Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 20MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix P530 (16.1MP). 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.

1x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix P530 (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.

57% bigger internal memory Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 128MB internal memory digital camera. That's 72MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix P530 (56MB).
Cheaper by £49
The Medion Life X44022 is £49 cheaper than the Nikon Coolpix P530.
Better user reviews
Based on 1 review, the average user review score of the Medion Life X44022 is 100%, whereas the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix P530 is 91% (based on 34 reviews).
4 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P530 is a 42x optical zoom digital camera. That's 7x bigger than the Medion Life X44022 (42x). 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.

HDMI Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P530 has an HDMI, however the Medion Life X44022 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.

Slightly lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P530 has a weight of 494g, however the Medion Life X44022 is a 500g digital camera (6g 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.

240.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix P530 takes 240.00 battery life (CIPA standard), however the Medion Life X44022 only takes 150.00 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.
