The Nikon Coolpix S6800 is a 12xx optical zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Sony DSC-QX10 (10xx). 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.

17% longer maximum focal length Edit

5 Reasons For
13% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is an 18.2MPMP digital camera. That's 2.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (18.2MPMP). 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.

2.14MP more total megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is an 18.9MPMP digital camera. That's 2.14MP more than the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (18.9MPMP).
25 smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 25 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (100).
220 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is a digital camera that takes 220 shots shots per battery charge, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S6800 only takes 170 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.
