7 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 16.15MP digital camera (3.95MP 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.

Hugely bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has a digital zoom of 48x, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (44x smaller). 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.

0.5 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has a maximum aperture number of 6.5, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 6 maximum aperture digital camera (0.5 bigger).
21MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has an internal memory of 29MB, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only an 8MB internal memory digital camera (21MB smaller).
400 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 is a 230,400 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (400 pixels lower).
Four times lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 is a 111g digital camera. That's 343g lighter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (111g). 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.

$56 cheaper
The Sony DSC-W810 costs $93.97, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is $150.07.
