Micro APS
« on: July 09, 2011, 01:49:06 pm »

M43 success proves the public want small cameras with truly good image quality.
However, so far none of the companies involved in M43 has come with a camera without serious compromises. Every model lacks always an important feature.
Also, looking at sample comparisons between 4/3 and APS, the second always wins by a notch and dusting the first one at high ISO's. Good high ISO performance in this type of camera is very important because they are often used under low light circumstances given the reason of their existence.

Since M43's downsizing is limited by the size of the lens, it's physically impossible to produce a pocketable interchangeable lens model, leaving M43 technology as optimal for light non-intimidating easy to carry cameras but certainly not for the pocket.
According to my empirical calculations, a mirror-less version of the APS technology would yield an interchangeable lens system very close in bulk, weight and stealth to M43 but with the huge advantages of a sensor double the size.

I don't understand why there were a lot of small pocket-able 35mm film cameras but for a digital sensor the problem is so difficult?

"Is that a GH2 in your pocket or you're just happy to see me?"  :D :D :D

And... did you end buying a Sony NEX, a Ricoh GRX with the right module, or a Samsung NX?

None of course. That's what I'm saying. All lack important features (at least for me and many others). What did  you buy? Please tell us a little bit what you like best and what annoys you.
