A large sensor is one of the most significant factors in terms of providing good image quality. The larger area simply means that, compared lớn a smaller sensor camera, it will be exposed lớn more light during any exposure with the same settings (ISO, shutter speed & F-number). Và more light means a better signal-to-noise ratio.

To vày this, the table below shows it against its peers, showing the area of the sensor, the kích cỡ of the camera và the effective aperture of the camera. This last figure gives an idea of how much control over depth-of-field the camera will offer, by relating the aperture ranges back khổng lồ the 135 film standard.
