Sony TX200V vs Sony WX9 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it's hard to see the difference between sensor measurements purely by reviewing technical specs. The photograph underneath may give you a far better sense of the sensor sizes in the TX200V and WX9.

As you can tell, each of these cameras come with the identical sensor size but not the same resolution. You should anticipate the Sony TX200V to offer greater detail having its extra 2MP. Greater resolution will also make it easier to crop photos a good deal more aggressively. The younger TX200V is going to have an advantage when it comes to sensor technology.
