6 Reasons For
Hugely smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a minimum aperture of 1.8, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (1.5 larger).
Shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 3mm shorter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (28mm).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 66MB internal memory digital camera. That's 56MB bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (10MB).
Higher display resolution Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 920,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 460,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (460,000 pixels).
1g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a weight of 187g, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 188g digital camera (1g 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.

Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the Fujifilm XQ2 is 91%, but the average rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is 80% (based on 3 reviews).
6 Reasons For
26% higher megapixel count Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 16.1MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Fujifilm XQ2 (16.1MP). 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.

More total megapixel count Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 17.5MP digital camera. That's 3MP more than the Fujifilm XQ2 (17.5MP).
0.6x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 4.6x optical zoom digital camera. That's 0.6x bigger than the Fujifilm XQ2 (4.6x). 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.

1 smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 1 smaller than the Fujifilm XQ2 (5.9).
A lot longer maximum focal length Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 has a maximum focal length of 140mm, but the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 100mm maximum focal length digital camera (40mm shorter).
370.00 shots per battery charge Edit
The number of shots per battery charge on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is 370.00, but the Fujifilm XQ2 only takes 240.00 shots per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
