Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is has an image stabilizer, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 does not. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 40x optical zoom digital camera. That's 12x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (28x). 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 Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (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.

Smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 6.3 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 0.4 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (5.9).
330mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Canon PowerShot SX410 is is 960mm maximum focal length, but the Nikon Coolpix L340 is only a 630mm maximum focal length digital camera (330mm shorter).
5 Reasons For
Slightly higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixel of 20.2MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is only a 20MP digital camera (0.2MP lower). 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.

10% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a minimum aperture number of 3.1. That's 0.3 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX410 is (3.1).
Marginally shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 22.5mm, however the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera (1.5mm longer).
A lot higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Nikon Coolpix L340 is 460,000 pixels display resolution, but the Canon PowerShot SX410 is is only a 230,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower).
One hundred and eighty-five more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard) on the Nikon Coolpix L340 is 370.00, but the Canon PowerShot SX410 is only takes 185.00 battery life (CIPA standard). 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.

Reasons Against

6 Reasons Against
Lower megapixel Edit
