Sensor performance: Canon ever further behind

9 Mar

As an update to my recent post about Micro Four Thirds catching up to Canon, here’s how Sony is making them look bad with an even smaller sensor in the RX10:

Even the Sony RX10 beats the 70D across the board except for low-light performance.

Even the Sony RX10 beats the Canon 70D across the board – except for low-light performance.

Given the crop factor of the 70D (1.6) vs. the RX10 (3), the low-light performance of the 70D should be closer to 3.5 times as good (it’s a square law).

Canon have clearly placed a large bet on the success of their dual pixel autofocus technology. They’re currently still feeding on the past reputation of the brand, but how long will that meal last?
