[filmscanners] Re: film and scanning vs digital photography



I find it somewhat ironic that you are asking me to define a term you
presented, but I believe I used your term within your context.

I believe as the term was used,  "Reach" would mean the number of
degrees of angle of the image that is captured onto the sensor, (lesser
degrees being indicative of higher telephoto magnification), and this
would be dependent upon the sensor area resolution.

So, should a smaller full sensor chip provide an absolute resolution of
say, 2000 pixels across to capture a 12 degree angle of an image, and to
get an equal degree angle from a full sensor the resolution of that
cropped area is only 1800 pixels across, I might indicate that the full
frame sensor has less "reach" with the same lens.
