Both sensor size and the number/size of the photosites┬╣ that sensor contains can have an effect on the images taken using that sensor. You seem to be wondering if your 32MP APS-C camera is "better" than a 26MP FF camera. The answer is that neither is inherently better than the other for all conceivable use cases. Which is "better" for ...

I am not comparing the two models you are quoting. I will only make some general observations. We need to define what do we mean by quality. 1. Noise A more modern sensor will generally better low light performance. Noise is more noticeable in darker zones. A bigger sensor is better for reducing the noise because it has more information from more photons &...

Pretty much every aspect of image quality is determined by the amount of light received/recorded for the image. And it is primarily a light/area consideration; larger sensors have a larger area, and receive/record more light for any given composition. The only aspect pixel size really relates to is resolution; how much you can enlarge/magnify that light/area ...

Image quality is highly correlated with pixel-size. A larger pixel accumulates more light during an exposure of a certain duration. By having more light, there is less noise in the image because the pixel gets more signal from light and noise is relatively stable. So proportionate, which is what we perceive, images are less noisy. Larger pixels also have a ...
