Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Kodak Printomatic took good 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

41% Heavier

The Kodak Printomatic is a 317 digital camera. That's 200g heavier than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (117g), 134g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix L22 (183g), 212g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (105g) and 23g lighter than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (340g). 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.

8MP Lower Megapixels

The Kodak Printomatic has a megapixels of 10, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 are both 16.1MP digital cameras (6.1MP higher), the Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 12MP digital camera (2MP higher) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (8MP 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.

180 Less Battery Life

The Kodak Printomatic takes 60 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS only takes 190 battery life, the Nikon Coolpix L22 only takes 240 battery life and the Polaroid IE826 only takes 110 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Vivitar ViviCam S529. 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 Printomatic does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Vivitar ViviCam S529), however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L22 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.

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 80.8%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.5% and Polaroid has an average rating of 84.9%.

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.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

Lighter

The Polaroid IE826 is a 105 digital camera. That's 12g lighter than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (117g), 212g lighter than the Kodak Printomatic (317g), 78g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix L22 (183g) and 235g lighter than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (340g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

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

A Lot Higher Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826 has a megapixels of 18, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 are both only 16.1MP digital cameras (1.9MP lower), the Kodak Printomatic is only a 10MP digital camera (8MP lower) and the Nikon Coolpix L22 is only a 12MP digital camera (6MP lower). 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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS only has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3072 pixels and the Nikon Coolpix L22 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, which is 3 times higher video resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (640 x 480 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

3 Times Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is 640 x 480 pixels (3 times lower video resolution) and the Nikon Coolpix L22 is 320 x 240 pixels (12 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826 has a built-in flash (as do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529), 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.

$7 Cheaper

The Polaroid IE826 costs $22.44 less than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, costs $15.34 less than the Nikon Coolpix L22 and costs $7.44 less than the Vivitar ViviCam S529.

User Reviews Are Moderately Better

Based on 262 user reviews, the average review score of the Polaroid IE826 is 86%, however the average rating of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is 85% (based on 83 reviews) and the average rating of the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is 80% (based on 4 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Better

Based on 263 reviews, the average review score of the Polaroid IE826 is 86%, however the average rating of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is 78% (based on 123 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix L22 is 69% (based on 22 reviews) and the average rating of the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is 80% (based on 4 reviews).

Better in Terms of Size

Our analysis of the Polaroid IE826 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Polaroid IE826 was better in terms of size. Several people thought that it was really compact, was really easy to carry around and was a good size.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826 is not waterproof, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 400, however the Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,200 higher). More ...

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

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

130 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Polaroid IE826 is 110, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS only takes 190 battery life and the Nikon Coolpix L22 only takes 240 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Vivitar ViviCam S529. 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 Polaroid IE826 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Kodak Printomatic scored 89.

Less Retailers

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Polaroid IE826), however the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 have a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

10% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L22. That's 0.3" larger than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (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.

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS supports Wi-Fi, but the Kodak Printomatic, the Nikon Coolpix L22, the Polaroid IE826 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 do not 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.

Built-in Flash

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a built-in flash, and so do the Nikon Coolpix L22, the Polaroid IE826 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529, 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.

Four More Awards

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has received 4 awards from expert review sites, however the Kodak Printomatic has received no awards, the Nikon Coolpix L22 has received 2 awards, the Polaroid IE826 has received no awards and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 has received no awards.

Has a Better Lens That Was Good

Our analysis of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a better lens that was good. More than 10 people thought that it had a bad zoom and several people thought that it also had a bad lens and autofocus.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS

12g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a weight of 117, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (200g heavier), the Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 183g digital camera (66g heavier), the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (12g lighter) and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is a 340g digital camera (223g 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% Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is a 16 digital camera. That's 6MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP), 4MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L22 (12MP), 2MP lower than the Polaroid IE826 (18MP) and 0.1MP lower than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (16.1MP). 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 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS supports a still image resolution of 1200 x 1200, however the Vivitar ViviCam S529 supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536. 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.

Only 4608 X 3072 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3072 pixels pixels, whereas the Polaroid IE826 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS does not support Full HD video (As do the the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529), however the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is 640 x 480 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Vivitar ViviCam S529. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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 190 Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is a digital camera that takes 190 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L22 only takes 240 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Vivitar ViviCam S529. 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 Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Kodak Printomatic scored 89 and the Polaroid IE826 scored 87.

More Expensive by $22

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is $20 more expensive than the Kodak Printomatic, $7 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix L22, $22 more expensive than the Polaroid IE826 and $15 more expensive than the Vivitar ViviCam S529.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is only stocked by 1 seller, however the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 11 sellers and the Polaroid IE826 is stocked by 6 sellers. 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 Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is five years older than the Kodak Printomatic, three months older than the Polaroid IE826 and five months older than the Vivitar ViviCam S529.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has an average user score of 85%, but the Polaroid IE826 has an average user rating of 86% (based on 262 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Considerably Worse

1 Expert Review Site Gave It a Lower Review Score

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Vivitar ViviCam S529

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (1200 x 1200) and 3 times higher still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L22 (1280 x 720). 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.

Smile Detection

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 features smile detection, however the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Kodak Printomatic, the Nikon Coolpix L22 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.

A Lot Bigger Internal Memory

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 has an internal memory of 32, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L22 is only a 19MB internal memory digital camera (13MB smaller). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 has a built-in flash (as do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Nikon Coolpix L22 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.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Vivitar ViviCam S529

Heavier

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 is a 340 digital camera. That's 223g heavier than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (117g), 23g heavier than the Kodak Printomatic (317g), 157g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix L22 (183g) and 235g 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.

1.9MP Lower Megapixels

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 has a megapixels of 16.1, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is a 16MP digital camera (0.1MP lower), the Kodak Printomatic is a 10MP digital camera (6.1MP lower), the Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 12MP digital camera (4.1MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (1.9MP 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

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.

Lower Video Resolution

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so is the Nikon Coolpix L22, which is 3 times lower video resolution as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Polaroid IE826 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

3 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is 640 x 480 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS. But the best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak Printomatic support. More ...

The Vivitar ViviCam S529 also supports a 320 x 240 pixels video resolution.

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

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

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L22

Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 3 screen digital camera, and so does the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS. That's 0.3" larger than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (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.

240 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Nikon Coolpix L22 is 240, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS only takes 190 battery life, the Kodak Printomatic only takes 60 battery life and the Polaroid IE826 only takes 110 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Vivitar ViviCam S529. 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 Nikon Coolpix L22 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, the Polaroid IE826 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529, 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.

Better Good Gear Guide.com.au Review Score

The Nikon Coolpix L22 has a Good Gear Guide.com.au review score of 75%, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS's rating was only 70% from the same site.

More Fairly Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Nikon Coolpix L22 was more fairly priced.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L22

A Lot Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix L22 has a weight of 183, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is a 117g digital camera (66g lighter), the Kodak Printomatic is a 317g digital camera (134g heavier), the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (78g lighter) and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is a 340g digital camera (157g 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.

34% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 12 digital camera. That's 4.1MP lower than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (16.1MP), 2MP higher than the Kodak Printomatic (10MP) and 6MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L22 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 720, whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS supports a still image resolution of 1200 x 1200 and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536. 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.

Only 4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L22 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3072 pixels and the Polaroid IE826 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 ...

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon Coolpix L22 does not support Full HD video (As do the the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529), whereas the Kodak Printomatic 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L22 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as is the Vivitar ViviCam S529), whereas the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Polaroid IE826 have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

12 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon Coolpix L22 is 320 x 240 pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS and the Vivitar ViviCam S529 is only 640 x 480 pixels (4 times higher video resolution) and the Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels (12 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak Printomatic 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.

41% Smaller Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 19 internal memory digital camera. That's 13MB smaller than the Vivitar ViviCam S529 (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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is a 230 display resolution digital camera. That's 231,000 pixels lower than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (461,000 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.

More Expensive by $15

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is $13 more expensive than the Kodak Printomatic, $15 more expensive than the Polaroid IE826 and $8 more expensive than the Vivitar ViviCam S529.

Less Retailers

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is only stocked by 1 shop, whereas the Kodak Printomatic is stocked by 11 retailers and the Polaroid IE826 is stocked by 6 shops. More ...
