9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 is a 20.1MPMP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Samsung WB50F (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.

19% more total megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 is a 20.4MPMP digital camera. That's 3.8MP more than the Samsung WB50F (20.4MPMP).
Bigger digital zoom Edit

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.
