Reasons For

1 Reason For
50% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon EOS 5D is a 10x optical zoom digital camera. That's 5x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix AX550 (). 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.

2 Reasons For
6MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix AX550 has a megapixel count of 16MP, however the Canon EOS 5D is only a 12.8MP digital camera (3.2MP lower) and the HP c150w is only a 10MP digital camera (6MP 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 larger screen size Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix AX550 has a screen size of 2.7", however the Canon EOS 5D is only a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller) and the HP c150w is only a 1.8" screen digital camera (0.9" 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.

3 Reasons For
83% bigger digital zoom Edit
The HP c150w is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 3.29x bigger than the Canon EOS 5D (4x). 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.

24GB larger maximum memory card size Edit
The HP c150w has a maximum memory card size of 32GB, whereas the Canon EOS 5D is only an 8GB maximum memory card size digital camera (24GB smaller).
683g lighter Edit
The HP c150w has a weight of 127g, however the Canon EOS 5D is an 810g digital camera (683g heavier). Read more

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.
