Reasons For

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Nikon Coolpix L840
8 Reasons For
24% Bigger Optical Zoom
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS has an optical zoom of 50x, however the Nikon Coolpix L840 is only a 38x optical zoom digital camera (12x 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
29% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a 1,200mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 345mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (855mm).

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
96g Lighter
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a 442g digital camera. That's 96g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix L840 (538g).

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.

The more retailers stock this digital camera, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
More Popular
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a more popular choice amongst buyers.
One More Awards
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS has 3 awards, however the Nikon Coolpix L840 has 2 awards.
User Reviews Are Marginally Better
Based on 936 reviews, the average user review score of the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is 91%, but the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix L840 is 89% (based on 918 reviews).
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.9%, however Nikon has an average rating of 88.5%.
9 Reasons For
0.4 Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 3 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.4 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS (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
1.5mm Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 22.5mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS 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
3,200 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is only a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Vari-Angle LCD Display
The Nikon Coolpix L840 has a vari-angle LCD display, but the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS does not.

A 'vari-angle display' on a digital camera means that the display can be adjusted so it can be viewed effectively from many different angles.

This is a helpful addition because it means you won't have to hold the camera directly in front of your face in order to view the display successfully - helpful if you're shooting from unusual angles.

Read more Read less | Edit
460,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon Coolpix L840 has a display resolution of 921,000 pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is only a 461,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (460,000 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
380 More Battery Life
The Nikon Coolpix L840 takes 590 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS only takes 210 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.

$90 Cheaper
The Nikon Coolpix L840 is $90 cheaper than the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS.

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.
