Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has an image stabilizer, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 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.

A lot bigger optical zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has an optical zoom of 42x, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 28x optical zoom digital camera (14x smaller). 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.

2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a digital zoom of 4x, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 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.

Slightly smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a maximum aperture number of 6, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.1 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is 2.6 minimum aperture. That's 0.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (3.1).
Longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 1,008mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 378mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (630mm).
A lot higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is 3,200 maximum ISO speed, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower).
26s longer slowest camera shutter speed Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 30s maximum shutter speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 4s maximum shutter speed digital camera (26s shorter). Read more

7 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.05MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (20.2MP). 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.

20% more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.48MP digital camera. That's 4.04MP more than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (20.48MP).
Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 22.5mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (22.5mm).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 43MB internal memory digital camera. That's 35MB bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (43MB).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a display resolution (numeric) of 460,000 pixels. That's 230,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (460,000 pixels).
Four number of batteries supporteds Edit
The number of number of batteries supporteds on the Nikon Coolpix L340 is four, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only has one number of batteries supported.
370.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 takes 370.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, however 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.
