Reasons For

6 Reasons For
20% higher megapixel Edit
The Medion Life X44022 has a megapixel of 20MP, however the Nikon B500 is only a 16MP digital camera (4MP 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.

Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Medion Life X44022 has a digital zoom of 5x, but the Nikon B500 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller). 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.

108MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Medion Life X44022 has an internal memory of 128MB, however the Nikon B500 is only a 20MB internal memory digital camera (108MB smaller).
9% lighter Edit
The Medion Life X44022 is a 500g digital camera. That's 42g lighter than the Nikon B500 (542g). 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.

£114 cheaper
The Medion Life X44022 costs £105.00, whereas the Nikon B500 is £219.00.
User reviews are better
Based on 1 review, the Medion Life X44022 has an average user review score of 100%, but the Nikon B500 has an average rating of 95% (based on 8 reviews).
5 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Nikon B500 has an image stabilizer, but the Medion Life X44022 does not have an image stabilizer. 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.

13% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon B500 has an optical zoom of 40x, however the Medion Life X44022 is only a 35x optical zoom digital camera (5x smaller). 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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Nikon B500 is -2 minimum aperture. That's 5 smaller than the Medion Life X44022 (-2).
