Full-frame cameras have larger sensors and are therefore capable of capturing more light than their smaller-sensor counterparts, which minimizes unwanted noise. For instance, Micro Four Thirds cameras don’t perform well under low-light conditions where the ISO needs to be cranked up to, say, above 1600.
Is Olympus building a new Micro Four Thirds camera family?
