17 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K50

Higher Megapixels

The Pentax K50 is a 16.3 digital camera. That's 4.2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (12.1MP), 6.3MP higher than the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 (10MP) and 1.9MP higher than the Samsung ST90 (14.4MP). 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 a dustproof digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Twice As High Video Resolution

The Pentax K50 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

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. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS 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 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.

10% Larger Display Diagonal

The Pentax K50 has a display diagonal of 3, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6. That's 0.3" larger than the Samsung ST90 (2.7"). 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 K50 has an HDMI (as does the Ricoh CX6), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 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.

980 Battery Life

The Pentax K50 is a digital camera that takes 980 battery life, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only takes 370 battery life, the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Pentax K50 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 80, the Ricoh CX6 scored only 73 and the Samsung ST90 scored 77.

Cheaper by $48

The Pentax K50 costs $100.00, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is $148.00 and the Samsung ST90 is $165.99.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

11 More Awards

The Pentax K50 has received 12 awards from expert review sites, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Ricoh CX6 has received 2 awards and the Samsung ST90 has received 1 award.

A Better Size

On average reviewers thought the Pentax K50 was a better size. Several people thought that it was a good body shape, was very compact and wasn't heavy and bulky.

Has Useful Technical Features

Our analysis of the Pentax K50 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Pentax K50 has useful technical features. Several people thought that it had brilliant features and had a powerful motor.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K50

555g Heavier

The Pentax K50 has a weight of 660, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (352g lighter), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (175g lighter), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (480g lighter) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (555g 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.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152, 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 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.

309,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Pentax K50 is a 921 display resolution digital camera. That's 691,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 (230,000 Pixels) and 309,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 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.

Older by Nine Months

The Pentax K50 is nine months older than the Ricoh CX6 and five months older than the Samsung ST90.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 82.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.1% and Samsung has an average rating of 83.9%.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3000

10% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D3000 has a display diagonal of 3, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Pentax K50 and the Ricoh CX6. That's 0.3" larger than the Samsung ST90 (2.7"). 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3000 supports Wi-Fi, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Pentax K50, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3000 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 80, the Ricoh CX6 scored only 73 and the Samsung ST90 scored 77.

11 More Awards

The Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards from expert review sites, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Ricoh CX6 has received 2 awards and the Samsung ST90 has received 1 award.

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 13 reviews, the Nikon D3000 has an average user review score of 89%, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has an average rating of 88% (based on 181 reviews) and the Samsung ST90 has an average rating of 60% (based on 2 reviews).

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3000

380g Heavier

The Nikon D3000 has a weight of 485, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (177g lighter), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (175g heavier), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (305g lighter) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (380g 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 Nikon D3000 is a 10.2 digital camera. That's 1.9MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (12.1MP), 6.1MP lower than the Pentax K50 (16.3MP), 0.2MP higher than the Ricoh CX6 (10MP) and 4.2MP lower than the Samsung ST90 (14.4MP). More ...

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

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

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS 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.

80% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1 digital zoom digital camera. That's 3.8x smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Ricoh CX6 (4.8x) and 4x 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

Nikon D3000 is only 3 maximum ISO speed, and so does the Ricoh CX6. That's 1,600 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (1,600) and 48,000 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.

1,000,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3000 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung ST90. That's 691,000 pixels lower than the Pentax K50 (921,000 Pixels) and 1,000,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon D3000 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Pentax K50, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 do. More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D3000 does not have a GPS, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Pentax K50, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ST90 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.

Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 1x lower than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (2x). 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.

Only 500 Battery Life

The Nikon D3000 is a digital camera that takes 500 battery life, whereas the Pentax K50 only takes 980 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.

Not Currently Available

We couldn't find any retailers that are currently selling the product. More ...

You can sign up to a price alert to be notified when this product becomes available.
Older by Over One Year

The Nikon D3000 is two months older than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, eight months older than the Pentax K50, 17 months older than the Ricoh CX6 and 13 months older than the Samsung ST90.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The Nikon D3000 has an average expert score of 80%, but the Pentax K50 has an average expert rating of 86% (based on 71 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Nikon D3000 has an average overall score of 86%, but the Pentax K50 has an average overall rating of 89% (based on 71 reviews).

Worse Brand

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

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ST90

Lighter

The Samsung ST90 is a 105 digital camera. That's 203g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (308g), 380g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 555g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g) 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 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung ST90 supports a still image resolution of 4320 x 3240, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Nikon D3000 (2896 x 1944), 7 times higher still image resolution as the Pentax K50 (1728 x 1152) and 11 times higher still image resolution as the Ricoh CX6 (1280 x 960). 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 5, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Ricoh CX6 are both only 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (0.2x smaller) and the Nikon D3000 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.

Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung ST90 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.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ST90

Lower Megapixels

The Samsung ST90 has a megapixels of 14.4, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12.1MP digital camera (2.3MP lower), the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 10MP digital cameras (4.4MP lower) and the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (1.9MP 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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Samsung ST90 does not support Full HD video, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Ricoh CX6, which is half as high video resolution as 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS. However the best video resolution supported by 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 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 30, but 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 SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Ricoh CX6 are all 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 (as do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Nikon D3000), however the Pentax K50 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 77, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS scored 80, the Nikon D3000 scored 83 and the Pentax K50 scored 83.

$66 More Expensive

The Samsung ST90 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS by $18 and more expensive than the Pentax K50 by $66.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 store sell the Samsung ST90, but 4 sellers sell the Pentax K50. More ...

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

The Samsung ST90 is older than the Ricoh CX6 by four months.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Samsung ST90 has received 1 award, the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards, the Pentax K50 has received 12 awards and the Ricoh CX6 has received 2 awards.

A Lot Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Samsung ST90 is only 68%, whereas the average expert rating of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 78% (based on 45 reviews), the Nikon D3000 is 80% (based on 93 reviews), the Pentax K50 is 86% (based on 71 reviews) and the Ricoh CX6 is 75% (based on 20 reviews).

Significantly Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Samsung ST90 is only 60%, whereas the average user rating of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is 88% (based on 181 reviews) and the Nikon D3000 is 89% (based on 13 reviews).

Worse Brand

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

Higher Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, whereas the Ricoh CX6 only has 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.

A Little Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a display diagonal of 3 (as do the Nikon D3000, the Pentax K50 and the Ricoh CX6), however the Samsung ST90 is only a 2.7" screen digital camera (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.

1x Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a maximum playback zoom of 2, but the Nikon D3000 is only a 1x maximum playback zoom digital camera (1x lower). More ...

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

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

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Nikon only has an average rating of 91.1%, Pentax only has an average rating of 82.2%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 76.1% and Samsung only has an average rating of 83.9%.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

40% Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308 digital camera. That's 177g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 352g lighter than the Pentax K50 (660g), 128g heavier than the Ricoh CX6 (180g) and 203g 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.

4.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a megapixels of 12.1, however the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 10MP digital cameras (2.1MP lower), the Pentax K50 is a 16.3MP digital camera (4.2MP higher) and the Samsung ST90 is a 14.4MP digital camera (2.3MP 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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS supports a still image resolution of 4000 x 3000, however 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a digital zoom of 4, but the Nikon D3000 is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (3x smaller), the Ricoh CX6 is a 4.8x digital zoom digital camera (0.8x bigger) and the Samsung ST90 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. 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

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is only 1 maximum ISO speed, but the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (1,600 higher) and the Pentax K50 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (49,600 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

40% Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 12 flash recharging time digital camera. That's 8s slower than the Samsung ST90 (4s). 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS 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 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels 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 ST90. Whereas the best video resolution supported by 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.

1,000,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has a display resolution of 230 (as do the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90), whereas the Pentax K50 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.

610 Less Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a digital camera that takes 370 battery life, whereas 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 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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Nikon D3000 scored 83 and the Pentax K50 scored 83.

$48 More Expensive

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is more expensive than the Pentax K50 by $48.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, however 4 shops sell the Pentax K50. More ...

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

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is older than the Pentax K50 by six months, older than the Ricoh CX6 by 15 months and older than the Samsung ST90 by 11 months.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has received 7 awards, the Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards and the Pentax K50 has received 12 awards.

Lower Expert Review Score

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS only has an average expert rating of 78%, but the Nikon D3000 has an average expert rating of 80% (based on 93 reviews) and the Pentax K50 has an average expert rating of 86% (based on 71 reviews).

Moderately Lower User Review Score

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has an average user rating of 88%, but the Nikon D3000 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 13 reviews).

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

20% Bigger Internal Memory

The Ricoh CX6 is a 40 internal memory digital camera. That's 10MB bigger than the Samsung ST90 (30MB). 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Ricoh CX6 has a display diagonal of 3, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Pentax K50. That's 0.3" larger than the Samsung ST90 (2.7"). 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 Ricoh CX6 has an HDMI (as does the Pentax K50), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, the Nikon D3000 and the Samsung ST90 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.

Newer by Four Months

The Ricoh CX6 was released eight years ago, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS was released 10 years ago, the Nikon D3000 was released 10 years ago, the Pentax K50 was released nine years ago and the Samsung ST90 was released nine years ago

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

A Lot Heavier

The Ricoh CX6 has a weight of 180, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a 308g digital camera (128g heavier), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (305g heavier), the Pentax K50 is a 660g digital camera (480g heavier) and the Samsung ST90 is a 105g digital camera (75g 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.

39% Lower Megapixels

The Ricoh CX6 is a 10 digital camera. That's 2.1MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (12.1MP), 0.2MP lower than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP), 6.3MP lower than the Pentax K50 (16.3MP) and 4.4MP lower than the Samsung ST90 (14.4MP). 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.

11 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, 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, the Pentax K50 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152 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.

Only 3648 X 2736 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

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 Ricoh CX6 is a 4.8 digital zoom digital camera. That's 0.8x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (4x), 3.8x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x) and 0.2x smaller than the Samsung ST90 (5x). More ...

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, and so does the Nikon D3000. That's 1,600 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (1,600) and 48,000 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung ST90), however the Pentax K50 has 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.

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 Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and the Samsung ST90 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution) and the Pentax K50 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (7 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D3000 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 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 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.
