Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm X70 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.

Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Fujifilm X70 is a 16 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 10.4 smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (5.6).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Fujifilm X70 is 1,040,000 pixels display resolution. That's 3,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 (1,037,000 pixels).
178g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm X70 has a weight of 302g, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is a 480g digital camera (178g 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 £302
The Fujifilm X70 costs £301.99 less than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4.
