      The best comparison so far. Those who say sensor size does not affect depth of field is assuming same focal length and aperture, but in reality, the shooter creates the same framing of the picture, not the same focal length, so this "theoretically correct" statement is completely useless. I would've loved a more in-depth analysis of video. The aps-c/MFT advantage in video derives from what? sensor stablization? less heat? lower resolution?

      Absolutely agree with your comments. I have been travelling a lot recently and just could not be bothered to carry more than my Nikon with 24-85 Lens.

      I then cursed all the shots I couldn’t get. Ironically, I’ve been hesitating over buying the Nikon D850 for some time now.

      In Cheekwood, Nashville for example there were chipmunks, groundhogs, red Cardinal birds and huge American Bullfrogs - absolutely none of which did I manage to get a decent photo of but could have done with the lenses I’d left at home 😥.

      Then my brother introduced me to the Panasonic micro four thirds system. I bought the GX80 with its 12-32 plus the 45-175 lens. Not only was this comfortable to have with me all the time but it also didn’t cause any problems at shows like “The Grand Ole Opry” where you cannot take in “Professional” cameras. The fantastic image stabilisation allowing much slower hand held shots has been a revelation.

      I have rapidly realised that the superlative quality of a high end full frame camera is only any good if you actually get to take the shots with it. I’ve come back from my latest trip with hundreds of brilliant shots I would never have got if I hadn’t gone to MFT.

      My thoughts are now steering towards getting the G9 body as well so I have a choice of bodies depending on how compact I need to be, the 100-300 for wildlife and airshows and a fast prime or 2 for low light and low DOF shots. The bottom line is the Micro four thirds system has really given my photography a much needed boost in enthusiasm.

      one thing, how can you say 4/3 consumer less power? the battery life on most 4/3 cams is abysmal and is a real sticking point for me. The battery life on my G85 is only decent if i turn the LCD off but in general, i find myself needing to charge the battery after every one or maybe two shooting sessions (defined as a day or so of walking around and shooting pictures intermittently). Also as far as portability, the better m 4/3 cameras are not much more portable than say aps-c and about equal in most aspects i've found, lenses are just a bit smaller, which is nice, zoom lenses considerably so but at the cost of less light gathering, a big loss. Hardly any of the options are pocketable so I end up bringing all the crap anyway.

      Of course you'll go depending your budget but it's really not fair people to try to compare apples to oranges. And you are right about fanboyism, you can still feel it in some comments especially from m43 camera owners, like they are trying to convince themselves that they did the right choice on buying a m43 Olympus OM-D E-M1 II instead a FF Sony a7 ii for the same money, in the name of portability (insignificant differences), weather sealing and so and they forget the main purpose of a camera, the ability to capture a special moment in an as much as possibly better, clearly and correctly lighted photo/video... Otherwise, if you don't care about quality, keep taking photos with your phone or other toy cameras and don't waste your money.

      Interesting comparison and useful info. Really like the form factor of the Olympus M43 cameras, very reminiscent of the manual OM film range (OM1/2 in particular). Would be great to see them launch a FF body alongside their M43, especially if they kept the body the same size. Not sure if development costs for the accompanying lens range would be justified though, given that they already have a large array of lenses for M43...

      3:20 "small sensor/lens does not gather same amount of light in absolute terms" - true, but how is that relevant, since you also admit that relative to the surface, the amount of light is equal. So a 2.8 lens on mtf is (in practice) as "fast" as a 2.8 lens on aps-c or on ff, right? In the same light condition, it results in the same shutterspeed / f stop/ISO setting. If I walk in the Netherlands in the sun and cross the border to Germany, I don't have to suddenly take out my sunglasses just because Germany is a larger country. 😉

      It is explained later in the video. Larger sensor always benefits from having larger pixels or more resolution. Total amount of light is actually the only thing that matters. Same ISO setting results in different amount of noise on different sensors. "Bigger country" analogy is completely off.

      Thanks for this review, so clear and easy to understand. When I bought into the M43 system I was aware of the depth of field implications compared to full frame, however was not aware of the differences of total light gathered and how that might impact image noise. You mention this around the 3:20 mark in your video and also go onto say that the increased base ISO of 200 on the 20mp M43 sensors goes some way to mitigating this. If you ever had the time, would be great if you could go into this in a little more depth. Also, would the dual ISO capability of the newer M43 cameras largely erode this total light gathering advantage the Full Frame sensors have?

      about 8 months ago
    • The Hybrid Shooter
      The Hybrid Shooter In reply to Dominic Ryan

      You're welcome, ISO 200 just increases noise in comparison with ISO 100 and it you need to use faster shutter speed and more dense ND filters. Dula ISO won't help much, because new BSI full frame sensors have more multiple base ISO settings that are being switched automatically.

      Thank you for very interesting video! I for example choose Fujifilm XT3, because I think APS-C format is a "golden mean" between FF and 4/3 systems. Fujifilm I choose because APS-C is a main format for them, and they put full scale of their efforts in this format. For other big vendors like Canon, Nikon and Sony APS-C line is secondary, and I think they do not care much for it.

      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.

      @The Hybrid Shooter Yes !! I would snap one up immediately should they make one although 1500 dollars Canadian would be about my price limit for a lens.

      Thank you, Sony should indeed start making more APS-C lenses, 16-55mm F2.8 OSS would be great.

      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.

      @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.

      @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.

      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.

      This Panasonic GH5 has 10 bit 4:2:2 recording and even DCI 400mbps bitrate and that is crazy. I always trying to look for a small camera having ability to record in 10 bit 422 not 8 bit 420. Even though that camera has MFT sensor but actually if you record a shot using the lens that equivalent to the full frame sensors it'll be the same. So, Idk what I just said before lol

      @The Hybrid Shooter   Yes! Thanks to the smaller sensor that we don't have to worry about overheating and 30 minutes limitation too. I was wondering that should I buy it and sell my Sony a6300? Or buy the speedbooster for a6300 and buy the external recorder even though I can't have that 10 bit. It's a really hard choice for me

      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.

      What did you choose eventually? I had the same thought but eventually chose to stick with Olympus, partially for peace of mind but also because when I got the Leica 12-60 I was so mind blown by the quality of even casual pictures that I thought there's no need to change at all.
      I'm glad Olympus came out with the EM5 MkIII, I can't wait to be able to afford it!

      @The Hybrid Shooter In some cases the M43 exceed the capabilities of the larger sensor cameras, like 4k and 6k record time, they are only limited by your storage and power on something like a GH5, while the full frame cameras overheat after at best half an hour.

      To emulate a 2.0 on a FF on a APS-C all you need a 1.4 plausible in the "real life". See and agree somewhat agree on what you are saying but each needs to evaluate how much of that ff look they really need-want.

      Finally, a level-headed video on sensor sizes. My vote is for MFT because it's by far the best balance between large and small sensors. If you're being paid to shoot portraits, you will probably prefer full-frame. If you're shooting video, there are huge advantages to smaller sensors that make them more useful. The BMPCC 4K is a highly anticipated and recently released MFT camera designed exclusively for professional video work; Blackmagic did not choose MFT for no reason. Camcorders have sensors on par with point-and-shoot cameras because the advantages of smaller sensors are very compelling for video-only devices. All that said, there are some video advantages to APS-C and FF systems, particularly in the shallow depth of field department. It's important to fully understand your tools and choose the right one. In the end, the old truism stands: a good craftsman blames himself; only a poor craftsman blames his tools.

      Good video. But I have to ask, what is the full frame look? What does that mean? What is the medium format look? Lol. Sensor size has absolutely nothing to do with DOF. As a matter of fact, if you want, Bokeh, or blurry background, you buy the camera with a smaller sensor since it’s smaller pixel pitch creates a more focused circle of confusion. Honestly, it doesn’t matter the size of the sensor, it’s more about how the light is captured and then processed. The only advantage to full frame is having not to do all the extra mathematics to figure out what a 35mm is on an APS-C body.
