Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 1D X is an 18.1MP digital camera. That's 2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S8200 (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.

Larger display diagonal Edit
Canon EOS 1D X is 3.2" screen. That's 0.2" larger than the Nikon Coolpix S8200 (3"). 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.
