Size Matters!

With Alister Chapman

In recent years there has been a move from traditional sized 1/2” and 2/3” sensor to larger super 35mm sensors for many types of video production, not just digital cinema. But is this always the best way to go? Large sensors are certainly fashionable but are they right for you and the types of productions you produce? In this seminar we will look at:

  • The history of video camera sensor sizes.
  • Where do the different sizes come from.
  • Why the shift towards larger sensors?
  • The strengths of a larger sensor.
  • Why are zoom lens options so limited with larger sensors.
  • The strengths of a smaller sensor.
  • New sensor technologies that are narrowing the performance gap.
  • Thinking about how you shoot. If you shoot at f5.6 is there any point to a large sensor camera?
  • What can a small sensor camera do that a large sensor can’t?
