What is a Crop Factor & Why Does it Matter? [Explained]

Oct 30, 2021

This is one of those topics that pissed me off early on learning video that was never properly explained and always used jargon that made 0 sense to me. '

In this video, we're going to cover what is a camera's crop factor, why it matters, and what relation that has to what lenses you should use in your recording space. This is why you don't want to just buy random or even highly recommended lenses or cameras without understanding what you're actually investing into.

If you want to see what this looks like behind the scenes, in a video covering the Sigma 16mm f1.4 lens, you can see how much space do you need if you're going to use the Sigma 16mm f1.4 lens and how close you can be to the camera if you're recording in a small space.
