Reasons For

Canon IXUS 275 HS Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70
5 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Canon IXUS 275 HS is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 8.1MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 (12.1MP).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Canon IXUS 275 HS is a 7 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 0.6 larger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 (6.4).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
49x Smaller Closest Focusing Distance
The Canon IXUS 275 HS has a closest focusing distance of 0.01m, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is a 0.5m closest focusing distance digital camera (0.49m larger).

'Closest focusing distance' marks the minimum distance between the camera and the object being photographed in order to active a proper focus. Attempts to take photos closer than this distance may end up being blurry.

A closer focusing distance is helpful because it allows you to take extreme close-ups and shots of very small objects while still keeping sharp focus.

Cheaper by £79
The Canon IXUS 275 HS costs £79.03 less than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70.
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.6%, whereas Panasonic has an average rating of 86.4%.
10 Reasons For
Vastly Bigger Optical Zoom
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has an optical zoom of 30x, however the Canon IXUS 275 HS is only a 12x optical zoom digital camera (18x smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
10% Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is 3.3 minimum aperture. That's 0.3 smaller than the Canon IXUS 275 HS (3.6).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 420mm longer than the Canon IXUS 275 HS (300mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camera is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
Slightly Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is 24mm minimum focal length, but the Canon IXUS 275 HS is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camera can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 is 6,400 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon IXUS 275 HS is only a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
Significantly Higher Display Resolution
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has a display resolution of 1,040,000 pixels, whereas the Canon IXUS 275 HS is only a 461,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (579,000 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
HDMI
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 has an HDMI, whereas the Canon IXUS 275 HS does not.

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.
