Fujifilm XQ1 vs Nikon S80 Sensor Comparison

Oftentimes, it is very tough to imagine the difference in sensor sizing only by going through specs. The graphic underneath might give you a more clear sense of the sensor sizes in the Fujifilm XQ1 and S80.

All in all, both the cameras provide different resolutions and different sensor sizing. The Fujifilm XQ1 having a bigger sensor is going to make getting shallower depth of field easier and the Nikon S80 will produce more detail using its extra 2MP. Higher resolution will allow you to crop photographs more aggressively. The more recent Fujifilm XQ1 should have an edge with regard to sensor technology.
