Canon Powershot SX60 HS Nikon Coolpix P900
15 Reasons For
250g Lighter
The Canon Powershot SX60 HS has a weight of 649, however the Nikon Coolpix P900 is an 899g digital camera (250g 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Megapixels
The Canon Powershot SX60 HS is a 16.8 digital camera. That's 0.8MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix P900 (16MP).

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
Shock Resistant
The Canon Powershot SX60 HS has a shock resistant, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P900 does not.

A shock resistant digital camera is one that is protected against sudden shocks and knocks, such as from the camera being dropped or knocked out of your hand.

Having a shock resistant digital camera means that there is less chance of the camera being damaged or broken due to accidents.

One thing it lacks is the ability to capture lots of light ? something that's been highlighted by two recent bridge cameras from Panasonic. First came the Panasonic FZ200 and its bright f/2.8 aperture. Then there's the Panasonic FZ1000 with its f/2.8-4 ap......

The battle of the bridge cameras used to be a two-horse race between the Canon SX50 HS's huge zoom and the Panasonic FZ200's constant f/2.8 aperture. However, with the Canon's focus deteriorating at the long end of its zoom, the Panasonic took a clear lea......

That zoom is the headline feature of course, but aside from that, what does the Nikon Coolpix P900 offer? Essentially, the P900 is what's commonly referred to as a "Bridge" camera in the camera industry, because it sits inbetween traditional compacts and......
Reasonable sharpness over a huge zoom range
Wi-Fi and GPS
The 2000mm zoom position is unwieldy
Too much reliance on menu navigation
Odd automatic ISO settings
There are various ways to evaluate the P900. To match its 2,000mm equivalent focal length by any other means would involve spending more than £5,000 on a cropped-sensor SLR, 800mm lens and 2x teleconverter. However, take the P900's relatively low 16-megap......

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.

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.

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.

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.
