Panasonic FZ80 vs Panasonic G95 Sensor Comparison

Usually, it is hard to visualize the difference between sensor sizing simply by reading through technical specs. The photograph underneath might give you a greater sense of the sensor sizes in the FZ80 and G95.

As you can tell, each of the cameras posses different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The FZ80 featuring a tinier sensor is going to make shooting shallower depth of field trickier and the Panasonic G95 will give more detail due to its extra 2.3MP. Greater resolution will also make it easier to crop images somewhat more aggressively. The older FZ80 is going to be behind with regard to sensor technology.
