Reasons For

8 Reasons For
2% higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.25MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (16.05MP). 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.

4% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s is a 27mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1mm shorter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (28mm).
50% higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 25,600 higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (25,600).
1% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s has a display resolution (numeric) of 1,040,000 pixels. That's 3,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (1,037,000 pixels).
Higher magnification Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s is a 0.62x lens magnification ratio digital camera. That's 0.37x higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (0.25x). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Vastly lighter Edit
The Fujifilm X-E2s has a weight of 300g, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is a 480g digital camera (180g 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 £475
The Fujifilm X-E2s is £475 cheaper than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4.
3 shops are selling it
