Photographers who engage themselves in macro photography keep being seduced by this field. One of the satisfying things is to reveal what the human eye cannot plainly see. This gives us the opportunity to change our perspective on this tiny world, so different from the one we know. It often looks like another planet. That’s what macro-photography is, revealing things we can’t see and show it to the world.
Compact, micro 4/3rd, APS-C, Full Frame?!
There had been, there is and there will always be a debate around sensors sizes, especially lately as the technology gets better and better. It seems like compact cameras, like the Sony RX100 Mark III has reached such a high image quality it can compete with APS-C formats from entry level DSLRs. Pretty amazing! We can also read here and there that the Sony A6000 can almost compete with full frame cameras. Even more astonishing, some risk themselves to compare full frame A7 to medium format cameras.
What’s next? Well, Sony will soon try to introduce a new competitor to the Hasselblad medium format cameras. But remember, Pentax, Nikon and Hasselblad use Sony’s sensors.
Maybe size does matter when it comes to photography!
But are you sure?
Take the test to see if you can tell the difference between compacts, micro 4/3rd, APS-C or Full Frame sensors. You’ll see that it’s not that easy!
I took the test and got a score of 62% only.
What’s yours? At iLHP, we are curious to know! ;-p
First of all, I want to thank Edward T. for giving me the opportunity to collaborate with him on this website and share with you all my experience of photography.
So Hi, I’m Chris M. and I live in the Paris area. That being said, it is not relevant information as my photography style is about macro photography, natural landscapes and silhouetted subjects.
