Reasons For

11 Reasons For
4.2MP higher megapixel Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a 20.2MP digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L340. That's 4.2MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (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.

Image stabilizer Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has an image stabilizer, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10, however the Nikon Coolpix L340 does not. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

More total megapixels Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a 21.1MP digital camera. That's 0.62MP more than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (16.6MP) and 4.5MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (16.6MP).
50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10. That's 2x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (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.

1 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a 6.9 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 1 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (6.3) and 0.6 smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (6.3).
Higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has an ISO sensitivity (max) of 3,200. That's 1,600 higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (1,600).
74% longer slowest camera shutter speed Edit
Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is 15s maximum shutter speed. That's 11s longer than the Nikon Coolpix L340 (8s) and 7s longer than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (8s). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

Higher motion JPEG frame rate Edit

10% larger display diagonal Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a 3" screen digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L340. That's 0.3" larger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (2.7"). Read more

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is 922,000 pixels display resolution. That's 462,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L340 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 (460,000 pixels).
HDMI Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has an HDMI, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 does not have an HDMI. Read more

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

15 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix L340 has a megapixel of 20.2MP (as does the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 is only a 16MP digital camera (4.2MP 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.
