Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Nikon COOLPIX A900
11 Reasons For
Higher Still Image Resolution
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS supports a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536, however the Nikon COOLPIX A900 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200.

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

2% Wider Field of View
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS has a field of view of 100, whereas the Nikon COOLPIX A900 is only a 98% field of view digital camera (2% narrower).

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

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.

Higher Megapixels
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 is a 20.3 digital camera. That's 4.3MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS (16MP).

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.

5184 X 3888 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS only has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels.

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

49% Bigger Digital Zoom
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 is a 70 digital zoom digital camera. That's 66x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS (4x).

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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS only has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels.

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Video Resolution
The best video resolution supported by the Nikon COOLPIX A900 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution).

The Nikon COOLPIX A900 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 has a touchscreen, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS does not.

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Read more Read less | Edit
270 Battery Life
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 takes 270 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS only takes 210 battery life.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 features bluetooth, however the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS does not feature this benefit.

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Better for Everyday Photography
The Nikon COOLPIX A900 is better for everyday photography than the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS.
When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

The Nikon COOLPIX A900 has a weight of 278g and takes 270 Shots battery life.

Optical Zoom

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.

Weight

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.

Megapixels

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.

Maximum Image Resolution

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Digital Zoom

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.

Maximum Video Resolution

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.
