8 Reasons For
13% higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 is an 18.2MP digital camera. That's 2.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (18.2MP). 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.

Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 is a 40x digital zoom digital camera. That's 36x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (40x). 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.

50% higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
Sony DSC-WX350 is 12,800 maximum ISO speed. That's 6,400 higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (12,800).
57% smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 45 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (80).
1% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 is a 460,800 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 800 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (460,800 pixels).
24g lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 has a weight of 137g, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 161g digital camera (24g 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.

470.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Sony DSC-WX350 is a digital camera that takes 470.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Nikon Coolpix S7000 only takes 210.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

Two more awards
The Sony DSC-WX350 has 3 awards from expert review sites, however the Nikon Coolpix S7000 has 1 award.
