Reasons For

Canon PowerShot SX610 HS Nikon Coolpix S7000
8 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has a megapixels of 20.2MP, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 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
0.4 Larger Maximum Aperture Number
Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is 6.9 maximum aperture, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera (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 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
462,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has a display resolution of 922,000 pixels, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (462,000 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
Histogram
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS features histogram, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 does not feature histogram.

A histogram is a graphical representation of the brightness levels across an image. It shows the image split into 3 broad brightness bands: 'shadow', 'midtone' or 'highlights', and the amount of pixels that fall into each band.

While it takes a while to gain the relevant knowledge, viewing the histogram for an image is a quick way of seeing whether any parts of the image you've just taken are over or under exposed, allowing you to modify the settings on the camera or your position to compensate in future shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
60 More Battery Life
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS takes 270 battery life, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
$134 Cheaper
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is $134.01 cheaper than the Nikon Coolpix S7000.
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.9%, but Nikon has an average rating of 88.5%.
8 Reasons For
2x Bigger Optical Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has an optical zoom of 20x, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is only an 18x 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
12% Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a minimum aperture number of 3.4. That's 0.4 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS (3.8).

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
10% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Nikon Coolpix S7000 is 500mm maximum focal length. That's 50mm longer than the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS (450mm).

'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
3,200 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 6,400, however the Canon PowerShot SX610 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
Touchscreen
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a touchscreen, however the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS does not have a touchscreen.

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Read more Read less | Edit
4% Lighter
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 161g digital camera. That's 6g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS (167g).

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.
