Reasons For

8 Reasons For
1% higher megapixel Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 16.15MP digital camera. That's 0.15MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S9900 (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.

29% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Kodak Pixpro AZ421 is a 42x optical zoom digital camera. That's 12x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S9900 (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.
