Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10

12 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 is better

than the average

1.Clearly larger sensor
17.3 x 13mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Marginally more battery power
1250mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
83.6mmvs 96.6mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
4.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (86% don't have it)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
5.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
6.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
7.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
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.
8.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (84% don't have it)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
9.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
10.Somewhat more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
11.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
12.Noticeably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
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.
