14 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K50

A Lot Higher Megapixels

The Pentax K50 has a megapixels of 16.3, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus E-PL3 are both only 12.3MP digital cameras (4MP lower), the Nikon D3000 is only a 10.2MP digital camera (6.1MP lower) and the Samsung MV800 is only a 16.15MP digital camera (0.15MP 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.

Dustproof

The Pentax K50 is dustproof, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Samsung MV800 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 does the Olympus E-PL3, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung MV800 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Pentax K50 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Olympus E-PL3, which is twice as high video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 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 Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Olympus E-PL3. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Pentax K50 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.

HDMI

The Pentax K50 has an HDMI, and so do the Olympus E-PL3 and the Samsung MV800, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000 do 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.

650 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Pentax K50 is 980, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only takes 370 battery life, the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life and the Olympus E-PL3 only takes 330 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung MV800. 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Pentax K50 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82, the Olympus E-PL3 scored only 74 and the Samsung MV800 scored 75.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Five More Awards

The Pentax K50 has received 12 awards, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Olympus E-PL3 has received 11 awards and the Samsung MV800 has received 9 awards.

Expert Reviews Are Better

Based on 71 expert reviews, the average review score of the Pentax K50 is 86%, however the average rating of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 78% (based on 45 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon D3000 is 80% (based on 93 reviews), the average rating of the Olympus E-PL3 is 79% (based on 91 reviews) and the average rating of the Samsung MV800 is 69% (based on 83 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Moderately Better

Based on 71 reviews, the average review score of the Pentax K50 is 89%, however the average rating of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 84% (based on 226 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon D3000 is 86% (based on 106 reviews), the average rating of the Olympus E-PL3 is 82% (based on 91 reviews) and the average rating of the Samsung MV800 is 78% (based on 119 reviews).

Has Better Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Pentax K50 has better technical features. Several people thought that it had brilliant features and had a powerful motor.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K50

Heavier

The Pentax K50 is a 660 digital camera. That's 352g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (308g), 175g heavier than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 395g heavier than the Olympus E-PL3 (265g) and 539g heavier than the Samsung MV800 (121g). 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 Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152, which is 6 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (4000 x 3000) and 3 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon D3000 (2896 x 1944). 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.

$55 More Expensive

The Pentax K50 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS by $12 and more expensive than the Nikon D3000 by $55.

Over Four Years Older

The Pentax K50 is older than the Olympus E-PL3 by 15 months and older than the Samsung MV800 by five years.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 82%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.1%, Olympus has an average rating of 82.2% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.4%.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3000

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3000 supports Wi-Fi, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Olympus E-PL3, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3000 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82, the Olympus E-PL3 scored only 74 and the Samsung MV800 scored 75.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3000

Heavier

The Nikon D3000 is a 485 digital camera. That's 177g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (308g), 220g heavier than the Olympus E-PL3 (265g), 175g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g) and 364g heavier than the Samsung MV800 (121g). 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 Nikon D3000 has a megapixels of 10.2, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus E-PL3 are both 12.3MP digital cameras (2.1MP higher) and the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 are both 16.15MP digital cameras (5.95MP higher). More ...

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

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

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, which is half as high still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (4000 x 3000). 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.

13x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3000 has a digital zoom of 1, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (3x bigger), the Olympus E-PL3 is a 14x digital zoom digital camera (13x bigger) and the Samsung MV800 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (4x 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D3000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3 (as does the Samsung MV800), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower), the Olympus E-PL3 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 higher) and the Pentax K50 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3000 has a display resolution of 230 (as does the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS), but the Olympus E-PL3 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 Samsung MV800 is a 288,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (58,000 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 Nikon D3000 does not have an HDMI, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Olympus E-PL3, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 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 (As does the the Samsung MV800), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 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.

A Lot Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Nikon D3000 has a maximum playback zoom of 1, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 2x maximum playback zoom digital camera (1x 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.

480 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Nikon D3000 is 500, but the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung MV800. 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.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the Nikon D3000, whereas 3 sellers sell the Pentax K50. More ...

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

The Nikon D3000 is older than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS by three months, older than the Olympus E-PL3 by two years, older than the Pentax K50 by nine months and older than the Samsung MV800 by six years.

Lower Expert Review Score

The Nikon D3000's average expert rating is 80%, however the Pentax K50's is 86% (based on 71 reviews).

A Bit Lower Overall Review Score

The Nikon D3000's average overall rating is 86%, however the Pentax K50's is 89% (based on 71 reviews).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.1%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung MV800

Lighter

The Samsung MV800 is a 121 digital camera. That's 187g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (308g), 364g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 144g lighter than the Olympus E-PL3 (265g) and 539g 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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels. 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.

Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung MV800 is a 4 flash recharging time digital camera. That's 8s faster than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (12s). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

Touchscreen

The Samsung MV800 has a touchscreen, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 do not have this feature. 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 Samsung MV800 has an HDMI, and so do the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000 do 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 Samsung MV800 is 3D, and so is the Olympus E-PL3, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, 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.

Four Years Newer

The Samsung MV800 was released five years later than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, released six years later than the Nikon D3000, released four years later than the Olympus E-PL3 and released five years later than the Pentax K50

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Digicam Buyer.co.uk and T3.com both gave the Samsung MV800 a better review score. More ...

Digicam Buyer.co.uk: Samsung MV800 = 100% vs Canon PowerShot SX130 IS = 80%

T3.com: Samsung MV800 = 100% vs Pentax K50 = 80%

More Thoughtfully Designed

Our analysis of the Samsung MV800 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung MV800 was more thoughtfully designed. Several people thought that it was good-looking and well designed.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung MV800 has a better screen or viewfinder. Over 10 people thought that it had a good screen and five people thought that it also had a good touch-screen.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung MV800

Slightly Lower Megapixels

The Samsung MV800 has a megapixels of 16.15, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Olympus E-PL3 are both 12.3MP digital cameras (3.85MP lower), the Nikon D3000 is a 10.2MP digital camera (5.95MP lower) and the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (0.15MP higher). More ...

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

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

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Samsung MV800 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768, and so does the Olympus E-PL3, which is 15 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (4000 x 3000), 7 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon D3000 (2896 x 1944) and 3 times lower still image resolution as the Pentax K50 (1728 x 1152).

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 Samsung MV800 has a digital zoom of 5, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller), the Nikon D3000 is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (4x smaller) and the Olympus E-PL3 is a 14x digital zoom digital camera (9x 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3 (as does the Nikon D3000), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower), the Olympus E-PL3 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 higher) and the Pentax K50 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (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.

Lower Video Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, which is half as high video resolution as the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Samsung MV800 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS. But the best video resolution supported by the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Samsung MV800 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.

Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Samsung MV800 is a 32 maximum memory card size digital camera. That's 32GB smaller than the Olympus E-PL3 (64GB). 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a display resolution of 288, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000 are both 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (58,000 pixels lower), the Olympus E-PL3 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (172,000 pixels higher) and the Pentax K50 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (633,000 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 a GPS

The Samsung MV800 does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D3000), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 do. More ...

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Samsung MV800 does not support Wi-Fi, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Samsung MV800 does not feature bluetooth, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus E-PL3 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 Samsung MV800 has received a Kagoo Score of 75, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82, the Nikon D3000 scored 84 and the Pentax K50 scored 84.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, whereas the Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, the Olympus E-PL3 and the Samsung MV800 support a still image resolution of 1024 x 768 and the Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152. 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 Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 2 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 1x 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, whereas Nikon only has an average rating of 91.1%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82.2%, Pentax only has an average rating of 82% and Samsung only has an average rating of 83.4%.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

187g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a weight of 308, but the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (177g heavier), the Olympus E-PL3 is a 265g digital camera (43g lighter), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (352g heavier) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (187g 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 PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12.1 digital camera. That's 1.9MP higher than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP), 0.2MP lower than the Olympus E-PL3 (12.3MP) and 4.05MP lower than the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 (16.15MP). 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 Big Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, however the Olympus E-PL3 has a 4/3" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Only 4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, but the Samsung MV800 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. 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.

72% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera. That's 3x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x), 10x smaller than the Olympus E-PL3 (14x) and 1x smaller than the Samsung MV800 (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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1. That's 1,600 lower than the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung MV800 (3,200), 11,200 lower than the Olympus E-PL3 (12,800) and 49,600 lower than the Pentax K50 (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.

8s Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a flash recharging time of 12, but the Samsung MV800 is a 4s flash recharging time digital camera (8s faster). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Samsung MV800), whereas the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Samsung MV800. But the best video resolution supported by the Olympus E-PL3 and the Pentax K50 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Nikon D3000. That's 230,000 pixels lower than the Olympus E-PL3 (460,000 Pixels), 691,000 pixels lower than the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels) and 58,000 pixels lower than the Samsung MV800 (288,000 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.

Only 370 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 370, but the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life and the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung MV800. 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.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus E-PL3

4/3" (4/3)" Image Sensor Size

The Olympus E-PL3 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Bigger Digital Zoom

The Olympus E-PL3 is a 14 digital zoom digital camera. That's 10x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (4x), 13x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x) and 9x bigger than the Samsung MV800 (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.

Full HD Video

The Olympus E-PL3 supports Full HD video (as does the Pentax K50), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung MV800 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Olympus E-PL3 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Pentax K50), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800 have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D3000 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus E-PL3 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Pentax K50. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung MV800 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Olympus E-PL3 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.

A Lot Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Olympus E-PL3 has a maximum memory card size of 64, but the Samsung MV800 is only a 32GB maximum memory card size digital camera (32GB smaller). 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.

HDMI

The Olympus E-PL3 has an HDMI (as do the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000 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.

3D

The Olympus E-PL3 is a 3D digital camera (as is the Samsung MV800), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Olympus E-PL3 features multi burst mode, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 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.

Bluetooth

The Olympus E-PL3 features bluetooth, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 do not 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.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus E-PL3

A Lot Heavier

The Olympus E-PL3 has a weight of 265, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (43g heavier), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (220g heavier), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (395g heavier) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (144g 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.

25% Lower Megapixels

The Olympus E-PL3 is a 12.3 digital camera. That's 0.2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (12.1MP), 2.1MP higher than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP) and 3.85MP lower than the Pentax K50 and the Samsung MV800 (16.15MP). 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.

15 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Olympus E-PL3 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768 (as does the Samsung MV800), however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944 and the Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152. 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

Olympus E-PL3 is only 12 maximum ISO speed. That's 11,200 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (1,600), 9,600 higher than the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung MV800 (3,200) and 38,400 lower than the Pentax K50 (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.

461,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Olympus E-PL3 is a 460 display resolution digital camera. That's 230,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000 (230,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels lower than the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels) and 172,000 pixels higher than the Samsung MV800 (288,000 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.

Only 330 Battery Life

The Olympus E-PL3 is a digital camera that takes 330 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only takes 370 battery life, the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life and the Pentax K50 only takes 980 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung MV800. 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 Olympus E-PL3 has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 82, the Nikon D3000 scored 84, the Pentax K50 scored 84 and the Samsung MV800 scored 75.
