7 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-WX220 is an 18.2MPMP digital camera. That's 2.1MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L27 (18.2MPMP). 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.

40% higher JPEG frame rate Edit
The Sony DSC-WX220 is a 50fpsfps JPEG frame rate digital camera. That's 20fps higher than the Nikon Coolpix L27 (50fpsfps).
Vastly lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-WX220 has a weight of 105gg, however the Nikon Coolpix L27 is a 161g digital camera (56g 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.

210 shots shots per battery charge Edit
The Sony DSC-WX220 takes 210 shots shots per battery charge, however the Nikon Coolpix L27 only takes 200.00 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.
