Panasonic FH1 vs Panasonic FH10 Sensor Comparison

Often, it can be hard to see the gap between sensor sizes only by reviewing a spec sheet. The image below should offer you a better sense of the sensor sizing in the FH1 and FH10.

Clearly, the two cameras have the same sensor dimensions albeit not the same resolution. You should count on the Panasonic FH10 to offer extra detail as a result of its extra 4 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also make it easier to crop photographs a bit more aggressively. The more aged FH1 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor technology.
