Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 400D, which was introduced in October 2006 is a Entry-Level DSLR camera with a 10.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Samsung HZ50W, which was introduced in May 2010 is a Small Sensor Superzoom camera with a 14.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor. As you can see, 400D is 4 years older than HZ50W. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
Comparing a DSLR camera to a Fixed Lens camera is not an easy task but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Canon 400D and Samsung HZ50W before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Canon 400D and Samsung HZ50W compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
