Kodak M580 vs Panasonic SZ10 Sensor Comparison

Generally, it is very difficult to imagine the difference between sensor sizing merely by checking specs. The visual below may provide you a much better sense of the sensor sizing in the M580 and SZ10.

As you can plainly see, the two cameras come with the identical sensor size albeit different MP. You should expect the Panasonic SZ10 to give extra detail having an extra 2 Megapixels. Higher resolution will also enable you to crop shots a good deal more aggressively. The older M580 is going to be disadvantaged with regard to sensor technology.
