Canon 700D vs Nikon S9100 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it's difficult to picture the contrast in sensor sizes only by going through a spec sheet. The picture below might offer you a much better sense of the sensor sizing in the 700D and S9100.

Clearly, each of these cameras posses different megapixels and different sensor sizes. The 700D due to its larger sensor is going to make shooting shallow DOF less difficult and the Canon 700D will show extra detail utilizing its extra 6MP. Greater resolution will also enable you to crop pics somewhat more aggressively. The newer 700D should have an advantage in sensor technology.
