Reasons For

Canon PowerShot SX400 IS Nikon Coolpix L340
5 Reasons For
Image Stabilizer
The Canon PowerShot SX400 is has an image stabilizer, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 does not have an image stabilizer.

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.

Marginally Bigger Optical Zoom
The Canon PowerShot SX400 is has an optical zoom of 30x, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 28x optical zoom digital camera (2x smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
90mm Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Canon PowerShot SX400 is is a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 90mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (630mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camera is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Expert Reviews Are a Bit Better
The average expert review score of the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is 69%, but the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix L340 is 67% (based on 4 reviews).
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.9%, however Nikon has an average rating of 88.5%.
10 Reasons For
21% Higher Megapixels
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixels of 20.2MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is only a 16MP digital camera (4.2MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 3.1 minimum aperture. That's 0.3 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX400 is (3.4).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
0.1 Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a maximum aperture number of 5.9, however the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is only a 5.8 maximum aperture digital camera (0.1 smaller).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
1.5mm Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 22.5mm minimum focal length, but the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera (1.5mm longer).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camera can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
230,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a display resolution of 460,000 pixels, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS (satellite)
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a GPS (satellite), however the Canon PowerShot SX400 is does not have a GPS (satellite).

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Read more Read less | Edit
770 More Battery Life
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a digital camera that takes 960 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX400 is only takes 190 battery life.

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.
