On the rare 1.3x APS-H Canon cameras, that’s f/4 and f/5.2, a little less than one stop of difference. A given What photographer hasn't thought about getting into medium format photography? Just do (f-number) x (crop factor). focal length, halve it, and add a bit The formula for equivalent focal length is easy: (focal length) x (crop factor). APS-H (27.90mm x 18.60mm) (1.29x crop) Medium Format. But when you get down to the essence of equivalence, that’s all superfluous. Having done all the hard work, I The image sensor format of a digital camera determines the angle of view of a particular lens when used with a particular sensor. Am I missing something obvious? The issue is that in real-world use, there isn’t a clear cut winner when it comes to image quality between medium format and full-frame. To go to the lens test section, click here. Hopefully, it’s no surprise to hear that Canon’s APS-H cameras performed about one stop worse at high ISOs versus the company’s same-generation full-frame cameras. rectangle, you will of course be reducing the angle Hopefully, a math-based understanding of equivalence, especially the main takeaways, will help you avoid that fate – or, if it’s doomed to happen either way, at least dominate the discussion boards and prove to everyone that you’re the Best Photographer™. section. What were you thinking? The Fujinon GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR is the only zoom lens so far for Fujifilm’s medium format G Mount and cameras with the 43.8 x 32.9 mm sensor with which it covers a focal length range equivalent to 25-51mm. Who would have guessed? f/1.6 is darker than f/1.0, regardless of what sensor sizes you use (sensor size doesn’t affect image brightness). So while a 50mm lens However, if you want equivalent photos on both these cameras, you’ll need to shoot your full-frame sensor at twice the focal length, twice the f-number, and four times the ISO. By checking this box I consent to the use of my information, as detailed in the Privacy Policy. of the scene before you ends on on the film is It’s not the easiest thing to understand in paragraph form, so I created two color-coded tables below to make things easier to visualize. In digital photography, the image sensor format is the shape and size of the image sensor.. (They aren’t hard, and I’ll cover them below.) There’s never been a more affordable way to get into digital medium format photography before, and whilst Pentax paved the way over recent years … Note: On Photography Life, we already have a very detailed article on equivalence here. I do want to emphasize that equivalence is rarely something you’ll need to think about in the field – but it does matter a lot in certain non-field cases. I am confused about one thing…and this may be a bit unorthodox. What determines how much Further, with the bigger negatives of medium format… All the best. That makes the photos look equivalent at a broad level (field of view, depth of field, and brightness). In other words, a 100mm lens on 645 sees about the same angle of view as a 60mm lens does on 35mm film.. Quite simply, it’s the way you can take similar looking photos with two different cameras – two cameras of differing sensor sizes, to be more specific. Click to view full screen and switch from one to the next: A lot of photographers stop here, but that’s not good. Excellent work indeed. Hi, just logged in for the first time to say thank you. it. The 645 format relatively seems to be something seen as a small format, but it is usually 60×45 mm on 120 medium-format … than the other), while the 2� square (6�6) format is If so, why didnt you just say that, much more simple. Instead, you’ll have to set it to base ISO as well, and darken the photo as needed with a faster shutter speed. The first chart simply shows crop factors: While the second chart shows you the equivalent of a 100mm lens on your camera: All right. For example, this leads to equivalence between f/4 and ISO 1000 (on a 2x crop camera) compared to f/8 and ISO 4000 (full-frame). As I said a moment ago, the exact fix is (f-number) x (crop factor). (or perhaps even greater), which is why different In practice, even if a Various mathematically-inclined people have designed complex formulae to “convert” 35mm format focal lengths to 2¼ square format focal lengths. 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). even, gasp, position. The 200mm focal length of the 645 lens is effectively the same as a 125mm lens on a 35mm camera, and when we crop the image by using the 200mm 645 lens on a 35mm camera, it effectively becomes exa… And you’re quite right to think that. There are so many details that can change the discussion wildly, especially if your camera sensors don’t have the same pixel-level performance (which is pretty much all sensors). I want to understand this so please reply. routinely quote both the diagonal and horizontal sensor, is equivalent to a 157.5mm f/2.1 lens. Unfortunately, we can’t side-step the science here. This waterfall was photographed with two exposures, one at f/22 at 1⁄15 sec and one at f/8 at 1/125 sec. designed for use on a 35mm camera could not be used Add 10%: 2.5mm = 27.5mm  So It measures 87.3mm diagonally. range of lenses that you want to read about. Even the Specifically, the larger-sensor camera is now capturing underexposed images, which is no surprise, since you decided to use a smaller aperture on it. obviously a much larger amount of the scene will be than 120mm � I do not have the technical equipment In fact, sometimes suitable “35mm format” lenses – especially enlarger lenses – make great Medium Format macro lenses. Quite simply, now that we’ve entered a bit of a cool-down period on the equivalence debate, it’s become a good time to turn back and examine it with rational heads. The XCD 30mm F3.5 is a wide-angle prime lens for the Hasselblad X1D and 907X 50C medium-format camera systems. That’s two stops of difference. One picks up the camera and lens of choice for the session or day and sets the camera, frames the image taking into consideration any other tools such as flash, filters or whatever. I also don’t want photographers to waste their time in forum arguments if there is any way around it. Equivalence is just a method of procrastination, the result of gas or ego. After the 2012-2017 Great Equivalence War, photographers everywhere agreed never to utter that word again. they must offer lenses in them. At this point, the obvious difference is that one photo is darker than the other. If I use a medium format lens on a camera with a 1″ sensor, the aperture is tiny (less than 1)? ... as small as vintage medium format goes). section, click below and then choose the accessory In this case, you need to look at the ratio of their sensor diagonals to find the crop factor between the two. The 120mm lenses from based on published specifications available to me at manufacturers of lenses for medium format cameras On 1.5x APS-C sensors, that’s f/4 and f/6, roughly 1.3 stops of difference. That means that you should have roughly equivalent depth of field at f/2.8 on the Pentax and around f/2 on the Nikon. One chooses a camera and a lens. The one you still have but don’t use. Medium format will have an edge just like FF has to APS-C or m43. relationship between 6�6 and 35mm, take the 6�6 So, if your large sensor is at base ISO, you probably can’t do the ISO part of equivalence; the small sensor simply can’t go low enough to compensate. Because the example photo above simulates a 2x crop factor, that’s simply f/8. Most likely, it already has better high ISO performance than the crop sensor, so it works out to be roughly an even trade. Companies simply don’t make 35mm f/0.8 or 9mm f/1.2 lenses for APS-C crop sensor cameras, which is what it would take to achieve equivalence. Also by magic. Note that certain focal lengths camera records as much of the scene before it as a The best you can do is get the theory right – the math in this article – and accept that image quality differences are going to remain based on your sensor itself. I noticed the same thing with the 67 M 55-100 mm f/4.5 zoom being "colder" than the equivalent 645 FA 55-110 mm f/5.6 zoom. Just enter the focal length and maximum aperture of your lens and then choose a sensor size. than 120mm, or the Arsenal Vega lens is slightly longer It directly matters any time you try to recreate the look of a particular image (such as an inspiring portrait photo you saw online), or when you’re deciding among camera systems in the first place. They are called "645" because they use the nominal 6cm x 4.5cm film size from 120 roll film.They came in three major generations: first-generation manual-focus film cameras, second-generation manual-focus film cameras, and autofocus film/digital cameras. All you have proved is that the bigger the sensor, the shallower the depth of field. Yes even for professionals. For example, say that you’re trying to calculate equivalence between an APS-C and medium format camera. There are useful things to be gained from equivalence. For a simplified discussion of image sensors see image sensor.. (They aren’t hard, and I’ll cover them below.) Medium format brings with it bulkier and heavier lenses mated to large cameras, but what of medium format with a top-performing lens of the same weight as even diminutive Leica M rangefinder lenses? A crop sensor is exactly like a crop from a large sensor. Small differences aren’t a surprise – and there are a few here – but overall these photos are as equivalent as they can be. length of as little as 130mm, or as much as 139mm Be aware that most manufacturers Medium format mirrorless systems are a great way to get into photography with a sensor that’s larger than a full frame 35mm sensor, so long as you can afford the higher price point. the time. If I have F1.0 APC-C lense, and F1.6 Full Frame lense, the ISO values are the same? (about 10% of the resulting number). (I know it’s hardly been a paragraph, but my foot is starting to twitch, so I’ll break my no-disclaimer rule just once to say okay, unless you crop or stitch a panorama.). 645 film (56 x 41.5mm) has 2.6 times the area of full-frame 35mm (36 x 24mm), or a 0.62075x crop factor.. Popular 6 x 7 medium format cameras include the Mamiya RB67 , RZ67 models and the Mamiya 7 ; Pentax 67 models ; Bronica GS-1 ; Fujifilm GM670, GW670 and GF670. However, as we near the two-year anniversary of the ceasefire, it seems that isolationist thoughts – i.e., that equivalence is isolated just to focal length – are resurfacing again. Sharpness and contrast are practically the same for the two 200 mm, this surprised me a lot. Even if those lenses did exist, most crop-sensor cameras still lack ultra-low ISO values. a 50mm 6�6 lens is roughly equivalent to If you don’t also do the next step (the ISO side of things), the f/6 photo will be significantly darker. As its name implies, the GA645 series uses 120 roll film and captures images in a 645 format. The lens is designed for Hasselblad's digital 'medium-format' which features a 44x33mm camera sensor size and a 0.79x magnification. Therefore the amount of light (number of photons) is the same in both cases but is spread over a sensor area which is 4 times larger in the full frame case , so the picture is darker and to adjust for this ISO has to be increased 4 times. Back to beginning of the Accessories table, for instance. If you don’t believe me, here’s the proof: Clearly, the first image has a shallower depth of field. lens is projecting the scene onto an area 24mm high 77mm Filter Size f/2 Aperture N/A Stabilized G Mount Mid-telephoto lens for portraits High Image quality This medium telephoto lens with a focal length equivalent to 87mm in the 35mm format offers fantastic bokeh thanks to its large F2 aperture, making it the perfect portrait lens. As a side note, smartphone manufacturers have tried to get around this by using a low base ISO of around 25 on many models. My understand is as follows which is slightly different , I am wrong? (Naturally, assume the same lens, sensor megapixels, pixel-level performance, aspect ratio, people jumping in front of the camera, and the camera’s mood that day. For instance, Why? results of these calculations may be misleading, as As usual Pentax do not get a mention. And, by actual magic, full-frame sensors are about two stops better in high ISO performance than 2x crop cameras. Here's the chart: the 35mm format is rectangular (longer on one side That’s because aperture is also part of equivalence – and so is ISO. made a comparison of 6�6 and 35mm angles of view, detailed comparison. projecting the same scene onto an area 56mm high � As you can see in the images above, even though the fields of view are identical, depth of field is not (which will be more visible in the next section’s photos). As you can see, you need to square your crop factor first. This is called perspective, and it’s a cruel force if equivalence is your goal; with different perspectives, it just isn’t possible to capture two identical photos. Let’s stop this madness before it’s too late. Note: For a quick understanding of numbers like 1/2.3, skip to table of sensor formats and sizes. See, the aperture side of equivalence is actually about fixing a problem you made a moment ago. Hi Thanks. The Hasselblad XCD 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 is just shy of being a medium format version of a standard 24-70mm zoom, with an equivalent 27.65-59.25mm focal range. focal length of lenses). In fact, let’s revisit the 2x crop sensor example. Arsenal Vega (so either it is slightly shorter 3) So in you example you now have 200mm f8 (full frame) and 100mm f4 on sensor with a crop factor of 2 4) But the reason you need to increase ISO on the full frame sensor to get the same picture brightness I suggest is not because the f stop numbers are different as you suggest as lens aperture=focal length/f-stop number so the aperture diameter letting in light to each sensor is the same in both cases ie 200/8=100/4 or 25mm. Further, if you crop the MF image to a Notice I haven't said anything about depth of field. ISO 250, on the FF camera to get the same image brightness. Everyone agrees that focal length is part of equivalence. That’s because any time you move, you change the relative sizes of objects in your photo. A 200mm photo does not have the same depth of field as a cropped 100mm photo. Before I go into any details, let me simply mention one thing: the formula for equivalent aperture is exactly the same as the formula for equivalent focal length. If the desired image cannot be captured then change something like the lens or the other tools or the settings. Mostly nowadays a zoom lens to make life easier. But if you don’t at least take into account focal length, aperture, and ISO, you’ll never get equivalent photos across different camera systems. The 645 FA is autofocus and much easier to handle due to its smaller size and weight. Some variation will occur when the format aspect ratios do not match. When they come to Medium Compared to 35mm, medium format uses 3~4 times as much film surface. This is anti-climactic, if not slightly disappointing though – wouldn’t it have been great to effectively get a superb 300mm f/4 lens buy delving through the medium format lenses on ebay? That also holds up at pixel level, as you can see in the following 100% crops (after downsampling the D800e image to match the D7000): Noise levels are pretty much the same. mount could be made for it,  a 50mm lens The Mamiya 645 camera systems are a series of medium format film and digital cameras and lenses manufactured by Mamiya and its successors. You'll see that larger than 35mm formats, 50mm equivalent lenses actually sound like telephotos. So, we can expect that f/8 at 200mm provides similar depth of field as f/4 at 100mm, cropped to match the field of view. A 50mm Normal Lens on Every Format Since 50mm is the most common focal length (at least on prime lenses), let's find the equivalent of a 50mm lens on every format. square. Are Canon and Nikon the only reputable makers? Hi Heikki, in your example, the ISO values will not be the same, assuming your goal is to get the same image brightness. Next time you wonder how much image quality you give up with a phone, remember that the best case is like shooting all your DSLR images at ISO 1250. Just to refresh, that math is as follows: You need to apply all three in order to get an equivalent photo. 56mm wide (the size of a 6�6 or 2�" square frame), These days I'm active on Instagram and YouTube. Is medium format popularity on the rise? And this only applies when your fields of view are matched already – after you’ve zoomed in with the larger sensor. However, standard smartphones have tiny sensors with a 7x crop factor versus full-frame. Simples. Fine to get same field of view. exposure), a certain amount of the scene will be Or f/4 and ISO 1000 (1.5x crop camera) versus f/6 and ISO 2250 (full-frame). Medium Format ; Hasselblad XCD 21mm f/4 Lens Rp 56.150.000 Warranty: Garansi Resmi 1 Tahun . The 645 Format – The Best Entry Level for the Medium Format Camera. So, here is the same chart from earlier, but for an example aperture of f/10: You now have two photos from different camera sensors, yet you’ve managed to capture the same field of view and the same depth of field – not bad. A 2� square format focal lengths. What about Fuji, don’t the exist in your world? Why Focal Length Is Clearly Part of Equivalence, Sometimes, Equivalence Isn’t Possible with Your Gear, Print Size, Total Light, Airy Disks, Circles of Confusion, and Eigenvalues, A System to Pick the Right Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO, Understanding ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture - A Beginner's Guide, Nikon D300 vs D90 High ISO Noise Comparison, Z6 II vs. Z7 II – advice on which one better for enthusiast level, To watermark or not to watermark on prints, Equivalent Focal Length = (Focal Length) x (Crop Factor), Equivalent Aperture = (F-Number) x (Crop Factor). wider than the horizontal angle! quote the diagonal angle of view (it is My photos have been displayed in galleries worldwide, including the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and exhibitions in London, Malta, Siena, and Beijing. Also assume that this is the only such disclaimer I’ve included in the article, so feel free to repeat it aloud as needed below. And it does. approach. exactly that focal length. A number of years ago I ), As you almost certainly know, you need to use a longer lens on the full-frame camera to match the crop camera. And total light…………in English. a 28mm lens on a 35mm SLR, Another example:  40mm Take, for instance, a 50mm MF different from each other. �80mm� Biometar and Xenotar lenses in the above Characterized by its especially slim design, the GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR Lens from FUJIFILM is a compact 40mm-equivalent prime designed for the medium format G-mount GFX camera system. So, what’s the underlying formula here? On top of that, I believe that learning the advanced technical side of photography makes it easier to internalize the basics, something that directly impacts the quality of your photos. prefer a simpler approach! Before we start, what is equivalence? manufacturer�s �135mm� lens may in fact have a focal Hopefully this fact is already second nature to you. However, many lenses labelled �135mm� are not Yes, it is true that at a given field of view and aperture, there is a shallower depth of field than a 35mm equivalent. If you’re at ISO 100 on the APS-C camera, you would need ISO 100 * (1.6^2), i.e. The practical use case would be to put a Pentax 67 300 F4 lens on an adapted Nikon 1 J5 camera for astrophotography. PL provides various digital photography news, reviews, articles, tips, tutorials and guides to photographers of all levels, By Spencer Cox 50 CommentsLast Updated On July 14, 2019. It goes into things like print size, pixel density, diffraction, and the ugly duckling of “total light.” Feel free to read it if you’re interested in those topics. compare lenses across cameras with different formats (sensor sizes Fine. Don’t misinterpret that I’m saying “ISO 200 on M4/3 is the same as ISO 800 on full frame.” It’s not. (for instance Carl Zeiss Oberkochen for Hasselblad) If you want to take equivalentphotos with a Nikon DX crop-sensor camera and a Nikon FX full-frame camera, you’ll need to do a few calculations. Sure, a thousand little differences mean that your photos wil… For examples, the most famous medium format 6x7 lens was the Pentax 105mm f/2.4. That leads to an equivalent ISO of 25 x 7^2, or about ISO 1250. Nasim’s famous quote, “Everyone is right, everyone is wrong,” has been etched both into the peace treaty and into the hearts of millions. Thank you for the great insight. Before we start, what is equivalence? You can sit down behind a trailer of several hundred lenses and work out which is closest to the camera equivalent you had and fell in love with 20 years ago. Sure, a thousand little differences mean that your photos will never look identical even after you get the math right. Equivalent to a ~40mm f/2.9 in 35mm-format terms, the 12oz = 335gram Fujifilm GF 50/3.5 lacks the lens speed but nails it on […] wide-angle lens would on a 35mm camera. The new mirrorless medium format Fujifilm GFX system has really shaken the camera industry lately, and judging by the initial responses from photographers I know, this is a format and camera system that’s going to be around for some time. All of equivalence – all of it – assumes that you don’t move your physical position. Finally, the Hasselblad 350 mm superachromat is just too expensive for my pockets. My mm f/ lens, on a. Micro Four Thirds Canon APS-C Nikon APS-C APS-H Cropped Medium Format Medium Format. While I’m at it, I’ll mention another thing: this is only talking about depth of field. offer a lens with a focal length of 135mm. lenses that purport to have the same focal length on a 35mm camera produces what we might call a Your apertures in this case are f/4 and f/8, as I showed a moment ago. Ken. For example, a 100mm lens on a 1.5x camera is like a 150mm lens on full-frame camera, at least for field of view. The crop factor for that sensor is 1.5x. I also wasn't a big fan of the 5 blade straight aperture of the Hasselblad V lenses. MF lens � 2 = 20mm + 10%: 2mm The CZJ Biometar (note reducing the sensor size makes it a darker lens, not a brighter one, sorry) As sensor size decreases, depth of field will increase for a … I know, I know. If you see an amazing photo and wonder how to get the same look in your images, just do some quick calculations to figure out the right settings. Recently everyone is raving about the launch of Fujifilm Medium Format camera… I can’t resist the temptation and hence wanted to get one for myself… but I don’t have the money to spare… so I bought something “equivalent” at about 20 times cheaper instead 😛 Enter to the world of medium format with Fujifilm GW690III… that would enable me to check the exact but also by the size of the recording medium behind Equivalent focal lengths with 35mm Thanks for helping me help you! Format, a whole new set of focal lengths needs to be Crap. If you want to take equivalent photos with a Nikon DX crop-sensor camera and a Nikon FX full-frame camera, you’ll need to do a few calculations. Whether you’re using a … If a 50mm focal length Pentax-a 645 55mm f2.8 medium format manual focus, auto aperture or manual aperture works well, see pictures for exterior condition, some dust in lens, no haze or fungus. Offering an equivalent 24mm focal length and priced at around £3,600, we find out just what the Hasselblad XCD 30mm F3.5 is capable of in our latest in-depth review complete with full-size sample photos. When you do set ISO 100 and f/1.0 on the aps-c camera, and ISO 250 and f/1.6 on the FF camera (assuming you use equivalent focal lengths on both cameras; i.e., 100mm on aps-c and 160mm on FF), your photos will be fully equivalent. You get the point. Equivalence goes completely out the window once you start moving. Instead, you’re left with only three variables still standing: focal length, aperture, and ISO. What we have is a 63mm f/1.5 (full-frame equivalent) lens, with the aperture equivalence referring to depth of field. mathematically-inclined people have designed complex An equivalent exposure is one that relies on the same amount of light for the proper exposure but juggles the aperture and shutter speed settings to yield different image effects.
