Cropped versus Full Frame sensor

Talk Equipment - www.talkphotography.co.uk
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.

Thanks,

Ged
