Nikon P7800 vs Pentax W60 Sensor Comparison

Sometimes, it can be tough to picture the gap between sensor measurements only by checking a spec sheet. The visual here should give you a greater sense of the sensor sizes in the P7800 and W60.

Clearly, both cameras provide different megapixels and different sensor measurements. The P7800 due to its larger sensor is going to make achieving shallower depth of field simpler and the Nikon P7800 will resolve more detail due to its extra 2MP. Greater resolution can also enable you to crop images more aggressively. The more recent P7800 should have a benefit with regard to sensor tech.
