If you want to learn about the real history of the digital camera sensor size wars, then you probably should watch a different video. But if you want to have a bit of laugh while seeing how far sensors have come over the years, then this video from Camera Conspiracies may just be for you.

There are much bigger questions than whether micro four thirds sensors can stack up with full frame. The sensor size war has a dark side that no one is talking about. Let us discuss.

If you haven’t seen the Camera Conspiracies channel before, this video is in line with just about everything else posted there. A hint of truth with a lot of conspiracy parody and a fair amount of profanity (so be careful who’s around when you watch this).

It’s an amusing look at how sensor size has changed and grown over the years.

If you’re after a slightly more serious perspective on sensor size, have a look at this and this instead.
