76g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a weight of 331g, whereas the Sony Alpha A7R is a 407g digital camera (76g 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.

350.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 is a digital camera that takes 350.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Sony Alpha A7R only takes 340.00 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.

Cheaper by £300
The Fujifilm X-T1 costs £699.00, whereas the Sony Alpha A7R is £999.00.

2 Reasons For
55% higher megapixel Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.4MP digital camera. That's 19.7MP higher than the Fujifilm X-T1 (36.4MP). 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.

15 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
