Reasons For

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90
4 Reasons For
0.7 Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a 2.8 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 is a 3.5 minimum aperture digital camera (0.7 larger).

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.

Touchscreen
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 has a touchscreen, whereas the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 does not.

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
12% Higher Display Resolution
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a 1,040,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 118,400 pixels higher than the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 (921,600 pixels).

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.

Better Brand
Panasonic digital cameras have an average rating of 87.4%, but Sony has an average rating of 83.5%.
6 Reasons For
6.1MP Higher Megapixels
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 has a megapixels of 18.2MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (6.1MP 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
Bigger Optical Zoom
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 has an optical zoom of 30x, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is only a 24x optical zoom digital camera (6x 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
Significantly Bigger Digital Zoom
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 has a digital zoom of 120x, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 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
2x Lighter
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 is a 218g digital camera. That's 422g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (640g).

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
10 More Battery Life
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 takes 390 battery life, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 only takes 380 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
Near Field Communication (NFC)
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX90 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.
