Sensor Size

I found this site, Cambridge in Color, while shopping for a digital camera as a gift to Debby on her 50th. Sensor size has a huge impact on digital camera performance, especially when mixed with number of pixels. More pixels doesn’t mean better–the ratio between sensor size and pixels matters. Although, in general, it seems like sensor size is far more important than number of pixels.

My employer’s focus is on aerial photography, 2D and 3D, so I wanted to start a small series here to reflect or at least bullet point key things I learn (initially, just for myself so I don’t lose the reference material).
