It's not actually a talk, Derek, just a written resource on the Club website.

When discussing different systems in terms of sensor size, it makes no sense for one person to say my 35mm camera is full frame, and for another to say my micro four thirds is also full frame (in the sense that it was designed as such) and a third person to say you're both wrong, my medium format is the defacto full frame. However when we discuss such matters (as if it is worthy of discussion) it is helpful to have a baseline, in a sense like the standard metre used in the SI system, it just happens that in photography the 35mm frame is used universally as the reference. Perhaps it should be adopted by the International System d'unites (SI).
I fully agree that 35mm makes a useful standard, I just wish a better term than 'full frame' was used.

Re: Mirrorless vs DSLR resource?

an interesting thread, had some lass download some of my photos from a bridge camera and whine that I was using auto focus when photographing some guys running around, some had the sun behind them and the others had the sun in front, so manual was a nice idea, but autofocus quicker and easier. the lass only has FF cameras as everything else are toys for kids...

went for m43 light weight, weather sealing, high burst rate and reasonably affordable camera and lenses

Indeed: Given that originally it was a cinematography term for fixing the gate to its maximum size when using 35mm film.

So much is made of having a "Full Frame" system and banging on about high ISO and lately low light capability, while overlooking the simple basics of what photography is...

Re: Mirrorless vs DSLR resource?

Getting rid of mechanical devices, such as the moving mirror, is generally a good idea but it is better if all moving parts are smaller and lighter. Thus, an MFT sensor can be moved more rapidly, to provide better stabilisation than can be achieved by FF. Similarly, the shutter components are smaller, so faster speeds are possible.
