If that 12 megapixel is the actual resolution and isn't a typo, I'd much
rather carry my Olympus TG-4.

while it may be easier to carry, it has much smaller pixels, therefore
much higher noise.

I wonder if you can get a selfie stick for it.


Sure. Here's a prototype waitng for the camera to be mounted:

I would like to se the DxOmark scores for that sensor...

the scores will depend how much dxomark is paid, if they are at all.

Nahh... I should have said graphs 'cause I don't care for "scores" of
any kind either. Anyways, they are merely recycling the data that they
harvest for their software.

"Much" higher noise? I seriously doubt it. S/N has more parameters than
just pixel size.

yes.

then you don't understand physics.

just pixel size.


so what?

the dominant factor for noise is pixel size. larger pixels collect more
light. basic physics.

the 12mp 8x10 camera has 75 micron pixels. those are *huge*. its base
iso is 2100, versus a base iso of 100-200 on a typical slr.

Size-Comparison-x800.jpeg

size matters. full frame sensors have about a stop less noise than crop
sensors, which have about a stop less noise than micro 4/3rds, which
have a lot less noise than compact cameras and certainly cellphone
cameras, which have tiny sensors and very aggressive noise reduction
(which works fairly well, but not without compromise).

I stated the reasons for that opinion in that that you snipped. You're
dead wrong, of course! :-ppp
