Olympus 6000 vs Panasonic FH25 Sensor Comparison

Sometimes, it can be tough to picture the contrast between sensor sizing merely by looking at specs. The graphic here may give you a far better sense of the sensor dimensions in the 6000 and FH25.

All in all, the two cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing but different resolution. You should anticipate the Panasonic FH25 to give you greater detail with its extra 6 Megapixels. Greater resolution will also allow you to crop images far more aggressively. The older 6000 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor technology.
