Reasons For

7 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L32 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, however the Samsung WB35F is only a 16.2MP digital camera (3.9MP 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.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L32 has a digital zoom of 4x, but the Samsung WB35F is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x 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.

0.2 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L32 has a maximum aperture number of 6.5, however the Samsung WB35F is only a 6.3 maximum aperture digital camera (0.2 bigger).
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L32 has a display diagonal of 3", however the Samsung WB35F is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller). 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.

7 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Samsung WB35F has an image stabilizer, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L32 does not. 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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Samsung WB35F is a 12x optical zoom digital camera. That's 7x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L32 (12x). 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.

A little smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Samsung WB35F is a 3.1 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L32 is a 3.2 minimum aperture digital camera (0.1 larger).
158mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Samsung WB35F has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 288mm, however the Nikon Coolpix L32 is only a 130mm maximum focal length digital camera (158mm shorter).
Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Samsung WB35F is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 2mm shorter than the Nikon Coolpix L32 (24mm).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Samsung WB35F is a 30MB internal memory digital camera. That's 5MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L32 (30MB).
14% lighter Edit
The Samsung WB35F has a weight of 144g, however the Nikon Coolpix L32 is a 164g digital camera (20g 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.
