Crop Sensor Focal Length Primer



What do all those focal lengths written on your camera's lens actually mean? Today we find out exactly what they mean on DSLR Film Noob. Deejay takes us through the paces and shows the differences when shooting the same subject from 10' away. Which lens do you need to give you the look you seek? You should know a bit better after watching this.

It's a decent test, though Deejay failed to mention which camera he was using (though based on his other videos posted on this site, it's the T2i) and its crop factor (the T2i is 1.6). This is a better answer, or at least a complement to his answer in terms of finding the right lens to use, since the focal length will be magnified to that factor.
