The aspect ratio of a video is a subtle parameter that can have a large effect on the final product. This excellent video examines the different things you should consider when choosing an aspect ratio for your work and how they'll affect how your viewer perceives the final product.
Most photographers have started with a crop camera when digital photography was introduced. Only after a few years, the full frame cameras became affordable and that is the moment when all the discussions about the effect of depth of field and crop sensors started, often with the mentioning of physics laws and mathematical calculations. Let’s try to find out with some real world examples.
It's fair to say that the Canon EOS R has had mixed reviews since its release earlier this year, and finding a balanced argument either way hasn't been easy. That's why this video from Steve Huff is refreshing in its honesty and objectivity and might just give you a different view on the EOS R.
