A Digital Camera That Acts More Like a Film One

Serious amateur photographers who switch to digital single-lens reflex cameras are sometimes disappointed to find that their lenses don't behave as they did with film. That is because the light sensors on most digital S.L.R.'s are considerably smaller than a frame of 35-millimeter film. This changes the lenses' field of view and also makes it more difficult to highlight a subject by making the background go out of focus.
