Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has a megapixel count of 20.2MP, but the Medion Life E44050 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.

25% more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has a total megapixel count of 21.1MP, however the Medion Life E44050 is only a 16MP digital camera (5.1MP less).

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.

Marginally smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has a maximum aperture of 6.9, but the Medion Life E44050 is only a 6.4 maximum aperture digital camera (0.5 bigger).

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.

Smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Medion Life E44050 has a minimum aperture of 3.2, but the Canon SX610 HS is a 3.8 minimum aperture digital camera (0.6 larger).
