10 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826RED

Significantly Lighter

The Polaroid IE826RED 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 Polaroid ONESTEP2 is a 475g digital camera (370g 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.

31% Higher Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826RED 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 (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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826RED has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon PowerShot A2300, the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid ONESTEP2, 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Polaroid IE826RED has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 scored 82, the Kodak Printomatic scored 79, the Olympus VG-140 scored only 67 and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 scored 79.

Cheaper by $25

The Polaroid IE826RED costs $25.00, whereas the Polaroid ONESTEP2 is $49.99.

Moderately Better User Reviews

Based on 262 reviews, the Polaroid IE826RED has an average user review score of 86%, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 has an average rating of 85% (based on 19 reviews).

Much Better Overall Reviews

Based on 263 reviews, the Polaroid IE826RED 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).

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.

Easier to Use

Our analysis of the Polaroid IE826RED reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826RED was easier to use. Over 20 people thought that the Polaroid IE826 was very easy to use and two people thought that it was also easy to setup.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826RED

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826RED is not waterproof (As do the the Canon PowerShot A2300 and the Polaroid ONESTEP2), whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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.

75% Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Polaroid IE826RED is only 400 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,200 lower than the Canon PowerShot A2300 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 IE826RED is a digital camera that takes 110 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life and the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 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.

Not As Many Stockists

The Polaroid IE826RED is only stocked by 4 retailers, however the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 5 shops and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 is stocked by 5 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers 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 IE826RED is four years older than the Kodak Printomatic and four years older than the Polaroid ONESTEP2.

Worse Brand

Polaroid digital cameras have an average rating of only 83.4%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Has Useful Technical Features

Our analysis of the Polaroid IE826RED reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826RED has useful technical features.

Took Good Quality Pictures

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

Cheaper by $25

The Kodak Printomatic costs $24.99 less than the Polaroid ONESTEP2.

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.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Printomatic

212g 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 Polaroid IE826RED is a 105g digital camera (212g lighter) and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 is a 475g digital camera (158g 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.

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 (14MP) and 8MP lower 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.

Only 60 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Kodak Printomatic is 60, and so does the Polaroid ONESTEP2, but the Canon PowerShot A2300 only takes 210 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life and the Polaroid IE826RED 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 Polaroid ONESTEP2), but the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826RED 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 Kagoo Score

The Kodak Printomatic has received a Kagoo Score of 79, however the Canon PowerShot A2300 scored 82 and the Polaroid IE826RED scored 85.

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 80.3%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Olympus has an average rating of 82.2% and Polaroid has an average rating of 83.4%.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot A2300

150 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon PowerShot A2300 is 210, but the Polaroid ONESTEP2 only takes 60 battery life, the Olympus VG-140 only takes 165 battery life and the Polaroid IE826RED 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 Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2), 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 80.3%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82.2% and Polaroid only has an average rating of 83.4%.

Better Parentesis.com Review Score

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

17 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), 4g heavier than the Polaroid IE826RED (105g) and 366g lighter than the Polaroid ONESTEP2 (475g). 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 is a 14MP digital camera (2MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826RED 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, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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 do the the Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2), but the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Not Dustproof

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is not dustproof, whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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.

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 Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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.

0.3" 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). 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 does the the Olympus VG-140), whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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 Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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 Polaroid ONESTEP2), but the Olympus VG-140 and the Polaroid IE826RED 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, whereas the Kodak Printomatic, the Olympus VG-140, the Polaroid IE826RED and the Polaroid ONESTEP2 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 82, however the Polaroid IE826RED scored 85.

Less Retailers

Only 2 shops sells the Canon PowerShot A2300, whereas 5 retailers sell the Kodak Printomatic, 4 shops sell the Polaroid IE826RED and 5 retailers sell the Polaroid ONESTEP2. More ...

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

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is older than the Kodak Printomatic by five years, older than the Polaroid IE826RED by one year and older than the Polaroid ONESTEP2 by five years. The Canon PowerShot A2300 is the same age as the Olympus VG-140.

Marginally Lower User Review Score

The Canon PowerShot A2300's average user rating is 85%, however the Polaroid IE826RED's is 86% (based on 262 reviews).

A Lot Lower Overall Review Score

The Canon PowerShot A2300's average overall rating is only 76%, however the Polaroid IE826RED's is 86% (based on 263 reviews).

Took Good Quality Photos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot A2300 took good quality photos.

The Canon PowerShot A2300 is 94.4mm wide, 54.2mm tall, 20.1mm deep and weighs 109g.

Heavier
