9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 20.1MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (20.1MP). 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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 63x optical zoom digital camera. That's 13x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (63x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 126x digital zoom digital camera. That's 124x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (126x). 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.

Four times smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 has an ISO sensitivity (min) of 80. That's 320 smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (80).
Longer slowest camera shutter speed Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 has a slowest camera shutter speed of 30s. That's 22s longer than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (30s). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

31% bigger internal memory Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 55MB internal memory digital camera. That's 17MB bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (55MB).
1% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 has a display resolution (numeric) of 460,800 pixels. That's 800 pixels higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (460,800 pixels).
Cheaper by $50
The Sony DSC-H400 is $50.07 cheaper than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400.
2 shops are selling it
