9 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

490g Lighter

The Polaroid IE826 has a weight of 105, whereas the Canon IXUS 130 is a 133g digital camera (28g heavier), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117g digital camera (12g heavier), the Nikon D70S is a 595g digital camera (490g heavier) and the Olympus VG-140 is a 125g digital camera (20g 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.

Higher Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826 is an 18 digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon IXUS 130 and the Olympus VG-140 (14MP), 1.85MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (16.15MP) and 11.9MP higher than the Nikon D70S (6.1MP). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon IXUS 130, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Olympus VG-140, however the Nikon D70S does 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Polaroid IE826 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Canon IXUS 130 scored only 74, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 83, the Nikon D70S scored 82 and the Olympus VG-140 scored only 74.

Cheaper by $7

The Polaroid IE826 costs $27.55, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is $35.00.

Considerably Better User Reviews

Based on 262 reviews, the Polaroid IE826 has an average user review score of 86%, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has an average rating of 70% (based on 122 reviews).

A Little Better Overall Reviews

Based on 263 reviews, the Polaroid IE826 has an average overall review score of 86%, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has an average rating of 70% (based on 122 reviews), the Nikon D70S has an average rating of 85% (based on 40 reviews) and the Olympus VG-140 has an average rating of 40% (based on 1 review).

A Better Size

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

Better Nice Technical Features

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Polaroid IE826 was better nice technical features. More than 10 people thought that it had good features.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826 is not waterproof, whereas the Canon IXUS 130, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D70S and the Olympus VG-140 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.

34% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Polaroid IE826 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon IXUS 130 and the Olympus VG-140. That's 2x smaller than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (6x). 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Polaroid IE826 is only 400 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,200 lower than the Canon IXUS 130, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D70S and the Olympus VG-140 (1,600). 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.

Only 110 Battery Life

The Polaroid IE826 is a digital camera that takes 110 battery life, whereas the Canon IXUS 130 only takes 230 battery life, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 only takes 120 battery life and the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D70S. 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.

Not As Many Stockists

The Polaroid IE826 is only stocked by 3 shops, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is stocked by 6 stores. More ...

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

The Polaroid IE826 is three years older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and three years older than the Nikon D70S.

Worse Brand

Polaroid digital cameras have an average rating of only 83.5%, however Canon has an average rating of 95% and Nikon has an average rating of 91.4%.

Has a Worse Price

On average reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826 has a worse price.

Harder to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Polaroid IE826 was harder to use.

Took Good Quality Pictures

The Polaroid IE826 reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826 took good quality pictures.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ43

2x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a digital zoom of 6, whereas the Canon IXUS 130, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 are all only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (2x 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 features smile detection, whereas the Canon IXUS 130, the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Full HD Video

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports Full HD video, however the Canon IXUS 130, the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 do not. 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.

Built-in Flash

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a built-in flash (as do the Canon IXUS 130, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826), but the Nikon D70S does 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Three Months Newer

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is six years newer than the Canon IXUS 130, three months newer than the Nikon D70S, four years newer than the Olympus VG-140 and three years newer than the Polaroid IE826

Easier to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 was easier to use. Over 20 people thought that it was very easy to use and two people thought that it was also easy to setup.

Took Good Quality Photos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 took good quality photos. Over 30 people thought that it was able to produce good images.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ43

Heavier

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117 digital camera. That's 16g lighter than the Canon IXUS 130 (133g), 478g lighter than the Nikon D70S (595g), 8g lighter than the Olympus VG-140 (125g) and 12g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a megapixels of 16.15, but the Canon IXUS 130 and the Olympus VG-140 are both 14MP digital cameras (2.15MP lower), the Nikon D70S is a 6.1MP digital camera (10.05MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (1.85MP 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 7 times lower still image resolution as the Olympus VG-140 (4288 x 3216). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Only 1080 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 1080 x 720 pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon IXUS 130, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D70S support. More ...

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 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.

Hugely Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has an internal memory of 8, but the Olympus VG-140 is a 49MB internal memory digital camera (41MB 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.

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is only 2.7 screen (as does the Canon IXUS 130), but the Olympus VG-140 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Olympus VG-140), but the Canon IXUS 130, the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not have a GPS (As does the the Canon IXUS 130), whereas the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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.

110 Less Battery Life

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 takes 120 battery life, however the Canon IXUS 130 only takes 230 battery life and the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D70S. 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Canon IXUS 130), however the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Canon IXUS 130), but the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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).

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon IXUS 130

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon IXUS 130 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826. However the best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 1080 x 720 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D70S support. More ...

The Canon IXUS 130 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.

HDMI

The Canon IXUS 130 has an HDMI, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 do not. 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.

120 More Battery Life

The Canon IXUS 130 takes 230 battery life, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 only takes 120 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life and the Polaroid IE826 only takes 110 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D70S. 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon IXUS 130 has a built-in flash (as do the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826), but the Nikon D70S does 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.

User Reviews Are a Lot Better

Based on 100 reviews, the average user review score of the Canon IXUS 130 is 86%, whereas the average rating of the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 70% (based on 122 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Marginally Better

Based on 100 reviews, the average overall review score of the Canon IXUS 130 is 86%, whereas the average rating of the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 70% (based on 122 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon D70S is 85% (based on 40 reviews) and the average rating of the Olympus VG-140 is 40% (based on 1 review).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but Kodak only has an average rating of 81%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.4%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82.3% and Polaroid only has an average rating of 83.5%.

Has a Better Price

The Canon IXUS 130 reviewers thought the Canon IXUS 130 has a better price.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon IXUS 130

18% Heavier

The Canon IXUS 130 is a 133 digital camera. That's 16g heavier than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (117g), 462g lighter than the Nikon D70S (595g), 8g heavier than the Olympus VG-140 (125g) and 28g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (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 IXUS 130 has a megapixels of 14.1, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 16.15MP digital camera (2.05MP higher), the Nikon D70S is a 6.1MP digital camera (8MP lower), the Olympus VG-140 is a 14MP digital camera (0.1MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (3.9MP 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 IXUS 130 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, which is 7 times lower still image resolution as the Olympus VG-140 (4288 x 3216). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

2x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon IXUS 130 has a digital zoom of 4 (as do the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826), whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 6x digital zoom digital camera (2x 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.

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

Canon IXUS 130 is only 2.7 screen (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), but the Olympus VG-140 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon IXUS 130 does not have a GPS (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), whereas the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Canon IXUS 130 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), however the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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 Canon IXUS 130 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), but the Nikon D70S, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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 Canon IXUS 130 has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 83, the Nikon D70S scored 82 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 86.

Not Currently Available

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

You can sign up to a price alert to be notified when this product becomes available.
Over Five Years Older

The Canon IXUS 130 is older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 by six years, older than the Nikon D70S by six years, older than the Olympus VG-140 by two years and older than the Polaroid IE826 by three years.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Nikon D70S

Expert Reviews Are Hugely Better

The average expert review score of the Nikon D70S is 85% based on 40 reviews, but the average rating of the Olympus VG-140 is 50% (based on 1 review).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D70S

46% Heavier

The Nikon D70S is a 595 digital camera. That's 462g heavier than the Canon IXUS 130 (133g), 478g heavier than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (117g), 470g heavier than the Olympus VG-140 (125g) and 490g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (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.

11.9MP Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D70S has a megapixels of 6.1, however the Canon IXUS 130 and the Olympus VG-140 are both 14MP digital cameras (7.9MP higher), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 16.15MP digital camera (10.05MP higher) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (11.9MP 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D70S has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 83 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 86.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the Nikon D70S, however 6 retailers sell the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and 3 stores sell the Polaroid IE826. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Three Months Older

The Nikon D70S is older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 by three months.

Marginally Lower Overall Review Score

The Nikon D70S has an average overall rating of 85%, but the Canon IXUS 130 has an average overall rating of 86% (based on 100 reviews) and the Polaroid IE826 has an average overall rating of 86% (based on 263 reviews).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.4%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the D70S in the US is $30.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus VG-140

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Olympus VG-140 supports a still image resolution of 4288 x 3216, whereas the Canon IXUS 130 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200 and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus VG-140 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon IXUS 130 and the Polaroid IE826. But the best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 1080 x 720 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D70S support. More ...

The Olympus VG-140 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.

46% Bigger Internal Memory

The Olympus VG-140 is a 49 internal memory digital camera. That's 41MB bigger than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (8MB). 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

The Olympus VG-140 is a 3 screen digital camera. That's 0.3" larger than the Canon IXUS 130 and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (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.

Built-in Flash

The Olympus VG-140 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon IXUS 130, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Polaroid IE826, whereas the Nikon D70S does 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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus VG-140

Heavier

The Olympus VG-140 has a weight of 125, but the Canon IXUS 130 is a 133g digital camera (8g heavier), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117g digital camera (8g lighter), the Nikon D70S is a 595g digital camera (470g heavier) and the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (20g 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.

4MP Lower Megapixels

The Olympus VG-140 is a 14 digital camera. That's 0.1MP lower than the Canon IXUS 130 (14.1MP), 2.15MP lower than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (16.15MP), 7.9MP higher than the Nikon D70S (6.1MP) and 4MP lower than the Polaroid IE826 (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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Olympus VG-140 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon IXUS 130 and the Polaroid IE826. That's 2x smaller than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (6x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus VG-140 does not support Full HD video, whereas the Canon IXUS 130, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 do. More ...

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

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

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Olympus VG-140 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), whereas the Canon IXUS 130, the Nikon D70S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Only 165 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Olympus VG-140 is 165, but the Canon IXUS 130 only takes 230 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D70S. 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 Olympus VG-140 has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 83, the Nikon D70S scored 82 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 86.

Less Retailers

The Olympus VG-140 is only stocked by 1 store, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is stocked by 6 shops and the Polaroid IE826 is stocked by 3 stores. More ...

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