Big horizontal comment on Digital Micro-single camera: frame Theory is a thing of the past.

[PConline review] for digital cameras, people think of smartphones the most. In the past, I couldn't imagine why the mobile phone could be side by side with the camera, but the new era does tell us that the mobile phone is really easy to use. However, for many friends who have requirements for picture quality, digital cameras have always been an indispensable and important category, especially the micro-single cameras which have been very popular in the past two years. Let's take a look at these popular microcameras and see how different brands and models are from the dimensions that people care about most.

A long time ago, people always said that when you buy a camera, you only buy a larger picture, and no matter how good the price of a small picture is, you don't think about it. But in fact, anyone who knows about cameras knows that pictures are never the only criterion for judging whether a digital camera is good or not. In fact, there are only four points that people most like to pay attention to-pixels, continuous shooting, weight, and price.

Horizontal review catalogue:


Why is the picture not the main reference point?


Review details of each dimension:

1. Pixel value comparison.

2. Comparison of continuous shooting speed.

3. Weight comparison.

4. Price comparison.

5. Total score and conclusion.

The picture is actually what we call the size of the sensor area. This thing is actually a clich é in the industry, but it is so strange to friends who don't know anything about cameras. First of all, let's take a look at the following classic picture comparison.

We don't say anything else, but we just want to tell you that at present, most mainstream digital cameras are full-frame and APS-C pictures, with a full-frame sensor size of about 36 x 24mm, and then a APS-C of about 22.7x15.5mm. Our most common smartphones are mainly 1max 2.7in or 1max 2.3in. The sensor mainly absorbs photon information, so the irrefutable thing is that the larger the area, the better the picture quality. But why should I say that the picture is not the only measure? The reason is that they are generally not portable. If it is not portable, it directly leads to poor sales.

As mentioned just now, if we don't look at the picture, we can actually look at other aspects of the camera. Appearance, focusing performance, whether to support high-specification video shooting and so on. And I don't think it's particularly important. The main points that people care about are pixels, continuous shots, weight and price.

1. Pixel value comparison.

The first is the pixels. Pixel should be a technical term that we know most. It can be understood simply that high pixel means fine picture.

Nikon Z 7 full-frame micro-single 45.75 million pixel expressive force is amazing.

On this basis, the full-frame camera is absolutely dominant, and full-frame plus high-pixel, that is the best configuration. At this point, Nikon's full-picture micro-single Z7, as well as Sony's great hero A7R II are very good.

2. Continuous shooting comparison.

The second point is continuous shooting, which is actually not a particularly important performance point, but it is very important at a critical time. The most common application scenes are shooting fast-moving animals, shooting sports and so on. At this point, Fuji's X-T3 is definitely a good speed machine.

Fuji X-T3 's excellent picture capture ability.

It can soar to 30 shots per second with 16 million pixels trimmed, far more than other cameras. Even if it is not cropped, there are 11 consecutive shots per second. At this point, however, many full-frame cameras are stretched, but the Sony A7 III can reach 10 frames per second, which is very good.

3. Weight comparison.

Weight is an extremely important dimension in this era, because more and more people begin to hate heavy objects. So the portable camera has a great advantage in this respect.

Sony's A6000 is a camera made many years ago, but because it is really light in weight, many friends take a fancy to this point and buy it directly. And the whole picture will suffer a lot in this respect.

4. Price comparison.

Price is the most important reference point for buying cameras. There is no other, how much money, how much money to buy goods, this is an unalterable law.

Fuji's entry-level product X-A5 costs only more than 2, 000 yuan, which has an advantage in this respect. Similarly, the full-frame micro-order will naturally be much more expensive, and the ultra-high-pixel Nikon Z 7 costs nearly 20,000 yuan, which is unbearable to ordinary users, so it has no performance-to-price ratio to speak of.

5. Total score and conclusion.

After the horizontal evaluation of the above dimensions, the final score was the highest, and what was very surprising was that Sony's performance-to-price ratio of the dark horse A6000 was slightly higher than that of the dark horse a few years ago. Then there is the EOS M6 of Canon and the Xmuri T20 of the re-examination, followed by the X-A5 and the EOS M50 of Canon.

People think that the picture is the king's full-frame micro-single camera, basically in the back. Among the models on the list, the most expensive Nikon Z 7 actually ranks seventh, while Canon's only two full-frame specialties can only get 21 points. Sony's A7 II and A7 III, have lower overall scores for full-frame micro-singles. So on the whole, we can see such a trend, that is, people's high-performance cameras are often accompanied by the label of "high price", coupled with objective facts such as "expensive" and "heavy", it is difficult for today's consumers to like them. Lightweight and cheap cameras have an absolute advantage, even if you are an old product from a few years ago.
