5 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

Better Kagoo Score

The Kodak Printomatic has received a Kagoo Score of 89, however the Canon PowerShot A2300 scored 81, the Olympus VG-140 scored only 75, the Pentax Efina scored only 79 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 87.

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.

On average reviewers thought the Kodak Printomatic was easier to use. Over 10 people thought that it was really easy to use.

Has Useful Technical Features

Our analysis of the Kodak Printomatic reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Kodak Printomatic has useful technical features. More than 10 people thought that it had superb features.

Produces Better Quality Pictures

The Kodak Printomatic reviewers thought the Kodak Printomatic produces better quality pictures. More than 10 people thought that it had a very good picture quality and was able to produce good images.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

A Lot Heavier

The Kodak Printomatic has a weight of 317, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 109g digital camera (208g lighter), the Olympus VG-140 is a 125g digital camera (192g lighter), the Pentax Efina is a 91g digital camera (226g lighter) and the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (212g 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 Kodak Printomatic is a 10 digital camera. That's 6MP lower than the Canon PowerShot A2300 (16MP), 4MP lower than the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina (14MP) and 8MP 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.

Only 60 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Kodak Printomatic is 60, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life, the Pentax Efina only takes 200 battery life and the Polaroid IE826 only takes 110 battery life. More ...

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 (As do the the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Pentax Efina), but the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 81%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Olympus has an average rating of 82.8%, Pentax has an average rating of 82.5% and Polaroid has an average rating of 84.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Printomatic in the US is $30.00 and in total we found 11 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

Higher Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826 is an 18 digital camera. That's 2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot A2300 (16MP), 8MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP) and 4MP higher than the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina (14MP). 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.

4608 X 3456 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels (as is the Canon PowerShot A2300), whereas the Pentax Efina only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon PowerShot A2300, the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina, however the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Cheaper by $102

The Polaroid IE826 costs $27.55, whereas the Canon PowerShot A2300 is $129.99.

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 262 reviews, the Polaroid IE826 has an average user review score of 86%, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 has an average rating of 85% (based on 19 reviews).

Considerably Better Overall Reviews

Based on 263 reviews, the Polaroid IE826 has an average overall review score of 86%, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 has an average rating of 76% (based on 33 reviews) and the Olympus VG-140 has an average rating of 40% (based on 1 review).

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

14g Heavier

The Polaroid IE826 has a weight of 105, whereas the Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 109g digital camera (4g heavier), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (212g heavier), the Olympus VG-140 is a 125g digital camera (20g heavier) and the Pentax Efina is a 91g digital camera (14g 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.

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826 is not waterproof (As does the the Canon PowerShot A2300), whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina 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 IE826 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Olympus VG-140. That's 1x smaller than the Pentax Efina (5x). More ...

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

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

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Polaroid IE826 is only 400 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,200 lower than the Canon PowerShot A2300, the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina (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 PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life and the Pentax Efina only takes 200 battery life. More ...

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 IE826 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Kodak Printomatic scored 89.

Not As Many Stockists

The Polaroid IE826 is only stocked by 5 stores, however the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 11 shops. 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 Four Years

The Polaroid IE826 is four years older than the Kodak Printomatic and one month older than the Pentax Efina.

Worse Brand

Polaroid digital cameras have an average rating of only 84.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Harder to Use

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

Worse Nice Technical Features

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Polaroid IE826 was worse nice technical features.

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

The Polaroid IE826 is 58mm wide, 95mm tall, 23mm deep and weighs 105g.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot A2300

Higher Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot A2300 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, and so is the Polaroid IE826, but the Pentax Efina only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 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.

150 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon PowerShot A2300 is 210, but the Kodak Printomatic only takes 60 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life, the Pentax Efina only takes 200 battery life and the Polaroid IE826 only takes 110 battery life. More ...

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 PowerShot A2300 has a built-in flash (as do the Olympus VG-140, the Pentax Efina and the Polaroid IE826), whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Expert Reviews Are Vastly Better

Based on 14 expert reviews, the average review score of the Canon PowerShot A2300 is 72%, however the average rating of the Olympus VG-140 is 50% (based on 1 review).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, whereas Kodak only has an average rating of 81%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82.8%, Pentax only has an average rating of 82.5% and Polaroid only has an average rating of 84.6%.

Better Parentesis.com Review Score

Parentesis.com's Canon PowerShot A2300 review gave it a score of 70%, whereas the Olympus VG-140 only has a rating of 50% from the same site.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot A2300

Heavier

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 109 digital camera. That's 208g lighter than the Kodak Printomatic (317g), 16g lighter than the Olympus VG-140 (125g), 18g heavier than the Pentax Efina (91g) and 4g 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.

2MP Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot A2300 has a megapixels of 16, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is a 10MP digital camera (6MP lower), the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina are both 14MP digital cameras (2MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (2MP higher). More ...

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

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

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot A2300 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 Kodak Printomatic 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.

Not Waterproof

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is not waterproof (As does the the Polaroid IE826), but the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina 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.

Not Dustproof

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is not dustproof, whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140, the Pentax Efina and the Polaroid IE826 are. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

20% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot A2300 has a digital zoom of 4 (as do the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826), however the Pentax Efina is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot A2300 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Olympus VG-140), whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Pentax Efina and the Polaroid IE826 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.

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 2.7 screen digital camera, whereas the Olympus VG-140 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.3" larger) and the Pentax Efina is a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.2" 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Canon PowerShot A2300 does not have an HDMI (As do the the Olympus VG-140 and the Pentax Efina), whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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 Canon PowerShot A2300 does not have a GPS, however the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140, the Pentax Efina 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 PowerShot A2300 does not support Wi-Fi (As do the the Kodak Printomatic and the Pentax Efina), but 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 PowerShot A2300 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Pentax Efina), whereas the Kodak Printomatic, 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 PowerShot A2300 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, however the Kodak Printomatic scored 89 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 87.

$102 More Expensive

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is more expensive than the Kodak Printomatic by $100, more expensive than the Olympus VG-140 by $100, more expensive than the Pentax Efina by $100 and more expensive than the Polaroid IE826 by $102.

Less Retailers

Only 1 shop sell the Canon PowerShot A2300, whereas 11 stores sell the Kodak Printomatic and 5 stores sell the Polaroid IE826. More ...

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

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is older than the Kodak Printomatic by five years, older than the Olympus VG-140 by one month, older than the Pentax Efina by 14 months and older than the Polaroid IE826 by 13 months.

Slightly Lower User Review Score

The Canon PowerShot A2300's average user rating is 85%, however the Polaroid IE826's is 86% (based on 262 reviews).

Appreciably Lower Overall Review Score

The Canon PowerShot A2300's average overall rating is only 76%, however the Kodak Printomatic's is 90% (based on 0 reviews) and the Polaroid IE826's is 86% (based on 263 reviews).

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax Efina

226g Lighter

The Pentax Efina has a weight of 91, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 109g digital camera (18g heavier), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (226g heavier), the Olympus VG-140 is a 125g digital camera (34g heavier) and the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (14g heavier). More ...

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

17% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Pentax Efina is a 5 digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Canon PowerShot A2300, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826 (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.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax Efina

4MP Lower Megapixels

The Pentax Efina is a 14 digital camera, and so does the Olympus VG-140. That's 2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot A2300 (16MP), 4MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP) 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.

Smaller Internal Memory

The Pentax Efina is a 32 internal memory digital camera. That's 17MB smaller than the Olympus VG-140 (49MB). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Pentax Efina is a 2.5 screen digital camera. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon PowerShot A2300 (2.7") and 0.5" smaller than the Olympus VG-140 (3"). More ...

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

Only 200 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Pentax Efina is 200, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life. More ...

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.

4 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 PowerShot A2300 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200 and the Pentax Efina supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

26% Bigger Internal Memory

The Olympus VG-140 is a 49 internal memory digital camera. That's 17MB bigger than the Pentax Efina (32MB). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Olympus VG-140 is a 3 screen digital camera. That's 0.5" larger than the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Pentax Efina (2.5"). 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 PowerShot A2300, the Pentax Efina and the Polaroid IE826, whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus VG-140

Heavier

The Olympus VG-140 has a weight of 125, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 is a 109g digital camera (16g lighter), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (192g heavier), the Pentax Efina is a 91g digital camera (34g lighter) 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, and so does the Pentax Efina. That's 2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot A2300 (16MP), 4MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP) 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.

20% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Olympus VG-140 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Polaroid IE826. That's 1x smaller than the Pentax Efina (5x). More ...

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

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

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus VG-140 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Canon PowerShot A2300), whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Pentax Efina 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 do the the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Pentax Efina), whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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 PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life and the Pentax Efina only takes 200 battery life. More ...

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 75, however the Canon PowerShot A2300 scored 81, the Kodak Printomatic scored 89, the Pentax Efina scored 79 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 87.

Less Retailers

The Olympus VG-140 is only stocked by 1 shop, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 11 stores and the Polaroid IE826 is stocked by 5 retailers. 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.
Older by Over Five Years

The Olympus VG-140 is five years older than the Kodak Printomatic, 13 months older than the Pentax Efina and one year older than the Polaroid IE826.

Expert Review Rating is Vastly Worse

The Olympus VG-140's average expert score is only 50%, however the Canon PowerShot A2300's is 72% (based on 14 reviews).

Worse Brand

Olympus digital cameras have an average rating of only 82.8%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Polaroid has an average rating of 84.6%.

Worse Parentesis.com Review Score

The Olympus VG-140 has only received a review score of 50% from Parentesis.com, whereas the Canon PowerShot A2300 has a score of 70%.
