Reasons For

9 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.1MP). 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.

24% more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is a 16.76MP digital camera. That's 3.96MP more than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 (12.8MP).

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.
