Casio EX-10 vs Olympus E-PL7 Sensor Comparison

Generally, its difficult to visualise the gap in sensor sizing merely by viewing specifications. The photograph here might provide you a better sense of the sensor sizing in the EX-10 and E-PL7.

Plainly, both of the cameras offer different megapixel count and different sensor sizing. The EX-10 due to its smaller sensor will make getting shallower DOF tougher and the Olympus E-PL7 will result in more detail as a result of its extra 4 Megapixels. Higher resolution will let you crop shots a little more aggressively. The older EX-10 will be behind when it comes to sensor technology.
