Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 16.4MP digital camera. That's 0.4MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (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.

1.5 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is an 8 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 1.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (6.5).
Smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is 100 minimum ISO speed. That's 25 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (125).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 96MB internal memory digital camera. That's 76MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (20MB).
Three times lighter Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has a weight of 162g, but the Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 538g digital camera (376g heavier). Read more

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Cheaper by $130
The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 costs $130 less than the Nikon Coolpix L840.
12 Reasons For
87% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 38x optical zoom digital camera. That's 33x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (38x). 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 Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (4x). 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.

0.9 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 3 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 3.9 minimum aperture digital camera (0.9 larger).
