Sensor size comparison with a film slide

The sensor diagonal measures 43.3mm, which gives rise to a format factor (or crop factor) of 1.0. Therefore, the Panasonic S1R is a full-frame camera, as its sensor size corresponds to that of a traditional 35mm film slide or negative.

Sensor specs and performance

The table below compares the sensor specs of the Panasonic S1R to those of several similar cameras. The reported DXO values are indicators of the sensor's imaging quality (higher is better), covering color depth (DXO Portrait), dynamic range (DXO Landscape), and high-ISO noise (DXO Sports). Larger sensor cameras tend to outperform cameras of the same generation that are equipped with a smaller imager. On the other hand, larger sensors are more expensive and require bigger and heavier lenses than smaller light receptors.
