+ What the heck does full frame mean?

+ Is the Mini LF Camera more light sensitive?

Technically it has the same light sensitivity as other Arri cameras, however the larger field of view allows for shallower DOF with a comparable super 35 lens.

+ How do I figure out field of view?

To figure out a full frame equivelent field of view in LF full frame mode, take a Super 35mm lens and divide by 1.5.
