Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.1MP). 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.

24% more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 16.76MP digital camera. That's 3.96MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.8MP).
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is an 83x optical zoom digital camera. That's 53x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (30x). 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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (2x). 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.

0.5 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P900 is a 2.8 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera (0.5 larger).
