3MOS vs. Micro 4/3 vs. APS-C vs. cropped FF vs…
How do different sizes and types of sensors impact on dynamic range?
For example, what difference would you expect to see in dynamic range of video shot with a prosumer camcorder like the Panasonic AC90 that has 1/4.7 type 3MOS image sensor compared to the AF100 that has 4/3-type image sensor?
Or how does dynamic range of video recorded with a Panasonic GH3 that also has a Micro 4/3 sensor compare with the Sony A99 that has a full frame sensor but apparently crops the FF image down to
? when image stabilizing is switched on in video mode?
No doubt this is like trying to compare Eva Peron and the Easter Bunny and also depends on a lot of other esoteric stuff like codec, bit rate, etc etc etc…. But at the end of the day blown highlights and blocked up shadows look the same whatever setup is used, right?
So does this mean the only way to figure out which one delivers the best dynamic range is to try everything?
