Casio EX-ZS5 vs Fujifilm S8200 Sensor Comparison

Quite often, it's difficult to visualize the gap between sensor sizes only by reviewing a spec sheet. The pic here should provide you a more clear sense of the sensor sizes in the EX-ZS5 and S8200.

Clearly, both of these cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing albeit different MP. You can expect the Fujifilm S8200 to offer you extra detail as a result of its extra 2 Megapixels. Higher resolution will also let you crop pictures far more aggressively. The more aged EX-ZS5 is going to be disadvantaged in sensor tech.
