6 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 20MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX400 is (20MP). 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.

20% more total megapixels Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 20.5MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP more than the Canon PowerShot SX400 is (20.5MP).
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 40x optical zoom digital camera. That's 10x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX400 is (40x). 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.

Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
Canon PowerShot SX410 is is 6.3 maximum aperture. That's 0.5 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX400 is (6.3).
25% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 960mm, however the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is only a 720mm maximum focal length digital camera (240mm shorter).
5g lighter Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has a weight of 308g, however the Canon PowerShot SX400 is is a 313g digital camera (5g 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.
