Canon A2300 vs Canon D30 Sensor Comparison

Normally, it can be difficult to visualise the gap between sensor dimensions merely by reading through specifications. The image underneath might provide you a better sense of the sensor sizes in the A2300 and D30.

Plainly, the 2 cameras come with the identical sensor size albeit not the same megapixels. You should expect the Canon A2300 to give greater detail with its extra 4MP. Higher resolution will also make it easier to crop shots a good deal more aggressively. The more aged A2300 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor technology.
