Reasons For

3 Reasons For
459,980 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-H400 is only a 20 pixels display resolution digital camera (459,980 pixels lower).
Lighter Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 577g digital camera. That's 51g lighter than the Sony DSC-H400 (628g). 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.

Two hundred more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a digital camera that takes 500.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Sony DSC-H400 only takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard). 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.

3 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.

Cheaper by $87
The Sony DSC-H400 is $87.36 cheaper than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400.
