Slightly larger sensor
Comment
4.55 x 6.17 mm
vs
4.56 x 6.08 mm
1.26% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

Noticeably more focus points
Comment
99
vs
9
90 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Sizably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
Comment
7 fps
vs
1 fps
7x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

Has a built-in HDR mode
Comment
Yes
vs

Measurably higher resolution
Comment
1280x720 px
vs

A little bit less body volume
Comment
192.16 cm³
vs
195.26 cm³
1.61% less body volume

Has built-in optical image stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
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.

Narrower
Comment
58.3 mm
vs
61 mm
2.70 mm narrower
anonymous

Has AF tracking
Comment
Yes
vs
No
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.
anonymous
37
Has a CMOS sensor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
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.
anonymous
35
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Comment
1.8
vs
3.5
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. 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.
anonymous
31
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
31
Has manual exposure
Comment
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
30
Has manual focus
Comment
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the focus.

Shorter minimum focal length
Comment
24 mm
vs
25 mm
1 mm shorter minimum focal length. 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.

Top Eight Reasons for the

Pentax Optio RZ18

Compared to Nikon Coolpix P310

anonymous
81
Appreciably higher maximum light sensitivity
Comment
6400 ISO
vs
3200 ISO
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. 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.

Modestly lighter
Comment
178 g
vs
194 g
16 g lighter

Has WiFi
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device can connect to WiFi.

Shorter
Comment
97 mm
vs
103 mm
6 mm shorter
anonymous
36
Substantially greater zoom range
Comment
18 x
vs
4.2 x
13.80 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
anonymous
32
Considerably longer maximum focal length
Comment
450 mm
vs
100 mm
350 mm longer maximum focal length. 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.
anonymous
28
Can be controlled remotely
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
