Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6600 is a 12x optical zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Sony DSC-WX220 (10x). 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.

Longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6600 has a maximum camera shutter speed of 4s. That's 3s longer than the Sony DSC-WX220 (1s). Read more

11 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony DSC-WX220 is an 18.2MP digital camera. That's 2.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S6600 (18.2MP). 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.
