Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 30x optical zoom digital camera. That's 6x bigger than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (24x). 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.

49% smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 5.8 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 2.8 smaller than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (3).
17% longer maximum focal length Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 has a maximum focal length of 720mm, however the Olympus Stylus SH-1 is only a 600mm maximum focal length digital camera (120mm shorter).
5% shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1mm shorter than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (25mm).
25% smaller minimum ISO speed Edit

4 Reasons For
25% higher megapixel count Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-1 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX510 (16MP). 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.

50% higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-1 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 3,200 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX510 (6,400).
