250.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard)s on the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is 250.00, but the Sony DSC-W800 only takes 200.00 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.

5 Reasons For
Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 40x digital zoom digital camera. That's 36x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S2800 (40x). 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.

14% bigger internal memory Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 29MB internal memory digital camera. That's 4MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S2800 (29MB).
1% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 is a 230,400 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 400 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix S2800 (230,400 pixels).
11g lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-W800 has a weight of 109g, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S2800 is a 120g digital camera (11g 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.
