10 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX400 is has a megapixel count of 16MPMP, but the Olympus Stylus 1 is only a 12MPMP digital camera (4MP 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.

24% more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX400 is has a total megapixel count of 16.6MPMP, however the Olympus Stylus 1 is only a 12.76MPMP digital camera (3.84MP less).
