ages ago (VOXphoto - Apologies in advance if I have erred in my suggested edit to your conclusion.) peta-W edited this topic ages ago. also MJM67 your numbers from your calculator actually make sence this time last time the larger formats were gaining a deeper depth of field, now they make sense. it appear that lens designed for 6x6 has a bigger circle of conscription(?, not sure of the exact word) , which has to do with the covering film area . Moved to new domain, added English translation. Since focal length is preeminent factor in DoF, large formats have less DoF (because they use longer lenses). Both have a 28mm fixed focal length. 6X7 NF=8.65, FF=1.84, DOF=3.19 My point and shoot camera has a zoom lens that they have very kindly converted to 35mm speak as 28-112mm, which is about what it looks like on the screen at the back. Take a 4x5 with a 150mm lens ok. focus it on your subject take the shot. The only thing different is the FoV between the formats. internal purposes only. Simply coz in the context of compact digital cameras, the focal lengths are often "normalized to full frame 135 format" and not the actual physical focal length. ages ago I have encountering a problem with a "ghost" light leak. NOTE I am making many generalizations here. They're hopefully teaching you about optics, at least a little? Ability to change slider value by clicking on its track. GENERALLY SPEAKING, as format size increases, depth of field decreases. That is why larger formats will have larger DOF, they need less enlargement to make a final print, so they have out of focus points enlarged less, so it is less noticeable. 6x7 56x67mm . p.s. All shot at f8 focused at 10 feet. Introduction Images Technik Analysis Recommendations This all-content, junk-free website's biggest source of support is when you use any of these links to approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. For the full-frame Nikon and Pentax medium-format, that factor is about 1.4× (if you crop the wider 3:2 Nikon frame to get an equivalent image). Keep the subject distance the same so that the field of view is comparable. All images are unstretched and unframed. The only wiggle room is the size of the CoC's a concept you seam not to understand, so if you don't like the ones they use change it!!. ages ago but for some obscure reason, people say that a 50mm (f2.8) lens on a digital compact will gives MORE ) dof than a 50mm (f2.8) on a medium format 6x6. That's a roughly 3.6x increase from 135 to 120, right? Whereas, a crop-sensor (also called APS-C) has a crop factor of 1.5x (Nikon) or 1.6x (Canon). So you see now we have the opposite problem to previously, now people are getting far more DOF than they expect and our images are looking flat…. 90mm @ f8 on a DX, 35mm, 6X7, & 4X5 If the same image is taken with two different format cameras, say a 35mm camera and a medium format camera, at the same subject distance, the same f-stop, with the same focal length lens and the resulting images are printed to the same size, the medium format image will have greater apparent DOF. As the lens gets bigger the pinhole effect is reduced and the DoF gets smaller. Same physical focal length ( not the wishy washy "equivalent to 135 format" focal length often quoted in digicams ), say 50mm, and same aperture, say 5.6, then DoF for same subject distance has to be the same ... well, if we ignore the film and just talk about projecting to ground glass to eliminate the can of worms around Circle of Confusion etc. i really didn't mean to.. but we're just talking about optics here.. nothing more.. :) With those variable all equal the larger format will have a larger DOF. Glad my input helped =) (permalink) (permalink) It has do to with the degree of enlargement. I also struggled with this topic a while back... but this sums it up quite well you guy all are wrong. Any recommendations for Bronica S2 / S2A / EC telephoto lenses ? I expected the Hasselblad would win but I thought it wouldn’t be as far ahead in … While everyone is shooting the same 35mm film format that is fine, but then the camera companies started coming up with APS c sensors, micro 4/3 sensors and all the other tiny sensors in smaller point and shoot cameras and phones. I answered the OP--he never asked about FOV. Actually there is a correct answer, several of us know it and have been posting it, but there is one who thinks he knows the answer and is very annoying to those of us who do!!!! He ask same focal length, same aperture---which my first post gave the results for (the one causing the problems). The depth of field is defined as the area in front of and behind the subject that is in acceptable focus. What seems to be the difficult part for people to understand here is the field of view, and how the DOF relates to it… in short, it doesn’t relate at all. Cropped medium format sensors include sensors for Pentax and Fujifilm medium format cameras as well as the Hasselblad X1D. Let's not bring Circle of Confusion into consideration -- Let's imagine you shoot chrome and only has 1 magnifier to disregard the complexity of considering different enlargement factor due to film size difference. ages ago So Voxphoto it appears I know what I am talking about, and understand DOF just fine. This latter effect is known as field-of-view crop. ^__^ The above could be clearer if it read: This is an image shot on a 6×17 format camera with a 105mm lens. You will see who is right. (permalink). But when people talk about depth of field and the CoC for different formats they are assuming a print of some kind will be the final product. PS: i know i mentioned digital. > difference between 35mm and medium format in this regard. “Given the different format sizes between medium format and 35mm, we have different magnification, and this results in a difference of appearance of depth of field,” Taylor says. what he meant is if you keep the SAME FOCAL LENGHT, say 50mm for all format (it becomes wide angle on a 4x5, and tele on a digi compact) Take away the special sauce, no matter how confusing it is to you, and you're just not talking about Big Macs. Does anyone have any 220 Lab Box experie... Hi, I'm looking to extend the lense range of my |Bronica S2, so far I have the Z... Hello, I would apologize if this is a repeated question. In digital, many of 2019's "medium format" cameras use 44x33mm sensors ( cameras from Fuji, Hassy ,and Pentax), and deliver clean, crisp detailed shots, with ~50MP to 102 MP resolution. The hole on the 2x2cm camera has to be 2cm in diameter. 35mm film has a standardized frame size of 24mm x 36mm (864 sq. "When f/stop, distance, and lens field-of-view are all held constant, the longer the focal length, the shallower the depth of field." (permalink) Crap. brichoz edited this topic ages ago. This is a considerably bigger area so the sensor “sees” a much wider view of  the image the lens is projecting, which changes the perspective to a wider field of view. ), same apt (f4)(and obviously same focal length 28mm, this being, i assume the 35mm equivalent in respect to the sensor size) the sigma had a quite noticealble smaller DoF!And in the article, they were saying this had to do with the bigger sensor the sigma has. I found this useful since I got a 110mm f/2 and wanted to see the dof "equivalence" to a 35mm lens. It has a DOF calculator and a bunch of others. remember when you pinprick a tiny hole in a paper, and when you look through, you see everything is sharp? If I shoot with an 80mm lens on both my MF and 35mm cameras, I will have to be much closer to my subject with the MF camera to frame my picture the same way I will with my 35mm camera. (permalink), the point is , if you take a 150mm lens made for 4x5 , and a 150mm made for 35mm , chances are that you won't get the same DOF because of the circle of confusion standard. I think simply B3nji got confused about what was mentioned in that thread he linked to. The crop factor is always calculated by dividing the full format size by the size of the APS sensor. (permalink), @edscoble, okay what you were saying wasnt wrong, but you are not answering the question. Added 1m scale intervals in the DOF panel. 79mm diagonal. (permalink). As for medium format it works exactly the same, a 80mm at 2.8 on a hasselblad will give you the same depth of field as a 80mm at 2.8 on a Ae-1, Just the thing is it looks different because of the wider field of view on the hasselblad which lets you see more of the out of focus area. But in general the larger the film, the larger the CoC that is permissible. But please look it up for yourself. This is great. 0__o Which is direct response to the original question. Ken. So in the strict sense, you're wrong – CoC is always required. circle of confusion is real part of optics. MJM67 edited this topic ages ago. It gives a very wide field of view, and a 105mm is considered a wide angle lens on this format camera. and i do enlarge my prints lol, the old fashion way on an enlarger, easel, and silver gelatin fb paper, and hopefully soon will be platinum prints on archival cotton rag. (permalink). John Shaw's Nature Photography Field Guide, John Shaw, 2000 . Lenses designed for use on 35mm SLRs may be usable on bellows or extension tubes on a medium format camera, as at the greater distance from the film the projected image may be large enough to cover the frame fully. Yeah, I did, and here's what happened. It's a real shocker, isn't it. I did a blog post a while back which goes into some more detail. a greater circle of confusion is permissible (thus larger format --> deeper DOF) its just as the crop factor on dslrs just on a larger scale. ages ago Matthew - Enlargement is a factor in depth of field calculations, hence CoC. Do you just look at your slides (and negatives) through a loupe? "When f/stop, distance, and lens angle-of-view are all held constant, the larger the image format, the shallower the depth of field." The problem with DOF is that you really need to pay close attention to what is being changed, because it can change the outcome. We all understood that how wide a lens’s field of view is, is determined by the format of the camera its used on. Conclusion This is a real example, its actually what you would get if you stood in the same place with the two cameras and took the same shot on both with the 105mm lens… Or, you could simply take it on the 6×17 camera, develop the film, and take a pair of scissors and cut out a 24x36mm rectangle, and get exactly the same result.
