Panasonic FX75 vs Panasonic GH4 Sensor Comparison

Generally, its difficult to see the difference in sensor sizes purely by going through specifications. The pic underneath might offer you a stronger sense of the sensor sizes in the FX75 and GH4.

Plainly, both of these cameras provide different megapixel count and different sensor sizes. The FX75 with its smaller sensor will make shooting shallow DOF more challenging and the Panasonic GH4 will show more detail with its extra 2 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also allow you to crop pics more aggressively. The more aged FX75 will be disadvantaged in sensor innovation.
