Cropped versus Full Frame sensor
Sorry if this is in the wrong part of the Forum)
I got back into photography a few years ago and use my son's Canon 1000D which, as everyone will know, is an entry level DSLR camera with a cropped sensor.
I have always assumed, since the 1000D is an entry level and not particularly expensive DSLR, that a cropped sensor was "inferior" to one that is full frame.
However, a few weeks ago I was talking to someone who has worked in a reputable camera shop for quite a few years and he told me that this was not actaulally the case.
I was surpised at this and when I met a professional photograper few days ago I asked him for his view on the matter. He said a full frame sensor was always preferable to one
that is cropped.
Now I am confused and wondered if any of the many knowledgeable people on here could clarify matters.
