Reasons For

12 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.1MP). Read more

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.

24% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 16.76MP digital camera. That's 3.96MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.8MP).
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is an 83x optical zoom digital camera. That's 53x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (30x). Read more

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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (2x). Read more

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.

0.5 smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 has a minimum aperture of 2.8, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (0.5 larger).
1,280mm longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 has a maximum focal length of 2,000mm, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is only a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera (1,280mm shorter).
One more aspheric element Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 has six aspheric elements, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 only has five aspheric elements.
Vastly higher display resolution Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 920,998.96 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (1.04 pixels).
GPS Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 has a GPS, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 does not have a GPS. Read more

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.

360.00 shots per battery charge Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 takes 360.00 shots per battery charge, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 only takes 300.00 shots per battery charge. Read more

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.
