19 Reasons For
7.9MP Higher Megapixels
The Samsung NX500 has a megapixels of 28.2MP, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 20.3MP digital camera (7.9MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
53% Lighter
The Samsung NX500 is a 285g digital camera. That's 150g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 (435g).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
40 More Battery Life
The Samsung NX500 is a digital camera that takes 370 battery life, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 only takes 330 battery life.

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.

Panasonic was the first company to produce a compact system camera in the shape of the Lumix DMC-G1, back in 2008, and since then it has built up an impressive range of Micro Four Thirds cameras and lenses. Indeed, it has gone further than any other ...
It may not have the retro styling and overall charisma of its most direct competitor, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II, and on first impressions you could be forgiven for thinking that it is oversized for its sensor, but once you get past this theres a lot t...

Key Features

Megapixels

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.

Weight

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.
