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.

Better expert reviews
Based on 4 reviews, the average expert review score of the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 is 75%, whereas the average rating of the Sony DSC-H400 is 69% (based on 12 reviews).
2 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H400 is a 20.1MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 (20.1MP). 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.
