Reasons For

8 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (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.

3.6MP more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS is a 21.1MP digital camera. That's 3.6MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (17.5MP).

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS is a 12x optical zoom digital camera. That's 7.4x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (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.
