The School of Photography has put together a really great tutorial all about camera sensors to help you get a better understanding of how sensor size can affect your photography. 


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.

In the above video tutorial, The School of Photography talk about full-frame, crop factors and the effects different sensor sizes have on the focal lengths of lenses. Plus, you'll be able to learn what system is right for you and why. All of this is explained visually, too, so you can actually see the effect they have on your photography. 

"Should you get Full frame or APS-C or Micro Four Thirds? What different visual effects do sensors create? Do you need different lenses? Is it worth buying one over the other? What does it all mean?!" The School of Photography.
