Larger sensors produce images with shallower depth of field, right? <a href="https://fstoppers.com/education/no-larger-sensors-do-not-produce-shallower-depth-field-254158" >Fstoppers states</a> that there&#39;s more to it than that. In important ways, depth of field depends on much more than sensor size and maximum aperture, situations such as focal length and focus distance matter as well.

In the video below, Lee Morris of Fstoppers starts by breaking down how a lens works. In a simplified sense, light rays are reflected off of objects and a lens can focus light rays from a single specific point onto the digital sensor. Even if more than...
