Sigma fp vs Sigma fp L Sensor Comparison

Typically, it is very tough to visualize the contrast between sensor dimensions purely by looking at specifications. The picture here may offer you a much better sense of the sensor dimensions in the fp and fp L.

To sum up, both of these cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing albeit different megapixels. You should count on the Sigma fp L to resolve greater detail as a result of its extra 36 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also make it easier to crop shots far more aggressively. The more aged fp is going to be behind in sensor tech.
