Reasons For

4 Reasons For
4.2MP higher megapixel Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a megapixel of 24.2MP, whereas the Medion Life X44022 is only a 20MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.

10.1 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 16 maximum aperture digital camera, whereas the Medion Life X44022 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (10.1 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a minimum aperture number of 1.7. That's 1.3 smaller than the Medion Life X44022 (3).
Available from 3 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
5 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 35x optical zoom digital camera. That's 34x bigger than the Leica Q (Typ 116) (35x). 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.

64% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 3.2x bigger than the Leica Q (Typ 116) (5x). 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.

90g lighter Edit
The Medion Life X44022 has a weight of 500g, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 590g digital camera (90g 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.

Cheaper by £3,284
The Medion Life X44022 costs £114.99, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is £3,399.00.
Slightly better user reviews
The average user review score of the Medion Life X44022 is 100% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Leica Q (Typ 116) is 99% (based on 14 reviews).
