Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 30x optical zoom digital camera. That's 6x bigger than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (24x). 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.

49% smaller maximum aperture number Edit
Canon PowerShot SX510 is 5.8 maximum aperture. That's 2.8 smaller than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (3).
17% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 720mm, however the Olympus Stylus SH-1 is only a 600mm maximum focal length digital camera (120mm shorter).
5% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1mm shorter than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (25mm).
1% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX510 has a display resolution (numeric) of 461,000 pixels. That's 1,000 pixels higher than the Olympus Stylus SH-1 (460,000 pixels).
3 Reasons For
25% higher megapixel Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-1 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX510 (16MP). 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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Olympus Stylus SH-1 is 3 minimum aperture, but the Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 3.4 minimum aperture digital camera (0.4 larger).
A lot lighter Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-1 has a weight of 271g, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX510 is a 349g digital camera (78g 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.
