Reasons For

12 Reasons For
Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a digital zoom of 2x, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a unknownx 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.

Vastly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a maximum aperture of 11, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a unknown maximum aperture digital camera (11 bigger).
Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm X30 is a 2 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 1.4 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (3.4).
6,400 higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a maximum ISO speed of 12,800, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 lower).
25 smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a minimum ISO speed of 100, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 125 minimum ISO speed digital camera (25 bigger).
Significantly longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
The Fujifilm X30 is a 30s maximum shutter speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 4s maximum shutter speed digital camera (26s shorter). Read more

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

35MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has an internal memory of 55MB, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 20MB internal memory digital camera (35MB smaller).
A little wider field of view Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a field of view of 100%, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a 99% field of view digital camera (1% narrower).
0.39" larger viewfinder screen size Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a viewfinder screen size of 0.39", whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a unknown" viewfinder screen size digital camera (0.39" smaller).
Higher lens magnification ratio Edit
The Fujifilm X30 has a lens magnification ratio of 0.65x, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a unknownx lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.65x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Bigger eye relief Edit
Fujifilm X30 is 17.5mm Eye relief. That's 17.5mm bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (unknownmm). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Two hundred and sixty more shots per battery charge Edit
The Fujifilm X30 is a digital camera that takes 470.00 shots per battery charge, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 only takes 210.00 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
25% higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Fujifilm X30 (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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 20x optical zoom digital camera. That's 16x bigger than the Fujifilm X30 (20x). 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.

The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a maximum focal length of 500mm, whereas the Fujifilm X30 is only a 112mm maximum focal length digital camera (388mm shorter).

20% narrower Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a width of 99.5mm. That's 19.2mm narrower than the Fujifilm X30 (99.5mm).
