My FF is 1 to 2 stops better than my APSC cameras.

I have a Nikon V1, 1" sensor" and it is good in day light but the S/N deteriorates if the light is not good.


A V1? No wonder your other cameras have better S/N. I have a J1 and basically, it sucks compared to my RX100s.

As always, comparing sensor size in general is pointless. Ya gotta be specific. And just to bore you silly because it's been said before, post-processing software has come a long way too. I have a 13x19 print on the wall made from a Panasonic ZS70 (1/2.3 sensor) cropped image and after NR and sharpening it looks just fine. Could it be better? Probably, but you'd have to get nose oil on it to see.

I think I'd like to see a test/comparison among various high-quality cameras of various sensor sizes with output to screen and print with no limit on post-processing to see just where the differences end up. Big diff, little diff, no diff, whatever. It wouldn't stop the controversy, but it would be interesting.
