As to me: One Inch.
Kind regards, Herman
Even smaller: 1/2.3"
One pixel. On or Off. No shades of gray for me. :smile:
Seriously, mu43. I have smaller sensor cameras and like them very much, but mu43 is the sweet spot for me.
10" x 8"
small enough for a Ricoh GR compact case and good enough image quality like a Merrill Foveon or Fuji X sensor
for the bulk of my photography, I prefer APS-C. For tele and macro, I prefer 1 inch or 1/2.3
I'm always striving for / dreaming of wide angle and shallow DOF, so for me, the larger the sensor the better - or a smaller sensor with super fast lens. Unfortunately both large sensor nor super fast lens tend to make for large cameras/lenses, and that's contrary to my other wish: a camera that basically disappears when I'm not using it.
I think the rumored sony 2/3" type curved sensor with a lens of ~21mm f/3 equivalent might meet my minimum criteria for DOF control, and it's obviously very small (smartphone), so if the lens is right, there's no real need for me to have a larger sensor than that. Still, if I were to design a camera/lens combo myself, it'd probably be APS-C at least.
Most full 35mm size for me now days. Either digital Nikon FX or Film!
