Fujifilm X100V vs Nikon S3000 Sensor Comparison

Usually, it's difficult to imagine the gap between sensor sizing purely by looking at a spec sheet. The photograph underneath will help give you a more clear sense of the sensor sizes in the X100V and S3000.

Clearly, both of these cameras enjoy different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The X100V featuring a larger sensor is going to make getting shallow DOF less difficult and the Fujifilm X100V will give more detail as a result of its extra 14MP. Greater resolution will let you crop pics far more aggressively. The younger X100V provides an advantage with regard to sensor innovation.
