Sigma fp vs Sony A7c Sensor Comparison

Typically, it is very hard to visualise the difference between sensor measurements simply by looking at specifications. The photograph here will provide you a greater sense of the sensor sizing in the fp and A7c.

Plainly, the 2 cameras feature the identical sensor size but not the same MP. You should expect to see the Sigma fp to give you greater detail because of its extra 1 Megapixels. Greater resolution will allow you to crop pics way more aggressively. The older fp is going to be disadvantaged in sensor technology.
