Panasonic FX700 vs Panasonic GF6 Sensor Comparison

Usually, its difficult to visualize the contrast in sensor sizes just by researching technical specs. The pic here should offer you a greater sense of the sensor sizes in the FX700 and GF6.

As you can tell, both of those cameras provide different megapixel count and different sensor sizes. The FX700 due to its smaller sensor is going to make shooting shallow depth of field trickier and the Panasonic GF6 will render extra detail due to its extra 2 Megapixels. Higher resolution will help you crop shots more aggressively. The more aged FX700 will be disadvantaged with regard to sensor innovation.
