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.

22% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 960mm. That's 210mm longer than the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS (750mm).
A little shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).
25% bigger combined zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a combined zoom of 160x, however the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is only a 120x combined zoom digital camera (40x smaller).
9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is a 21.1MP digital camera. That's 1.1MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (21.1MP). 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.

More total megapixels Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is a 21.1MP digital camera. That's 0.6MP more than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (21.1MP).
Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS has a maximum aperture number of 6.9. That's 0.6 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (6.9).
A bit smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is 3.2 minimum aperture, but the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 3.4 minimum aperture digital camera (0.2 larger).
Higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is 3,200 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,600 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (3,200).
20 smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 20 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (80).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is a 922,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 692,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (922,000 pixels).
63g lighter Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS has a weight of 245g, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 308g digital camera (63g 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.

315.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX710 HS is a digital camera that takes 315.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX410 is only takes 185.00 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.
