Two hundred and sixty more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Fujifilm X30 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.

8 Reasons For
25% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Fujifilm X30 (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 Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 20x optical zoom digital camera. That's 16x bigger than the Fujifilm X30 (20x). 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.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm X30 (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.

388mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a 500mm maximum focal length digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm X30 is only a 112mm maximum focal length digital camera (388mm shorter).
Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Nikon Coolpix S7000 is 25mm minimum focal length. That's 3mm shorter than the Fujifilm X30 (25mm).
Significantly lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 has a weight of 161g, whereas the Fujifilm X30 is a 383g digital camera (222g 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.

Considerably better expert reviews
The average expert review score of the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is 77% based on 6 reviews, but the average rating of the Fujifilm X30 is 64% (based on 2 reviews).
Better user reviews
The average user review score of the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is 94% based on 98 reviews, but the average rating of the Fujifilm X30 is 88% (based on 56 reviews).
