Panasonic TS1 vs Panasonic TS2 Sensor Comparison

Often, it is very tough to envision the contrast between sensor sizing just by reading through technical specs. The visual underneath may offer you a far better sense of the sensor dimensions in the TS1 and TS2.

As you can tell, the 2 cameras come with the identical sensor size albeit not the same MP. You should expect the Panasonic TS2 to give you more detail as a result of its extra 2 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also allow you to crop shots a good deal more aggressively. The older TS1 is going to be behind in sensor technology.
