Image taken with the Sony R1 digital camera, using a focal length of 14.3mm
in 35mm terms) and at 1/400 sec, F8. This image exhibits no noticeable
vignetting / corner shading / falloff. This is because, in 35mm terms, the
R1 sensor crops a 14.3mm image to the same field of view that is provided by
a 24.3mm lens on a full frame camera (14.3mm x crop
factor of 1.7). See this article
about the so-called "telephoto advantage" of an APS-C camera when compared
with a full frame camera.
to see (for comparative purposes) a wide angle image taken with the
full frame Sony A900. Note, however, that because the A900 is a full frame

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site,
they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has
been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the
original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame
cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
