6 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ST90

203g Lighter

The Samsung ST90 has a weight of 105, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (203g heavier), the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L3 are both 120g digital cameras (15g heavier) and the Olympus VR-360 is a 172g digital camera (67g 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.

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

The Samsung ST90 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T and the Olympus VR-360), however the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" 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.

4320 X 3240 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024, the Nikon Coolpix L3 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480 and the Olympus VR-360 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960. 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.

17% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung ST90 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 L3 and the Olympus VR-360 (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.

8s Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung ST90 has a flash recharging time of 4, but 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 ST90 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus VR-360), whereas the Nikon Coolpix L3 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.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ST90

Lower Megapixels

The Samsung ST90 is a 14.4 digital camera. That's 2.2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the HP CW450T (12.2MP), 9.3MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (5.1MP) and 1.6MP lower than the Olympus VR-360 (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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Samsung ST90 does not support Full HD video (As do the the HP CW450T and the Olympus VR-360), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon Coolpix L3 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.

4.9MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Samsung ST90 is a 30 internal memory digital camera. That's 7MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (23MB) and 4.9MB smaller than the Olympus VR-360 (34.9MB). 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.

24GB Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Samsung ST90 has a maximum memory card size of 8, however the HP CW450T is a 32GB maximum memory card size digital camera (24GB 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.

10% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung ST90 is a 2.7 screen digital camera, and so does the HP CW450T. That's 0.3" smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus VR-360 (3") and 0.7" larger than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung ST90 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS. That's 144,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (86,000 Pixels) and 230,000 pixels lower than the Olympus VR-360 (460,000 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung ST90 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82.

More Expensive by $38

The Samsung ST90 is $38 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS.

Older by Over Two Years

The Samsung ST90 is two years older than the Olympus VR-360. The Samsung ST90 is the same age as the HP CW450T.

Six Less Awards

The Samsung ST90 has only received 1 award, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Samsung ST90's average expert score is only 68%, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS's is 78% (based on 45 reviews).

User Review Rating is Vastly Worse

The Samsung ST90's average user score is only 60%, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS's is 88% (based on 181 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung digital cameras have an average rating of only 83.2%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Nikon has an average rating of 90.6%.

Worse CNET.co.uk Review Score

Whilst the Samsung ST90 has received a review score of 50% from CNET.co.uk, the Nikon Coolpix L3's rating was 64%.

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.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

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

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the HP CW450T, the Olympus VR-360 and the Samsung ST90), whereas the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" image sensor size. More ...

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

A Lot Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a weight of 308, however the HP CW450T and the Nikon Coolpix L3 are both 120g digital cameras (188g lighter), the Olympus VR-360 is a 172g digital camera (136g lighter) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (203g 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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12.1 digital camera. That's 0.1MP lower than the HP CW450T (12.2MP), 7MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (5.1MP), 3.9MP lower than the Olympus VR-360 (16MP) and 2.3MP 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 4000 X 3000 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 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.

Only 4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels 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 Olympus VR-360 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 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Olympus VR-360. That's 1x smaller than the HP CW450T and 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.

A Lot Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a flash recharging time of 12, however the Samsung ST90 is a 4s flash recharging time digital camera (8s faster). 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 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Samsung ST90. That's 144,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (86,000 Pixels) and 230,000 pixels lower than the Olympus VR-360 (460,000 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.

Older by Over Three Years

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 11 months older than the HP CW450T, three years older than the Olympus VR-360 and 11 months older than the Samsung ST90.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PowerShot SX130 IS in the US is $128.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

Better CNET.co.uk Review Score

CNET.co.uk gave the Nikon Coolpix L3 a review score of 64%, however the Samsung ST90 only has a rating of 50% from the same site.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

15g Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a weight of 120 (as does the HP CW450T), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (188g heavier), the Olympus VR-360 is a 172g digital camera (52g heavier) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (15g 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 Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 5.1 digital camera. That's 7.1MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the HP CW450T (12.2MP), 10.9MP lower than the Olympus VR-360 (16MP) and 9.3MP 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 1/2.5 to 1/3" (1/2.5)" Image Sensor Size

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" (1/2.5)" image sensor size, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the HP CW450T, the Olympus VR-360 and the Samsung ST90 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.

46 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L3 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024, the Olympus VR-360 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960 and the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240.

1x Bigger Digital Zoom

The HP CW450T has a digital zoom of 5 (as does the Samsung ST90), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Olympus VR-360 are all only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (1x 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.

43% Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The HP CW450T is a 32 maximum memory card size digital camera. That's 24GB larger than the Samsung ST90 (8GB). 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.

Touchscreen

The HP CW450T has a touchscreen, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Olympus VR-360 and the Samsung ST90 do not have this feature. 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.

Lighter

HP CW450T is 0.12 heavy. That's 0.05kg lighter than the Olympus VR-360 (0.17kg).

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP CW450T

12% Heavier

The HP CW450T is a 120 digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L3. That's 188g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (308g), 52g lighter than the Olympus VR-360 (172g) and 15g 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.

Lower Megapixels

The HP CW450T has a megapixels of 12.2, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12.1MP digital camera (0.1MP lower), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 5.1MP digital camera (7.1MP lower), the Olympus VR-360 is a 16MP digital camera (3.8MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.2MP 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 HP CW450T supports a still image resolution of 4032 x 3024, but 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.

Lower Image Resolution

The HP CW450T has a maximum image resolution of 4102 x 3057 pixels pixels, however the Olympus VR-360 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The HP CW450T does not support Full HD video (As do the the Olympus VR-360 and the Samsung ST90), but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon Coolpix L3 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.

Marginally Smaller Display Diagonal

HP CW450T is only 2.7 screen (as does the Samsung ST90), but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus VR-360 are both 3" screen digital cameras (0.3" larger) and the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 2" screen digital camera (0.7" 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The HP CW450T has only received a Kagoo Score of 72, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82 and the Samsung ST90 scored 78.

$69 More Expensive
