Reasons For

5 Reasons For
4.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a megapixel of 16.3MP, but the Sony Alpha A7S II is only a 12.2MP digital camera (4.1MP 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.

4.3MP more total megapixels Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a total megapixels of 16.7MP, however the Sony Alpha A7S II is only a 12.4MP digital camera (4.3MP less).
