Sony should drop "APS-C". Here's why.
Oct 13, 2011

I always felt that APS-C has a negative connotation to it. It makes people feel like they have something less than full frame. With video and photography being integrated in cameras such as the Sony Nex 7, it's time to drop that term and replace it with what they refer to that size sensor in film - Super35. An APS-C sensor is the same size as a Super35 sensor, and calling it that makes it feel like an alternative to full frame rather than something less than full frame. I choose the Sony NEX 7 over full frame because I want smaller, lighter systems. I didn't choose it because I couldn't afford full frame and it was a secondary, or backup option to fit my budget. Sony needs to scrap all references to APS-C and replace it with Super35. Anyone else agree?
