- It has more megapixels
- It has a wider and longer zoom range (although macro abilities are the same for both)
- The rear viewfinder has heaps better resolution than the Canon
- It has a larger optical zoom
- It has better minimum and maximum aperture settings
- It does full HD video (1920×1080) at 30fps — compared with 1280×720 for the Canon. It also has a HDMI port for outputting.
- It has 89MB of internal storage. Handy if you fill up your memory card(s).
- Not as low ISO as the Canon, but can go higher.
- Although it’s a personal preference it takes 16:9 format images — very cool!
- It’s lighter and smaller
A couple of downsides:
- It’s more expensive.
- You need a specific battery, so if you want a spare they can cost a few $$! The Canon takes AAs which are easy to replace or recharge.
- Another, and most significantly, there is no Aperture Priority, no Shutter Priority and no Manual Mode — personally I wouldn’t but a camera without those! But if you’re not fussed about making manual decisions then the Nikon is better for the most part.

Thanks for the website – pretty useful!
The batteries will probably be a problem, so I think I’ll go with the Canon. But do you think details on close-up shots will be clear?
Yeah for sure.
