Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D has a megapixel count of 12.2MPMP, but the Nikon 1 V1 is only a 10.1MPMP digital camera (2.1MP 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.

8% longer maximum focal length Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D is an 88mmmm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 7mm longer than the Nikon 1 V1 (81mmmm).
Three hundred more shots per battery charge Edit
The Canon EOS 1100D takes 700 shots shots per battery charge, however the Nikon 1 V1 only takes 400 shots shots per battery charge. Read more
