11 Reasons For
4MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 16MPMP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Fujifilm X30 (16MPMP). 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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 4xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm X30 (4xx). 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.

388mm longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a maximum focal length of 500mmmm, but the Fujifilm X30 is only a 112mm maximum focal length digital camera (388mm shorter).

The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 25mmmm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 3mm shorter than the Fujifilm X30 (25mmmm).
Two times lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a weight of 161gg, but the Fujifilm X30 is a 383g digital camera (222g heavier). Read more
