Better Kagoo Score

The Polaroid Mint has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS scored 87, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 82, the Nikon D7000 scored 86 and the Samsung PL20 scored 82.

16 Months Newer

The Polaroid Mint is 17 months newer than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, 16 months newer than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, 19 months newer than the Nikon D7000 and six years newer than the Samsung PL20

User Reviews Are Significantly Better

Based on 4 reviews, the average user review score of the Polaroid Mint is 100%, whereas the average rating of the Samsung PL20 is 77% (based on 6 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid Mint

Heavier

The Polaroid Mint is a 162g digital camera. That's 108g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS (270g), 45g heavier than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (117g), 433g lighter than the Nikon D7000 (595g) and 59g heavier than the Samsung PL20 (103g). 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 Polaroid Mint has a megapixels of 16MP, but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 20.3MP digital camera (4.3MP higher), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 16.15MP digital camera (0.15MP higher), the Nikon D7000 is a 6.1MP digital camera (9.9MP lower) and the Samsung PL20 is a 14.2MP digital camera (1.8MP 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.

210 Less Battery Life

The Polaroid Mint takes 40 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS only takes 250 battery life and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 only takes 120 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D7000 or the Samsung PL20. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Polaroid Mint does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Samsung PL20), however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Nikon D7000 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.

Fewer Sellers

Only 4 stores sells the Polaroid Mint, but 9 stores sell the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Worse Brand

Polaroid digital cameras have an average rating of only 81.5%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.7% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Mint in the US is $29.99 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS

Higher Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 20.3MP digital camera. That's 4.3MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Polaroid Mint (16MP), 14.2MP higher than the Nikon D7000 (6.1MP) and 6.1MP higher than the Samsung PL20 (14.2MP). 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.

5184 X 3456 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS supports a still image resolution of 5184 x 3456, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456 and the Samsung PL20 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint 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.

Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS supports Full HD video (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), whereas the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Twice As High Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, however the Samsung PL20 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 1080 x 720 pixels (3 times lower video resolution) and the Samsung PL20 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

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

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

29% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has a display diagonal of 3". That's 0.3" larger than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Samsung PL20 (2.7") and 1.2" larger than the Nikon D7000 (1.8"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

HDMI

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has an HDMI, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 do not 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.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has a GPS, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 do not. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

250 Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a digital camera that takes 250 battery life, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 only takes 120 battery life and the Polaroid Mint only takes 40 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D7000 or the Samsung PL20. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS supports Wi-Fi (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), but the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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.

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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Kodak only has an average rating of 80.1%, Nikon only has an average rating of 90.7%, Polaroid only has an average rating of 81.5% and Samsung only has an average rating of 83.5%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS

167g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has a weight of 270g, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117g digital camera (153g lighter), the Nikon D7000 is a 595g digital camera (325g heavier), the Polaroid Mint is a 162g digital camera (108g lighter) and the Samsung PL20 is a 103g digital camera (167g 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.

34% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x smaller than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (6x) and 1x smaller than the Samsung PL20 (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 Playback Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 2.5x lower than the Samsung PL20 (12.5x). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), however the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Polaroid Mint scored 88.

More Expensive by $15

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is $15 more expensive than the Polaroid Mint and $6 more expensive than the Samsung PL20.

Older by Over One Year

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is one month older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and 17 months older than the Polaroid Mint.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PowerShot SX720 HS in the US is $45.00 and in total we found 9 prices for it.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D7000

46% Heavier

The Nikon D7000 is a 595g digital camera. That's 325g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS (270g), 478g heavier than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (117g), 433g heavier than the Polaroid Mint (162g) and 492g heavier than the Samsung PL20 (103g). 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.

14.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D7000 has a megapixels of 6.1MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 20.3MP digital camera (14.2MP higher), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Polaroid Mint are both 16MP digital cameras (9.9MP higher) and the Samsung PL20 is a 14.2MP digital camera (8.1MP 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D7000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1 (as do the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Samsung PL20), however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 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.

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon D7000 is a 1.8" screen digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 3" screen digital camera (1.2" larger) and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Samsung PL20 are both 2.7" screen digital cameras (0.9" 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.

0.84" Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Nikon D7000 has a viewfinder screen size of 1.8", but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 2.64" viewfinder screen size digital camera (0.84" larger). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D7000 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS scored 87 and the Polaroid Mint scored 88.

$19 More Expensive

The Nikon D7000 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS by $4, more expensive than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 by $4, more expensive than the Polaroid Mint by $19 and more expensive than the Samsung PL20 by $10.

Less Retailers

Only 3 retailers sells the Nikon D7000, whereas 9 sellers sell the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, 4 sellers sell the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and 4 stores sell the Polaroid Mint. 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 One Year Older

The Nikon D7000 is older than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS by two months, older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 by three months and older than the Polaroid Mint by 19 months.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.7%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the D7000 in the US is $49.00 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ43

Bigger Digital Zoom

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a digital zoom of 6x, but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller) and the Samsung PL20 is only a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x 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, but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, whereas the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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.

Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 32GB maximum memory card size digital camera. That's 24GB larger than the Samsung PL20 (8GB). More ...

The maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

0.84" Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a viewfinder screen size of 2.64", whereas the Nikon D7000 is only a 1.8" viewfinder screen size digital camera (0.84" smaller). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Wi-Fi

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, but the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 do not. 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a built-in flash (as does the Samsung PL20), however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint do 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.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ43

14g Heavier

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117g digital camera. That's 153g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS (270g), 478g lighter than the Nikon D7000 (595g), 45g lighter than the Polaroid Mint (162g) and 14g heavier than the Samsung PL20 (103g). 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.

21% Lower Megapixels

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a megapixels of 16.15MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 20.3MP digital camera (4.15MP higher), the Nikon D7000 is a 6.1MP digital camera (10.05MP lower), the Polaroid Mint is a 16MP digital camera (0.15MP lower) and the Samsung PL20 is a 14.2MP digital camera (1.95MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS supports a still image resolution of 5184 x 3456. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is only 1 maximum ISO speed (as do the Nikon D7000 and the Samsung PL20), but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 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.

Only 1080 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is 1080 x 720 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (3 times higher video resolution) and the Samsung PL20 is 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint 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.

Vastly Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has an internal memory of 8MB, however the Samsung PL20 is a 32MB internal memory digital camera (24MB 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

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a display diagonal of 2.7" (as does the Samsung PL20), however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 3" screen digital camera (0.3" larger) and the Nikon D7000 is a 1.8" screen digital camera (0.9" 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.

692,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has a display resolution of 230 pixels (as does the Samsung PL20), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 922,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (692,000 pixels higher). 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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, but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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.

130 Less Battery Life

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a digital camera that takes 120 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS only takes 250 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D7000 or the Samsung PL20. It is possible that they do not take any battery life.

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS), however the Nikon D7000, the Polaroid Mint and the Samsung PL20 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 Kodak Pixpro FZ43 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS scored 87, the Nikon D7000 scored 86 and the Polaroid Mint scored 88.

$15 More Expensive

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is more expensive than the Polaroid Mint by $15 and more expensive than the Samsung PL20 by $6.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 4 retailers sells the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, however 9 sellers sell the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS. More ...

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

The Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is older than the Polaroid Mint by 16 months.

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 80.1%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.7%, Polaroid has an average rating of 81.5% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Pixpro FZ43 in the US is $45.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung PL20

Lighter

The Samsung PL20 is a 103g digital camera. That's 167g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS (270g), 14g lighter than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (117g), 492g lighter than the Nikon D7000 (595g) and 59g lighter than the Polaroid Mint (162g). 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 Bigger Internal Memory

The Samsung PL20 has an internal memory of 32MB, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is only an 8MB internal memory digital camera (24MB 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.

17% Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Samsung PL20 has a maximum playback zoom of 12.5x, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is only a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (2.5x lower). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

Built-in Flash

The Samsung PL20 has a built-in flash (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ43), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, the Nikon D7000 and the Polaroid Mint do 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.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung PL20

A Lot Lower Megapixels

The Samsung PL20 has a megapixels of 14.2MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 20.3MP digital camera (6.1MP higher), the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and the Polaroid Mint are both 16MP digital cameras (1.8MP higher) and the Nikon D7000 is a 6.1MP digital camera (8.1MP 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.

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 Samsung PL20 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS supports a still image resolution of 5184 x 3456 and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456.

17% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Samsung PL20 has a digital zoom of 5x, however the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller) and the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 6x 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.

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.

Worse for Portrait Photography

The Samsung PL20 is worse for portrait photography than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS. More ...

When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.
Worse for Landscape Photography

The Samsung PL20 is worse for landscape photography than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS and Polaroid Mint. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.
Worse for Everyday Photography

The Samsung PL20 is worse for everyday photography than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS. More ...

When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.
Worse for Sports Photography

The Samsung PL20 is worse for sports photography than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS and Kodak Pixpro FZ43. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!
Worse for Wildlife Photography

The Samsung PL20 is worse for wildlife photography than the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS, Kodak Pixpro FZ43 and Nikon D7000. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

The Samsung PL20 is 96.8mm wide, 58mm tall, 20.3mm deep and weighs 0.103kg.
