Reasons For

Canon S120 Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850
8 Reasons For
13% Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Canon S120 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 120mm. That's 15mm longer than the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 (105mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camera is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Canon S120 has a touchscreen, whereas the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 does not have a touchscreen.

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
Vastly Higher Display Resolution
The Canon S120 has a display resolution of 922,000 pixels, however the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (462,000 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
Lighter
The Canon S120 is a 217g digital camera. That's 1g lighter than the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 (218g).

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.

Expert Reviews Are Slightly Better
The average expert review score of the Canon S120 is 81%, whereas the average rating of the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 is 79% (based on 6 reviews).
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 88.6%, but Olympus has an average rating of 87.1%.
Better Ephotozine Review Score
The Canon S120 has a review score of 90% from Ephotozine, but the rating of the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 was only 0% from the same site.
7 Reasons For
25% Higher Megapixels
The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 has a megapixels of 16MP, however the Canon S120 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (3.9MP lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 is 3.5 minimum aperture. That's 2.2 smaller than the Canon S120 (5.7).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
3.9 Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 has a maximum aperture number of 5.7, however the Canon S120 is only a 1.8 maximum aperture digital camera (3.9 smaller).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 is 21mm minimum focal length, but the Canon S120 is a 24mm minimum focal length digital camera (3mm longer).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camera can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
70 More Battery Life
The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 is a digital camera that takes 300 battery life, whereas the Canon S120 only takes 230 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.

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.

Key Features

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.

Image Sensor Size

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Minimum Aperture Number

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

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.
