Nikon Coolpix S8100 with Samsung TL500 Overview


Let's compare Samsung TL500 with Nikon Coolpix S8100. These models are included in the Small Sensor Compact cameras. Both of these models were released in 2010. This means that differences will go a long way. Let's take a closer look.
The sensor resolution of TL500 is greater than that of Coolpix S8100. However, the difference of 2 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (Coolpix S8100), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. Both cameras have Optical image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch articulated screen.
Samsung TL500 has 10.0 fps continuous shooting.
