The actual size ofthe photograph, either slide or negative, produced by a camera; in 35mm photography,the picture measures 24mm x 36mm and has a diagonal of 43mm, While the new APS (AdvancePhoto System), several new formats were included, including panorama . While it canalso be explained as shape and size of image provided by camera or presented in finalprint or transparency. Governed in the camera by the opening at the rear of the bodyover which the film passes or is placed. The standard 35 mm format is 36 x 24 mm;half-frame, 18 x 24 mm; 126 size, 28 x 28 mm; 110, 17 x 13 mm; standard roll film(120 size), 2x 2 in.mirglossary
The shape and size of a thing - used in photography principally in reference to small, medium and large format films and the photography equipment employed in handling each different film format (e.g. a medium format camera).
Usually called the Crop Factor. A number used to multiply a lens s actual focal length to express how much of an apparent increase you can expect in the effective focal length of any traditional 35mm SLR lens you use on a dSLR camera. Also called the Focal Length Multiplier or FLM. Typical format factors are in the range 1.5 or 1.6 to 2.0.
The size or aspect ratio of a motion picture frame.
Format (noun) is used to describe the area of a film used by a camera to record a photo or the way a digital file is saved (see film format). Or it is the way that a file is saved so that it can be seen and is compatible with other applications and/or certain computers (see file format). To format (verb) is to lay-out or organize text on a computer, or to prepare a digital disk for use with a certain type of computer.
Includes physical film width, aspect ratio of the image, perforations per frame (pulldown), direction of film transport, frame speed, among others. Standard frame speed is assumed to be 24 frames per second. The old Academy format, which had the 35mm film pulled vertically past the film plane (4-perf pulldown), used an aspect ratio of 1.375:1 with an image size of 22x16 mm. The anamorphic format, using a 4-perf frame, needs a special lens on the camera to squeeze the image, and a similar lens on the projector to unsqueeze it. VistaVision, a horizontal format, was 8 perforations wide.
