3 Reasons For
4.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, whereas the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-860 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.1MP 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.

£54 cheaper
The Sony DSC-H400 costs £54.09 less than the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-860.
