7 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V has a megapixel count of 20.4MPMP, however the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is only a 16.4MPMP digital camera (4MP lower). 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 digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V has a digital zoom of 810xx, but the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is only a 2xx digital zoom digital camera (808x smaller). 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.

12% smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V has a maximum aperture of 6.3, however the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is only a 5.6 maximum aperture digital camera (0.7 bigger).
20 smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V has a minimum ISO speed of 80, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera (20 bigger).
1 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V has a display resolution of 921,600 pixels pixels, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is only a 920,000 pixels pixels display resolution digital camera (1 pixels lower).
2% lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-HX400V is a 633gg digital camera. That's 7g lighter than the Fujifilm FinePix S1 (633gg). 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.

$88 cheaper
The Sony DSC-HX400V costs $448.00, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is $535.91.
