7 Reasons For
15% higher megapixel Edit
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 has a megapixel of 16.3MP, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 is only a 14MP digital camera (2.3MP 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.

16x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 has an optical zoom of 21x, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (16x 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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 is 2.8 minimum aperture. That's 0.7 smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 (2.8).
74% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 is a 483mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 353mm longer than the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 (483mm).
Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 is 23mm minimum focal length, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 is a 26mm minimum focal length digital camera (3mm longer).
A lot larger display diagonal Edit

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Two hundred and twenty-four more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 EK-GC200 is a digital camera that takes 394.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 only takes 170.00 battery life (CIPA standard). 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.
