7 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 A490, 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 D80 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.

15% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D300S has a display diagonal of 3" (as does the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS), however the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung ST90 are all only 2.7" screen digital cameras (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.

A Lot Wider Field of View

The Nikon D300S has a field of view of 100% (as do the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS), whereas the Nikon D80 is only a 36% field of view digital camera (64% narrower). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

HDMI

The Nikon D300S has an HDMI, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, the Nikon D80 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.

800 More Battery Life

The Nikon D300S is a digital camera that takes 950 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 only takes 150 battery life and the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS only takes 210 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80 or the Samsung ST90. It is possible that they do 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D300S supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Nikon D80, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS 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.

One Month Newer

The Nikon D300S was released six years ago, but the Canon PowerShot A490 was released 11 years ago, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS was released 10 years ago, the Nikon D80 was released six years ago and the Samsung ST90 was released 10 years ago

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D300S

47% Heavier

The Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera. That's 665g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 625g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (215g), 255g heavier than the Nikon D80 (585g) 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.

15% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D300S has a megapixels of 12.3MP, however the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Nikon D80 are both 10.2MP digital cameras (2.1MP lower), the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 12.1MP digital camera (0.2MP lower) 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.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D300S has a digital zoom of 1x, but the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS are both 4x digital zoom digital cameras (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.

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 A490, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D80 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 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 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.

0.2" Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Nikon D300S has a viewfinder screen size of 3", whereas the Nikon D80 is a 3.2" viewfinder screen size digital camera (0.2" larger). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D300S does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D80), but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D300S has received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 82, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS scored 83, the Nikon D80 scored 77 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

$835 More Expensive

The Nikon D300S is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot A490 by $805, more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS by $835 and more expensive than the Samsung ST90 by $769.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.7%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

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

User Reviews Are Vastly Better

Based on 6 user reviews, the average review score of the Nikon D80 is 93%, however the average rating of the Samsung ST90 is 60% (based on 1 review).

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D80

Heavier

The Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera. That's 410g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 370g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS (215g), 255g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g) and 480g 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 Nikon D80 has a megapixels of 10.2MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 10MP digital camera (0.2MP lower), the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S are both 12.3MP digital cameras (2.1MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (4.2MP higher). More ...

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

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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D80 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1, however the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 higher) and the Nikon D300S is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 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.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon D80 is a 2.5" screen digital camera (as does the Canon PowerShot A490), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S are both 3" screen digital cameras (0.5" larger) and the Samsung ST90 is a 2.7" screen digital camera (0.2" larger). More ...

64% Narrower Field of View

The Nikon D80 has a field of view of 36%, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS and the Nikon D300S are all 100% field of view digital cameras (64% wider). More ...

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS

Higher Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot A490 only has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels. 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.

Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS supports Full HD video, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D300S, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung ST90 do not. More ...

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

Higher Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, which is 7 times higher video resolution as the Canon PowerShot A490 (640 x 480 pixels) and twice as high video resolution as the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 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.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 3" screen digital camera (as does the Nikon D300S), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung ST90 are all only 2.7" screen digital cameras (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.

A Lot Wider Field of View

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a field of view of 100% (as do the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Nikon D300S), but the Nikon D80 is only a 36% field of view digital camera (64% narrower). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

8x Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a maximum playback zoom of 10x, however the Canon PowerShot A490 is only a 2x maximum playback zoom digital camera (8x lower). 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 82, the Nikon D300S scored 74, the Nikon D80 scored 77 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, whereas Nikon only has an average rating of 90.7% and Samsung only has an average rating of 83.5%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS

34% Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 215g digital camera. That's 40g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 625g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g), 370g lighter than the Nikon D80 (585g) 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.

2.3MP Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a megapixels of 12.1MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Nikon D80 are both 10.2MP digital cameras (1.9MP lower), the Nikon D300S is a 12.3MP digital camera (0.2MP 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). 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 Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon PowerShot A490 and 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 D80 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.

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 (as does the Canon PowerShot A490), however the Nikon D300S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (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, however the Nikon D300S is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher) and the Nikon D80 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower). 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 Canon PowerShot SX220 HS has a display resolution of 461 pixels, but the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 115,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (346,000 pixels lower), the Nikon D300S is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (460,000 pixels higher) and the Nikon D80 and the Samsung ST90 are both 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (231,000 pixels lower). 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.

740 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is 210, but the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80 or the Samsung ST90. It is possible that they do 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.

Over Four Years Older

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is older than the Nikon D300S by five years and older than the Nikon D80 by five years. The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is the same age as the Samsung ST90.

The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is 105.7mm wide, 59.3mm tall, 33.2mm deep and weighs 215g.
