Reasons For

17 Reasons For
4.2MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.

More total megapixel count Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has a total megapixel count of 21.1MP, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 16.76MP digital camera (4.34MP less).

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.
