An overview of the different sensor sizes in digital cameras. Simple explanations of crop sensors, full frame sensors and what that translates to in the real world.

 What do you want to know? #a9 $4500, available end of May 24MP, 20fps, 60fps for AF calculations. No blackout, I spied a small joystick nub on back and 200RAW Images buffer. #fb
