3 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

Better Kagoo Score

The Kodak Printomatic has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS scored only 74, the Polaroid IE826RED scored 85, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B scored only 78 and the Vivitar X022 scored only 78.

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.

Newer by Four Years

The Kodak Printomatic was released seven years after the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, released four years after the Polaroid IE826RED, released four years after the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B and released four years after the Vivitar X022

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

217g Heavier

The Kodak Printomatic has a weight of 317, but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 165g digital camera (152g lighter), the Polaroid IE826RED is a 105g digital camera (212g lighter), the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 628g digital camera (311g heavier) and the Vivitar X022 is a 100g digital camera (217g 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 Kodak Printomatic is a 10 digital camera. That's 2.1MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (12.1MP), 8MP lower than the Polaroid IE826RED (18MP), 10.1MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (20.1MP) and 0.1MP lower than the Vivitar X022 (10.1MP). More ...

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

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

Only 60 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Kodak Printomatic is 60, but the Polaroid IE826RED only takes 110 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B only takes 300 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS or the Vivitar X022. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Kodak Printomatic does not support Wi-Fi, but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Polaroid IE826RED, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B and the Vivitar X022 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.

More Expensive by $7

The Kodak Printomatic is $6 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, $7 more expensive than the Polaroid IE826RED and $5 more expensive than the Vivitar X022.

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 80.7%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Polaroid has an average rating of 84.7% and Sony has an average rating of 88.4%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Printomatic in the US is $35.00 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826RED

4608 X 3456 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Polaroid IE826RED has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, whereas the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels and the Vivitar X022 only has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum image resolution the Kodak Printomatic have. 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.

1,998ms Faster Start-Up Time

The Polaroid IE826RED has a start-up time of 2, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 2,000ms start-up time digital camera (1,998ms slower). More ...

'Start-up time' measures how long it takes the camera to start working when you press the power button.

Faster start-up times mean the camera will be ready to use faster, which means there is less chance of losing a good shot because your camera was still getting itself ready.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826RED has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B, however the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 do not. More ...

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

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.

Cheaper by $7

The Polaroid IE826RED costs $27.55, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is $35.00 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is $448.00.

A Bit Better Overall Reviews

Based on 263 reviews, the Polaroid IE826RED has an average overall review score of 86%, but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has an average rating of 79% (based on 45 reviews), the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has an average rating of 85% (based on 252 reviews) and the Vivitar X022 has an average rating of 60% (based on 147 reviews).

Has a Better Price

The Polaroid IE826RED reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826RED has a better price.

A Better Size

The Polaroid IE826RED reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826RED was a better size. Several people thought that the Polaroid IE826 was really compact, was really easy to carry around and was a good size.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826RED

A Little Heavier

The Polaroid IE826RED has a weight of 105, whereas the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 165g digital camera (60g heavier), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (212g heavier), the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 628g digital camera (523g heavier) and the Vivitar X022 is a 100g digital camera (5g 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.

11% Lower Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826RED is an 18 digital camera. That's 5.9MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (12.1MP), 7.9MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 (10.1MP) and 2.1MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (20.1MP). More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826RED is not waterproof (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B), whereas the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 are. More ...

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

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

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Polaroid IE826RED is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS and the Vivitar X022. That's 122x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (126x). 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.

97% Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Polaroid IE826RED is only 400 maximum ISO speed. That's 12,400 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Polaroid IE826RED has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IE826RED is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 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.

Only 110 Battery Life

The Polaroid IE826RED is a digital camera that takes 110 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B only takes 300 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS or the Vivitar X022. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Polaroid IE826RED has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Kodak Printomatic scored 88.

Not As Many Stockists

The Polaroid IE826RED is only stocked by 5 retailers, however the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 8 stores. More ...

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS

1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.7)" Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.7)" image sensor size, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B only has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Built-in Flash

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a built-in flash, and so do the Polaroid IE826RED and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B, but the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 do not. More ...

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

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.

Six More Awards

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has received 6 awards from expert review sites, but the Kodak Printomatic has received no awards, the Polaroid IE826RED has received no awards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has received 1 award and the Vivitar X022 has received no awards.

Slightly Better Expert Reviews

Based on 35 expert reviews, the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has an average review score of 80%, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has an average rating of 77% (based on 22 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but Kodak only has an average rating of 80.7%, Polaroid only has an average rating of 84.7%, Sony only has an average rating of 88.4% and Vivitar only has an average rating of 67.1%.

Has a Better Design

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a better design. Several people thought that it was really well designed and was good-looking.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS

A Lot Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a weight of 165, however the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (152g heavier), the Polaroid IE826RED is a 105g digital camera (60g lighter), the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 628g digital camera (463g heavier) and the Vivitar X022 is a 100g digital camera (65g 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.

40% Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 12.1 digital camera. That's 2MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 (10.1MP), 5.9MP lower than the Polaroid IE826RED (18MP) and 8MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (20.1MP). More ...

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

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

Only 4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, however the Polaroid IE826RED has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum image resolution the Kodak Printomatic have. 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 Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022. That's 122x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (126x). 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 Display Diagonal

Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is only 2.5 screen. That's 0.5" smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (3") and 0.7" larger than the Vivitar X022 (1.8"). 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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 230 display resolution digital camera. That's 691,600 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (921,600 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 Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, whereas the Kodak Printomatic scored 88, the Polaroid IE826RED scored 85, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B scored 78 and the Vivitar X022 scored 78.

Fewer Sellers

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is only stocked by 1 seller, but the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 8 stores, the Polaroid IE826RED is stocked by 5 shops and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...

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

The Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is seven years older than the Kodak Printomatic, three years older than the Polaroid IE826RED, four years older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B and three years older than the Vivitar X022.

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The average user rating of the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is only 70%, whereas the average user rating of the Polaroid IE826RED is 86% (based on 262 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is 89% (based on 230 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The average overall rating of the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is only 79%, whereas the average overall rating of the Polaroid IE826RED is 86% (based on 263 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is 85% (based on 252 reviews).

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS was a worse size.

17 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSCHX400B

Higher Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 20.1 digital camera. That's 8MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (12.1MP), 10MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 (10.1MP) and 2.1MP higher than the Polaroid IE826RED (18MP). 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.

50% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 126 digital zoom digital camera. That's 122x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 (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.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B features smile detection, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 do not. More ...

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

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

Full HD Video

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B supports Full HD video, but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, whereas the Polaroid IE826RED only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 have. More ...

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

Twice As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IE826RED is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 support. More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B 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.

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.

29% Larger Display Diagonal

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 3 screen digital camera. That's 0.5" larger than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (2.5") and 1.2" larger than the Vivitar X022 (1.8"). 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 HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has a GPS, whereas the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 do not. 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.

300 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is 300, but the Kodak Printomatic only takes 60 battery life and the Polaroid IE826RED only takes 110 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS or the Vivitar X022. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Wi-Fi

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B supports Wi-Fi, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 do not support this feature. More ...

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSCHX400B

528g Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has a weight of 628, but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 165g digital camera (463g lighter), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (311g lighter), the Polaroid IE826RED is a 105g digital camera (523g lighter) and the Vivitar X022 is a 100g digital camera (528g 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.

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

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Not Waterproof

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is not waterproof (As does the the Polaroid IE826RED), but the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic and the Vivitar X022 are. More ...

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B does not feature bluetooth, whereas the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Vivitar X022 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.

Less Retailers

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is only stocked by 2 stores, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 8 stores and the Polaroid IE826RED is stocked by 5 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Vivitar X022

Vastly Lighter

The Vivitar X022 has a weight of 100, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is a 165g digital camera (65g heavier), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (217g heavier), the Polaroid IE826RED is a 105g digital camera (5g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B is a 628g digital camera (528g 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Vivitar X022

50% Lower Megapixels

The Vivitar X022 is a 10.1 digital camera. That's 2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (12.1MP), 0.1MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP), 7.9MP lower than the Polaroid IE826RED (18MP) and 10MP lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (20.1MP). More ...

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

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

Half As High Image Resolution

The Vivitar X022 has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels and the Polaroid IE826RED has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum image resolution the Kodak Printomatic have. 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 Vivitar X022 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS and the Polaroid IE826RED. That's 122x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (126x). 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 Display Diagonal

Vivitar X022 is only 1.8 screen. That's 0.7" smaller than the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS (2.5") and 1.2" smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX400B (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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Vivitar X022 has only received a Kagoo Score of 78, whereas the Kodak Printomatic scored 88 and the Polaroid IE826RED scored 85.
