FujiFilm T300 vs Fujifilm S3 Pro Sensor Comparison

As you can see, each of these cameras posses different megapixel count and different sensor sizes. The T300 because of its smaller sensor is going to make getting shallower depth of field harder and the FujiFilm T300 will produce greater detail as a result of its extra 8MP. Higher resolution will let you crop shots somewhat more aggressively. The newer T300 should have an edge when it comes to sensor technology.
