How would acamera like theCANON POWERSHOT PRO1compare to a SONY FCB-BLOCK camera in terms pr picture quality speacially image noise. I have the sony's specs but i don't know much about cameras at all any help would be really apreciated.

the reason why i'm not sure is becuase the canon has 143000pixels per square mm and the sony has only 55000 per square mm I know canon would be better if they had equal pixel per mm but would that much of pixel size difference make sony better
