14 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung MV800

43% Higher Megapixels

The Samsung MV800 is a 16.15 digital camera. That's 3.95MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the HP CW450T (12.2MP), 12.15MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L4 (4MP) and 6.15MP higher than the Olympus XZ1 (10MP). 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.

4608 X 3456 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels, the HP CW450T only has a maximum image resolution of 4102 x 3057 pixels and the Olympus XZ1 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.

1x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung MV800 is a 5 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the HP CW450T. That's 1x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 (4x). 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 Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung MV800 has a flash recharging time of 4, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12s flash recharging time digital camera (8s slower). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus XZ1), but the Nikon Coolpix L4 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the HP CW450T 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Samsung MV800 is 3 screen, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus XZ1. That's 1" larger than the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L4 (2"). 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.

Touchscreen

The Samsung MV800 has a touchscreen, and so does the HP CW450T, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 do not. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

HDMI

The Samsung MV800 has an HDMI (as does the Olympus XZ1), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L4 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.

3D

The Samsung MV800 is a 3D digital camera, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Newer by Five Years

The Samsung MV800 is five years newer than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, five years newer than the HP CW450T, six years newer than the Nikon Coolpix L4 and five years newer than the Olympus XZ1

Better Digicam Buyer.co.uk Review Score

The Samsung MV800 has a review score of 100% from Digicam Buyer.co.uk, but the rating of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS was only 80% from the same site.

A Better Size

The Samsung MV800 reviewers thought the Samsung MV800 was a better size. Over 10 people thought that it was compact and several people thought that it was also thin and was a good size.

Has a Better Design

The Samsung MV800 reviewers thought the Samsung MV800 has a better design. Several people thought that it was good-looking and well designed.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

On average reviewers thought the Samsung MV800 has a better screen or viewfinder. Over 10 people thought that it had a good screen and five people thought that it also had a good touch-screen.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung MV800

A Little Heavier

The Samsung MV800 has a weight of 121, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (187g heavier), the HP CW450T is a 120g digital camera (1g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a 115g digital camera (6g lighter) and the Olympus XZ1 is a 275g digital camera (154g heavier). 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 1024 X 768 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung MV800 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768 (as do the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1), but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024. 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.

3,200 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Samsung MV800 is a 3 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 1,600 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (1,600) and 3,200 lower than the Olympus XZ1 (6,400). 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.

82% Smaller Internal Memory

The Samsung MV800 is a 10 internal memory digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L4. That's 44.6MB smaller than the Olympus XZ1 (54.6MB). 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.

A Lot Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum memory card size of 32 (as does the HP CW450T), whereas the Olympus XZ1 is a 64GB maximum memory card size digital camera (32GB larger). More ...

The maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung MV800 is a 288 display resolution digital camera. That's 58,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (230,000 Pixels), 173,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L4 (115,000 Pixels) and 322,000 pixels lower than the Olympus XZ1 (610,000 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 a GPS

The Samsung MV800 does not have a GPS, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Samsung MV800 does not support Wi-Fi, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 do. 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Samsung MV800 does not feature bluetooth, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung MV800 has only received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82 and the Olympus XZ1 scored 86.

We couldn't find any retailers that are currently selling the product. More ...

The average user rating of the Samsung MV800 is 88%, whereas the average user rating of the Olympus XZ1 is 90% (based on 2 reviews).

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

Higher Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Olympus XZ1 and the Samsung MV800, which is 3 times higher video resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L4 (640 x 480 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the HP CW450T 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 3 screen (as do the Olympus XZ1 and the Samsung MV800), but the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L4 are both only 2" screen digital cameras (1" 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.

50 More Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS takes 370 battery life, however the Olympus XZ1 only takes 320 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 or the Samsung MV800. 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but HP only has an average rating of 61.2%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.1%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82.2% and Samsung only has an average rating of 83.4%.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308 digital camera. That's 188g heavier than the HP CW450T (120g), 193g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix L4 (115g), 33g heavier than the Olympus XZ1 (275g) and 187g heavier than the Samsung MV800 (121g). 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 SX130 IS has a megapixels of 12.1, but the HP CW450T is a 12.2MP digital camera (0.1MP higher), the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a 4MP digital camera (8.1MP lower), the Olympus XZ1 is a 10MP digital camera (2.1MP lower) and the Samsung MV800 is a 16.15MP digital camera (4.05MP 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 SX130 IS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the HP CW450T, whereas the Olympus XZ1 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Samsung MV800 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 SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, but the HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024. 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 Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, however the HP CW450T has a maximum image resolution of 4102 x 3057 pixels and the Samsung MV800 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 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.

1x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a digital zoom of 4 (as do the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1), whereas the HP CW450T and the Samsung MV800 are both 5x digital zoom digital cameras (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.

4,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 1 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Olympus XZ1 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 higher) and the Samsung MV800 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 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.

Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12 flash recharging time digital camera. That's 8s slower than the Samsung MV800 (4s). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a display resolution of 230, however the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a 115,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (115,000 pixels lower), the Olympus XZ1 is a 610,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (380,000 pixels higher) and the Samsung MV800 is a 288,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (58,000 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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Olympus XZ1 scored 86.

$58 More Expensive

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is more expensive than the HP CW450T by $38 and more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix L4 by $58.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 store sell the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, but 2 retailers sell the Olympus XZ1. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over Five Years Older

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is older than the HP CW450T by 10 months, older than the Olympus XZ1 by eight months and older than the Samsung MV800 by five years.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Olympus XZ1 has received 17 awards and the Samsung MV800 has received 9 awards.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus XZ1

1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.63)" Image Sensor Size

The Olympus XZ1 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.63)" image sensor size, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the HP CW450T have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Samsung MV800 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.

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Olympus XZ1 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800), but the Nikon Coolpix L4 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the HP CW450T 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.

Bigger Internal Memory

The Olympus XZ1 is a 54.6 internal memory digital camera. That's 44.6MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Samsung MV800 (10MB). 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.

32GB Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Olympus XZ1 has a maximum memory card size of 64, whereas the HP CW450T and the Samsung MV800 are both only 32GB maximum memory card size digital cameras (32GB smaller). More ...

The maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

Larger Display Diagonal

Olympus XZ1 is 3 screen, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800. That's 1" larger than the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L4 (2"). 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 Olympus XZ1 has an HDMI (as does the Samsung MV800), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L4 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Olympus XZ1 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82, the HP CW450T scored only 72, the Nikon Coolpix L4 scored only 72 and the Samsung MV800 scored only 75.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

17 More Awards

The Olympus XZ1 has received 17 awards from expert review sites, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the HP CW450T has received no awards, the Nikon Coolpix L4 has received no awards and the Samsung MV800 has received 9 awards.

Slightly Better Expert Reviews

Based on 104 expert reviews, the Olympus XZ1 has an average review score of 81%, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has an average rating of 78% (based on 45 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix L4 has an average rating of 61% (based on 17 reviews) and the Samsung MV800 has an average rating of 69% (based on 83 reviews).

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus XZ1

160g Heavier

The Olympus XZ1 has a weight of 275, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (33g heavier), the HP CW450T is a 120g digital camera (155g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a 115g digital camera (160g lighter) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (154g 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 Olympus XZ1 is a 10 digital camera. That's 2.2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the HP CW450T (12.2MP), 6MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L4 (4MP) and 6.15MP lower than the Samsung MV800 (16.15MP). 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 1024 X 768 Still Image Resolution

The Olympus XZ1 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768 (as do the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Samsung MV800), but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024. 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.

Half As High Image Resolution

The Olympus XZ1 has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels, the HP CW450T has a maximum image resolution of 4102 x 3057 pixels and the Samsung MV800 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 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.

1x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Olympus XZ1 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon Coolpix L4. That's 1x smaller than the HP CW450T and the Samsung MV800 (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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus XZ1 does not support Full HD video (As does the the HP CW450T), but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Samsung MV800 do. 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.

Only 320 Battery Life

The Olympus XZ1 takes 320 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only takes 370 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the HP CW450T, the Nikon Coolpix L4 or the Samsung MV800. 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.

More Expensive by $96

The Olympus XZ1 is $38 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, $76 more expensive than the HP CW450T and $96 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix L4.

Older by Over Four Years

The Olympus XZ1 is two months older than the HP CW450T and five years older than the Samsung MV800.

Worse Brand

Olympus digital cameras have an average rating of only 82.2%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.1% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.4%.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Trusted Reviews and Parentesis.com both gave the Olympus XZ1 a lower review score. More ...

3 Reasons For for Choosing the HP CW450T

4032 X 3024 Still Image Resolution

The HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the Nikon Coolpix L4, the Olympus XZ1 and the Samsung MV800 support a still image resolution of 1024 x 768. More ...

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.

1x Bigger Digital Zoom

The HP CW450T is a 5 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Samsung MV800. That's 1x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 (4x). 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 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.

Touchscreen

The HP CW450T has a touchscreen, and so does the Samsung MV800, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L4 and the Olympus XZ1 do not. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP CW450T

Moderately Heavier

The HP CW450T has a weight of 120, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (188g heavier), the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a 115g digital camera (5g lighter), the Olympus XZ1 is a 275g digital camera (155g heavier) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (1g heavier). More ...
