Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Bigger total megapixels Edit
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 is a 15.49MP sensor camcorder. That's 1.49MP bigger than the Ricoh Theta S (14MP). Read more

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Image stabilizer Edit
The Panasonic AG-DVX200 has an image stabilizer, but the Ricoh Theta S does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Image stabiliser is a system, either software (not good) or hardware (good) driven that smooths out the movement of the camera when used in a handheld mode. The Z7 has a hardware image stabiliser.
