Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a megapixel count of 16.1MP, but the Nikon Coolpix S33 is only a 13.2MP digital camera (2.9MP lower). 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.

14% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a total megapixel count of 16.44MP, however the Nikon Coolpix S33 is only a 14.17MP digital camera (2.27MP less).
2x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has an optical zoom of 5x, but the Nikon Coolpix S33 is only a 3x optical zoom digital camera (2x smaller). 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.

0.6 smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a maximum aperture of 6.5, but the Nikon Coolpix S33 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.6 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 is a 3.2 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S33 (3.3).
31% longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 is a 130mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 40mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix S33 (90mm).
4mm shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a minimum focal length of 26mm, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S33 is a 30mm minimum focal length digital camera (4mm longer).
25% smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L31 has a minimum ISO speed of 80, however the Nikon Coolpix S33 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera (20 bigger).
One more supported battery Edit
The number of supported batteries on the Nikon Coolpix L31 is two, but the Nikon Coolpix S33 only has one supported battery.
4 Reasons For
Image stabiliser Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S33 has an image stabiliser, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

Bigger internal memory Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S33 is a 25MB internal memory digital camera. That's 8MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L31 (25MB).
HDMI port Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S33 has an HDMI port, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 does not have an HDMI port. Read more

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

220.00 shots per battery charge Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S33 takes 220.00 shots per battery charge, however the Nikon Coolpix L31 only takes 200.00 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.
