Reasons For

3 Reasons For
15.9 smaller maximum aperture number Edit

52% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 1,200mm. That's 615mm longer than the Nikon D810 (585mm).

8 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D810 is a 36MP digital camera. That's 19.8MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (36MP). 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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon D810 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (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.

Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Nikon D810 is 22.5mm minimum focal length. That's 1.5mm shorter than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (22.5mm).
24% bigger internal memory Edit
The Nikon D810 is a 50MB internal memory digital camera. That's 12MB bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (50MB).
7% larger display diagonal Edit
The Nikon D810 has a display diagonal of 3.2". That's 0.2" larger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (3.2"). 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.

43% wider field of view Edit
The Nikon D810 is a 170% field of view digital camera. That's 73% wider than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (170%).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon D810 is a 1,228,800 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 768,800 pixels higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 (1,228,800 pixels).
147g lighter Edit
The Nikon D810 has a weight of 430g, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 is a 577g digital camera (147g 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.
