Reasons For

3 Reasons For
0.099999999999998MP higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixel of 20.2MP, however the Sony DSC-H400 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (0.099999999999998MP lower). 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.

459,980 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-H400 is only a 20 pixels display resolution digital camera (459,980 pixels lower).
Seventy more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 is a digital camera that takes 370.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Sony DSC-H400 only takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard). 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.
