5 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 100D - Rebel SL1 has a megapixel count of 18MP, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (5.9MP lower). Read more

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.

A lot more total megapixel count Edit
