Reasons For

3 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix X100S has a megapixel count of 16.3MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.

5x smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix X100S is a 2 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 9 smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 (11).
Lighter Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix X100S is a 405g digital camera. That's 286g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 (691g). 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.
