Canon 300D vs Canon T8i Sensor Comparison

Usually, its tough to picture the gap between sensor sizes purely by reading through specs. The image below may provide you a much better sense of the sensor measurements in the 300D and T8i.

As you can plainly see, the two cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing albeit different resolution. You should count on the Canon T8i to give more detail with its extra 18 Megapixels. Higher resolution will make it easier to crop photographs far more aggressively. The more aged 300D is going to be disadvantaged in sensor technology.
