Reasons For

8 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 4x optical zoom digital camera. That's 2.6x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (1.4x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 4.9 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 1.4 smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (3.5).
Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a minimum aperture of 1.8, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a 5.6 minimum aperture digital camera (3.8 larger).
2x lighter Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a weight of 187g, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a 390g digital camera (203g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

45% shorter Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 58.5mm tall digital camera. That's 26.1mm shorter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (84.6mm).
Thinner Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a depth of 33.3mm. That's 38.1mm thinner than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (71.4mm).
23% narrower Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a width of 100mm. That's 22.45mm narrower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (122.45mm).
Moderately better user reviews
The average user review score of the Fujifilm XQ2 is 91% based on 17 reviews, but the average rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is 88% (based on 5 reviews).
3 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 has a megapixel count of 16.05MP, however the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 12MP digital camera (4.05MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

30s longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 is a 60s maximum shutter speed digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 30s maximum shutter speed digital camera (30s shorter). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.
