22 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is better

than the average

1.Noticeably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
11fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
269gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
3.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
4.A lot higher pixel density
462ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
5.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
67.1mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
7.Slightly more battery power
1250mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
8.Measurably less body volume
338.1cm³vs 531.1cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
45.6mmvs 50.8mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
10.Substantially higher resolution
831x1,108pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
11.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
12.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
13.Marginally 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.
14.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.
15.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
16.Distinctly more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
17.Measurably wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.4vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
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.
18.Explicitly longer exposure time
250svs 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.
19.Clearly shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
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.
20.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
21.Pentax SMC coated lens
Pentax has set the benchmark on lens coatings for decades.
22.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.
