Nikon L110 vs Nikon L820 Sensor Comparison

Oftentimes, it is very difficult to see the difference between sensor measurements purely by reading technical specs. The graphic below may give you a clearer sense of the sensor measurements in the L110 and L820.

As you have seen, both of these cameras have got the exact same sensor measurements but not the same resolution. You should expect to see the Nikon L820 to offer more detail with its extra 4MP. Greater resolution can also help you crop images much more aggressively. The older L110 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor tech.
