Reasons For

7 Reasons For
19x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has an optical zoom of 65x, but the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is only a 46x optical zoom digital camera (19x 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.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has a digital zoom of 4x, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x 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.

20% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 1,365mm. That's 261mm longer than the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 (1,104mm).
3mm shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is a 21mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera (3mm longer).
A lot longer slowest camera shutter speed Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has a slowest camera shutter speed of 15s, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is only an 8s maximum shutter speed digital camera (7s shorter). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

Slightly wider field of view Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has a field of view of 100%, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is only a 97% field of view digital camera (3% narrower).
Fourty more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS takes 340.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, however the Fujifilm FinePix S8500 only takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

7 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is a 16.2MP digital camera. That's 0.099999999999998MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (16.2MP). 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.

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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is 2.9 minimum aperture, but the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is a 3.4 minimum aperture digital camera (0.5 larger).
Higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is 12,800 maximum ISO speed. That's 6,400 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (12,800).
Higher motion JPEG frame rate Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is a 60fps JPEG frame rate digital camera. That's 30fps higher than the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (60fps).
459,078 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8500 is a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 459,078 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (460,000 pixels).
30g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8500 has a weight of 577g, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is a 607g digital camera (30g 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.

Four number of batteries supporteds Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8500 has four number of batteries supporteds, however the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS only has one number of batteries supported.
