Full Frame vs Micro 4:3 – Where It Matters Most

In this video, we’re putting two different sensor sizes to the ultimate test to see if it really makes a difference where it matters most. We’re using two pro-grade cameras – the Canon 5D mark IV and the Olympus OMD EM-1. The Canon has a full frame sensor, whereas the Olympus has a micro 4:3 sensor and 10 million pixels less! We want to find out if this really matters when it comes to a professional job.

Watch how we use both cameras to take documentary shots for an exhibition, then go to the print lab to see if a professional printer could tell which camera has been used for each picture.
