7 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS

Marginally Larger Display Diagonal

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is 3" screen (as do the Nikon 1 S1, the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (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.

60 More Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS takes 260 battery life, however the Nikon 1 S1 only takes 220 Shots battery life, the Pentax VS20 only takes 200 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 only takes 210 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung PL150. 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.

Nine More Awards

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has received 9 awards, but the Nikon 1 S1 has received 2 awards, the Pentax VS20 has received no awards, the Samsung PL150 has received 2 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 has received 2 awards.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 85.3%, but Nikon only has an average rating of 83.6%, Pentax only has an average rating of 68.2%, Samsung only has an average rating of 73.7% and Sony only has an average rating of 81.6%.

More Reasonably Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS was more reasonably priced.

More Nicely Designed

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS was more nicely designed. Over 20 people thought that it was very good-looking and several people thought that it was also well designed, had a good case and was smooth.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS

34% Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 215g digital camera. That's 18g heavier than the Nikon 1 S1 (197g), 45g heavier than the Pentax VS20 (170g), 79g heavier than the Samsung PL150 (136g) and 110g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (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 Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has a megapixels of 14.1MP, but the Nikon 1 S1 is a 10.1MP digital camera (4MP lower), the Pentax VS20 is a 16MP digital camera (1.9MP higher), the Samsung PL150 is a 12.4MP digital camera (1.7MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is an 18.2MP digital camera (4.1MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 1600 X 1200 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, which is 3 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon 1 S1 (2896 x 1944). 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.

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has a digital zoom of 4x, whereas the Pentax VS20 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (3.2x bigger), the Samsung PL150 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 20x digital zoom digital camera (16x 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.

11,200 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon 1 S1 and the Pentax VS20 are both 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (4,800 higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (11,200 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.

38% Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 10s flash recharging time digital camera. That's 6s slower than the Samsung PL150 (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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS does not support Full HD video (As does the the Pentax VS20), but the Nikon 1 S1, the Samsung PL150 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 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 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150, which is half as high video resolution as the Nikon 1 S1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

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

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Pentax VS20. However the best video resolution supported by the Nikon 1 S1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Samsung PL150 support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has a display resolution of 230,000 Pixels (as does the Samsung PL150), however the Nikon 1 S1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 460,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,800 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 SX210 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Nikon 1 S1 scored 84, the Pentax VS20 scored 76, the Samsung PL150 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 scored 83.

Not Currently Available

This digital camera does not seem to be currently available. More ...

A Little Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is only 78%, whereas the average expert rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 80% (based on 12 reviews).

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung PL150

Vastly Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung PL150 has a flash recharging time of 4s, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 10s flash recharging time digital camera (6s 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.

41% Bigger Internal Memory

The Samsung PL150 is a 50MB internal memory digital camera. That's 34MB bigger than the Pentax VS20 (16MB). 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Samsung PL150 is 3" screen, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Nikon 1 S1 and the Pentax VS20. That's 0.3" larger than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (2.7"). 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 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Pocket Lint and PhotographyBlog.com both gave the Samsung PL150 a better review score. More ...

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung PL150

19% Heavier

The Samsung PL150 has a weight of 136g, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 215g digital camera (79g heavier), the Nikon 1 S1 is a 197g digital camera (61g heavier), the Pentax VS20 is a 170g digital camera (34g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 105g digital camera (31g 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.

32% Lower Megapixels

The Samsung PL150 is a 12.4MP digital camera. That's 1.7MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (14.1MP), 2.3MP higher than the Nikon 1 S1 (10.1MP), 3.6MP lower than the Pentax VS20 (16MP) and 5.8MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (18.2MP). 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 Samsung PL150 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, the Nikon 1 S1 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944 and the Pentax VS20 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). More ...

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

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

Only 4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Samsung PL150 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, however the Pentax VS20 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Samsung PL150 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (4x), 2.2x smaller than the Pentax VS20 (7.2x) and 15x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (20x). 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Samsung PL150 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS and the Pentax VS20), but the Nikon 1 S1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. More ...

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

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung PL150 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS. That's 230,000 pixels lower than the Nikon 1 S1 (460,000 Pixels) and 230,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (460,800 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 PL150 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Nikon 1 S1 scored 84 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 scored 83.

More Expensive by $6

The Samsung PL150 is $6 more expensive than the Nikon 1 S1.

Fewer Sellers

The Samsung PL150 is only stocked by 1 seller, but the Nikon 1 S1 is stocked by 3 shops and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is stocked by 3 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over Three Years

The Samsung PL150 is four years older than the Nikon 1 S1, 14 months older than the Pentax VS20 and four years older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220.

Seven Less Awards

The Samsung PL150 has only received 2 awards, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has received 9 awards.

Worse Brand

Samsung digital cameras have an average rating of only 73.7%, but Canon has an average rating of 85.3%, Nikon has an average rating of 83.6% and Sony has an average rating of 81.6%.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon 1 S1

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Nikon 1 S1 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, the Pentax VS20 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and the Samsung PL150 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768. More ...

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

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

Full HD Video

The Nikon 1 S1 supports Full HD video (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220), but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150 do not support this feature. More ...

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

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon 1 S1 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150 have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. More ...

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

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon 1 S1 is a 3" screen digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150. That's 0.3" larger than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (2.7"). 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 Nikon 1 S1 has an HDMI (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220), but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Pentax VS20 and the Samsung PL150 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 Nikon 1 S1 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS scored 75, the Pentax VS20 scored 76, the Samsung PL150 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 scored 83.

Cheaper by $6

The Nikon 1 S1 costs $80.02 less than the Pentax VS20, costs $5.99 less than the Samsung PL150 and costs $84 less than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Newer by Four Months

The Nikon 1 S1 was released four years after the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, released three years after the Pentax VS20, released four years after the Samsung PL150 and released four months after the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220

Better User Reviews

The Nikon 1 S1 has an average user review score of 96% based on 11 reviews, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has an average rating of 85% (based on 198 reviews), the Samsung PL150 has an average rating of 81% (based on 61 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 has an average rating of 88% (based on 84 reviews).

A Better Size

On average reviewers thought the Nikon 1 S1 was a better size. Several people thought that it was compact, was a good size and was a big size.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon 1 S1

A Lot Heavier

The Nikon 1 S1 has a weight of 197g, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 215g digital camera (18g heavier), the Pentax VS20 is a 170g digital camera (27g lighter), the Samsung PL150 is a 136g digital camera (61g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 105g digital camera (92g 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.

45% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon 1 S1 is a 10.1MP digital camera. That's 4MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (14.1MP), 5.9MP lower than the Pentax VS20 (16MP), 2.3MP lower than the Samsung PL150 (12.4MP) and 8.1MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (18.2MP). 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon 1 S1 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 6,400, and so does the Pentax VS20. That's 4,800 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (1,600) and 6,400 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (12,800). 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.

64% Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon 1 S1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 230,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS and the Samsung PL150 (230,000 Pixels) and 800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (460,800 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.

Only 220 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Nikon 1 S1 is 220, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS only takes 260 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung PL150. 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 1 S1 does not support Wi-Fi, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Pentax VS20, the Samsung PL150 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 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.

Seven Less Awards

The Nikon 1 S1 has only received 2 awards, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has received 9 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Much Worse

The Nikon 1 S1's average expert score is only 70%, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS's is 78% (based on 63 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220's is 80% (based on 12 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is a Bit Worse

The Nikon 1 S1's average overall score is 80%, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS's is 83% (based on 261 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220's is 84% (based on 96 reviews).

Worse Brand

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

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax VS20

Higher Image Resolution

The Pentax VS20 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, however the Samsung PL150 only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 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.

A Bit Larger Display Diagonal

Pentax VS20 is 3" screen (as do the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, the Nikon 1 S1 and the Samsung PL150), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (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.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Gadgetspeak.com and Lydogbilde.no both gave the Pentax VS20 a better review score. More ...

Gadgetspeak.com: Pentax VS20 = 80% vs Samsung PL150 = 68%

Lydogbilde.no: Pentax VS20 = 50% vs Canon PowerShot SX210 IS = 17%

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax VS20

28% Heavier

The Pentax VS20 is a 170g digital camera. That's 45g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (215g), 27g lighter than the Nikon 1 S1 (197g), 34g heavier than the Samsung PL150 (136g) and 65g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (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 Pentax VS20 has a megapixels of 16MP, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 14.1MP digital camera (1.9MP lower), the Nikon 1 S1 is a 10.1MP digital camera (5.9MP lower), the Samsung PL150 is a 12.4MP digital camera (3.6MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is an 18.2MP 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Pentax VS20 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 3 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon 1 S1 (2896 x 1944). 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.

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Pentax VS20 has a digital zoom of 7.2x, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (3.2x smaller), the Samsung PL150 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (2.2x smaller) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 20x digital zoom digital camera (12.8x 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.

6,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Pentax VS20 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Nikon 1 S1), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Pentax VS20 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS), but the Nikon 1 S1, the Samsung PL150 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 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 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Pentax VS20 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS and the Samsung PL150, which is half as high video resolution as the Nikon 1 S1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

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

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax VS20 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS. However the best video resolution supported by the Nikon 1 S1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Samsung PL150 support. More ...

The Pentax VS20 also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

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

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

34MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Pentax VS20 has an internal memory of 16MB, but the Samsung PL150 is a 50MB internal memory digital camera (34MB 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.

60 Less Battery Life

The Pentax VS20 takes 200 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS only takes 260 Shots battery life, the Nikon 1 S1 only takes 220 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 only takes 210 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung PL150. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax VS20 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, whereas the Nikon 1 S1 scored 84, the Samsung PL150 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 scored 83.

$80 More Expensive

The Pentax VS20 is more expensive than the Nikon 1 S1 by $80 and more expensive than the Samsung PL150 by $74.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 store sell the Pentax VS20, but 3 shops sell the Nikon 1 S1 and 3 stores sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220. More ...

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

The Pentax VS20 is older than the Nikon 1 S1 by three years and older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 by two years.

Significantly Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Pentax VS20 is only 53%, whereas the average expert rating of the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is 78% (based on 63 reviews), the Nikon 1 S1 is 70% (based on 46 reviews), the Samsung PL150 is 69% (based on 31 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 80% (based on 12 reviews).

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX220

Lighter

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is a 105g digital camera. That's 110g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (215g), 92g lighter than the Nikon 1 S1 (197g), 65g lighter than the Pentax VS20 (170g) and 31g lighter than the Samsung PL150 (136g). 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 Higher Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 has a megapixels of 18.2MP, but the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is only a 14.1MP digital camera (4.1MP lower), the Nikon 1 S1 is only a 10.1MP digital camera (8.1MP lower), the Pentax VS20 is only a 16MP digital camera (2.2MP lower) and the Samsung PL150 is only a 12.4MP digital camera (5.8MP lower). More ...

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.

16x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 has a digital zoom of 20x, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (16x smaller), the Pentax VS20 is only a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (12.8x smaller) and the Samsung PL150 is only a 5x digital zoom digital camera (15x 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.

This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon 1 S1. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS and the Pentax VS20 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Samsung PL150 support. More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 also supports 1440 x 1080 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

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

Worse for Sports Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is worse for sports photography than the Nikon 1 S1. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is 92.3mm wide, 52.4mm tall, 21.6mm deep and weighs 105g.
