Nikon D3400 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300
10 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Nikon D3400 has a megapixels of 24.2MP, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is only an 18.2MP digital camera (6MP 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
Bluetooth
The Nikon D3400 features bluetooth, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 does not.

Bluetooth is a communication standard 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, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

$56 Cheaper
The Nikon D3400 is $56.19 cheaper than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300.
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.
Three Years Newer

Five More Awards
The Nikon D3400 has received 7 awards, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 has received 2 awards.

Based on 55 reviews, the average expert review score of the Nikon D3400 is 77%, whereas the average rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is 75% (based on 8 reviews).
User Reviews Are Appreciably Better

7 Reasons For
290g Lighter
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 has a weight of 105g, but the Nikon D3400 is a 395g digital camera (290g 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
Smile Detection
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 features smile detection, however the Nikon D3400 does not.

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Read more Read less | Edit
Full HD Video
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 supports Full HD video, but the Nikon D3400 does not support this feature.

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Read more Read less | Edit
Multi Burst Mode
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 features multi burst mode, but the Nikon D3400 does not feature this benefit.

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 supports Wi-Fi, however the Nikon D3400 does not support this feature.

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-in Flash
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 has a built-in flash, whereas the Nikon D3400 does not.

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

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.

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.

Wi-Fi

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.
