Reasons For

Nikon Coolpix L340 Sony Cybershot DSC-H300
11 Reasons For
1% Higher Megapixels
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 0.099999999999998MP higher than the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 (20.1MP).

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
Bigger Digital Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. 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.

Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 22.5mm minimum focal length. That's 4.7mm 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
PictBridge
The Nikon Coolpix L340 supports PictBridge, however the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 does not support PictBridge.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
HDMI
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has an HDMI, 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.

5 Reasons For
7x Bigger Optical Zoom
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 has an optical zoom of 35x, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 28x optical zoom digital camera (7x 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
4% Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 has a minimum aperture number of 3. That's 0.1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (3.1).

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
Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 is 954mm maximum focal length. That's 324mm 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3,200, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 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
12MB Bigger Internal Memory
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 has an internal memory of 55MB, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 43MB internal memory digital camera (12MB smaller).

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.
