Canon 300D vs Canon A3300 IS Sensor Comparison

Usually, it is very hard to see the gap in sensor sizes merely by going through specifications. The image here will provide you a clearer sense of the sensor sizing in the 300D and A3300 IS.

To sum up, each of these cameras come with different resolutions and different sensor sizes. The 300D using its larger sensor will make shooting shallower DOF easier and the Canon A3300 IS will provide greater detail using its extra 10 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also let you crop photos a good deal more aggressively. The more aged 300D will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor tech.
