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. 

As well as a video tutorial, you can visit The School of Photography website where they go into detail on what a camera sensor is, why there are different sensor sizes and the pros/cons of each sensor type.
