Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has a megapixel of 20.2MP, but the Medion Life E44050 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.

Hugely bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has an optical zoom of 18x, but the Medion Life E44050 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (13x 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.

Marginally smaller maximum aperture number Edit
Canon SX610 HS is 6.9 maximum aperture, but the Medion Life E44050 is only a 6.4 maximum aperture digital camera (0.5 bigger).
0.3" larger display diagonal Edit
Canon SX610 HS is 3" screen, but the Medion Life E44050 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller). 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.

3 Reasons For
Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Medion Life E44050 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Canon SX610 HS (5x). 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.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
Medion Life E44050 is 3.2 minimum aperture, but the Canon SX610 HS is a 3.8 minimum aperture digital camera (0.6 larger).
Cheaper by £105
The Medion Life E44050 costs £49.99, whereas the Canon SX610 HS is £154.89.
