Thread: How to tell from the specs that your camera is a FF or Crop?

    Under the camera's specifications, look at the senor size. Use 36mm divide by the length of your camera sensor and you will get the crop factor.

    Canon 1D is not full frame, only 1Ds is.

    Sound like $$$ seem to be no object to most people nowadays, hence to them getting the best in the market would "guarantee" a great shot...

    You will even come across the term "APS-C" which you can again input into google for a detailed explanation.

    You can also try "50d crop" in google and you will get this result

    Ah! Thanks for correcting me, bro! I guess my research wasn't complete enough either! The 1D is the latest model, but didn't think it would drop the full frame, bummer!! I guess enough research is never enough!

    No harm... If Canon 1D/1Ds was never on your shortlist, no harm came from you overlooking the fact that the 1D is an APS-H model, and the 1Ds is a full-frame one.
    Of course if you blurted out this information as advice, then too bad la, kena shot down!

    probably got to review your action of buying something that you are not even sure about...
    it's very easy to differentiate: Cheap= APS-C, Expensive=FF
    dun even need a spec sheet...

    There are many different kinds of people in the world. Just coz we hang around CS, doesn't mean that the majority of people are like us, poring over specs trying to compare which is the best bargain before we buy.

    Then again, the rich also fall into many categories; some became rich because they are frugal while others are rich therefore can afford not to be frugal. Rich is, of course, just a term that is more difficult to define, and means differently to different people

    1) how to charge the battery...
    2) change lenses
    3) look into the view finder...
    4) adjust the focus ring...
    5) press the "shoot" button...
    6) and MOST importantly... download the images to your PC...
    7) format your PC... ya?

    There are only a handful of Full Frame DSLR.. just do a google and you will have ocean of information.

    Loosely

    Canon has 1DS and 5D series as FF

    1D series as 1.3X cropped (7D ? not bothered)

    Rest all 1.6X cropped
    1Ds II | EF 16-35L| EF 24-105L | EF 35f/2.0 | EF 50f/1.8 | EF 85f/1.8 | EF 100L |EF 70-300L| EX 550
