Canon A2500 vs Casio EX-10 Sensor Comparison

Often, its hard to visualize the contrast in sensor measurements purely by researching specs. The graphic underneath might offer you a greater sense of the sensor sizes in the A2500 and EX-10.

As you can plainly see, the 2 cameras provide different resolutions and different sensor measurements. The A2500 having a smaller sensor is going to make achieving shallower depth of field trickier and the Canon A2500 will result in extra detail with its extra 4MP. Higher resolution will also allow you to crop shots more aggressively. The older A2500 will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor technology.
