A New Look at Sensor Size

Sensor Sizes Compared

Below I have posted three charts and a table. The first chart compares cameras with APSC size sensors or smaller, in this chart, I assume the APSC sensor is 100% and show how the others compare in terms of the percentage of square mm. The second chart compares full frame cameras sensors to smaller camera sensors assuming the full frame is 100%. The third chart follows the same format but starts with medium format cameras at 100%. The table below the charts has more specific information about cameras sensors, their size and their pixel pitch which has a big impact on image quality (IQ).
For more information on pixel pitch check out my previous post titled “The Great Megapixel Con.”
