Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX78 with Samsung TL500 Overview

The sensor resolution of TL500 is greater than that of Lumix DMC-FX78. However, the difference of 2 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (Lumix DMC-FX78), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Panasonic FX78, the maximum ISO is greater by 3200. Both cameras have Optical image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch articulated screen.
Samsung TL500 has 4.0 fps continuous shooting.
