Samsung MV800 vs Sony T99 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it can be hard to envision the gap between sensor sizing merely by looking at a spec sheet. The photograph here will provide you a clearer sense of the sensor sizes in the MV800 and T99.

Clearly, both of these cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing albeit not the same megapixels. You should expect the Samsung MV800 to resolve greater detail having its extra 2MP. Higher resolution will help you crop photographs far more aggressively. The more recent MV800 is going to have an advantage when it comes to sensor tech.
