Perhaps a no brainer question but as someone growing up using DSLR cameras with smaller sensors than full frame I was wondering what’s the “standard” when referring to focal lengths. In the podcast and even interviews Roger refers to different focal lengths and how they might affect the experience of the viewer. This is always referring to the focal length as experienced on a full frame sensor?
On DSLR’s and even the Alexa Mini the sensors are Super 35 or smaller which comes with a crop factor so it doesn’t really translate. A 35mm lens on a Full Frame camera is around 27,5mm on a Super 35. So basically when you hear Roger or other cinematographers talking about lens choice, is it always referring to the lens in relation to a full frame camera?
