The Canon IXUS 175 is an 8x optical zoom digital camera, and so do the Nikon Coolpix S3700 and the Sony DSC-W830. That's 3x bigger than the Sony DSC-W800 (8x). 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.

7 Reasons For
A little higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 has a megapixel count of 20.1MP (as do the Sony DSC-W800 and the Sony DSC-W830), whereas the Canon IXUS 175 is only a 20MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

A lot bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 has an optical zoom of 8x (as do the Canon IXUS 175 and the Sony DSC-W830), whereas the Sony DSC-W800 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (3x 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.

12% shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 has a minimum focal length of 25mm (as does the Sony DSC-W830), however the Canon IXUS 175 is a 28mm minimum focal length digital camera (3mm longer) and the Sony DSC-W800 is a unknownmm minimum focal length digital camera (25mm shorter).
A lot higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 has a maximum ISO speed of 3,200 (as do the Sony DSC-W800 and the Sony DSC-W830), however the Canon IXUS 175 is only a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower).
Smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 has a minimum ISO speed of 80 (as does the Sony DSC-W830), but the Canon IXUS 175 and the Sony DSC-W800 are both 100 minimum ISO speed digital cameras (20 bigger).
2.4mm thinner Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 is a 20.1mm deep digital camera, whereas the Canon IXUS 175 is a 22.1mm deep digital camera (2mm thicker), the Sony DSC-W800 is a 20.8mm deep digital camera (0.7mm thicker) and the Sony DSC-W830 is a 22.5mm deep digital camera (2.4mm thicker).
Fourty more shots per battery charge Edit
The number of shots per battery charge on the Nikon Coolpix S3700 is 240.00, but the Canon IXUS 175 only takes 220.00 shots per battery charge, the Sony DSC-W800 only takes 200.00 shots per battery charge and the Sony DSC-W830 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.

5 Reasons For
1% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 20.1MP digital camera, and so do the Nikon Coolpix S3700 and the Sony DSC-W830. That's 0.1MP higher than the Canon IXUS 175 (20.1MP). Read more

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 Sony DSC-W800 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera, and so do the Nikon Coolpix S3700 and the Sony DSC-W830. That's 1,600 higher than the Canon IXUS 175 (3,200).
Higher JPEG frame rate Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 30fps JPEG frame rate digital camera, and so does the Sony DSC-W830. That's 5fps higher than the Canon IXUS 175 (30fps) and 30fps higher than the Nikon Coolpix S3700 (30fps).

11 Reasons For
Slightly higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has a megapixel count of 20.1MP (as do the Nikon Coolpix S3700 and the Sony DSC-W800), whereas the Canon IXUS 175 is only a 20MP digital camera (0.1MP lower). Read more

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.

A bit more total megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has a total megapixel count of 20.5MP (as does the Canon IXUS 175), but the Nikon Coolpix S3700 is only a 20.48MP digital camera (0.02MP less) and the Sony DSC-W800 is only a 20MP digital camera (0.5MP less).
A lot bigger optical zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has an optical zoom of 8x (as do the Canon IXUS 175 and the Nikon Coolpix S3700), whereas the Sony DSC-W800 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (3x smaller). Read more

60x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has a digital zoom of 64x, however the Canon IXUS 175 and the Nikon Coolpix S3700 are both only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (60x smaller) and the Sony DSC-W800 is only a 40x digital zoom digital camera (24x 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.

12% shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has a minimum focal length of 25mm (as does the Nikon Coolpix S3700), however the Canon IXUS 175 is a 28mm minimum focal length digital camera (3mm longer) and the Sony DSC-W800 is a unknownmm minimum focal length digital camera (25mm shorter).
