Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has an image stabilizer, whereas the Sony DSC-H300 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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has an optical zoom of 40x, but the Sony DSC-H300 is only a 35x optical zoom digital camera (5x 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.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a digital zoom of 4x, whereas the Sony DSC-H300 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.

0.4 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
Canon PowerShot SX410 is is 6.3 maximum aperture, but the Sony DSC-H300 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.4 bigger).
1% 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 6mm longer than the Sony DSC-H300 (954mm).
3.2mm shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-H300 is a 27.2mm minimum focal length digital camera (3.2mm longer).
Vastly longer slowest camera shutter speed Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a slowest camera shutter speed of 15s, however the Sony DSC-H300 is only a 2s maximum shutter speed digital camera (13s shorter). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

PictBridge Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is supports pictBridge, but the Sony DSC-H300 does not support pictBridge.
61% lighter Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 308g digital camera. That's 187g lighter than the Sony DSC-H300 (495g). 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.

4 Reasons For
0.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is only a 20MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Sony DSC-H300 is 3 minimum aperture. That's 0.4 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (3).
1,600 higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
Sony DSC-H300 is 3,200 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower).
20 smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera (20 bigger).
