Reasons For

5 Reasons For
27.1x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 has an optical zoom of 30x, but the Sony DSC-RX100M3 is only a 2.9x optical zoom digital camera (27.1x 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.

90% longer maximum focal length Edit
The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 647mm longer than the Sony DSC-RX100M3 (73mm).
1mm shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 has a minimum focal length of 24mm, whereas the Sony DSC-RX100M3 is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).
PictBridge Edit
The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 supports PictBridge, but the Sony DSC-RX100M3 does not support PictBridge.
£57 cheaper
The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is £57.30 cheaper than the Sony DSC-RX100M3.
14 Reasons For
6.1MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 has a megapixel count of 20.1MP, however the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is only a 14MP digital camera (6.1MP 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.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 has a digital zoom of 11x, but the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is only a 6.7x digital zoom digital camera (4.3x 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.

7.9 smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 has a maximum aperture of 11, however the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is only a 3.1 maximum aperture digital camera (7.9 bigger).

Significantly longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 is a 30s maximum shutter speed digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is only an 8s maximum shutter speed digital camera (22s shorter). Read more

768,800 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 has a display resolution of 1,228,800 pixels, whereas the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (768,800 pixels lower).
79% lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-RX100M3 is a 263g digital camera. That's 207g lighter than the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 (263g). 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.

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.
