Compare Mirrorless Cameras In Censor Frame

Years ago, the designers of Olympus suggested a concept that integrates the newest medical Evis Lucera Spectrum system – electronic endoscope into the digital camera. By doing this, the DSLRs can directly view finding on the LED screen and needn’t the reflector level pentaprism, and then shorten the size of DSLR. Since then, the application of endoscope gets into the area of cameras.

In 2008, Olympus and Panasonic announced a new Micro Four Thirds (M4/3) camera. Panasonic mass produce this DMG-G1 camera. For the reason of no reflector pentaprism, it is called as the Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera. After the first M43, almost all other manufactures conclude the Nikon, Sony, Samsung, Fuji, Ricoh, and Pentax develop their own products. The market is occupied by the product in a very short time. There is because that the advantage of it is very prominent: small size yet top quality.


We all know that censor is one of the most important components of a camera. Bigger censors always lead to better image quality. What’s more it also influences the produce difficulty of small lens and camera focusing time. The products on the market are mostly made with the APS-C (Sony Nex-7), 4/3 frame, 1 inch, and smaller one.


The flag ship of Sony Nex series, Pentax, Samsung, Fuji, and Canon are choosing the APS-C, which is the same size of entry level and pro-consumer DSLRS. This helps the Mirrorless has the same image performance as the DSLR. But it makes the lens more difficult in producing. The M43 cameras are using the 4/3 frame, which is the 60% of APSC. It makes the image quality is weaker than APSC ones especially at the high ISO and tolerance. Nikon’s 1 series products are choosing the 1 inch censor, which makes the image quality worse than the M43. The sacrifice exchanges for the fast focusing speed, small lens and camera body, low cost, etc. If you care about the image quality, ignore this 1 inch censor Mirrorless cameras.
