Reasons For

10 Reasons For
0.099999999999998MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, however the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (0.099999999999998MP 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.

23x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has an optical zoom of 28x, however the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (23x 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.

Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 3.1 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S2800 (3.2).
80% longer maximum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 630mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 500mm longer than the Nikon Coolpix S2800 (130mm).
Shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a minimum focal length of 22.5mm, but the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is a 26mm minimum focal length digital camera (3.5mm longer).
Slightly larger screen size Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a screen size of 3", however the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Slightly wider field of view Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a field of view of 100%, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is only a 98% field of view digital camera (2% narrower).
230,000 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a display resolution of 460,000 pixels, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower).
Three more supported batteries Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has four supported batteries, however the Nikon Coolpix S2800 only has one supported battery.
One hundred and twenty more shots per battery charge Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a digital camera that takes 370.00 shots per battery charge, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S2800 only takes 250.00 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.

3 Reasons For
2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S2800 has a digital zoom of 4x, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 2x 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.

Slightly smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S2800 has a maximum aperture of 6.5, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 5.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.6 bigger).
A lot higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S2800 has a maximum ISO speed of 3,200, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower).
