Does Sensor Size Matter? Camera Sensor Size Comparison

The Slanted Lens:

We compare 4 sensor sizes to see how they compare in print image quality: Hasselblad X1D II 50C, Sony a7R IV, Sony a6600 and Panasonic GH5. See how much difference there is in the Medium, Full-frame, APS-C and Micro 4/3 Sensors. Special thanks to our friends at LensProToGo and Datacolor for helping us make this comparison possible.

Did Panasonic Make a Mistake Going Full Frame?

Camera Conspiracies:

I want to discuss whether or not Panasonic made a mistake by going full frame. Dividing your attention in two different directions never leads to us getting better cameras. Micro four thirds releases have been lackluster to say the least, and Panasonic with their stubborn contrast detect autofocus isn’t turning any heads in full frame when there are much better cameras available. Was it a mistake for them to try to ask for a piece of the full frame pie when there is already so much competition?

Nikkei reports: Panasonic might do restructure the LUMIX business

Nikkei has posted an interesting “rumor” about Panasonic plans with the Lumix camera brand.

  1. Because of the difficult environment Panasonic plans to do a “structural reform” of the business.
  2. Nikkei writes that this could end in a “collaboration with other companies“.

Panasonic also told at Sankeibiz that their focus is now on attracting video customers. This is a market that is growing and that’s where they will focus their product development.

What I know: I have been told that in NO WAY Panasonic plans to do what Olympus did: It means they will not sell their Imaging Business.
