4 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K50

Dustproof

The Pentax K50 is dustproof, whereas the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77 are not. 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.

Full HD Video

The Pentax K50 supports Full HD video, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77, whereas the Canon EOS 60D and the Nikon D3000 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.

A Lot Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Pentax K50 has a viewfinder screen size of 3" (as does the Canon EOS 60D), whereas the Sony Alpha A77 is only a 0.5" viewfinder screen size digital camera (2.5" 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.

HDMI

The Pentax K50 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77, whereas the Nikon D3000 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

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

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K50

Heavier

The Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera. That's 95g lighter than the Canon EOS 60D (755g), 175g heavier than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 273.9g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (386.1g) and 13g heavier than the Sony Alpha A77 (647g). 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 Lower Megapixels

The Pentax K50 has a megapixels of 16.3MP, however the Canon EOS 60D is an 18MP digital camera (1.7MP higher), the Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera (6.1MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 12.1MP digital camera (4.2MP lower) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 24.3MP 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.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 3936 x 2624, which is half as high still image resolution as the Canon EOS 60D (5184 x 3456) and half as high still image resolution as the Sony Alpha A77 (6000 x 4000). 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.

307,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Pentax K50 has a display resolution of 921 pixels, whereas the Canon EOS 60D is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D3000 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (307,800 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax K50 has only received a Kagoo Score of 72, but the Canon EOS 60D scored 84, the Nikon D3000 scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 scored 77 and the Sony Alpha A77 scored 74.

$449 More Expensive

The Pentax K50 is more expensive than the Canon EOS 60D by $449, more expensive than the Nikon D3000 by $164 and more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 by $136.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the Pentax K50, however 5 shops sell the Canon EOS 60D. 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 Two Years Older

The Pentax K50 is older than the Canon EOS 60D by five months, older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 by 22 months and older than the Sony Alpha A77 by three years.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 78.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.2%, Panasonic has an average rating of 86.3% and Sony has an average rating of 87.7%.

The Pentax K50 is 132.08mm wide, 96.52mm tall, 73.66mm deep and weighs 660g.

The cheapest price that we could find for the K50 in the US is $663.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3000

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3000 supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Sony Alpha A77, but the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50 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.

12 More Awards

The Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards, however the Canon EOS 60D has received no awards, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 has received no awards, the Pentax K50 has received no awards and the Sony Alpha A77 has received no awards.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3000

98.9g Heavier

The Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera. That's 270g lighter than the Canon EOS 60D (755g), 98.9g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (386.1g), 175g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g) and 162g lighter than the Sony Alpha A77 (647g). 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.

Vastly Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D3000 has a megapixels of 10.2MP, however the Canon EOS 60D is an 18MP digital camera (7.8MP higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 12.1MP digital camera (1.9MP higher), the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (6.1MP higher) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 24.3MP digital camera (14.1MP 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.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, which is half as high still image resolution as the Canon EOS 60D (5184 x 3456) and half as high still image resolution as the Sony Alpha A77 (6000 x 4000). 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.

9x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3000 has a digital zoom of 1x, but the Canon EOS 60D is a 10x digital zoom digital camera (9x bigger) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77 are both 4x digital zoom digital cameras (3x 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon D3000 is only 3 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon EOS 60D is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher) and the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 are both 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (48,000 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.

998,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3000 has a display resolution of 230 pixels, whereas the Canon EOS 60D is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (810,000 pixels higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels higher), the Pentax K50 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (998,800 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 Nikon D3000 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 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 Nikon D3000 does not have a GPS, but the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 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.

Hugely Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Nikon D3000 has a maximum playback zoom of 1x, but the Canon EOS 60D is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (9x higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 16x maximum playback zoom digital camera (15x higher). 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.

Smaller Eye Relief

Nikon D3000 is only 18mm Eye relief. That's 4mm smaller than the Canon EOS 60D (22mm). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

480 Less Battery Life

The Nikon D3000 is a digital camera that takes 500 battery life, whereas the Pentax K50 only takes 980 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 Nikon D3000 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, but the Canon EOS 60D scored 84.

$285 More Expensive

The Nikon D3000 is more expensive than the Canon EOS 60D by $285.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the Nikon D3000, however 5 retailers sell the Canon EOS 60D. 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 Three Years Older

The Nikon D3000 is older than the Canon EOS 60D by 14 months, older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 by three years, older than the Pentax K50 by nine months and older than the Sony Alpha A77 by three years.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the D3000 in the US is $499.95 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 60D

48% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Canon EOS 60D is a 10x digital zoom digital camera. That's 9x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x) and 6x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77 (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.

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.

Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Canon EOS 60D is a 3" viewfinder screen size digital camera, and so does the Pentax K50. That's 2.5" larger than the Sony Alpha A77 (0.5"). 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.

HDMI

The Canon EOS 60D has an HDMI (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77), whereas the Nikon D3000 does 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon EOS 60D features multi burst mode (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Sony Alpha A77), whereas the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Bigger Eye Relief

Canon EOS 60D is 22mm Eye relief, but the Nikon D3000 is only an 18mm Eye relief digital camera (4mm smaller). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS 60D has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Nikon D3000 scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 scored 77, the Pentax K50 scored only 72 and the Sony Alpha A77 scored only 74.

Cheaper by $285

The Canon EOS 60D costs $215.00, whereas the Nikon D3000 is $499.95, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is $527.99, the Pentax K50 is $663.99 and the Sony Alpha A77 is $1,279.06.

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 Nikon only has an average rating of 90.2%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 86.3%, Pentax only has an average rating of 78.6% and Sony only has an average rating of 87.7%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 60D

368.9g Heavier

The Canon EOS 60D has a weight of 755g, whereas the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (270g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 386.1g digital camera (368.9g lighter), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (95g lighter) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 647g digital camera (108g 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Canon EOS 60D is an 18MP digital camera. That's 7.8MP higher than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP), 5.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (12.1MP), 1.7MP higher than the Pentax K50 (16.3MP) and 6.3MP lower than the Sony Alpha A77 (24.3MP). 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 5184 X 3456 Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 60D supports a still image resolution of 5184 x 3456, however the Sony Alpha A77 supports a still image resolution of 6000 x 4000. 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

Canon EOS 60D is only 12 maximum ISO speed. That's 9,600 higher than the Nikon D3000 (3,200), 6,400 higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (6,400) and 38,400 lower than the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 (51,200). 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.

188,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon EOS 60D is a 1 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 810,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D3000 (230,000 Pixels), 580,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (460,000 Pixels), 119,000 pixels higher than the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels) and 188,800 pixels lower than the Sony Alpha A77 (1,228,800 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.

Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon EOS 60D is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 9x higher than the Nikon D3000 (1x) and 6x lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (16x). 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 Support Wi-Fi

The Canon EOS 60D does not support Wi-Fi, whereas the Nikon D3000, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Canon EOS 60D does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Sony Alpha A77), however the Nikon D3000, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50 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.

Older by Over Two Years

The Canon EOS 60D is 17 months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and two years older than the Sony Alpha A77.

The cheapest price that we could find for the EOS 60D in the US is $215.00 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2

A Lot Lighter

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 has a weight of 386.1g, however the Canon EOS 60D is a 755g digital camera (368.9g heavier), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (98.9g heavier), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (273.9g heavier) and the Sony Alpha A77 is a 647g digital camera (260.9g 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.

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 supports Full HD video (as do the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77), however the Canon EOS 60D and the Nikon D3000 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.

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 has a touchscreen, whereas the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 do not. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

HDMI

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 has an HDMI (as do the Canon EOS 60D, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77), however the Nikon D3000 does 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.

3D

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 3D digital camera (as is the Sony Alpha A77), but the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

49% Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 16x maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 6x higher than the Canon EOS 60D (10x) and 15x higher than the Nikon D3000 (1x). 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 features multi burst mode (as do the Canon EOS 60D and the Sony Alpha A77), however the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2

51% Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 12.1MP digital camera. That's 5.9MP lower than the Canon EOS 60D (18MP), 1.9MP higher than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP), 4.2MP lower than the Pentax K50 (16.3MP) and 12.2MP lower than the Sony Alpha A77 (24.3MP). 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 4000 X 3000 Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, but the Canon EOS 60D supports a still image resolution of 5184 x 3456 and the Sony Alpha A77 supports a still image resolution of 6000 x 4000. 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is not waterproof, however the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Sony Alpha A77. That's 6x smaller than the Canon EOS 60D (10x) and 3x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x). 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.

44,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 6 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 6,400 lower than the Canon EOS 60D (12,800), 3,200 higher than the Nikon D3000 (3,200) and 44,800 lower than the Pentax K50 and the Sony Alpha A77 (51,200). 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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a 460 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 580,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 60D (1,040,000 Pixels), 230,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D3000 (230,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels lower than the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels) and 768,800 pixels lower than the Sony Alpha A77 (1,228,800 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.

Only 320 Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 takes 320 battery life, however the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life, the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life and the Sony Alpha A77 only takes 480 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Canon EOS 60D scored 84.

More Expensive by $313

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is $313 more expensive than the Canon EOS 60D and $28 more expensive than the Nikon D3000.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Alpha A77

14.1MP Higher Megapixels

The Sony Alpha A77 has a megapixels of 24.3MP, whereas the Canon EOS 60D is only an 18MP digital camera (6.3MP lower), the Nikon D3000 is only a 10.2MP digital camera (14.1MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is only a 12.1MP digital camera (12.2MP lower) and the Pentax K50 is only a 16.3MP digital camera (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.

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony Alpha A77 supports a still image resolution of 6000 x 4000, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Nikon D3000 (3872 x 2592), twice as high still image resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (4000 x 3000) and twice as high still image resolution as the Pentax K50 (3936 x 2624). 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.

The Sony Alpha A77 supports Full HD video, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50, but the Canon EOS 60D and the Nikon D3000 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.

HDMI

The Sony Alpha A77 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50, but the Nikon D3000 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

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

3D

The Sony Alpha A77 is 3D, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, whereas the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

GPS

The Sony Alpha A77 has a GPS, whereas the Canon EOS 60D, the Nikon D3000, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50 do not have this feature. 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Sony Alpha A77 features multi burst mode, and so do the Canon EOS 60D and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, but the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50 do not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Wi-Fi

The Sony Alpha A77 supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Nikon D3000, however the Canon EOS 60D, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50 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.

Nine Months Newer

The Sony Alpha A77 was released two years later than the Canon EOS 60D, released three years later than the Nikon D3000, released nine months later than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and released three years later than the Pentax K50

Better for Sports Photography

The Sony Alpha A77 is better for sports photography than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and Pentax K50. 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!

The Sony Alpha A77 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200, takes 480 Shots battery life and has a camera shutter speed of 1s.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Alpha A77

29% Heavier

The Sony Alpha A77 is a 647g digital camera. That's 108g lighter than the Canon EOS 60D (755g), 162g heavier than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 260.9g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (386.1g) and 13g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g). 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.

Vastly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Alpha A77 has a digital zoom of 4x (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2), however the Canon EOS 60D is a 10x digital zoom digital camera (6x bigger) and the Nikon D3000 is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (3x 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.

2.5" Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Sony Alpha A77 has a viewfinder screen size of 0.5", but the Canon EOS 60D and the Pentax K50 are both 3" viewfinder screen size digital cameras (2.5" 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.

500 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Sony Alpha A77 is 480, but the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life and the Pentax K50 only takes 980 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 Feature Bluetooth

The Sony Alpha A77 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Canon EOS 60D), whereas the Nikon D3000, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 and the Pentax K50 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 Sony Alpha A77 has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, however the Canon EOS 60D scored 84, the Nikon D3000 scored 77 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 scored 77.

$1,064 More Expensive

The Sony Alpha A77 is more expensive than the Canon EOS 60D by $1,064, more expensive than the Nikon D3000 by $779, more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 by $751 and more expensive than the Pentax K50 by $615.

Less Retailers

Only 1 retailer sell the Sony Alpha A77, whereas 5 shops sell the Canon EOS 60D. 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.
Worse Brand

Sony digital cameras have an average rating of only 87.7%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95% and Nikon has an average rating of 90.2%.

Worse for Wildlife Photography

The Sony Alpha A77 is worse for wildlife photography than the Nikon D3000. 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 Sony Alpha A77 is 142.6mm wide, 80.9mm tall, 104.2mm deep and weighs 647g.
