Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X70 is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.25MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (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.

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.

The Fujifilm X70 is a 16 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 10.4 smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (5.6).
