Re: It's The Sensor Size That Counts
Sony does a great job with their sensors. In fact their sensors are in Nikon DSLR's. I've owned a few Sony digital cameras including the RX100 which was really a great camera to use. Now if only they would put an APS-C in one! I cannot justify buying the RX1 full frame because the cost is too high, but i think an APS-C would really make this camera astonishing.

You are right about the sensors on the smartphones getting better. I have an iPhone 6+ and the camera is really good. Very useful when i don't have my X100S with me-but certainly not a substitute.

Re: It's The Sensor Size That Counts
"The quality always is related to the size of the sensor, not the amount of pixels."

Agreed! I have been a SLR user for many years and nothing compares to the quality of a dedicated camera with good sensor and optics.

But smartphone sensors have recently evolved significantly, providing a decent image capture. The Exmor RS series are really impressive, and Sony makes more money selling sensors than smartphones.

It's The Sensor Size That Counts
Smartphone cameras have pretty much destroyed the low end digicam market because of their much improved picture quality. But to truly get top quality pictures, you will need to get a camera with a large sensor, something that is not avaialble in a smartphone. The large sensors are the 1" and APS-C sensors which are in the high end digital cameras. The top camera companies recognize this and are offering fairly compact cameras with these large sensors. They make a huge difference in detail, low light photography and getting the truly memorable pictures. The quality always is related to the size of the sensor, not the amount of pixels.
