8 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K-5

6.3MP Higher Megapixels

The Pentax K-5 has a megapixels of 16.3MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 is only a 10MP digital camera (6.3MP lower), the Fujifilm X10 and the Nikon D300S are both only 12.3MP digital cameras (4MP 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 K-5 is dustproof, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S 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 K-5 supports Full HD video, and so does the Fujifilm X10, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D300S 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 K-5 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Fujifilm X10, 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 and the Samsung MV800 (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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax K-5 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Fujifilm X10. But the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot A490 support. More ...

The Pentax K-5 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.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Pentax K-5 is a 3" screen digital camera (as do the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Fujifilm X10 are both only 2.8" screen digital cameras (0.2" 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 Pentax K-5 has an HDMI, and so do the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800, but the Canon PowerShot A490 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.

830 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Pentax K-5 is 980, but the Canon PowerShot A490 only takes 150 battery life, 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 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.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K-5

45% Heavier

The Pentax K-5 is a 660g digital camera. That's 485g heavier than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 330g heavier than the Fujifilm X10 (330g), 180g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g) 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 K-5 supports a still image resolution of 3936 x 2624, which is half as high still image resolution as the Samsung MV800 (4608 x 3456). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax K-5 has only received a Kagoo Score of 71, however the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 81, the Fujifilm X10 scored 72, the Nikon D300S scored 78 and the Samsung MV800 scored 72.

Not Currently Available

This digital camera does not seem to be currently available. More ...

You can sign up to a price alert to be notified when this product becomes available.
Over Five Years Older

The Pentax K-5 is older than the Fujifilm X10 by 11 months, older than the Nikon D300S by five years and older than the Samsung MV800 by five years.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 79%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Fujifilm has an average rating of 86.3%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.4% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.6%.

The Pentax K-5 is 132.08mm wide, 96.52mm tall, 73.66mm deep and weighs 660g.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D300S

15% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D300S has a display diagonal of 3", and so do the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800. That's 0.2" larger than the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Fujifilm X10 (2.8"). More ...

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

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

The Nikon D300S has an HDMI (as do the Fujifilm X10, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D300S supports Wi-Fi, but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Newer by Two Months

The Nikon D300S was released five years ago, but the Canon PowerShot A490 was released 10 years ago, the Fujifilm X10 was released nine years ago, the Pentax K-5 was released 10 years ago and the Samsung MV800 was released five years ago

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D300S

A Lot Heavier

The Nikon D300S has a weight of 840g, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 175g digital camera (665g lighter), the Fujifilm X10 is a 330g digital camera (510g lighter), the Pentax K-5 is a 660g digital camera (180g lighter) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (719g 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 Nikon D300S is a 12.3MP digital camera. That's 2.3MP higher than the Canon PowerShot A490 (10MP), 0.3MP higher than the Fujifilm X10 (12MP) and 3.85MP lower than the Pentax K-5 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.

Only 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.6)" Image Sensor Size

The Nikon D300S has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.6)" image sensor size, but the Fujifilm X10 has a 2/3" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Pentax K-5 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.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D300S supports a still image resolution of 3216 x 3216, however the Fujifilm X10 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000 and the Samsung MV800 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456. 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D300S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera. That's 3x smaller than the Canon PowerShot A490 (4x), 1x smaller than the Fujifilm X10 (2x) and 4x 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon D300S is only 6 maximum ISO speed. That's 6,400 lower than the Fujifilm X10 (12,800), 44,800 lower than the Pentax K-5 (51,200) and 3,200 higher than the Samsung MV800 (3,200). 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon D300S does not support Full HD video, however the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800 do. More ...

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

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

Half As High Video Resolution

The Nikon D300S has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Samsung MV800), however the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 have 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 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Samsung MV800. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D300S does not have a GPS (As does the the Samsung MV800), but the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 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.

Only 950 Battery Life

The Nikon D300S is a digital camera that takes 950 battery life, whereas the Pentax K-5 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.

0.72kg Heavier

The Nikon D300S has a weight of 0.84kg, however the Samsung MV800 is a 0.12kg heavy digital camera (0.72kg lighter).

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D300S has received a Kagoo Score of 78, but the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 81.

The Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera. That's 54g lighter than the Canon PowerShot A490 (175g), 209g lighter than the Fujifilm X10 (330g), 719g lighter than the Nikon D300S (840g) and 539g lighter than the Pentax K-5 (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 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung MV800 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot A490 (3648 x 2736), twice as high still image resolution as the Nikon D300S (3216 x 3216) and twice as high still image resolution as the Pentax K-5 (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.

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.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung MV800 has a digital zoom of 5x, however the Canon PowerShot A490 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x 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.

0.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Samsung MV800 is a 3" screen digital camera (as do the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 and the Fujifilm X10 are both only 2.8" screen digital cameras (0.2" 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.

Touchscreen

The Samsung MV800 has a touchscreen, however the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 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 Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5, but the Canon PowerShot A490 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 Samsung MV800 is 3D, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 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.

Lighter

The Samsung MV800 is a 0.12kg heavy digital camera. That's 0.72kg lighter than the Nikon D300S (0.84kg).

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung MV800

0.15MP Lower Megapixels

The Samsung MV800 has a megapixels of 16.15MP, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 10MP digital camera (6.15MP lower), the Fujifilm X10 and the Nikon D300S are both 12.3MP digital cameras (3.85MP lower) and the Pentax K-5 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Samsung MV800 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3, however the Fujifilm X10 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 higher), the Nikon D300S is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher) and the Pentax K-5 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 Nikon D300S, which is half as high video resolution as the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 (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.

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 Nikon D300S. But the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 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 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.

16MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Samsung MV800 has an internal memory of 10MB, whereas the Fujifilm X10 is a 26MB internal memory digital camera (16MB 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung MV800 has a display resolution of 288 pixels, but the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 115,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (173,000 pixels lower), the Fujifilm X10 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (172,000 pixels higher) and the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 are both 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (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 D300S), however the Canon PowerShot A490, the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 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 A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 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 A490, the Fujifilm X10, the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 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 72, however the Canon PowerShot A490 scored 81 and the Nikon D300S scored 78.

Not Currently Available

This digital camera does not seem to be currently available. More ...

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Fujifilm X10

2/3" (2/3)" Image Sensor Size

The Fujifilm X10 has a 2/3" (2/3)" image sensor size, but the Canon PowerShot A490 only has 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. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Pentax K-5 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.

Full HD Video

The Fujifilm X10 supports Full HD video (as does the Pentax K-5), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490, the Nikon D300S 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 Fujifilm X10 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Pentax K-5), however the Canon PowerShot A490 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800 have a maximum video resolution of 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 which is also supported by the Pentax K-5. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high 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.

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.

39% Bigger Internal Memory

The Fujifilm X10 is a 26MB internal memory digital camera. That's 16MB bigger than the Samsung MV800 (10MB). 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.

HDMI

The Fujifilm X10 has an HDMI (as do the Nikon D300S, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800), whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 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.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fujifilm X10

A Lot Heavier

The Fujifilm X10 has a weight of 330g, whereas the Canon PowerShot A490 is a 175g digital camera (155g lighter), the Nikon D300S is an 840g digital camera (510g heavier), the Pentax K-5 is a 660g digital camera (330g heavier) and the Samsung MV800 is a 121g digital camera (209g 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.

27% Lower Megapixels

The Fujifilm X10 is a 12MP digital camera. That's 2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot A490 (10MP), 0.3MP lower than the Nikon D300S (12.3MP) and 4.15MP lower than the Pentax K-5 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.

Only 4000 X 3000 Still Image Resolution

The Fujifilm X10 supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, however the Samsung MV800 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456. 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 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm X10 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x smaller than the Canon PowerShot A490 (4x), 1x bigger than the Nikon D300S (1x) and 3x 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Fujifilm X10 is only 12 maximum ISO speed. That's 6,400 higher than the Nikon D300S (6,400), 38,400 lower than the Pentax K-5 (51,200) and 9,600 higher than the Samsung MV800 (3,200). 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Fujifilm X10 has a display diagonal of 2.8". That's 0.3" larger than the Canon PowerShot A490 (2.5") and 0.2" smaller than the Nikon D300S, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800 (3"). 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.

461,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Fujifilm X10 is a 460 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 345,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot A490 (115,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 (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 270 Battery Life

The Fujifilm X10 is a digital camera that takes 270 battery life, whereas the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life and the Pentax K-5 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.

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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot A490 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm X10 (2x), 3x bigger than the Nikon D300S (1x) 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.

7 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot A490 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, however the Fujifilm X10 and the Pentax K-5 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Nikon D300S and the Samsung MV800 have a maximum video resolution of 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.

17% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot A490 has a display diagonal of 2.5". That's 0.3" smaller than the Fujifilm X10 (2.8") and 0.5" smaller than the Nikon D300S, the Pentax K-5 and the Samsung MV800 (3"). 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.

806,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot A490 is a 115 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 345,000 pixels lower than the Fujifilm X10 (460,000 Pixels), 806,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D300S and the Pentax K-5 (921,000 Pixels) and 173,000 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 150 Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot A490 is a digital camera that takes 150 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm X10 only takes 270 battery life, the Nikon D300S only takes 950 battery life and the Pentax K-5 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.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon PowerShot A490 is only stocked by 1 seller, however the Nikon D300S is stocked by 3 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
