Reasons For

7 Reasons For
50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot S120 is a 4xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (2xx). 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.

Significantly smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Canon PowerShot S120 has a minimum aperture of 1.8, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 2.9 minimum aperture digital camera (1.1 larger).
Higher display resolution Edit
The Canon PowerShot S120 is a 922,000 pixels pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 462 pixels higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (460,000 pixels pixels).
Lighter Edit
The Canon PowerShot S120 has a weight of 217gg, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 577gg digital camera (360g 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.

48% shorter Edit
The Canon PowerShot S120 has a height of 59mmmm. That's 27.9mm shorter than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (86.9mmmm).
Narrower Edit
Canon PowerShot S120 is 100.2mmmm wide. That's 22.4mm narrower than the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 (122.6mmmm).
A little better expert reviews
The average expert review score of the Canon PowerShot S120 is 81%, whereas the average rating of the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is 80% (based on 1 review).
8 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 has a megapixel count of 16.2MPMP, whereas the Canon PowerShot S120 is only a 12.1MPMP digital camera (4.1MP 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.

0.8 smaller maximum aperture Edit
