Reasons For

6 Reasons For
A bit higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a megapixel count of 16.2MP, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P600 is only a 16.1MP digital camera (0.099999999999998MP 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.

Marginally more total megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a total megapixel count of 16.79MP, but the Nikon Coolpix P600 is only a 16.7MP digital camera (0.09MP less).
Significantly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a maximum aperture of 19, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P600 is only a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera (12.5 bigger).
14% smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 2.9 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.4 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix P600 (3.3).
Three more supported batteries Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a four supported battery digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P600 only has one supported battery.
One hundred and seventy more shots per battery charge Edit
The number of shots per battery charge on the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is 500.00, but the Nikon Coolpix P600 only takes 330.00 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.

10 Reasons For
10x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has an optical zoom of 60x, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 50x optical zoom digital camera (10x 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.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a digital zoom of 4x, however the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller). 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.

Longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 1,440mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 240mm longer than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (1,440mm).
9,600 higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a maximum ISO speed of 12,800, however the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 lower).
3x smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a minimum ISO speed of 100, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 400 minimum ISO speed digital camera (300 bigger).
A lot longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
Nikon Coolpix P600 is 15s maximum shutter speed, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only an 8s maximum shutter speed digital camera (7s shorter). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

18MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has an internal memory of 56MB, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 38MB internal memory digital camera (18MB smaller).
Slightly wider field of view Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a field of view of 100%, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 97% field of view digital camera (3% narrower).
461,000 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a display resolution of 921,000 pixels, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels lower).
3% lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is a 565g digital camera. That's 12g lighter than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (565g). Read more

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.
