Crop, full frame, and medium format, can you tell the difference?


Here’s an 11-minute video in which landscape photographer Thomas Heaton looks at how much the camera you shoot with really matters for the vast majority of viewers. Given the opportunity to try the Canon M5 and Fujifilm GFX 50S, Heaton pits them against his trusty Canon 5D Mark IV.

The Canon M5 is an APS-C sensor mirrorless camera that costs ~$900, the Canon 5D Mark IV is a full-frame DSLR that costs ~$3,300, and the Fujifilm GFX 50S is a medium format mirrorless camera that costs ~$6,500.

With most people viewing photos in a low resolution online, such as on social media, the potential of high-resolution monster cameras is not properly realized these days. In the video, Heaton shares an image from each camera, but without pixel-peeping at high resolution, it’s impossible to know which camera shot which image.
