Full Frame?

Mon Mar 04, 2002 12:33 am

OK, I've noticed a number of people using these words in the remarks section, along with the fact they are using a *****mm lens !!. Thing is non of the pictures are full frame on the plane, so what is full frame ??

Probably mean that they haven't cropped the photo after scanning it.

A full frame shot is one where the aircraft takes up about 85-90% of the significant axis of the film image before croppping. That's the way I have always understood it. Are there differening opinions?

Full frame means to me that a shot is not cropped. It means the shot is just as the slide or negative was. Also, It means that no zooming in on the slide has taken place.

You are right. Full frame is showing the entire slide or negative regardles how small or big the motif is.

Below are some examples of what avid slide collectors would regard as "full frame." It basically entails the aircraft covering the entire whole width of the slide frame... from nose to tail without clipping either one. And it doent have to be a ramp 50mm shots either, it can also pertain to 200mm zoom shots.

And here are some "full frame" action shots... basically same rules as the ground shots but in action.

So basically the idea in "full frame" is to cover up the entire slide area from end to end.

Luis, it looks like every other boring sunny 50mm side on shot I've seen here over the years....  Big grin

Here's another boring one...

Your shot makes me wonder if there isn't such a thing as "over full frame."

Well, full frame can mean two things, if I hold an aircraft photo in my hand and the pictured aircraft fills up the whole photo, then it is full frame. But, if I have a scan of any other slide I would comment "full frame" to indicate that this is what the actual original looks like, and that it hasn't been cropped. In this case it doesn't matter if the subject covers the whole size of the photo or not.

Just my 2 cents..

I would have rotated that to get the horizon straight, but as after that I must have cropped it, there would be missing a piece from the wing and the nose would be just visible. I should have panned the camera before taking that photo...  Big grin
