comparing http://www.samsung.com/uk/nx100/ and http://wize.com/digital-cameras/p202...-s6000-142mp-7

why they have that much price difference as the megapixels of both cameras are similar . a good camera is about the zoom it has?
more zoom more price?
what should i exactly looking when i wanna buy a camera?

I'm confused, those two cameras are so completely different they can't even be compared to each other. Megapixels don't create good image quality.

One is a compact point and shoot, the other is as close to a DSLR without being a DSLR as is possible.

its not all about MP or zoom. i dont know if they still try to trick people into buying cameras based on zoom but there are two types of zoom optical and digital. optical = good and digital = bad

optical is real zoom which is changing focal lengths to see farther. digital zoom and blowing the picture up to make it bigger to make it seem like you zoomed but actually you didnt, you just zoomed into the picture itself which results in loss of detail.

MP is good but doesnt really matter that much on a camera like that unless you plan on printing out large prints of your photos.

the best suggestion is look at the features between the two and see what you will take advantage of the most and test both of them out and see how they feel in your hands.

not gunna lie though the samsung one looks pretty cool. but i would read reviews and stuff and make sure its a good camera. at that price range its minute things that are different between each camera. they all do the same thing which is take pictures. just dont get trapped by how cool it looks and then find out that its not that great of a camera or it doesnt actually suit your needs. the ability to have lenses on the samsung is good but you need to see how much extra money you are going to spend to get longer lenses to be able to zoom further. oh yea and just because you can buy more lenses for it dont expect it to be able to produce more stunning photos. its not all about the camera its more about the photographer.

edit:

pao they are both point and shoot. the samsung just has interchangeable lenses as a selling point to make people want to buy it because its like a DSLR but its totally not.

As the others have said, resolution is a very minor factor in determining the quality of a camera. The reason the NX100 is more expensive is because it's an Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens (EVIL) camera. EVIL cameras are essentially DSLRs without a mirror box or pentaprism. Because they are capable of changing lenses and have larger sensors, they are pricey. The Nikon S6000 is a point-and-shoot camera, which means that it has a smaller sensor and lacks many features that a DLSR/EVIL has such as interchangeable lenses, speed, build quality, etc.

In terms of price, it's point-and-shoot < EVIL < DSLR. You'll need to decide which kind of camera suits you best. Check out the stickies for this forum as there are excellent guides there.

the samsung is more expensive because it has a larger sensor.

sensor size (not MP but the physical size) is really what makes a camera expensive. sure build quality and material or the intended audience the camera is marketing to makes a difference, but the biggest chunk of price comes from sensor size.

That's absolutely right.

As others have said, megapixels does not mean anything; it's the sensor size that matters. A 6MP DSLR will look better than an 18MP point and shoot simply because the DSLR has a larger sensor.

I'm not sure if you're looking for a compact camera specifically, but at the price of the Samsung, why not just get a DSLR instead? Same image quality, but I find the ergonomics to be better and the body itself to be better balanced with a lens.

yup, a nice DSLR might be the way to go.

depending on your needs a DSLR might be the way to go over a PS or a EVIL system. EVIL system gives you the IQ of a DSLR but it lacks the ergonomics of one which is bad when you want to use a long lens but the camera does not attract as much attention.
