Reasons For

Canon PowerShot SX520 HS Kodak Pixpro AZ421 Nikon Coolpix L840 Sony Cybershot DSC-H300
9 Reasons For
Image Stabilizer
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has an image stabilizer, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840, but the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 does not.

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
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 (38x) and 7x bigger than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (35x).

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
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840. That's 2x bigger than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (2x).

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.

153mm Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
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 Cybershot DSC-H300 is only a 954mm maximum focal length digital camera (54mm shorter).

'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.

PictBridge
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS supports PictBridge, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840, however the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 does not.

'PictBridge' is a system that allows the camera to wirelessly connect directly to a printer, without needing to go through a computer connection first.

PictBridge allows users to print off photos far more easily and faster by printing directly from the device, rather than having to download the photos to a PC before printing.

HDMI
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has an HDMI (as do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Nikon Coolpix L840), whereas the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 does not have an HDMI.

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
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 Cybershot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (54g heavier).

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.

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.9%, however Kodak has an average rating of 76.4%, Nikon has an average rating of 88.5% and Sony has an average rating of 87.5%.

31% Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 2.6 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.8 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS (3.4) and 0.4 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L840 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (3).

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.

16% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 1,008mm, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS. That's 153mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (855mm) and 54mm longer than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (954mm).

'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.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

0.6 Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix L840 has a maximum aperture number of 6.5, however the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 are both only 6 maximum aperture digital cameras (0.5 smaller) and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.6 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.

Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Nikon Coolpix L840 is 22.5mm minimum focal length, but the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 are both 24mm minimum focal length digital cameras (1.5mm longer) and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 is a 27.2mm minimum focal length digital camera (4.7mm 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.

3,200 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
Nikon Coolpix L840 is 6,400 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 are all only 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (3,200 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

691,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon Coolpix L840 has a display resolution of 921,000 pixels, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is only a 461,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (460,000 pixels lower), the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 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.

390 More Battery Life
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a digital camera that takes 590 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS only takes 210 battery life and the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 only takes 200 battery life.

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300. It is possible that it does not take any 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.

3 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 has a megapixels 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).

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.

13 Reasons Against
Lower Megapixels
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is a 16MP digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L840. That's 0.15MP lower than the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 (16.15MP) and 4.1MP lower than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (20.1MP).

Larger Minimum Aperture Number
Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is 3.4 minimum aperture, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 2.6 minimum aperture digital camera (0.8 smaller) and the Nikon Coolpix L840 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 are both 3 minimum aperture digital cameras (0.4 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 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.

Smaller Maximum Aperture Number
The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has a maximum aperture number of 6, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421. That's 0.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (6.5) and 0.1 larger than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (5.9).

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.

Longer Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is 24mm minimum focal length, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ421. That's 1.5mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (22.5mm) and 3.2mm shorter than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (27.2mm).

'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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity
Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is only 3,200 maximum ISO speed, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300. That's 3,200 lower than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (6,400).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

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.

Key Features

Megapixels

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.

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.

Optical Zoom

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.

Digital Zoom

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.

Minimum Aperture Number

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.

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Weight

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.
