vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
11.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
12.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
13.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Yesvs No (82% don't have it)
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.
14.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
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.
15.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
16.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
17.Measurably greater zoom range
30xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
18.Vastly longer maximum focal length
750mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
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.
19.Substantially shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
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.
20.Has built in 60fps video editing
No need to download files and then find a program that will edit in 60fps HD. Do it in the camera, then immediately load it from there to Youtube or Facebook or the CIG cloud.
21.Is one third the price!
Is it fair to compare a "point and shoot" style camera with a higher end, expensive model? For a user in the $350 range, the Canon is EXCELLENT. If you make your living as a photographer and need a WORK camera, you would consider the Nikon.
22.Has hybrid auto mode
Hybrid auto mode takes a 4 - 6 second video clip just before taking a shot in standard auto mode. Great for vacation memories, video journals, and just messing around for fun.
