Top Eight Reasons for the

Fujifilm X20

Compared to Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

anonymous
53
Significantly more focus points
255
vs
23
232 more focus points. 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.

Noticeably more megapixels (photo)
12 MP
vs
10.1 MP
18.81% more megapixels (photo)

50
Substantially larger sensor
6.6 x 8.8 mm
vs
5.58 x 7.44 mm
39.90% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

44
Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12 fps
vs
11 fps
9.09% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

32
Reasonably greater zoom range
4 x
vs
3.8 x
0.20 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
anonymous
30
Has an optical viewfinder
Yes
vs
No
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.
anonymous
30
Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
anonymous
28
Clearly longer maximum focal length
112 mm
vs
90 mm
22 mm longer maximum focal length. 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.

Supports AVCHD format
Yes
vs
No
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.

32
Has AF tracking
Yes
vs
No
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.
anonymous
31
Has a built-in HDR mode
Yes
vs
No
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
anonymous
30
Vastly shorter minimum focal length
24 mm
vs
28 mm
4 mm shorter minimum focal length. 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.
anonymous
30
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.4
vs
2
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the minimum focal length. 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.
anonymous
29
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
29
Somewhat bigger screen size
3 "
vs
2.8 "
7.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
anonymous
28
Has manual shutter speed
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.

Considerably less body volume
338.1 cm³
vs
486.8 cm³
43.98% less body volume
anonymous
27
Sizably longer exposure time
250 s
vs
30 s
220 s longer exposure time. 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.
