    I need empowerment. I need thunderbolts. This is a winner.

    The video said it was a 4/3 sensor but isn’t that different from Super 16? which is what the specs on their website suggest.

    According to Abel Cine’s FOV calculator http://www.abelcine.com/fov/ Super 16mm is 11.9mm x 6.7mm and the AF100′s Micro 4/3rd sensor is 17.8mm x 10mm.

    Blackmagic has stated their sensor is 15.81mm x 8.88mm. So it’s quite a bit larger than S16, and slightly smaller than M4/3. Obviously there is a difference in crop factor, but I’d say that M4/3 is a reasonably close comparison for general discussion of the camera.
