So, I certainly see the differnece in digital v. film cameras when I strap my 50mm lens on my Fuji S2 versus my Nikon N80. Much wider angle in the film camera due to the size of the ccd in the S2. I think the number is somehting like a 1.5 times difference.
So I understand that using my 50mm on my S2 is really like using about a 75mm. Now, what does this do to the depth of field calculations?
Do you look up DOF using a 50mm or a 75mm focal length then?
Here's one of the many online DOF calculators if anybody is interested:
I imagine this is pretty obvious to some of you, but it kept me awake for awhile last night, so I though I'd ask.
Do you get the compression that a 75mm would give you? Feel free to retitle this thread if somebody figures out a better way to ask if a 50mm still has the characteristics of a 50mm when it's being used on a digital where the ccd is smaller than a full 35mm.
