Digital Camera Sensor Size Chart

The following is a digital camera sensor size chart that will be updated constantly.

Many camera or phone design focuses on Mega Pixel specifications, i.e. MP. However, it is the camera sensor size that affects the quality of the image. A bigger sensor will capture more lights, and hence should produce a higher quality photo than a smaller sensor. This is why a full frame DSLR with 24MP can produce a better photo than a tiny 1/2.5″ phone camera sensor with say, over 100 MP.

We are still in the midst of researching, correcting and updating the following chart with more recent devices.
