Reasons For

12 Reasons For
A bit higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 has a megapixel count of 16.2MPMP, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is only a 16.1MPMP digital camera (0.099999999999998MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Significantly bigger optical zoom Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 has an optical zoom of 40xx, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is only a 4.6xx optical zoom digital camera (35.4x smaller). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

5 Reasons For
Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is a 4xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (4xx). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

389g lighter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 has a weight of 188gg, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 577gg digital camera (389g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Shorter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 has a height of 67.4mmmm. That's 19.5mm shorter than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (67.4mmmm).
Narrower Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is 109.2mmmm wide. That's 13.4mm narrower than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (109.2mmmm).
370 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 takes 370 shots shots per battery charge, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 only takes 300 shots shots per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
