7 Reasons For
3.9MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 has a megapixel count of 20.1MPMP, whereas the Samsung WB35F is only a 16.2MPMP digital camera (3.9MP 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.

More total megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 has a total megapixel count of 20MPMP, but the Samsung WB35F is only a 16.6MPMP digital camera (3.4MP less).
Vastly bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 has a digital zoom of 40xx, however the Samsung WB35F is only a 2xx digital zoom digital camera (38x 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.

0.1 smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 has a maximum aperture of 6.4, whereas the Samsung WB35F is only a 6.3 maximum aperture digital camera (0.1 bigger).
33% lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 109gg digital camera. That's 35g lighter than the Samsung WB35F (109gg). 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.

$62 cheaper
The Sony DSC-W800 costs $61.99 less than the Samsung WB35F.
Available from 4 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
