C-Lux vs Cyber-shot H300: The sensors

The C-Lux features a 1" sized sensor, while the Cyber-shot H300 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 Cyber-shot H300'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.
