Your 18-200mm zoom lens on FS100 is “25 – 280mm equivalent” (assuming a crop factor of 1.4). The Sony RX10M4 is just about perfect with its 1″ sensor, BSI-CMOS, f2.8-4, .03 shutter speed, 314 auto-focus points, 24 fps, 24-600, normal close up focus only 3cm, RAW (I use photoshop) and its even environmentally sealed but still a bit beyond my $1200 budget. When we speak of “equivalent focal length in terms of full frame”, we’re only referring to the equivalent angle of view captured by the sensor (such as seen through the electronic viewfinder). Full-Resolution Example Image Made under Full-Moonlight, shot with 24-70mm f/2.8 at 70mm and f/2.8. Here’s my question: will a 200 mm image from a full frame size sensor be of the same quality as a 200 mm image that has been achieved through conversion or lens equivalence determination taken with APS C-size sensor camera? I considered APS-C and M4/3 but the zooms aren’t a comparable range all-in-one and I don’t want to get into switching lenses again. Thank you very much! Get a metabones adaptor for the A6000 and put the 24-105L on it giving me “okay” reach, or That is 2.7 divided by 1.5 = 1.8; and 1.8 times 7 = 12.6.]. Today, a reader “Su H @live.com.au” asked the following interesting question: The image harshness or color rendition should be fully adjustable in an editor. However, the Panasonic FZ1000 (2014, 29 oz, 25-400mm equiv, $800 at B&H) is a much better dollar value, especially with its essential built-in viewfinder (EVF). I typically first shoot a test shot on automatic Aperture-preferred priority, inspect the histogram, check any blinking highlight warnings, then compensate subsequent shots using Manual Exposure (or temporary Exposure Lock grabbed from the scene). Shoot the 18-300mm sharpest at f/5.6-f/8 as you zoom as shown here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/nikon/18-300mm-f3.5-5.6g-ed-vr-dx-af-s-nikkor/review/. I primarily use a Sony NEX 7 camera (24mp, APS-C size sensor, 14 oz body) mounted with 19-oz Sony 18-200mm lens (which is poor for macro but great for a variety of nature travel shots). Image stabilization technology reduces the effects of user hand shake and motion while taking pictures or recording videos. ArcSoft’s single camera solutions for smartphones are already embedded on huge amounts of smartphones shipped worldwide. The more detail you capture, possibly the less mysterious the subjects become. The EOS 7D Mark II (2014, 20mp) is slightly sharper than Mark I, but Sony A6500 or A6300 clearly beats both 7D cameras in resolving fine detail. 2. I’ve seen a couple of decent big lenses that use iPhone for viewfinder/camera brains so clip on back… any upcoming versions worthy of consideration to be truly portable for travel? Thanks for your question. If your shots are overexposed – close your aperture down (increase the f stop number) or if your shots are underexposed open it up (decrease the f stop numbers). My issue is I’m tired of carrying a big bag and swapping lenses when we travel or attend a school event. I currently use just 2 cameras: This is strictly for super zoom good light pictures. I expect that RX10’s catch-up in quality under dim light is due to superior light sensitivity of BSI sensor plus larger lens diameter gathering more light, 72mm versus 55mm. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! In its favor, RX10 helps make up the sensor size difference its more efficient BSI sensor design, sharper glass from edge-to-edge, and its lens with brightest aperture f/2.8 being two-thirds of a stop brighter than f/3.5 on your A6000. Also, for sensors having larger surface-area sizes, a given F stop (such as f/4) will have shallower depth of field, affecting image quality; for example portrait photographers and videographers may like very shallow depth of field with subjectively-attractive bokeh. Yearly advances of 2014-16 put the sweet spot for serious travel cameras between 1”-Type and APS-C size sensors. The pictures are too white or overexposed. I just couldn’t deal with hunting on long range focus and the output vs. the Nikon. I know the spec difference but will one provide better images with more easy? (Attaching a wider angle lens to a phone camera is unnecessary because stitching a Panorama is better.). The sensor captures the image; ... (âunderexposedâ), but that you also donât collect too much (âoverexposedâ). Photo & Video Transfer Expand. What should do if the photo is overexposed or underexposed? The “best” travel camera is the one that you are willing to carry. The middle photo is 2 f/stops overexposed and the one on the right is 2 f/stops underexposed. I lost my zs100, and am now contemplating between rx100 3, and Ricoh gr ii. Example: My current kit is a Nikon P900 with its massive zoom and superb IS. Here’s the calculation: Top smartphone cameras can potentially make good 18-inch prints and share publishable pictures. I bit too heavy even carrying two lenses. As I’m primarily a landscape stills photographer, I prefer the extra depth of field of sensors smaller than full frame (such as 1″ type sensor), especially good for macro/close focus and great portability. I like to “pixel-peep” a side-by-side comparison of two different cameras capturing the same subject under same lighting conditions in the field. Surprisingly little noise affects RX10’s image quality at high ISO 6400 in dim light. The number of megapixels is much less important than the following: 1. That was probably the best article that explained sensor size and the zoom factor I have read (or could even find that pertained to that subject). I’ll play with some of the internal settings as well as try some side by side shots with my current Nikon and the new Sony in Lightroom and see if I can come up with something I like and save that template. Tom responded: Knowing the noise characteristics of a digital camera can help avoid any image quality surprises. The bigger issue is, I’m a small person and it weighs 2.4# as compared to my ultra-compact at 1/2# to grab and go. In the studio tests below, RX10 III’s image quality falls somewhere between the Mark I and Mark II models of a Canon 7D. I formerly shot Nikon D5000 and Sony NEX-7 & A6300 all with 18-200 lens. White Balance (Color Balance) is easily adjustable after shooting raw files, but tonal editing often skews colors oddly in JPEG. The 72mm lens is way bigger than my A-mount lenses that are 55mm & adding $1k lenses to the $3k A99 is more camera than I need. I have a a6000 with the 16-50 kit lens, and recently purchased a RX10 I (due to the fact that a 24-200mm was enough for me and I had read great things about the RX10). The Sony A99 II body has 5-Axis Sensor-Shift Stabilization, so even legacy A-Mount glass can be image stabilized for both for stills and video. However, a lens with fast maximum aperture (such as f/2.4) and larger diameter glass (such as 72mm) with high quality can sometimes beat larger-sensor cameras, as with my 25x zoom Sony RX10 III with 1″ sensor beating the 11x zoom lens on a flagship APS-C camera at most zoom and ISO settings (such as on my Sony A6300, or on 11x-15x zooms on Nikon or Canon DSLRs), especially at telephoto, despite RX10’s smaller 20 megapixels versus 24 mp on APS-C. Due to many factors, one-on-one field tests under constant conditions are required to distinguish camera quality (or else use the above guidelines). Image quality sometimes roughly coincides with megapixel count for a given physical sensor size, for example: My Samsung Galaxy S6 and Note 5 smartphones with identical 16 megapixel cameras capture images superior to rival Apple iPhone 6s which has 12mp, which in turn is superior to the 8mp camera in earlier iPhone 6. I purchased a DSC-RX10M3 for the solar eclipse and got some solid pics using auto and -3 EV; however, everyday pics were not as colorful as my Nikon (Sony images seemed rather harsh vs. Nikon or it could be the sensor size?). I currently have a Canon 6D and Sony A6000. Our licensed algorithms are thoroughly optimized to fit the specifications of phone SoC brands such as Qualcomm, MediaTek, Samsung, and Spreadtrum. From what I hear (and have been shooting since 2013) they take pretty good pictures too. Those 1 inch go from F2.8 to 4.5 in telemode. $1300 (plus Micro Four Thirds lenses) is “cheap enough to take a chance on” for professional video production. In historical perspective, a Sony RX10M4 makes prints far bigger and sharper than my full-frame 35mm film cameras used 1978-2004. I didn’t test night photos, but at ISO 100 on a tripod using optimal aperture, you may not notice a huge difference. I use a Sony NEX 6 APS-C sensor size. By default, all cameras underexpose scenes where white tones (such as snow) predominate, and overexpose highlights in scenes where black tones predominate. The histogram will instantly reveal the situation: a heavy concentration at the left side of the graph means the image is underexposed and you've lost detail in the shadow areas; a heavy concentration at the right means your highlights may be blown out. When I make a aftermovie I can slowdown my footage to 50% and this give me great results. Your article does a great job of explaining the difference between the zoom and the 1″ and APS-C sensors and that you recommend the Sony for the full features even with the smaller sensor. For Travel would I be better off buying Rx10, Panasonic Fz 2500 or a Canon D7 with 28-105 lens? …The camera i am using now is an Insignia 12 mp. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Stopping down further with f/numbers larger than this increases depth of field, but worsens diffraction through the smaller pupil opening (such as at f/11-f/16 on 1″ sensor or f/22 on APS-C), noticeably softening detail. Or if it must fit in a pocket, then try the Panasonic ZS100. But the macro advantages of small-sensor cameras can diminish in dim light or when shooting at ISO higher than 800. I could go a bit over budget. I always shoot raw format and edit every image. Finer control and adjustment potential. It is also a 1″ sensor vs. the APS-C on the Nikon. Overexposed or Underexposed. This is not always the case in the photochemical world of film photography. The 18-300 only reaches from 27-450mm equivalent, a 17x zoom, whereas RX10 iv reaches angles of view from 24-600mm equivalent, an impressive 25x zoom, remarkably sharp throughout, considering its portability. – By the way, for just $100 more than Ricoh GR (and twice the weight), instead of a pocketable camera, you could upgrade to a much superior Sony A6000 with 16-50mm Lens (2014, 12 oz + 4 oz 24-75mm equiv zoom, 24mp APS-C) with truly Fast Hybrid Autofocus. I sell my photographs , and people do buy my pictures , but I would like to further improve. which means that it actually zooms from 4.3mm focal length (at wide angle) to 215 mm (at longest telephoto), with brightest aperture ranging from f/2.8 to f/6.3 as you zoom. I do it for my GoPro already (there is a preset, but it still needs lots of work), so should be pretty easy to do for a higher-end camera. Its EVF and articulating screen are essential! Let’s put this in perspective: huge effective billboards can be printed from small 3-megapixel cameras (read my article). Image stabilization technology reduces the effects of user hand shake and motion while taking pictures or recording videos. I also have an older 10mp version that is better in low light. When you see those archaic “inch” size labels, instead look up the actual length and width in millimeters reported in the specifications for each camera: * Crop Factor: Note that a “full frame 35mm” sensor/film size (about 36 x 24 mm) is a common standard for comparison, having a diagonal field of view crop factor of 1.0. In general, the light capturing ability would depend on the pixel size rather than the sensor size? Its larger lens diameter gathering more light also helps in this comparison (72mm filter size of RX10 III versus 67mm SEL18200 on A6300). [Interestingly, evolution also designed human eyes in quick and dirty fashion with wiring (blood supply) partially blocking the light sensing retina tissue, like most sensors before BSI design. My requirements are: Variangle Screen / f1.4 – f 2 / 1 cm NFD up to 2 cm for high macro pics / large sensor – the bigger the better / full manual controls / pref ISO 80 or 100. Depending upon your desired “large sensor size,” due to physics, the requirements that you listed may not exist within a single given camera. Sony A99 II body weighs a hefty 30 ounces, plus bulky full-frame lenses add at least 30-40 ounces, making an overly hefty kit for travel, compared to the world’s most versatile camera, the 37-oz Sony RX10iv. For example, see my Calypso Orchids (above); and also the Nevada flower macro shot (cropped to 1500 x 1000 pixels, but presented on the web at 800 pixels wide) in my article on Sony RX100. Rather than tacking lenses onto the iPhone, I would recommend investing in a pocketable Panasonic ZS100 (or larger camera like Sony RX10iv, since your interest in the huge A99 shows admiration of capturing high quality images). The following article graphs smartphone camera specs over the years: https://petapixel.com/2017/06/16/smartphone-cameras-improved-time/. 4. Here are the weights & zoom capabilities of your proposed systems: What are your views on Canon G3X ? For a given angle of view, cameras with larger sensors can achieve a shallower depth of field than smaller sensors, a feature which movie makers and portrait photographers like to use for blurring the background (at brightest aperture setting, smallest F number value) to draw more attention to the focused subject. To those of you who know lenses, this wide-open tele shot should say it all about the lens. Compared to RX10III, the FZ2500 saves 4 ounces, focuses a bit faster, and builds in an ND filter, but as a nature-travel photographer, I would rather have the superior lens quality (half stop advantage & superior glass) and further zoom reach of RX10III. This was a perfect article for my needs. Why not use the horizontal angle? Again to show the effect this has on the image, here's another comparison. So manual focus with peaking function and zooming is also not easy. Hi Tom, The Canon EOS 7D (2009, 18mp APS-C) body alone weighs about 32 ounces with battery, plus a 13 oz Canon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 lens makes 45 ounces total, for a measly 3.75x zoom. Significantly affecting this comparison is that the Canon EOS 50D has 15 megapixels, whereas Canon EOS 5D cameras come in four different versions: 5D Mark I is 13 megapixels; 5D Mark II is 21 MP; 5D Mark III is 22 MP; and 5D Mark IV is 30 MP as released in 2016. Editing raw format fully recovers badly-exposed images − allowing you to “point and shoot” more freely than with JPEG. I’m just not sure I want to post-process images every time. As of 2018, 1-inch Type sensors optimize the size of a serious travel camera. But as so many variables go into image quality, rather than theorizing which might be better, it’s best to compare directly camera vs camera results under identical conditions in the field. For starburst effects, I suggest getting a star filter (screw-on or handheld square glass) and shooting RX10 at its optimal f/4 (to gather 16 times as much light for better quality than at f/16, minus any losses from the star filter). I would be eternally grateful if someone can answer this for me: The A7S has a Full-Frame 12 MP sensor, while the new BlackMagic 4K Pocket Cinema Camera has a M4/3 sensor, but its only 8 MP. I’ve done several tests between a6000 with kit lens and the RX10, expecting the RX10 to beat the kit lens of the a6000. When an image is overexposed, information in the brighter part of the image will be lost; likewise, when an image is underexposed information in the dark parts of the image will be lost. Menus behave the same on both EVF and LCD on Sony, but differ in complex ways on D7500, making D7500 harder to remember how to use. Such a lens doesn’t exist for Sony e-mount. The 1 inch sensor camcorders. The head of each tiny purple flower blossom was only about 1 or 2 cm high. The FZ1000 II leaps in quality over your Panasonic DMC-ZS10 pocketable camera. So I usually use the above camera-specific settings for sharpest landscape photography. In principle, you might expect a slightly sharper image on an APS-C sensor when using the sweet spot of a lens designed for a full frame (which has a larger imaging circle), but results actually vary, especially when using older film-optimized lenses. Both Sony RX100 ver III and Ricoh GR flash have an impressively fast synch speed of 1/2000 sec. High kVp produces a low-contrast image and low kVp produces a high-contrast image. As sensor sensitivity improved in later years around 2013-2016, megapixel count again became relevant for making larger, sharper prints in pocket cameras (especially for cameras using new Sony 1-inch Type 20mp sensors). Launched in September 2019, the Nokia 7.2 is the latest mid-range smartphone from the Finnish telecommunications giant. [Full-frame refers to a sensor measuring about 36x24mm, the size of traditional 35mm still film. A good viewfinder is crucial for photography outdoors in bright sunlight where reflections often obscure LCD screens. But larger cameras zoom better, perform better in dim light, and can make bigger prints. But for equivalent viewing angles wider than 1000mm, the RX10M4 creates sharper images than P1000, and weighs 25% less (37 oz vs 50 oz). So I need a 300mm lens? Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, preview: highlights are often completely overexposed in high-contrast scenes and high target exposures can make faces look a little washed out. The starburst at f/16 on my RX10iii is fun to play with, but it makes images extremely soft focus, which lends a more romantic appearance, when appropriate for my intentions for the scene. Control brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, sharpness, gamma, white balance, and more. Sony implies that this “Clear Image Zoom” may beat the 2x cropping and enlarging of a shot taken at 576mm.]. But I personally prefer a more versatile pocket camera with electronic viewfinder and image-stabilized zoom lens such as Sony RX100 version III ($800 at B&H). “Equivalent aperture” is proportional to diagonal crop factor. Good question, as standard sensor sizes of video camcorders differ from still cameras. You would need to upgrade to a Galaxy S6 or Note5 to get 4k video (3840×2160 pixels). For a non-DSLR camera that is good for macro of small subjects, check out the following photographer’s gear: BeingMark.com — Surprisingly, Mark shoots most of his striking macro photos of tiny insects with an old Panasonic FZ50 (2006, 1.6 pounds, or 734 grams, with 1/1.8″-Type sensor, just 10 megapixels) with achromats (achromatic lenses) screwed onto filter threads. Thanks for allowing me to pick your brain. Image quality is strongly affected by light-gathering area (sensor size) and sophistication (most recent design) of the sensor, plus lens quality and its light-collecting diameter. This is calculated as follows: How USEFUL is that? Obviously when you have to increase it, the quality goes down, much more severally than in the A6000 (so the RX10 is not valid for milky ways or similar nighty shots). Check other review sites analyzing a camera’s telephoto in addition to standard lens. In the past, Always shot In auto. Thanks a lot in advance ! Required fields are marked *. The pictures are too white or overexposed. Picture Controls and Image Settings. But lens manufacturers have a good reason for reporting lens angle of view as a diagonal measurement when their lenses are used on sensors with different aspect ratios, such as 3:2 and 4:3. Actually, I tried to find a good lense for the A6000, but as the only option that seems to beat the kit lens in the prohibitive Zeiss 16-70 I though it it might be more suitable for me to get a good bridge camera as the RX10. Your own testing will be more definitive. With early DSLR cameras, many photographers were concerned about the loss of image quality or resolution by using a digital sensor with a light-gathering area smaller than 35mm film. I lose some zoom (I think the conversion works out to 17x vs. 24x on the Sony), the weight is comparable or less, 4K video (not as robust) and the APS-C sensor. — Panasonic FZ1000 (2014, 29 oz with 16x zoom lens, 1″ type sensor, 25-400mm equivalent). For example, my Sony RX10 III (37 oz) has a 1″-Type sensor, with 2.7 crop factor compared to full frame. – f/7.6 on full frame divided by 2.7 is f/2.8 on RX10 to get the same hole size, for same depth of field. Watch this video to see a sample of a quality photo! 2. With Sony RX10 III you get a sharp 25x zoom weighing just 37 ounces. Alternative: instead of using Canon G3X with its pricey add-on viewfinder, travel photographers may prefer upgrading to the following with only slightly higher price, size & weight: — $1430 at B&H for a great 31-ounce camera system: Provides smartphones with a complete solution for low-light photography and low-light video recording. At this moment the panasonic HC-X1 with 20x zoom looks interesting price/quality. 2. Get the Panasonic FZ2500 (this over the 1000 because I like the built in ND filter), or My experience has always been contrary to what most of “large sensor lovers” mention. The front lens of your Sony HX300 is labeled with the following numbers for the zoom’s brightest aperture and actual focal length: 2.8-6.3 / 4.3-215mm Hi John, thanks for your question about Ricoh GR (released in 2013, 8.64 oz with battery, 16mp, APS-C): The Ricoh GR is a very good specialty camera, generally beating its peers — pocketable cameras having a fast lens with a wide, fixed, non-zooming angle of view and large sensor. Use Backlight Compensation to balance underexposed areas without affecting overexposed areas. Do you ever hold the camera diagonally when taking photos? Sony achieves the better performance with a combination of 1-stop brighter lens aperture throughout the zoom range; high quality ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* optics; plus more-efficient stacked backside illumination (BSI) sensor technology (not yet available for Nikon APS-C). Image stabilization technology reduces the effects of user hand shake and motion while taking pictures or recording videos. Film can record light at more grazing angles than a digital sensor. The 24-240mm lens has poorer edge sharpness and is 1 stop slower. The only aspect in which RX10 bets the A6000 with the 16-50 is a bit the quality in wide apertures and close subjects (and of course the reach of that zoom) as well as the bokeh effects. Panorama stitching technology offers users a complete panorama experience for both front and rear-facing cameras geared towards both indoor and outdoor environments. The sensor is the same.
