    • Nikon 5200 has 39 focus points and 24 MP resolution sensor whereas Hx 400v has 9 FPs and around 9 MP sensor (a feature you’ll like to use while capturing photos in Church) Nikon’s camera also has a larger viewfinder which will be useful for capturing pictures from distance. Thus, 5200 is a better choice.
