic range situations, but not everybody has that extra money and it seems egocentric to claim that $500 is not a significant amount of money.
>>
>>2729475
I could easily pull out those shadows and it would look fine. I chose not to.

It also wasnt fully wide and the bokeh looks great to me. A full frame sensor would not make a sensible difference, you stupid bastard.
>>
>>2729478
No, you actually don't know that crop lenses are constructed differently than full frame lenses, otherwise you wouldn't have said
>If you had a full-frame sensor, you could have captured the entire scenes instead of cropping out all those important features.

Lel, what? The best APS-C lenses are barely sharp enough on a modern APS-C. You really don't want to stick them on a FF camera.

The humour of it is that while FF sensors are obviously objectively superior, anyone who actually argues about them like a faggot on the internet probably only gets iPhone-tier snapshits. Full frame is more expensive and it will be for a while.
In 10 years you're gonna come back and ask why anyone bothers with 35mm when there's medium format cameras, like the faggot that you are.

because the best cheap entry to ff is the a7 at $900, while you can buy a g1 for $90 or a k10d for $50 and use it for years.

as to why people spend $1300 on APS-C canikons is beyond me

>>2729435

Some people don't like to buy last generation's used cameras.

>>2729425
Size, weight, my needs, and price. I COULD afford an 8x10 camera and have "undeniably better" image quality, but I have no use for it whatsoever, and I'd rather have an X-T1 with a 35mm f/2 on it and not have to worry about it.

Why by a 90 foot ladder in stead of a 75 foot ladder when you only have to go up 75 feet? Is more always better? No. For me, smaller lenses are great. And buying a full frame camera to put crop lenses on it is retarded. Why would you do that? Just because you could win more arguments on /p/ about whose camera could take better photos if you ever left the house with it? No thank you.
>>
There is literally no consistent difference anymore between FF and recent crop sensors.
What has changed is that today you can buy still amazing FF cameras for cheap, really any FF sensor made in the last 6 years is great.

FF sensors can easily fit in a "fuji sized" camera, it's just a matter of economies of scale.
>>
>>2729685
>it's just a matter of economies of scale.

not sure you know what that means.
>>
>>2729687
It means that sensors are made from a single wafer, cut up many times to make the sensors. Problem is, all wafers have some small faults, bigger sensors possibly include more faults, and a single fault is enough to trash the sensor.

So, it's much more economical to make crop sensors from a wafer, you get more of them and less faulty ones, than the bigger full frame sensors. Which is probably why Fuji went for crop instead of FF: they didn't want to blow up the price so much, since crop delivers 90% of the quality. They went around the slight "lolbokeh" and ISO limitations by building excellent fast lenses, and it worked out.
>>
>>2729690
Thar's not what "economy of scale"
means.
>>
>>2729691
>1 wafer that makes 100 sensors
vs
>1 wafer that makes 60 sensors
>wafer cost is the same
>but it makes more crop sensors than ff

"economies of scale are the cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to size, output, or scale of operation"

Scaling up crop sensor production has much bigger returns from the same starting product than scaling up FF sensor production.
>>
>>2729425
use a shorter lens on crop sensor to get the same results as a longer lens on a full frame sensor

it literally doesn't matter
>>
>>2729692
imagine if they made a whole wafer into a sensor

I was an Osprey crewchief in the Marines from 2010-2015 (only flew from 2012 on but anyway)

I did photography and highschool and didnt buy another camera til the X-T1 a few months after it came out because I needed to fill a void my ex-gf provided.

So I started bringing my X-T1 on flights, and just went crazy. Whenever I got to take pictures like that, we were flying in formation and my ass was sitting on the open ramp of my Osprey as I took pictures of our dash 2 while sitting or laying in the prone.

It was a unique opportunity that pretty much no one gets to do. My job in the military was pretty sick compared to 98% of MOSs and when I started bringing my camera it got even more rewarding.

All these photos were taken on deployment this time last year. We were in Kuwait but flew into Iraq to do anti-ISIS stuffs every day or two.

While I was over there I got to go to Saudi Arabia once, Jordan twice, Iraq several times, and Bahrain once.

Everywhere was a shithole, except Jordan, which was a mysteriously pretty shithole that I'd *consider* going back as a tourist

not him, but it's quite known that lenses made for crop cameras have a smaller image circle.
they only cover what's necessary for the aps-c size, and that's not enough for a full-frame sensor.
unless you like vignetting in black circles, of course.

You gotta tell what you're smoking.

Don't assume that's the price if you see one listing on eBay or something for a used camera.

Anyway, why the fuck do you care what cameras people use?

Crops are cheaper, significantly, D3100 vs D600, if you think they're at the same price you need water and a psychologist, they're usually used as either learning cameras at institutions/uni or family cameras or poorer hobbyists.
>>
>>2730149
Composition shouldn't be that hard, just use a grid and follow the rule of thirds or the golden ratio
>>
>>2730153
They're designed to mathmatically project onto the smaller sensor. A crop lens only creates vignette if you can put it on a full frame body. On a crop body they look perfectly fine.

Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Shove a full frame lens onto a hasselblad and then allow me to shit in your mouth about how poorly your lens is made when it vignettes

>>2730565
Well yeah, but if you don't blur it all out, then you have to actually pay attention to it, or make it pleasant looking. Then I might have to actually put some effort into finding a pleasant scene, with a nice background... why would I put effort into my photos when I can just buy a faster lens and smear the whole frame around to impress my aunt Beatrice and 14 year old girls on tumblr? Also, it looks really professional to blur out the background. (ignore the fact that most pros don't do this, when I say "professional" I mean soccer moms and dentists)
>>
>>2729467
>all those important features
Like what? You're probably an uneducated gearfag who's literally incapable of taking a single good photograph and try to compensate your lack of skill. Pityful.
>>
Because cameras are just tools and sometimes the camera with an APS-H or APS-C sensor is the better tool.
>>
As someone wanting to get into photography and has literally just started his research, which side of the argument do most people take, and are prints taken with APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm) good/ large enough to consider selling, or are they for hobbyists strictly?
>>
My camera is mostly for leisure, so having a camera with quality normal, wide and tele primes fit in coat pockets or manpurse is good, and idgaf about 40mp and borkeh whoring.

>>2732837
You won't be able to tell the difference unless it's HUGE prints or extreme shallow dof.

>>2732837
sensor size doesn't reflect image size (megapixels)

>>2733828
>compressed pixels
a pixel is a pixel is a pixel, you can't make a pixel smaller. it's a singular point, it has no physical size.

a photosensor's size won't impact quality either.

it's just another stupid myth like "field compression".
