      I just upgraded to a full frame Nikon D750, I know it's a very personal reason but it just FEELS so much more like a real camera, I like the heft and the ergonomics of it. Previously had an APS-C Canon 500D and now when I pick it up, it feels too light, almost like it's fake.

      More practically, I prefer performance over size (or lack of), and the larger body fits my hand better with more room for external buttons.

      I have done an odd experiment with 6D, SL2 Canon and MFT Lumix - where I am shooting close-ups and trying to evaluate how sharp the lens or sensors are - my comparison is based on me shooting FILM for many many years - and I am not impressed with digital sharpness. I've tried using autofocus as well as manual - and nothing compares to slide or color negative film sharpness - IMHO. AM I imagining things or is this also a complaint with everyone. I have used prime lenses, zooms, Canon, Tamron, Sigman lenses - and nothing is as sharp as film. I will say that out of the 3 cameras - the 6D produces sharper images than the SL2 or MFT. Any feedback is welcomed.

      EXCELLENT upload... nailed it ! I resumed my photographic journey just over a year ago with the APS-C sensor, then I got caught up in the (real photographers use FF, all other sensors are just for 'snap shooters') After carrying round a Canon FF kit my back wanted a change, I spent a fantastic afternoon in a camera shop and ended up coming out with a second hand OMD E-M1 Mki, I was in love again. I now own and use both Panasonic and Olympus gear and couldn't be happier.

      Thanks for your great channel and assessment of different sensor sizes and applications. I have reached the same conclusions. I love using my 4/3's cameras for shooting 4K videos, travel photography, sports and wildlife. They provide great value for the money. However, I have found they are not suitable for shooting indoor events - particularly with fast action.  

      As a dance photographer, I need an aps-c or full frame cameras with fast zoom lenses to capture fast action in low light. I have shot many dance shows with my aps-c Pentax K3 with a Tamron 70-200 f2.8. Although the Pentax K3 is 5 years old, it provides great features for the price including dual card slots, IBIS, good battery life, weather sealing, 24mp, and 8fps. You can buy a used Pentax K3 on eBay for just $400-$500. The image quality of the Pentax K3 far exceeds my 4/3s cameras, however, the AF is limited and it's not good for videos (although it has mic and headphone inputs).  

      I am eager to replace my Pentax and Panasonic cameras with a new full frame or aps-c camera that will provide the best of both worlds with similar features; however, the costs are much higher for new cameras with similar features. The Sony A7iii is very tempting but it is far beyond my budget with lenses. In terms of new aps-c cameras, the Sony a6500 and Fuji X-T30 are tempting but they have restrictions like limited record times, single card slots, limited battery life, and possible overheating issues.  The cost of a 70-200mm f2.8 lens for Fuji and Sony is also much higher.

      I would love your recommendations for a new or used camera that fits my needs and budget. I am looking for an aps-c or FF camera under $1500 with excellent auto focus, 4K video, dual card slots, IBIS, good battery life, weather sealing, 24-30mp, and 8-12fps. Bonus points for a flip screen, headphone jack, optional battery grip, and affordable third party lenses. Am I dreaming? Does this camera exist or should I keep waiting?

      I like your analysis. After about 10 years, I have given up APS-C and gone to a G9, GX7 and Canon 5D III. I used mostly FF lenses on a 77D, which didn't give it much of a size advantage over the 5D III, and when I bought the G9 I like the IQ better than the 77D! And I love the tiny overall size of an MFT kit. There are not many FF lenses that are as good as or better than the pro-level MFT lenses as well.

      I believe you are wrong in stating the speed of an mft f/2.8 is less than a full frame. Remember no external light meter ever had a setting for the type of camera!

      In terms of exposure, an aperture of f/2.8 is f/2.8 period. Only the DoF is doubled, though I have to say 6400asa on mft is moving into optimism. I try to keep 1600 and below on mft, but very often find its DoF of benefit compared to using my FF wide open, when I'd often then see all too clearly that the autofocus had missed.

      Likewise, using its amazing IBIS in low light you can handhold an Olympus camera in low ISO for crazy exposure lengths which with an FF would not be possible.

      This is a great video! Why? because those are the only two camera's I would consider at the moment, Sony @7iii and G9... I like the physical characteristics of the G9 and Lumix menu system, portability, virtually everything that doesn't relate to image quality, and I like the Sony for the complete opposite, image quality primarily. For my subject photography, I do architecture, interiors and housing landscapes along with video of the same. You have experience with both camera's, in your opinion which of these two would work best on a professional basis. I use these images and video's as I am a property agent that enjoys doing my own photography and post these on social media and my websites. Thank you so much for your content, I find them immensely helpful as I am somewhat new to this...

      So much misinformation out there. You nailed the explanation! Many people seem to miss that the total amount of light captured is key, and the same F-number with different sensor sizes can gather only the same amount of light per area, not in total. (as you mentioned @3:10)

      Very even-handed and logical analysis ! Thank you :-) I shoot both APS-c (Sony) and micro 4 thirds (Olympus) depending on the situation and my intent. I like them both but wish Sony would put out more (reasonably priced) weather resistant zooms and faster prime APS-C lenses with OSS.

      I currently use the MFT system to my satisfaction. But I have used all of them and enjoyed them all for their different qualities. I do think FF will probably be the future inevitably. But maybe MFT will become the entry level default camera for beginners after smartphones. Who knows. I love all the camera systems myself.

      The "light gathering" advantage of FF is a misnomer. For example f/1.2 on FF vs MFT vs APSc is the same exposure triangle for all systems. Likewise the often bandied "equivalence" is also a misleading. In many (most?) situations, you will be shooting at mid-apertures or focused near infinity to maximize DOF.

      about 2 months ago
    • The Hybrid Shooter
      The Hybrid Shooter In reply to sandb

      +sandb No, the exposure is the same because the ISO is set that way. FF sensor absorbs more light overall, which is why the noise level is lover.

      about 2 months ago
    • sandb
      sandb In reply to sandb

      +The Hybrid Shooter Of course it's different; the light cone emerging from a FF lens is spread across an area four times an MFT sensor. The light per unit area is effectively the same, which is why the exposure triangle is the same for both. Now go take some photos.

      PS: The fact that a speedbooster concentrates the light cone from a FF lens thus effectively increasing the aperture number demonstrates my point.

      about 2 months ago
    • The Hybrid Shooter
      The Hybrid Shooter In reply to sandb

      No, it isn't. You will get the same exposure with same setting, but only because the ISO compensating for that (there is noise difference). Actual light gathering is different.

      If I was using the Oly with a 300MM lens for a 600MM field of view, is there any way to also get the bokeh that comes with a longer focal length 600MM lens?

      When tracking a distant subject like a race car or footballer - or my nephews in a crowd - I often need separation from an ugly or distracting background.

      Maybe a bokeh art filter?

      I think the image processing in smartphones now commonly generates artificial bokeh or maybe a gaussian blur.

      Bought my first "real" camera two years ago and after considering all the angles(or so I thought), I decided on m43 in the form of a Panasonic G7. Well, now that I know a lot more, I think I got lucky and made the right choice. I've since upgraded to a G85 and a GH5 and a couple of gimbals, a Sigma 16mm, a Lumix 25mm and 42.5mm, and a Laowa 7.5mm. I can shoot gorgeous 4k all day long without heat issues and even though I still have a lot to learn, this stable of cameras is not a limitation for me. And you add everything together, and I've got about as much invested in the whole kit as I'd have with a Sony FF and a kit lens.
