Panasonic FX700 vs Panasonic G1 Sensor Comparison

Often, it is very tough to visualise the gap between sensor dimensions purely by looking at a spec sheet. The image here might offer you a much better sense of the sensor sizing in the FX700 and G1.

As you can see, both cameras provide different megapixel count and different sensor dimensions. The FX700 due to its tinier sensor will make shooting shallower DOF tougher and the Panasonic FX700 will give greater detail having its extra 2MP. Higher resolution will also enable you to crop shots more aggressively. The more recent FX700 is going to have a benefit when it comes to sensor tech.
