5 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D300S

Larger Display Diagonal

Nikon D300S is 3" screen (as does the Ricoh CX6), but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10 and the Samsung ST90 are all only 2.7" screen digital cameras (0.3" 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.

HDMI

The Nikon D300S has an HDMI, and so do the Fujifilm X10 and the Ricoh CX6, however the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Samsung ST90 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.

800 More Battery Life

The Nikon D300S takes 950 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot A490 only takes 150 battery life, the Fujifilm X10 only takes 270 battery life and the Ricoh CX6 only takes 260 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung ST90. 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D300S supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

Four Years Newer

The Nikon D300S is five years newer than the Canon PowerShot A490, four years newer than the Fujifilm X10, four years newer than the Ricoh CX6 and five years newer than the Samsung ST90

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D300S

47% Heavier

The Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera. That's 665g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 510g heavier than the Fujifilm X10 (330g), 660g heavier than the Ricoh CX6 (180g) and 735g heavier than the Samsung ST90 (105g). More ...

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

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

Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D300S has a megapixels of 12.3MP, but the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 10MP digital cameras (2.3MP lower), the Fujifilm X10 is a 12MP digital camera (0.3MP lower) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.1MP 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.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.6)" image sensor size, whereas the Fujifilm X10 has a 2/3" image sensor size. 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216, but the Fujifilm X10 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240. 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.

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D300S has a digital zoom of 1x, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (3.8x bigger), the Fujifilm X10 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger) and the Samsung ST90 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.

6,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D300S is a 6 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm X10 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 higher) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 lower). 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon D300S does not support Full HD video (As does the the Samsung ST90), but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10 and the Ricoh CX6 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon D300S has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90, which is half as high video resolution as the Fujifilm X10 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Samsung ST90. However the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm X10 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot A490 support. More ...

The Nikon D300S also supports 640 x 480 pixels, 640 x 424 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 Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D300S has a display resolution of 921 pixels, however the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 115,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (806,000 pixels lower), the Fujifilm X10 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels lower), the Ricoh CX6 is a 1,230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (309,000 pixels higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower). 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 Nikon D300S does not have a GPS, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

Heavier

Nikon D300S is 0.84kg heavy. That's 0.64kg heavier than the Ricoh CX6 (0.2kg).

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D300S has received a Kagoo Score of 74, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 83, the Fujifilm X10 scored 78 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

$805 More Expensive

The Nikon D300S is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot A490 by $805, more expensive than the Fujifilm X10 by $680, more expensive than the Ricoh CX6 by $445 and more expensive than the Samsung ST90 by $769.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 retailer sell the Nikon D300S, but 2 shops sell the Fujifilm X10. More ...

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

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.4%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The Nikon D300S is 147mm wide, 74mm tall, 114mm deep and weighs 0.84kg.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Fujifilm X10

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Fujifilm X10 has a 2/3" (2/3)" image sensor size, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size and the Nikon D300S only has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. 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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Fujifilm X10 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 have a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 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.

Full HD Video

The Fujifilm X10 supports Full HD video, however the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D300S, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Fujifilm X10 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, which is 7 times higher video resolution as the Canon PowerShot A490 (640 x 480 pixels) and twice as high video resolution as the Nikon D300S, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 (1280 x 720 pixels). 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 Fujifilm X10 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution) and the Ricoh CX6 is 640 x 480 pixels (7 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot A490 support. More ...

The Fujifilm X10 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fujifilm X10

41% Heavier

The Fujifilm X10 is a 330g digital camera. That's 155g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 510g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g), 150g heavier than the Ricoh CX6 (180g) and 225g heavier than the Samsung ST90 (105g). More ...

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

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

Lower Megapixels

The Fujifilm X10 has a megapixels of 12MP, but the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 10MP digital cameras (2MP lower), the Nikon D300S is a 12.3MP digital camera (0.3MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.4MP 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.

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.

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm X10 has a digital zoom of 2x, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (2.8x bigger), the Nikon D300S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller) and the Samsung ST90 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (3x bigger). More ...

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.

14MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Fujifilm X10 has an internal memory of 26MB, but the Ricoh CX6 is a 40MB internal memory digital camera (14MB bigger) and the Samsung ST90 is a 30MB internal memory digital camera (4MB 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.

Marginally Smaller Display Diagonal

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ST90

Lighter

The Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera. That's 70g lighter than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 225g lighter than the Fujifilm X10 (330g), 735g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g) and 75g lighter than the Ricoh CX6 (180g). 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 Megapixels

The Samsung ST90 has a megapixels of 14.4MP, but the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both only 10MP digital cameras (4.4MP lower) and the Fujifilm X10 and the Nikon D300S are both only 12.3MP digital cameras (2.1MP 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. 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 Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240, but the Canon PowerShot A490 supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2736, the Fujifilm X10 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, the Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216 and the Ricoh CX6 supports a still image resolution of 3640 x 2736. 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.

4x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung ST90 has a digital zoom of 5x, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6 are both only 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (0.2x smaller), the Fujifilm X10 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (3x smaller) and the Nikon D300S is only a 1x digital zoom digital camera (4x 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ST90

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Samsung ST90 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Ricoh CX6, whereas the Fujifilm X10 has a 2/3" image sensor size and the Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size. 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Samsung ST90 does not support Full HD video (As does the the Nikon D300S), but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10 and the Ricoh CX6 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Samsung ST90 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Nikon D300S and the Ricoh CX6, which is half as high video resolution as the Fujifilm X10 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon D300S. However the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm X10 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot A490 support. More ...

The Samsung ST90 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 Internal Memory

The Samsung ST90 has an internal memory of 30MB, but the Fujifilm X10 is a 26MB internal memory digital camera (4MB smaller) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 40MB internal memory digital camera (10MB 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

Samsung ST90 is only 2.7" screen, but the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Fujifilm X10 are both 2.8" screen digital cameras (0.1" larger) and the Nikon D300S and the Ricoh CX6 are both 3" screen digital cameras (0.3" larger). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung ST90 has a display resolution of 230 pixels, however the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 115,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (115,000 pixels lower), the Fujifilm X10 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D300S is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels higher) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 1,230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000,000 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung ST90 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 83.

$36 More Expensive

The Samsung ST90 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot A490 by $36.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 seller sell the Samsung ST90, but 2 shops sell the Fujifilm X10. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over Four Years Older

The Samsung ST90 is older than the Fujifilm X10 by seven months, older than the Nikon D300S by five years and older than the Ricoh CX6 by four months.

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

0.64kg Lighter

The Ricoh CX6 has a weight of 0.2kg, however the Nikon D300S is a 0.84kg heavy digital camera (0.64kg heavier).

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

A Lot Heavier

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Only 3648 X 2736 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels pixels (as is the Canon PowerShot A490), whereas the Fujifilm X10 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels. More ...

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Ricoh CX6 is a 4.8x digital zoom digital camera. That's 0.8x bigger than the Canon PowerShot A490 (4x), 2.8x bigger than the Fujifilm X10 (2x), 3.8x bigger than the Nikon D300S (1x) and 0.2x smaller than the Samsung ST90 (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 ISO Sensitivity

Ricoh CX6 is only 3 maximum ISO speed. That's 9,600 lower than the Fujifilm X10 (12,800) and 3,200 lower than the Nikon D300S (6,400). 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90), however the Fujifilm X10 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. 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.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Ricoh CX6 is 640 x 480 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm X10 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (7 times higher video resolution) and the Nikon D300S and the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot A490 support. More ...

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

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

Only 260 Battery Life

The Ricoh CX6 is a digital camera that takes 260 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm X10 only takes 270 battery life and the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Samsung ST90. 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 Ricoh CX6 has only received a Kagoo Score of 71, but the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 83, the Fujifilm X10 scored 78, the Nikon D300S scored 74 and the Samsung ST90 scored 79.

More Expensive by $360

The Ricoh CX6 is $360 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot A490, $235 more expensive than the Fujifilm X10 and $324 more expensive than the Samsung ST90.

Not As Many Stockists

The Ricoh CX6 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Fujifilm X10 is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
Older by Over Four Years

The Ricoh CX6 is three months older than the Fujifilm X10 and four years older than the Nikon D300S.

Worse Brand

Ricoh digital cameras have an average rating of only 76.4%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Fujifilm has an average rating of 86.6%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.4% and Samsung has an average rating of 84.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the CX6 in the US is $490.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
