Pentax MX-1

Compared to Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

anonymous
54
Explicitly more megapixels (photo)
12.76 MP
vs
10.1 MP
26.34% more megapixels (photo)
anonymous
53
Amply more focus points
25
vs
23
2 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.

39
Explicitly faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125 s
vs
0.00025 s
2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
anonymous
38
Has a 24p cinema mode
Yes
vs
No
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
anonymous
35
Is a system camera
Yes
vs
No
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
anonymous
35
Has a two-stage shutter
Yes
vs
No
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.
anonymous
32
Has a BSI sensor
Yes
vs
No
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
anonymous
32
A lot 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 sensor shift stabilization
Yes
vs
No
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
anonymous
28
Sizably 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.
anonymous
26
Sizably more internal storage
75.3 GB
vs
0.07 GB
75.23 GB more internal storage
anonymous
22
Can be controlled remotely
Yes
vs
No
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.

44
Substantially faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
11 fps
vs
6 fps
1.83x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

33
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.
anonymous
33
Sizably more microphone(s)
2
vs
1
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
anonymous
31
Can create panoramas in-camera
Yes
vs
No
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
anonymous
30
Substantially 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
1.8
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
28
Has manual exposure
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
28
Has manual shutter speed
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
anonymous
28
Less body volume
338.1 cm³
vs
379.5 cm³
12.24% less body volume
anonymous
27
Clearly 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.
anonymous
26
Has an accelerometer
Yes
vs
No
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes from a vertical to a horizontal position.
anonymous
26
Has a removable battery
Yes
vs
No
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
anonymous
23
Has a hot shoe
Yes
vs
No
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
anonymous
22
Every pixel has three subpixels
Yes
vs
No
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
anonymous
15
Has a brand lens
Yes
vs
No
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
