Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weight

442g

542g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.screen resolution

461k dots

921k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
5.has a flash
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.screen size

3"

3"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

6.1 x 4.5mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.megapixels (main camera)

16MP

16MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
3.maximum light sensitivity

3200 ISO

6400 ISO

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.
4.continuous shooting at high resolution

1.5fps

7.4fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
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.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1280 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.supports slow-motion video recording
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

210shots

600shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

Features

1.supports Wi-Fi
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
2.Has a remote control
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
3.has an external memory slot
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
5.has an HDMI output
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
6.has an accelerometer
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Nikon Coolpix B500
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
