8 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K50

28% Higher Megapixels

The Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S (12.3MP), 6.1MP higher than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP) and 1.9MP higher than the Samsung ST90 (14.4MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Dustproof

The Pentax K50 is a dustproof digital camera, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000, the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Full HD Video

The Pentax K50 supports Full HD video (as does the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS), but the Nikon D3000, the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 do not support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Pentax K50 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS), whereas the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Twice As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Pentax K50 also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Pentax K50 is a 3" screen digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Nikon D300S. That's 0.3" larger than the Samsung ST90 (2.7"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

HDMI

The Pentax K50 has an HDMI (as does the Nikon D300S), but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 do not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

980 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Pentax K50 is 980, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS only takes 210 battery life, the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life and the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung ST90. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K50

A Lot Heavier

The Pentax K50 has a weight of 660g, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 215g digital camera (445g lighter), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (175g lighter), the Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera (180g heavier) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (555g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Only 3936 X 2624 Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 3936 x 2624, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216 and the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax K50 has received a Kagoo Score of 72, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS scored 79, the Nikon D3000 scored 77, the Nikon D300S scored 80 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

More Expensive by $564

The Pentax K50 is $564 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, $164 more expensive than the Nikon D3000, $415 more expensive than the Nikon D300S and $498 more expensive than the Samsung ST90.

Less Retailers

The Pentax K50 is only stocked by 1 shop, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is stocked by 2 sellers and the Nikon D300S is stocked by 3 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
Older by Over Five Years

The Pentax K50 is five months older than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, five years older than the Nikon D300S and four months older than the Samsung ST90.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 78.6%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.2% and Samsung has an average rating of 82.9%.

The Pentax K50 is 132.08mm wide, 96.52mm tall, 73.66mm deep and weighs 660g.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3000

Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D3000 is a 3" screen digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K50. That's 0.3" larger than the Samsung ST90 (2.7"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3000 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Nikon D300S), however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung ST90 do not support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

12 More Awards

The Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has received no awards, the Nikon D300S has received no awards, the Pentax K50 has received no awards and the Samsung ST90 has received no awards.

Vastly Better User Reviews

The Nikon D3000 has an average user review score of 89% based on 13 reviews, however the Samsung ST90 has an average rating of 60% (based on 1 review).

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3000

A Lot Heavier

The Nikon D3000 has a weight of 485g, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 215g digital camera (270g lighter), the Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera (355g heavier), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (175g heavier) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (380g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

38% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera. That's 2.1MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S (12.3MP), 6.1MP lower than the Pentax K50 (16.3MP) and 4.2MP lower than the Samsung ST90 (14.4MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 3872 X 2592 Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216, the Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 3936 x 2624 and the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Nikon D300S. That's 3x smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (4x) and 4x smaller than the Samsung ST90 (5x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D3000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS. That's 3,200 lower than the Nikon D300S (6,400) and 48,000 lower than the Pentax K50 (51,200). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3000 is a 230 pixels display resolution digital camera, and so does the Samsung ST90. That's 231,000 pixels lower than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (461,000 Pixels) and 691,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon D3000 does not have an HDMI, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D300S, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung ST90 do. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D3000 does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D300S), however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung ST90 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

90% Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1x maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 9x lower than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (10x). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

1.5mm Smaller Eye Relief

The Nikon D3000 has an eye relief of 18mm, however the Nikon D300S is a 19.5mm Eye relief digital camera (1.5mm bigger). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Only 500 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Nikon D3000 is 500, but the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life and the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung ST90. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3000 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS scored 79, the Nikon D300S scored 80 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

More Expensive by $400

The Nikon D3000 is $400 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, $251 more expensive than the Nikon D300S and $334 more expensive than the Samsung ST90.

Less Retailers

The Nikon D3000 is only stocked by 1 store, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is stocked by 2 sellers and the Nikon D300S is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
Older by Over Five Years

The Nikon D3000 is 14 months older than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, six years older than the Nikon D300S, nine months older than the Pentax K50 and 13 months older than the Samsung ST90.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.2%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the D3000 in the US is $499.95 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D300S

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.6)" image sensor size, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Samsung ST90 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

0.3" Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D300S has a display diagonal of 3" (as do the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50), however the Samsung ST90 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

HDMI

The Nikon D300S has an HDMI, and so does the Pentax K50, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 do not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

8% Bigger Eye Relief

Nikon D300S is 19.5mm Eye relief. That's 1.5mm bigger than the Nikon D3000 (18mm). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D300S supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Nikon D3000, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung ST90 do not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon D300S has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS scored 79, the Nikon D3000 scored 77, the Pentax K50 scored 72 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Five Years Newer

The Nikon D300S was released five years ago, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS was released 10 years ago, the Nikon D3000 was released 11 years ago, the Pentax K50 was released 10 years ago and the Samsung ST90 was released 10 years ago

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D300S

Heavier

The Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera. That's 625g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (215g), 355g heavier than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 180g heavier than the Pentax K50 (660g) and 735g heavier than the Samsung ST90 (105g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

25% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D300S has a megapixels of 12.3MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 12.1MP digital camera (0.2MP lower), the Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera (2.1MP lower), the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (4MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.1MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

4x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D300S has a digital zoom of 1x (as does the Nikon D3000), but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (3x bigger) and the Samsung ST90 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (4x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon D300S is only 6 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D3000 are both 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (3,200 lower) and the Pentax K50 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (44,800 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon D300S does not support Full HD video (As does the the Samsung ST90), however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Nikon D300S has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Samsung ST90, which is half as high video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Pentax K50 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Samsung ST90. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Nikon D300S also supports 640 x 480 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D300S does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D3000), but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung ST90 do. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

30 Less Battery Life

The Nikon D300S is a digital camera that takes 950 battery life, whereas the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung ST90. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

$149 More Expensive

The Nikon D300S is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS by $149 and more expensive than the Samsung ST90 by $83.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The Nikon D300S is 147mm wide, 74mm tall, 114mm deep and weighs 0.84kg.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS

Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 215g digital camera. That's 270g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 625g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g), 445g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g) and 110g heavier than the Samsung ST90 (105g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

A Lot Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a megapixels of 12.1MP, whereas the Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera (1.9MP lower), the Nikon D300S is a 12.3MP digital camera (0.2MP higher), the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (4.2MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.3MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP).

While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Samsung ST90, however the Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 have. More ...

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, whereas the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

20% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a digital zoom of 4x, however the Nikon D3000 and the Nikon D300S are both 1x digital zoom digital cameras (3x smaller) and the Samsung ST90 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3 (as does the Nikon D3000), however the Nikon D300S is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher) and the Pentax K50 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (48,000 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Half As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90. But the best video resolution supported by the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS also supports 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a display resolution of 461 pixels, but the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 are both 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (231,000 pixels lower) and the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K50 are both 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (460,000 pixels higher). More ...

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ST90

88% Lighter

The Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera. That's 110g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (215g), 380g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 735g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g) and 555g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, the Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216 and the Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 3936 x 2624. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung ST90 has a digital zoom of 5x, but the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller) and the Nikon D3000 and the Nikon D300S are both only 1x digital zoom digital cameras (4x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ST90

12% Lower Megapixels

The Samsung ST90 has a megapixels of 14.4MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S are both 12.3MP digital cameras (2.1MP lower), the Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera (4.2MP lower) and the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (1.9MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Samsung ST90 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, but the Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Samsung ST90 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Nikon D300S), however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Samsung ST90 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Nikon D300S, which is half as high video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Pentax K50 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Samsung ST90 also supports 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung ST90 has a display diagonal of 2.7", however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D3000, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K50 are all 3" screen digital cameras (0.3" larger). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

691,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung ST90 has a display resolution of 230 pixels (as does the Nikon D3000), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 461,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (231,000 pixels higher) and the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K50 are both 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (691,000 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung ST90 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the Nikon D300S scored 80.

$66 More Expensive

The Samsung ST90 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS by $66.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the Samsung ST90, however 2 retailers sell the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and 3 stores sell the Nikon D300S. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Four Years Older

The Samsung ST90 is older than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS by one month and older than the Nikon D300S by five years.

Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Samsung ST90 only has an average user rating of 60%, but the Nikon D3000 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 13 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung digital cameras have an average rating of only 82.9%, however Canon has an average rating of 95% and Nikon has an average rating of 90.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the ST90 in the US is $165.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
