Comparing Fujifilm X20 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

1. Fujifilm X20

8 Reasons why Fujifilm X20 is better

Comparing Fujifilm X20 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

1.Appreciably more megapixels (photo)
12MPvs 10.1MP (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
2.Appreciably larger sensor
8.8 x 6.6mmvs 7.44 x 5.58mm (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Appreciably more focus points
255vs 23 (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
4.Clearly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12fpsvs 11fps (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
6.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
7.A lot greater zoom range
4xvs 3.8x (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
8.Substantially longer maximum focal length
112mmvs 90mm (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.

19 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is better

Comparing Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Fujifilm X20

269gvs 333g (Fujifilm X20)
2.Considerably higher pixel density
462ppivs 357ppi (Fujifilm X20)
3.Significantly higher resolution
1,108 x 831pxvs 831 x 554px (Fujifilm X20)
4.Measurably more battery power
1250mAhvs 1000mAh (Fujifilm X20)
5.Substantially less body volume
338.1cm³vs 486.8cm³ (Fujifilm X20)
6.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Fujifilm X20)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
110.5mmvs 117mm (Fujifilm X20)
67.1mmvs 69.6mm (Fujifilm X20)
45.6mmvs 56.8mm (Fujifilm X20)
10.Has AF tracking
Yesvs No (Fujifilm X20)
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
11.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (Fujifilm X20)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
12.Considerably bigger screen size
3"vs 2.8" (Fujifilm X20)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
13.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (Fujifilm X20)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
14.Measurably wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.4vs 2 (Fujifilm X20)
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
15.Significantly longer exposure time
250svs 30s (Fujifilm X20)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
16.Vastly shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 28mm (Fujifilm X20)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
17.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (Fujifilm X20)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
18.Pentax SMC coated lens
Pentax has set the benchmark on lens coatings for decades.
19.Has a two-stage shutter
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.
