461,200 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit

8 Reasons For
25% higher megapixel Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 has a megapixel of 16.1MP, however the Canon PowerShot G15 is only a 12.1MP 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.

7.5x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 has an optical zoom of 12.5x, however the Canon PowerShot G15 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (7.5x 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.

6.1 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 has a maximum aperture number of 7.9, however the Canon PowerShot G15 is only a 1.8 maximum aperture digital camera (6.1 bigger).
54% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 is a 300mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 160mm longer than the Canon PowerShot G15 (300mm).
Shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 is 24mm minimum focal length, but the Canon PowerShot G15 is a 28mm minimum focal length digital camera (4mm longer).
2x lighter Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 is a 165g digital camera. That's 187g lighter than the Canon PowerShot G15 (165g). 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.

One hundred and sixty-five more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 is a digital camera that takes 515.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Canon PowerShot G15 only takes 350.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

User reviews are appreciably better
Based on 6 reviews, the Casio Exilim EX-ZR400 has an average user review score of 97%, but the Canon PowerShot G15 has an average rating of 80% (based on 6 reviews).
