Reasons For

7 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 20MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (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.

Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX410 is is a 40x optical zoom digital camera. That's 22x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (18x). 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.
