Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has an image stabilizer, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840, but the Sony DSC-H300 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.

17% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a 42x optical zoom digital camera, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421. That's 4x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (35x) and 7x bigger than the Sony DSC-H300 (35x). 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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421. That's 2x bigger than the Sony DSC-H300 (2x). 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.

Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has a maximum aperture number of 6, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421. That's 0.1 smaller than the Sony DSC-H300 (5.9).
153mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a 1,008mm maximum focal length digital camera (as does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421), whereas the Nikon Coolpix L840 is only an 855mm maximum focal length digital camera (153mm shorter) and the Sony DSC-H300 is only a 954mm maximum focal length digital camera (54mm shorter).
PictBridge Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS supports PictBridge, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840, however the Sony DSC-H300 does not.
HDMI Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has an HDMI (as do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840), whereas the Sony DSC-H300 does not have an HDMI. Read more

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

97g lighter Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has a weight of 441g, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 454g digital camera (13g heavier), the Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 538g digital camera (97g heavier) and the Sony DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (54g 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.

210.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a digital camera that takes 210.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only takes 200.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

We do not know the number of battery life (CIPA standard) taken by the Nikon Coolpix L840 or the Sony DSC-H300. It is possible that they do not take any battery life (CIPA standard).

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.

Expert reviews are marginally better
Based on 6 expert reviews, the Nikon Coolpix L840 has an average review score of 76%, but the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has an average rating of 72% (based on 14 reviews) and the Sony DSC-H300 has an average rating of 60% (based on 1 review).
2 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, but the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS and the Nikon Coolpix L840 are both only 16MP digital cameras (4.1MP lower) and the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 16.15MP digital camera (3.95MP 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.

More popular
The Sony DSC-H300 is a more popular choice amongst buyers. It ranks No. 541 by sales volume in our digital cameras, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L840 ranks No. 2970.
