Comparing Canon PowerShot SX500 IS vs Nikon Coolpix L820

1. Canon PowerShot SX500 IS

12 Reasons why Canon PowerShot SX500 IS is better

Comparing Canon PowerShot SX500 IS vs Nikon Coolpix L820

341gvs 470g (Nikon Coolpix L820)
2.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (Nikon Coolpix L820)
The device can connect to WiFi.
104mmvs 110mm (Nikon Coolpix L820)
4.Plenty less body volume
579.69cm³vs 709.21cm³ (Nikon Coolpix L820)
5.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Nikon Coolpix L820)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
69.5mmvs 76.3mm (Nikon Coolpix L820)
80.2mmvs 84.5mm (Nikon Coolpix L820)
8.Has AF tracking
Yesvs No (Nikon Coolpix L820)
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
9.Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Yesvs No (Nikon Coolpix L820)
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
10.A lot longer maximum focal length
720mmvs 675mm (Nikon Coolpix L820)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
11.Significantly longer exposure time
15svs 4s (Nikon Coolpix L820)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.

2. Nikon Coolpix L820

16 Reasons why Nikon Coolpix L820 is better

Comparing Nikon Coolpix L820 vs Canon PowerShot SX500 IS

1.Explicitly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
8fpsvs 0.8fps (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
2.Clearly higher maximum light sensitivity
3200ISOvs 1600ISO (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
3.Noticeably better video recording quality
1,080 x 30fpsvs 720 x 25fps (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
4.Measurably faster maximum shutter speed
0.00025svs 0.000625s (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
5.Sizably higher pixel density
462ppivs 327ppi (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
6.Appreciably higher resolution
1,108 x 831pxvs 784 x 588px (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
7.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
8.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
9.Has a CMOS sensor
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
10.Distinctly wider aperture at minimum focal length
3vs 3.4 (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
11.Has a HDMI output
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
12.Has manual exposure
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
This allows to manually set the exposure.
13.Has manual focus
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
This allows to manually set the focus.
14.Measurably shorter minimum focal length
22.5mmvs 24mm (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
15.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX500 IS)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
16.Substantially less expensive
