C-Lux vs PowerShot SX520 HS: The sensors

The C-Lux features a 1" sized sensor, while the PowerShot SX520 HS uses a Compact sensor.

Boasting an area of 116mm² (0.19 sq.in.) the sensor of the C-Lux is a lot larger than the PowerShot SX520 HS's chip at 28mm² (0.04 sq.in.). In most cases a larger sensor will yield better results in low light, a considerable advantage in many situations (think: interior images, dusk or dawn etc.), a clear disadvantage of the Compact format.
