10 Reasons For
1% higher megapixel Edit
The Samsung WB350F is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.15MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (16.3MP). 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.

2% more total megapixels Edit
The Samsung WB350F is a 16.7MP digital camera. That's 0.26MP more than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (16.7MP).
20% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Samsung WB350F is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (5x). 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.

5% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Samsung WB350F has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 23mm. That's 1mm shorter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (23mm).
1.5MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Samsung WB350F is a 9.5MB internal memory digital camera. That's 1.5MB bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (9.5MB).
A lot larger maximum memory card size Edit
The Samsung WB350F has a maximum memory card size of 64GB, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 32GB maximum memory card size digital camera (32GB smaller).
50% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Samsung WB350F is 460,000 pixels display resolution. That's 230,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (460,000 pixels).
Hugely lighter Edit
The Samsung WB350F has a weight of 216g, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 454g digital camera (238g 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.

310.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard)s on the Samsung WB350F is 310.00, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only takes 200.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

5 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
