Nikon P600 vs Sigma DP2s Overview
Its time to look a bit more closely at the Nikon P600 versus Sigma DP2s, former being a Small Sensor Superzoom while the latter is a Large Sensor Compact by competitors Nikon and Sigma. There is a substantial difference between the image resolutions of the P600 (16MP) and DP2s (5MP) and the P600 (1/2.3") and DP2s (APS-C) come with totally different sensor measurements.400 Megapixel mode coming to Fujifilm GFX 100
The P600 was released 4 years later than the DP2s and that is quite a big difference as far as tech is concerned. Each of the cameras offer different body type with the Nikon P600 being a SLR-like (bridge) camera and the Sigma DP2s being a Large Sensor Compact camera.
Before going through a full comparison, below is a quick summation of how the P600 scores vs the DP2s when it comes to portability, imaging, features and an overall grade.

Nikon P600 vs Sigma DP2s Sensor Comparison
Often, it is very hard to envision the gap between sensor sizes merely by looking at technical specs. The pic below should give you a clearer sense of the sensor sizing in the P600 and DP2s.
As you have seen, each of the cameras feature different resolutions and different sensor sizes. The P600 having a tinier sensor will make shooting shallower DOF harder and the Nikon P600 will resolve more detail having an extra 11MP. Higher resolution will help you crop pictures way more aggressively. The newer P600 is going to have a benefit with regard to sensor technology.
