Over and over again I have read that small sensor cameras cannot be compared with cameras with sensors several times larger.

I will show you 2 pictures.

They were not shot at the same time but they are pictures of the same place.

One is taken with 1/2.3 sensor.

the other taken with a sensor several times larger.

Look here

I don't know where those images came from, (no EXIF), but both of those images you provided are poor, and nothing like I get with my Nikon V1, which is better than any of the tiny 1/2.3 sensor sensor cameras I have ever used.

Posts like yours are suspect, so I challenge you to match the IQ of this scene I shot myself with a Nikon V1 with one of your own, (with EXIF included), taken with a 1/2.3 sensor camera.

(Hint: Use the loupe feature on the edges of the image to check the impressive sharpness across the frame and the street sign in the center bottom!)



Good luck!

Usually only dishonest people doubt of the honesty of others.

I am not saying the poster is dishonest . What I am saying is that he has no reason to doubt my honesty.

I posted several V1 pictures in the N1 message board.

I posted in that board a picture of my camera and bag.

What does jonikon want more in order to proof I am honest ?

( A  document from the US embassy in Portugal ? ).

Anyway .

Since jonikon has so  many doubts about my honesty ,  I did also took a picture of my V1 and in the background his post.
