1A crop sensor camera has a smaller sensor than full frame sensor and therefore crops into the image. Usually entry level cameras or cameras in a lower price range use crop sensor cameras. If you want to know more about full frame vs crop sensor, have a look at this video: Crop vs Full Frame Sensor for the experts: for these images we used an APS-C sensor with a crop factor of 1.5x.

2A half body shot would require the photographer to get closer to the subject and therefore create more background blur. But that is not the only factor about background blur. Check out our video The 5 Factors of Background Blur.
