Reasons For

6 Reasons For
2% higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.25MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 (16.05MP). 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.
