7 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak AZ401BK

Smile Detection

The Kodak AZ401BK features smile detection (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1), but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Leica V-Lux do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Kodak AZ401BK supports Full HD video, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1 do not. 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.

HDMI

The Kodak AZ401BK has an HDMI, and so do the Leica V-Lux, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS does 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.

$12 Cheaper

The Kodak AZ401BK costs $88.47, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS is $100.00, the Leica V-Lux is $1,074.99, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is $530.99 and the Pentax XG1 is $258.12.

Three Years Newer

The Kodak AZ401BK was released two years ago, but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS was released five years ago, the Leica V-Lux was released five years ago, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 was released six years ago and the Pentax XG1 was released five years ago

Easier to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Kodak AZ401BK was easier to use. More than 30 people thought that the Kodak AZ401WH was very easy to use and two people thought that it was also comfortable and easy to hold.

Has Useful Technical Features

Our analysis of the Kodak AZ401BK reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Kodak AZ401BK has useful technical features. Over 30 people thought that the Kodak AZ401WH had very good features.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak AZ401BK

128g Heavier

The Kodak AZ401BK is a 436 digital camera. That's 128g heavier than the Canon Powershot SX410 IS (308g), 84g lighter than the Leica V-Lux (520g), 344g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (780g) and 103g lighter than the Pentax XG1 (539g). 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.

22% Lower Megapixels

The Kodak AZ401BK has a megapixels of 16.15, however the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 are all 20.1MP digital cameras (3.95MP higher) and the Pentax XG1 is a 16MP digital camera (0.15MP lower). 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 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" Image Sensor Size

The Kodak AZ401BK has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Pentax XG1, which is half as big image sensor size as the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (1/1 to 1/1.5"). 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.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Kodak AZ401BK supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1, which is 7 times lower still image resolution as the Canon Powershot SX410 IS (4608 x 3072). 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Kodak AZ401BK is only 3 maximum ISO speed (as does the Pentax XG1), but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower), the Leica V-Lux is a 25,000 maximum ISO speed digital camera (21,800 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 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.

9 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Kodak AZ401BK has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, which is 9 times lower video resolution as the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels) and half as high video resolution as the Pentax XG1 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). 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 Kodak AZ401BK is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon Powershot SX410 IS. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (9 times higher video resolution) and the Pentax XG1 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). More ...

The Kodak AZ401BK also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

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.

Vastly Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak AZ401BK has an internal memory of 8, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a 100MB internal memory digital camera (92MB bigger) and the Pentax XG1 is a 15.4MB internal memory digital camera (7.4MB bigger). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

461,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Kodak AZ401BK has a display resolution of 460 (as does the Pentax XG1), whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower) and the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 are both 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (461,000 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.

80 Less Battery Life

The Kodak AZ401BK is a digital camera that takes 280 battery life, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 only takes 360 battery life. More ...

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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Kodak AZ401BK does not support Wi-Fi, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Leica V-Lux, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Kodak AZ401BK has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS scored 81, the Leica V-Lux scored 80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 scored 82.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 retailer sell the Kodak AZ401BK, however 3 sellers sell the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, 3 retailers sell the Leica V-Lux, 4 stores sell the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and 2 retailers sell the Pentax XG1. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Kodak AZ401BK only has an average user rating of 72%, but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS has an average user rating of 79% (based on 40 reviews), the Leica V-Lux has an average user rating of 96% (based on 5 reviews) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 33 reviews).

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon Powershot SX410 IS

472g Lighter

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS has a weight of 308, whereas the Kodak AZ401BK is a 436g digital camera (128g heavier), the Leica V-Lux is a 520g digital camera (212g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a 780g digital camera (472g heavier) and the Pentax XG1 is a 539g digital camera (231g heavier).

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.

18% Higher Megapixels

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 20.5 digital camera. That's 4.5MP higher than the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 (16MP) and 0.4MP higher than the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (20.1MP). 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.

7 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3072 (16:9 - 4608 x 2592; 3264 x 1832; 1920 x 1080; 640 x 360|3:2 - 4608 x 3072; 3264 x 2176; 2048 x 1368; 640 x 424|4:3 - 4608 x 3456; 3264 x 2448; 2048 x 1536; 640 x 480|1:1 - 3456 x 3456; 2448 x 2448; 1536 x 1536; 480 x 480), however the Kodak AZ401BK, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1 support a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Kodak only has an average rating of 81.6%, Leica only has an average rating of 82.1%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 86.2% and Pentax only has an average rating of 82.4%.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon Powershot SX410 IS

Only 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" Image Sensor Size

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1), but the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 have an 1/1 to 1/1.5" image sensor size. 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 Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Canon Powershot SX410 IS is only 1 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,600 lower than the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 (3,200), 23,400 lower than the Leica V-Lux (25,000) and 24,000 lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (25,600). 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.

9 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Kodak AZ401BK), however the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and the Pentax XG1 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. 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 Canon Powershot SX410 IS is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Kodak AZ401BK. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (9 times higher video resolution) and the Pentax XG1 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). More ...

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

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.

691,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 230 display resolution digital camera. That's 230,000 pixels lower than the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 (460,000 Pixels) and 691,000 pixels lower than the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (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 Canon Powershot SX410 IS does not have an HDMI, however the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and the Pentax XG1 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 Canon Powershot SX410 IS does not have a GPS (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000), but the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1 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.

Only 185 Battery Life

The Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a digital camera that takes 185 battery life, whereas the Kodak AZ401BK only takes 280 battery life, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 only takes 360 battery life and the Pentax XG1 only takes 240 battery life. More ...

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 Canon Powershot SX410 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 scored 82.

More Expensive by $12

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax XG1

Smile Detection

The Pentax XG1 features smile detection (as do the Kodak AZ401BK and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000), whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Leica V-Lux do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

HDMI

The Pentax XG1 has an HDMI, and so do the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, however the Canon Powershot SX410 IS does 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.

Built-in Flash

The Pentax XG1 has a built-in flash (as do the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000), but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Kodak AZ401BK do not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax XG1

Heavier

The Pentax XG1 is a 539 digital camera. That's 231g heavier than the Canon Powershot SX410 IS (308g), 103g heavier than the Kodak AZ401BK (436g), 19g heavier than the Leica V-Lux (520g) and 241g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (780g). 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Pentax XG1 has a megapixels of 16, but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 are all 20.1MP digital cameras (4.1MP higher) and the Kodak AZ401BK is a 16.15MP digital camera (0.15MP 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 Pentax XG1 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Kodak AZ401BK, which is half as big image sensor size as the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (1/1 to 1/1.5"). 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Pentax XG1 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), and so do the Kodak AZ401BK and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, which is 7 times lower still image resolution as the Canon Powershot SX410 IS (4608 x 3072). 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.

22,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Pentax XG1 is a 3 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Kodak AZ401BK), whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower), the Leica V-Lux is a 25,000 maximum ISO speed digital camera (21,800 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax XG1 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Leica V-Lux and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Pentax XG1 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.

Hugely Smaller Internal Memory

17 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

1/1 to 1/1.5"" Image Sensor Size

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has an 1/1 to 1/1.5"" image sensor size (as is the Leica V-Lux), but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. 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.

Smile Detection

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 features smile detection, and so do the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1, but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Leica V-Lux do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 supports Full HD video (as does the Kodak AZ401BK), whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Leica V-Lux), however the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Kodak AZ401BK have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and the Pentax XG1 only has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. More ...

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

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

HDMI

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has an HDMI (as do the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1), whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS does 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.

360 Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a digital camera that takes 360 battery life, and so does the Leica V-Lux, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS only takes 185 battery life, the Kodak AZ401BK only takes 280 battery life and the Pentax XG1 only takes 240 battery life. More ...

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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Leica V-Lux), but the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 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.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has a built-in flash, and so do the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1, however the Canon Powershot SX410 IS and the Kodak AZ401BK do not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

472g Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has a weight of 780, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS is a 308g digital camera (472g lighter), the Kodak AZ401BK is a 436g digital camera (344g lighter), the Leica V-Lux is a 520g digital camera (260g lighter) and the Pentax XG1 is a 539g digital camera (241g 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a 20.1 digital camera, and so does the Leica V-Lux. That's 0.4MP lower than the Canon Powershot SX410 IS (20.5MP) and 4.1MP higher than the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1 (16MP). 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.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) (as do the Kodak AZ401BK and the Pentax XG1), however the Canon Powershot SX410 IS supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3072. 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.

Not Waterproof

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is not waterproof, whereas the Canon Powershot SX410 IS, the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 does not have a GPS (As does the the Canon Powershot SX410 IS), but the Kodak AZ401BK, the Leica V-Lux and the Pentax XG1 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.

More Expensive by $443
