Casio TRYX vs Nikon A100 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it is very hard to imagine the contrast between sensor sizes only by reading through a spec sheet. The image here might offer you a better sense of the sensor measurements in the TRYX and A100.

Clearly, both of the cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing but different MP. You can expect to see the Nikon A100 to give you extra detail because of its extra 8 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also help you crop images far more aggressively. The more aged TRYX is going to be behind in sensor technology.
