Reasons For

6 Reasons For
4MP higher megapixel Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 20MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (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.

32% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 35x optical zoom digital camera. That's 11x bigger than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (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.

20% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (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.

72% bigger internal memory Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 128MB internal memory digital camera. That's 91MB bigger than the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (37MB).

The Medion Life X44022 costs £158.10 less than the Olympus Stylus SH-2.
