Nikon Coolpix P7100 vs Canon PowerShot G15

Top 14 Reasons for the

Nikon Coolpix P7100

Compared to Canon PowerShot G15

anonymous
53
Explicitly more focus points
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.
anonymous
38
Has a 24p cinema mode
Yes
vs
No
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
anonymous
36
Has a flip-out screen
Yes
vs
No
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
anonymous
35
Has a two-stage shutter
Yes
vs
No
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.
anonymous
32
Has a microphone in
Yes
vs
No
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
anonymous
32
Distinctly greater zoom range
7.1 x
vs
5 x
2.10 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
31
Has a built-in HDR mode
Yes
vs
No
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
anonymous
31
Can create panoramas in-camera
Yes
vs
No
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
anonymous
28
Has manual exposure
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
28
Substantially longer maximum focal length
200 mm
vs
140 mm
60 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
27
Measurably longer exposure time
60 s
vs
15 s
45 s longer exposure time. 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.
anonymous
26
Has manual ISO
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
anonymous
15
Has a brand lens
Yes
vs
No
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.

Vastly narrower
76.9 mm
vs
106.6 mm

Substantially more megapixels (photo)
12.1 MP
vs
10.1 MP
19.80% more megapixels (photo)

52
Vastly better image quality
46
vs
41
5 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
anonymous
44
Vastly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
2.1 fps
vs
1.3 fps
1.62x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
anonymous
42
Appreciably higher maximum light sensitivity
12800 ISO
vs
3200 ISO
4x 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.
anonymous
41
Is dustproof and water resistant
Yes
vs
No
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.
anonymous
41
Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
anonymous
40
A shade better color depth
19.9 bits
vs
19.4 bits
2.58% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
anonymous
38
Significantly better video recording quality
1080 x 24 fps
vs
720 x 24 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
anonymous

Lighter
352 g
vs
395 g
43 g lighter
anonymous
35
Has a stereo microphone
Yes
vs
No
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
anonymous
32
Amply wider dynamic range
11.5 EV
vs
10.7 EV
7.48% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights.
anonymous
31
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.8
vs
2.8
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the 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
30
Has an optical viewfinder
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
anonymous
30
Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
anonymous
29
Has a HDMI output
Yes
vs
No
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
