Casio EX-S5 vs Casio EX-ZS5 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it is very hard to visualise the contrast between sensor dimensions purely by checking technical specs. The picture here may give you a greater sense of the sensor sizing in the EX-S5 and EX-ZS5.

As you have seen, the 2 cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing but not the same MP. You should expect to see the Casio EX-ZS5 to give greater detail with its extra 5 Megapixels. Greater resolution will also allow you to crop pics far more aggressively. The more aged EX-S5 is going to be behind in sensor innovation.
