Canon SL3 vs Canon T6 Sensor Comparison

Quite often, it's difficult to envision the contrast in sensor sizes purely by researching technical specs. The image underneath will help offer you a more clear sense of the sensor measurements in the SL3 and T6.

As you have seen, each of the cameras provide the same sensor dimensions but not the same megapixels. You can expect to see the Canon SL3 to result in more detail because of its extra 6 Megapixels. Greater resolution will also make it easier to crop photos more aggressively. The younger SL3 will have a benefit when it comes to sensor technology.
