Reasons For

5 Reasons For
A lot bigger optical zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has an optical zoom of 42xx, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 28xx optical zoom digital camera (14x smaller). 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.

2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a digital zoom of 4xx, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 2xx digital zoom digital camera (2x 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.

Slightly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a maximum aperture of 6, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.1 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 2.6 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (3.1).
Hugely higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a maximum ISO speed of 3,200, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (2 lower).
12 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.2MPMP digital camera. That's 4.05MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (20.2MPMP). 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.

20% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.48MPMP digital camera. That's 4.04MP more than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (20.48MPMP).
Vastly longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a maximum focal length of 630mmmm, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 1,008mmmm maximum focal length digital camera (629mm shorter).
Shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 22.5mmmm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (22.5mmmm).
Higher display resolution Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 460,000 pixels pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 230 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (460,000 pixels pixels).
24g lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a weight of 430gg, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 454gg digital camera (24g heavier). 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.

7% shorter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a height of 76.3mmmm. That's 5.3mm shorter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (76.3mmmm).
2% thinner Edit
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 83.3mmmm deep. That's 1.1mm thinner than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (83.3mmmm).
Narrower Edit
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 111.1mmmm wide. That's 1.6mm narrower than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (111.1mmmm).
Four supported batteries Edit
The number of supported batteries on the Nikon Coolpix L340 is four, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only has one supported battery.
370 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 takes 370 shots shots per battery charge, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only takes 200 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.
