What Is A Full Frame Camera?

Photography Explained

Apr 1 2021 • 10 mins

Hi everybody. Welcome to Episode 51 of the Photography Explained podcast.

I’m your host Rick McEvoy and I explain one photographic thing per episode in plain English in less that 10 minutes without the irrelevant detail. I have well over 30 years of experience in photography so I do know what I am talking about!

In this episode - What Is A Full Frame Camera?

Here is my answer
A full frame camera has a sensor size which is 36mm x 24mm. This is exactly the same size as the film in a 35mm film camera. Typically SLR cameras used 35mm film, so when digital cameras were introduced the camera film was replaced with a sensor of the same dimensions. Full frame cameras used to only be DSLRs, but now you can get full frame mirrorless cameras.
