    Default What does it mean Macro Reproduction: 1:5?

    Anyone care to enlighten about this term?
    Macro Reproduction: 1:5.
    Does it mean the lens can take image 5 times bigger than its size or 5 times smaller?
    Thanks in advance.

    1:5 is 1/5 the actual size.
    1:1 is life size reproduction
    5:1 is 5x the actual size

    1:1 means the object can "occupy" its exact size on the sensor, eg. a 2cm length object can project itself at a maximum of 2cm length on sensor. So IF your sensor is 4cm width, with 4MP length size, you can get the object at 2MP length.
