Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Vastly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a maximum aperture of 19, however the Sony DSC-H400 is only a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera (12.5 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 2.9 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.5 smaller than the Sony DSC-H400 (3.4).
Lighter Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 577gg digital camera. That's 51g lighter than the Sony DSC-H400 (628gg). 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.

Three more supported batteries Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has four supported batteries, however the Sony DSC-H400 only has one supported battery.
Two hundred more shots per battery charge Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a digital camera that takes 500 shots shots per battery charge, whereas the Sony DSC-H400 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.

5 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 20.1MPMP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (20.1MPMP). 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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 63xx optical zoom digital camera. That's 13x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (63xx). 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.

498x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 500xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 498x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (500xx). 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.

Four times smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 320 smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (80).
31% bigger internal memory Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 55MBMB internal memory digital camera. That's 17MB bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (55MBMB).

Reasons Against
