Sony Camera Information

Why is SONY ILX-LR1 called a full-frame camera and what are its advantages?

The frame is the size of the sensor, and the film era refers to the size of the film. The sensor sizes of different formats actually vary greatly.

The sensor size of a full-frame camera is 36 x 24 mm, the same size as 35 mm film. The sensor size of SONY ILX-LR1 is 35 mm (35.7×23.8 mm), so it is called a full-frame camera.


As a full-frame camera, the ILX-LR1 can capture more light and detail, with higher dynamic range and better low-light performance. Compared with other smaller sensors, full-frame cameras have a wider viewing angle and better background blur effects, and are widely used in professional inspection fields and photography enthusiasts.


Sensor size classification


There are several common types of camera sensor size classifications:


Full Frame Sensor: The size is 36×24 mm, the same size as 35 mm film. Commonly found in professional and high-end cameras, it has higher pixel density and better low-light performance.


APS-C sensor (Advanced Photo System type-C Sensor): The size is approximately 22.2×14.8 mm, which is smaller than a full-frame sensor. Commonly found in mid-range and entry-level cameras, with higher pixel density and narrower viewing angles.


4/3 sensor (Four Thirds Sensor): measuring 17.3×13 mm, smaller than a full-frame sensor. Mainly used in mirrorless cameras , with smaller size and lighter weight.


1-inch sensor: The size is about 13.2×8.8 mm, smaller than APS-C sensor and 4/3 sensor. Commonly found in premium compact cameras and drones, it has higher pixel density and better low-light performance. SONY 4K ultra-high-definition integrated camera core FCB-CS8230 has a large photosensitive area due to the use of a 1-inch sensor.


In addition, there are smaller-sized sensors, such as 1/2.8-inch sensors, 1/1.8-inch sensors, etc., which are commonly found in ordinary compact cameras and mobile phone cameras. Larger sensors generally have better image quality and low-light performance, but also increase the size and weight of the camera. When choosing a camera, you can choose the appropriate sensor size based on your actual needs.

Advantages of the ILX-LR1 full-frame camera


The SONY ILX-LR1 full-frame camera has a large sensor, larger photosensitive area and higher pixel density, which has the following advantages:


Better image quality performance: Full-frame cameras have a larger photosensitive area and can capture more light and details, resulting in clearer and more detailed images. Color reproduction is more accurate, the dynamic range is wider, and more realistic colors and textures can be presented.


Better low-light performance: Due to a larger photosensitive area, full-frame cameras perform better in low-light conditions and can take clearer, low-noise photos, suitable for shooting in darker environments.


Greater background blur effect: Full-frame cameras can obtain a larger depth of field range under the same aperture, thereby achieving a more obvious background blur effect and making the subject more prominent.


Wider field of view: Full-frame cameras have a wider field of view and can capture more scenes and details, suitable for scenes that require a wide-angle field of view.


SONY ILX-LR1 full-frame camera, with a maximum static image of 61 mega pixels , is specially designed for drones. It is often used for inspections in wind turbines, photovoltaic power stations, oil pipelines and other fields, and can provide higher quality images. Performance.
