Canon R3 vs Hasselblad X2D Sensor Comparison

More often than not, it can be hard to picture the difference in sensor sizing merely by viewing specs. The visual below may offer you a much better sense of the sensor dimensions in the R3 and X2D.

All in all, both of the cameras come with different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The R3 due to its smaller sensor is going to make shooting shallower depth of field harder and the Hasselblad X2D will result in extra detail as a result of its extra 76 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also help you crop pictures a good deal more aggressively. The older R3 will be behind in sensor tech.
