Reasons For

Nikon Coolpix P610 Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V
7 Reasons For
A Lot Bigger Optical Zoom
The Nikon Coolpix P610 has an optical zoom of 60x, but the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V is only a 30x optical zoom digital camera (30x 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.

7% Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Nikon Coolpix P610 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.2 smaller than the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V (3.5).

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.

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.5%, but Sony has an average rating of 87.5%.

Better Ephotozine Review Score

10 Reasons For
2.2MP Higher Megapixels
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V has a megapixels of 18.2MP, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 16MP digital camera (2.2MP 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
Vastly Bigger Digital Zoom
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V has a digital zoom of 120x, however the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (116x smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
6,400 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12,800, however the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 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
600 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V has a display resolution of 921,600 pixels, but the Nikon Coolpix P610 is only a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (600 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
30 More Battery Life
The number of battery life on the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90V is 390, but 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.
