Reasons For

Nikon Coolpix P610 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
8 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Nikon Coolpix P610 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (12.1MP).

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 Optical Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix P610 is a 60x optical zoom digital camera. That's 36x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (24x).

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
720mm Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 1,440mm, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is only a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera (720mm 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Nikon Coolpix P610 is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1mm shorter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (25mm).

'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
GPS (satellite)
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has a GPS (satellite), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 does not have a GPS (satellite).

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Read more Read less | Edit
Near Field Communication (NFC)
The Nikon Coolpix P610 supports Near Field Communication (NFC), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 does not support Near Field Communication (NFC).

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a communication technology used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets.

Cameras with NFC tech installed will be able to easily send photos to smartphones or tablets without the need for wires.

Better Chip.de Review Score
Chip.de's Nikon Coolpix P610 review gave it a score of 78%, but the rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 was only 0% from the same site.
12 Reasons For
Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is 2.8 minimum aperture. That's 0.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix P610 (3.3).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 has a touchscreen, but the Nikon Coolpix P610 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
119,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 has a display resolution of 1,040,000 pixels, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 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
20 More Battery Life
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a digital camera that takes 380 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P610 only takes 360 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.
