Reasons For

9 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (8.1MP 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.

A lot more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a total megapixel count of 21.2MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is only a 12.8MP digital camera (8.4MP less).
2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a digital zoom of 4x, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Higher display resolution Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a display resolution of 461,000 pixels, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is only a 1.04 pixels display resolution digital camera (460,998.96 pixels lower).
GPS Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a GPS, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 does not have a GPS. Read more

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Thinner Edit
The Canon IXUS 275 HS is a 22.8mm deep digital camera, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is a 64.6mm deep digital camera (41.8mm thicker).

£126 cheaper
The Canon IXUS 275 HS costs £125.95 less than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71.
