6 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix A100

5 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix A100 supports a still image resolution of 5120 x 2880, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536, the GE A1250 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480 and the Olympus VG-160 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. 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.

Smile Detection

The Nikon Coolpix A100 features smile detection, and so does the GE A1250, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Olympus VG-160 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix A100 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Olympus VG-160), however the GE A1250 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon Coolpix A100 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS scored 81, the GE A1250 scored 80, the Olympus VG-160 scored 77 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 scored only 73.

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.

Produces Better Quality Photos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Nikon Coolpix A100 produces better quality photos. More than 200 people thought that it had a very good picture quality and more than 60 people thought that it was also very able to produce good images. Two people also thought that it had a good image sensor.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix A100

29g Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix A100 has a weight of 119g, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is a 124g digital camera (5g heavier), the GE A1250 is a 145g digital camera (26g heavier), the Olympus VG-160 is a 125g digital camera (6g heavier) and the Philips SIC3608SG7 is a 90g digital camera (29g 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 A100 is a 20.1MP digital camera. That's 0.4MP lower than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (20.5MP), 7.9MP higher than the GE A1250 (12.2MP), 6.1MP higher than the Olympus VG-160 (14MP) and 12.1MP higher than the Philips SIC3608SG7 (8MP). 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.

30% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Olympus VG-160. That's 1.7x smaller than the GE A1250 (5.7x). 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.

Smaller Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is a 25MB internal memory digital camera. That's 1MB bigger than the GE A1250 (24MB) and 24MB smaller than the Olympus VG-160 (49MB). 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.

10% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon Coolpix A100 has a display diagonal of 2.7", and so does the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS. That's 0.2" larger than the GE A1250 (2.5") and 0.3" smaller than the Olympus VG-160 (3"). 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.

2% Narrower Field of View

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is a 98% field of view digital camera. That's 2% narrower than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (100%). 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Olympus VG-160. That's 4,000 pixels lower than the GE A1250 (234,000 Pixels). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon Coolpix A100 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the GE A1250, the Olympus VG-160 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 do. More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon Coolpix A100 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Olympus VG-160), but the GE A1250 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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 250 Battery Life

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is a digital camera that takes 250 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS only takes 255 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Philips SIC3608SG7. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Nikon Coolpix A100 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Olympus VG-160), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the GE A1250 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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 Nikon Coolpix A100 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the GE A1250 and the Olympus VG-160), however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

More Expensive by $53

The Nikon Coolpix A100 is $37 more expensive than the GE A1250, $20 more expensive than the Olympus VG-160 and $53 more expensive than the Philips SIC3608SG7.

Expert Review Rating is Hugely Worse

The Nikon Coolpix A100 only has an average expert score of 63%, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has an average expert rating of 77% (based on 6 reviews), the GE A1250 has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 1 review) and the Olympus VG-160 has an average expert rating of 64% (based on 5 reviews).

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Nikon Coolpix A100 has an average user score of 89%, but the Philips SIC3608SG7 has an average user rating of 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 83.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 85.3%.

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Nikon Coolpix A100 was a worse size.

The cheapest price that we found for the Coolpix A100 in the United States is $92.90 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS

12.5MP Higher Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has a megapixels of 20.5MP, but the GE A1250 is only a 12.2MP digital camera (8.3MP lower), the Nikon Coolpix A100 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (0.4MP lower), the Olympus VG-160 is only a 14MP digital camera (6.5MP lower) and the Philips SIC3608SG7 is only an 8MP digital camera (12.5MP 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160, which is 3 times higher video resolution as the GE A1250 (640 x 480 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Moderately Wider Field of View

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has a field of view of 100%, however the Nikon Coolpix A100 is only a 98% field of view digital camera (2% 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.

115 More Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS takes 255 battery life, however the GE A1250 only takes 140 Shots battery life, the Nikon Coolpix A100 only takes 250 Shots battery life and the Olympus VG-160 only takes 165 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Philips SIC3608SG7. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Overall Reviews Are Better

Based on 63 reviews, the average overall review score of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is 80%, whereas the average rating of the GE A1250 is 72% (based on 1 review), the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix A100 is 72% (based on 241 reviews) and the average rating of the Olympus VG-160 is 58% (based on 5 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 85.3%, but GE only has an average rating of 60.2%, Nikon only has an average rating of 83.6%, Olympus only has an average rating of 74.9% and Philips only has an average rating of 36.7%.

Better in Terms of Size

Our analysis of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS was better in terms of size. Several people thought that it was compact, was a good size and was lightweight.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS

22% Heavier

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is a 124g digital camera. That's 21g lighter than the GE A1250 (145g), 5g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix A100 (119g), 1g lighter than the Olympus VG-160 (125g) and 34g heavier than the Philips SIC3608SG7 (90g). 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 2048 X 1536 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536, which is 5 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix A100 (5120 x 2880). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. More ...

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

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

A Lot Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has a digital zoom of 4x (as do the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160), whereas the GE A1250 is a 5.7x digital zoom digital camera (1.7x 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.

1,600 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Olympus VG-160), whereas the Nikon Coolpix A100 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.

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is only 2.7" screen (as does the Nikon Coolpix A100), but the GE A1250 is a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller) and the Olympus VG-160 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.3" larger). More ...

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

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

4,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has a display resolution of 230,000 Pixels (as do the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160), however the GE A1250 is a 234,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (4,000 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160), whereas the GE A1250 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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 Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 81, whereas the Nikon Coolpix A100 scored 84.

$110 More Expensive

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is more expensive than the GE A1250 by $94, more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix A100 by $57, more expensive than the Olympus VG-160 by $78 and more expensive than the Philips SIC3608SG7 by $110.

Fewer Sellers

Only 2 shops sells the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, but 8 shops sell the Nikon Coolpix A100. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over One Year Older

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is older than the Nikon Coolpix A100 by 13 months.

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is only 77%, whereas the average expert rating of the GE A1250 is 90% (based on 1 review).

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Nikon Coolpix A100 is 89% (based on 235 reviews) and the Philips SIC3608SG7 is 100% (based on 1 review).

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus VG-160

Higher Video Resolution

The Olympus VG-160 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100, which is 3 times higher video resolution as the GE A1250 (640 x 480 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus VG-160 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100. But the best video resolution supported by the GE A1250 is 320 x 240 pixels (12 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. More ...

The Olympus VG-160 also supports 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels video resolutions.

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

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

A Lot Bigger Internal Memory

The Olympus VG-160 has an internal memory of 49MB, whereas the GE A1250 is only a 24MB internal memory digital camera (25MB smaller) and the Nikon Coolpix A100 is only a 25MB internal memory digital camera (24MB smaller). 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.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Olympus VG-160 is a 3" screen digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the GE A1250 and the Nikon Coolpix A100 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.

Built-in Flash

The Olympus VG-160 has a built-in flash (as does the GE A1250), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus VG-160

Heavier

The Olympus VG-160 is a 125g digital camera. That's 1g heavier than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (124g), 20g lighter than the GE A1250 (145g), 6g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix A100 (119g) and 35g heavier than the Philips SIC3608SG7 (90g). 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 Olympus VG-160 has a megapixels of 14MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100 are both 20.1MP digital cameras (6.1MP higher), the GE A1250 is a 12.2MP digital camera (1.8MP lower) and the Philips SIC3608SG7 is an 8MP digital camera (6MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Olympus VG-160 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, which is 3 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (2048 x 1536) and 12 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix A100 (5120 x 2880). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. 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.

1.7x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Olympus VG-160 has a digital zoom of 4x (as do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100), however the GE A1250 is a 5.7x digital zoom digital camera (1.7x 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 Olympus VG-160 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1,600 (as does the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS), however the Nikon Coolpix A100 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus VG-160 does not support Full HD video (As does the the GE A1250), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Hugely Lower Display Resolution

The Olympus VG-160 has a display resolution of 230,000 Pixels (as do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100), but the GE A1250 is a 234,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (4,000 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Olympus VG-160 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100), however the GE A1250 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

90 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Olympus VG-160 is 165, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS only takes 255 Shots battery life and the Nikon Coolpix A100 only takes 250 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Philips SIC3608SG7. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Olympus VG-160 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Nikon Coolpix A100), but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the GE A1250 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Olympus VG-160 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the GE A1250 and the Nikon Coolpix A100), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Philips SIC3608SG7 feature this benefit. 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 Olympus VG-160 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS scored 81, the GE A1250 scored 80 and the Nikon Coolpix A100 scored 84.

$32 More Expensive

The Olympus VG-160 is more expensive than the GE A1250 by $16 and more expensive than the Philips SIC3608SG7 by $32.

Less Retailers

Only 1 seller sell the Olympus VG-160, whereas 2 shops sell the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and 8 stores sell the Nikon Coolpix A100. More ...

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

The Olympus VG-160 is older than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS by 13 months and older than the Nikon Coolpix A100 by two years.

Vastly Lower Expert Review Score

4 Reasons For for Choosing the GE A1250

1.7x Bigger Digital Zoom

The GE A1250 has a digital zoom of 5.7x, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160 are all only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (1.7x 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.

Smile Detection

The GE A1250 features smile detection (as does the Nikon Coolpix A100), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Olympus VG-160 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Built-in Flash

The GE A1250 has a built-in flash (as does the Olympus VG-160), but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Expert Reviews Are a Lot Better

Based on 1 review, the average expert review score of the GE A1250 is 90%, whereas the average rating of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS is 77% (based on 6 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix A100 is 63% (based on 6 reviews) and the average rating of the Olympus VG-160 is 64% (based on 5 reviews).

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the GE A1250

Heavier

The GE A1250 is a 145g digital camera. That's 21g heavier than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (124g), 26g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix A100 (119g), 20g heavier than the Olympus VG-160 (125g) and 55g heavier than the Philips SIC3608SG7 (90g). 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 GE A1250 has a megapixels of 12.2MP, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100 are both 20.1MP digital cameras (7.9MP higher), the Olympus VG-160 is a 14MP digital camera (1.8MP higher) and the Philips SIC3608SG7 is an 8MP digital camera (4.2MP 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 640 X 480 Still Image Resolution

The GE A1250 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480, which is 10 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS (2048 x 1536), 48 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix A100 (5120 x 2880) and 4 times lower still image resolution as the Olympus VG-160 (1280 x 960). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The GE A1250 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Olympus VG-160), but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The GE A1250 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, which is 3 times lower video resolution as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the GE A1250 is 320 x 240 pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160 is 1280 x 720 pixels (12 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Philips SIC3608SG7 support. More ...

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

The GE A1250 has an internal memory of 24MB, but the Nikon Coolpix A100 is a 25MB internal memory digital camera (1MB bigger) and the Olympus VG-160 is a 49MB internal memory digital camera (25MB 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

GE A1250 is only 2.5" screen, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Nikon Coolpix A100 are both 2.7" screen digital cameras (0.2" larger) and the Olympus VG-160 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.5" larger). More ...

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

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

115 Less Battery Life

The GE A1250 takes 140 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS only takes 255 Shots battery life, the Nikon Coolpix A100 only takes 250 Shots battery life and the Olympus VG-160 only takes 165 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Philips SIC3608SG7. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The GE A1250 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Nikon Coolpix A100 and the Olympus VG-160), but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the Philips SIC3608SG7 feature this benefit. 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 GE A1250 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS scored 81 and the Nikon Coolpix A100 scored 84.

$16 More Expensive

The GE A1250 is more expensive than the Philips SIC3608SG7 by $16.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 shop sell the GE A1250, but 2 stores sell the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and 8 shops sell the Nikon Coolpix A100. More ...

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

The GE A1250 is older than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS by two years, older than the Nikon Coolpix A100 by four years and older than the Olympus VG-160 by 16 months.
