    Awesome stuff. I like the diagram below.

    But how do I know in video cameras like Sony NX70P, Sony VG-20 and Canon XA10, what are their image sensor size ?

    Thanks

    I'm not a close follower of videography, but according to google your options have the following sensor sizes:

    Sony NX70P: 1/2.88" sensor
    Canon XA10: 1/3" CMOS Sensor
    Sony VG20: APS-C sensor

    In theory the VG20 should offer superior image quality with better dynamic range and low image noise. However reviews seem to suggest that the unit offers poor value for money in terms of features.

    Actually modern day cameras with liveview offer very good alternatives to dedicated video cameras. In fact the 5D Mark II has secured quite a reputation amongst amateur videographers as an extremely good full-frame video camera that offers very good value for the features within.

    It may be that the video camera and the DSLR are both slated for extinction in the medium to long term - just like film has now been on the endangered list for some years now.

    i always get a good laugh at your stance on death to DSLRs and full-fledged video cams...

    and also, i did notice that there was one review that said exactly what you said, and that was in comparison with Video DSLRs.

    Well, my comments on the DSLR are just based on observation. What can DSLRs do that mirrorless cameras can't? It wasn't so long ago that film SLRs were the only thing available. The DSLR has lasted us about 20 years or so since Kodak made the first one in 1991 I think. Film exists but only amongst devotees. DSLRs will also exist for a long time but may not stay mainstream.

    As for video cams. Well, some of the currently famous youtube personalities seem to prefer the video feature on the 5D Mark II. So that's my only basis. I don't know how good the video features of the Sony NEX 5N are, or how it compares with a dedicated video cam, but comparing the same feature on different genres of devices is fine by me. I'm assuming it's a matter of time before still cameras become one with good video capture.

    In my opinion when you will go to buy camera you should keep one thing in your mind that your first priority must be mega pixel. If your camera pixel is good then the result of photo will be good. And in my opinion Resolution is not a big matter.

    WTF? Sorry for the language...

    You mean a (say) 46MP APS-C sensored camera would produce better result than a 24MP FF sensor camera? Seriously man... what are you smoking?

    And why do you want a big MP camera when resolution is not a big matter? Geez...
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
