The Power of Micro Four Thirds

Posted Oct. 29th, 2023 by Daniel J. Cox

The power of Micro Four Thirds was highlighted recently in a blog post by a young man named James Rodkey titled Three Cheers for Micro Four Thirds. In his post, he does an exceptional job of explaining the pros and cons of the smaller MFT cameras when compared to so-called Full Frame cameras. He says, as I have said, MFT is not perfect, and there are a few minor situations in which larger cameras can be an advantage. But… for the vast number of shooting situations, the size, cost, and mobility of MFT outweigh its minor downsides. My love for Micro Four Thirds has been on full display on this blog since 2008

Happy to see others seeing the light

I feel like I should have written this post but since I didn’t, I’m thrilled somebody else has beaten me to the punch. He’s got great examples of tests by DXOMark on sensor scores. He also shows striking comparisons of the MFT cameras to the full frame cameras with similar lenses. The photo below is just one example that shows size, price and weight differences. More like this on James’ blog.

For anybody still on the fence about moving to the smaller, lighter, less expensive MFT system, his blog is a must-read.

    Excellent article! I started photography this year and I decided to rent a EM-10 mark iv. Best decision ever!
    The image quality is perfect and the camera is comfortable to use. At the beginning I started with a bit of nature photography.
    The last couple of weeks I have started with wildlife photography and I love it. I decided to get the lumix 100-300mm and again a perfect decision. As a beginner wildlife photographer I want to learn how to get close to animals and find a good perspective. There are so many cameras and it doesn’t make sense to break my head over this topic. At the end of the day I want to get outside into nature and experience the beauty of the natural world.

    I was just looking through some images on the panasonic website and that’s how I found you. I’m very happy to have found you. You’re an amazing photographer and I’m excited to look at your photos and read your blog.
