Reasons For

9 Reasons For
81% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 42x optical zoom digital camera. That's 33.7x bigger than the Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ (8.3x). 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.

25% smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 20 smaller than the Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ (100).

Vastly lighter Edit

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

6 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 16.15MP digital camera (4.05MP 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.

29x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ has a digital zoom of 33x, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (29x 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.

Hugely higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ has a maximum ISO speed of 25,600, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 lower).

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Significantly higher display resolution Edit
The Sony Cybershot RX10 Ⅱ has a display resolution of 1,228,800 pixels, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (998,800 pixels lower).
