A lot higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 has a maximum ISO speed of 12,800, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is only a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 lower).
30g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 187g digital camera. That's 30g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 (217g). 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.

6.1mm shorter Edit
The Fujifilm XQ2 is a 58.5mm tall digital camera, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is a 64.6mm tall digital camera (6.1mm taller).
1.1mm thinner Edit

11% narrower Edit

11 Reasons For
A little higher megapixel count Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has a megapixel count of 12.1MP, however the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 12MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

Vastly bigger optical zoom Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has an optical zoom of 30x, however the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 4x optical zoom digital camera (26x smaller). 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.

24% smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has a maximum aperture of 6.4, however the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 4.9 maximum aperture digital camera (1.5 bigger).
Longer maximum focal length Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 620mm longer than the Fujifilm XQ2 (720mm).
Slightly shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has a minimum focal length of 24mm, but the Fujifilm XQ2 is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

24% bigger internal memory Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has an internal memory of 86MB, however the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 66MB internal memory digital camera (20MB smaller).
120,000 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has a display resolution of 1,040,000 pixels, whereas the Fujifilm XQ2 is only a 920,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (120,000 pixels lower).
Sixty more shots per battery charge Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is a digital camera that takes 300.00 shots per battery charge, whereas 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.
