Samsung NX210 vs Sigma Quattro Sensor Comparison

Normally, its tough to picture the gap between sensor dimensions simply by checking a spec sheet. The pic underneath might give you a better sense of the sensor sizes in the NX210 and Quattro.

Clearly, both cameras posses the exact same sensor measurements but different MP. You can expect to see the Sigma Quattro to give extra detail as a result of its extra 9 Megapixels. Greater resolution can also make it easier to crop images somewhat more aggressively. The more aged NX210 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor innovation.
