Fujifilm XP70 vs Nikon D1 Sensor Comparison

Generally, it is difficult to envision the contrast between sensor sizes simply by checking specifications. The pic here might give you a more clear sense of the sensor measurements in the XP70 and D1.

To sum up, the 2 cameras feature different megapixel count and different sensor sizes. The XP70 using its tinier sensor will make achieving shallower DOF more difficult and the Fujifilm XP70 will give extra detail because of its extra 13 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also let you crop pics way more aggressively. The more recent XP70 will have an advantage with regard to sensor innovation.
