You ever wonder how an iPhone 4S compares to larger, more dedicated cameras? Now you can find out. There is a website called SensorSize. It’s a service that compares the sensor sizes of many popular cameras and puts them on a small graph giving you a clear visual of how they compare in size.
The comparison above, pulled up by the folks at Gizmodo, shows the iPhone 4S sensor compares to a Cannon PowerShot S100 and a Canon EOS 5D Mark III Full Frame. For someone like myself who doesn’t know jack about cameras, all it means to me me is that one is a phone camera, the other is the kind you buy at Walmart for a couple hundred bucks and the third one is like the kind that legit photographers use. Yup. That’s how I classify cameras.
Either way, you can check out SensorSize, and probably draw some better comparisons than I can by hitting this link: SensorSize
