Casio EX-ZS5 vs Nikon L32 Sensor Comparison

Sometimes, it can be hard to picture the gap in sensor dimensions simply by researching technical specs. The pic below may give you a far better sense of the sensor dimensions in the EX-ZS5 and L32.

As you have seen, both the cameras feature the identical sensor size but different megapixels. You can expect to see the Nikon L32 to result in extra detail as a result of its extra 6MP. Greater resolution can also make it easier to crop photos way more aggressively. The more aged EX-ZS5 will be disadvantaged in sensor tech.
