What is the Nikon D3200 Crop Factor?

The Nikon D3200 has a 1.5x crop factor. Knowing the crop factor will be helpful for understanding the angle of view a lens will have.

APS-C sensors cover a smaller area than full frame sensors. They are also referred to as “crop sensors” because the smaller area is the same as if it was “cropped” from a larger area.

To get the same images from a APS-C sensor paired with a 50mm lens, a 75mm lens would have to be used on a camera with a full frame sensor.
