Canon 300D vs Fujifilm S1500 Sensor Comparison

Often, it can be difficult to visualise the contrast between sensor measurements merely by reading a spec sheet. The visual here should offer you a clearer sense of the sensor sizes in the 300D and S1500.

As you can see, both cameras provide different megapixel count and different sensor measurements. The 300D having a larger sensor will make shooting shallower depth of field less difficult and the Fujifilm S1500 will offer you more detail having an extra 4 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also help you crop pics more aggressively. The older 300D is going to be behind with regard to sensor technology.
