An overview of the different sensor sizes in digital cameras. Simple explanations of crop sensors, full frame sensors and what that translates to in the real world.

Usually the larger the sensor the better low light performance, better image quality and greater artistic freedom – downsides are cost and the requirement for bigger, heavier and more expensive lenses.
