Nikon S3700 vs Nikon S80 Sensor Comparison

More often than not, it is hard to see the gap between sensor sizing only by going over technical specs. The graphic underneath might give you a clearer sense of the sensor sizing in the S3700 and S80.

As you have seen, the 2 cameras have got the exact same sensor measurements albeit not the same megapixels. You can count on the Nikon S3700 to deliver more detail with its extra 6MP. Higher resolution can also let you crop shots much more aggressively. The younger S3700 will have a benefit with regard to sensor tech.
