Reasons For

2 Reasons For
A lot bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has an optical zoom of 20x, however the Sony DSC-QX10 is only a 10x 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.

HDMI port Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has an HDMI port, whereas the Sony DSC-QX10 does not. 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.

4 Reasons For
2.9MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is an 18.9MP digital camera. That's 2.9MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (18.9MP). 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.

0.1 smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 has a minimum aperture of 3.3, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 3.4 minimum aperture digital camera (0.1 larger).
50% higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 6,400 higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (12,800).
Smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Sony DSC-QX10 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 25 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (100).
