Significantly lighter Edit

4 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ251 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.1MP 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.

Twenty more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard), however the Kodak Pixpro AZ251 only takes 280.00 battery life (CIPA standard). 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.

Available from 2 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
User reviews are marginally better
