Re: Compact Camera sharper than DSLR
The first set.... Different magnification, so it isn't a fair comparison. For the case of macro, yeah, I'd have to agree that certain PnS may have some advantages because of the smaller sensor and the greater depth of field.

The contrast of the PnS is factory tweaked to give a higher contrast thus it looks sharper but end of the day, a PnS loses out to a DSLR in terms of the details it can reproduce.
