When it comes to photography, larger sensors boast better image quality. Sony's Full-Frame cameras contain sensors almost twice the size of those found in APS-C cameras and about 20 times larger than smartphone cameras.
This allows for increased light collection that gives you not only professional quality images with reduced noise,but also retained details in both shadows and highlights.
Capturing scenes at

smartphone results in grainy images.
Sony's Full-Frame cameras boast larger
pixels that capture a higher light to noise ratio, resulting in cleaner images.
Bokeh helps to isolate the subject in focus, and effortlessly draws the viewer's attention to what is important. Full-Frame cameras possess a shallower depth of field, giving you smooth and beautiful background bokeh.
Cropped sensors use a smaller part of the lens to create images, making images appear more "zoomed in". Full-Frame sensors utilise the full extent of a lens' "true" focal length, allowing you to capture wider.
The tonal range at which a camera can accurately capture between the bright and dark parts of an image is also known as dynamic range. Full-Frame cameras have a higher dynamic range that retains more details and colour depth.
