But there’s much, much more on this site:

This site began in 2011, after I’d been using m4/3 cameras in my photography work for two years. Since then, I’ve expanded it to its current form, where it covers the entire mirrorless camera marketplace in a way no other site does. 

Don't be fooled by the simple look of this site: it's filled with articles, reviews, data, and more, with even more coming in the future. The usual landing page you'd want to bookmark is the News/Views page, but you can also get a complete list of recently published articles on this and the other bythom sites by just going to www.bythom.com.

Help me improve this site. If you find incorrect or incomplete information, let me know. Fill out the form on the Contact page or use the email contact at the bottom of this page to let me know what you found.

The sensors are large. So are the possibilities.
