Reasons For

7 Reasons For
1% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 is a 16.1MP digital camera. That's 0.1MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (16MP). 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.

0.2 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Nikon Coolpix L31 is 3.2 minimum aperture, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 3.4 minimum aperture digital camera (0.2 larger).
0.2m bigger normal focusing range (wide) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a normal focusing range (wide) of 0.5 - ∞m, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 0.3 - ∞m normal focusing range (wide) digital camera (0.2m smaller).
57% smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 45 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (125).
Marginally lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a weight of 160g, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 161g digital camera (1g 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.

Two number of batteries supporteds Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has two number of batteries supporteds, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 only has one number of batteries supported.
Cheaper by $125
The Nikon Coolpix L31 costs $75.00, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is $199.95.
15 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has an image stabilizer, but the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

2% more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 16.76MP digital camera. That's 0.32MP more than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (16.76MP).
75% bigger optical zoom Edit

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.

Significantly longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 500mm maximum focal length digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L31 is only a 130mm maximum focal length digital camera (370mm shorter).
4% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit

Larger display diagonal Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a display diagonal of 3". That's 0.3" larger than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (3"). Read more

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

50% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 230,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (460,000 pixels).
