"1 inch" versus apsc sensor request
3

A user approached me saying he enjoyed my previous "Do you miss larger sensors" thread and asked for a continuation of the subject.

I am shocked the first thread even reached 149 replies, is the "1 inch sensor versus all others" debate really that exciting?

Nonetheless, i am not known for turning down requests, so there you go.

Did Nikon and Sony come up with the perfect sensor size in the Nikon 1/Sony rx series of cameras? Very possible.

This sensor size, along with the available manufacturing technology of recent years has made possible the creation of pretty unique cameras, small enough yet sufficiently versatile to tackle large sensor cameras, with some differences in DoF and such.

For me, they are placed in the middle of the size-quality scale, which means the 1 inch sensor cameras(paired with quality glass) give me good enough image quality at a size that i can easily accept to carry around with me. This is a big deal.

Anything else i missed in my previous discussion?
