4 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D80

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D80 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon D80 has a built-in flash, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000 do not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Newer by Two Years

The Nikon D80 is four years newer than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, three years newer than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, three years newer than the Samsung NX1000 and two years newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300

Considerably Better User Reviews

Based on 6 user reviews, the Nikon D80 has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has an average rating of 78% (based on 115 reviews).

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D80

367.3g Heavier

The Nikon D80 has a weight of 585g, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (365g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (267g lighter), the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (367.3g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (90g 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 D80 is a 10.2MP digital camera. That's 12.1MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 5.8MP lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 9.9MP lower than the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (20.1MP). 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 3872 X 2592 Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D80 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 4576 x 3056, the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864. 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.

24,000 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D80 is a 1 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 24,000 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (25,600), 11,200 lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 (12,800) and 1,600 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (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

Nikon D80 is only 2.5" screen. That's 0.5" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (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.

64% Narrower Field of View

The Nikon D80 is a 36% field of view digital camera. That's 64% narrower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 (100%). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D80 is a 230 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 810,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (1,040,000 Pixels), 230,000 pixels lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (460,000 Pixels), 691,000 pixels lower than the Samsung NX1000 (921,000 Pixels) and 230,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon D80 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 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 D80 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D80 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 78 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 82.

More Expensive by $315

The Nikon D80 is $170 more expensive than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and $315 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.9%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%.

The Nikon D80 is 132mm wide, 77mm tall, 103mm deep and weighs 585g.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 5D Mark III

A Lot Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a megapixels of 22.3MP, whereas the Nikon D80 is only a 10.2MP digital camera (12.1MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is only a 16MP digital camera (6.3MP lower) and the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are both only 20.1MP digital cameras (2.2MP 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III is dustproof, and so is the Samsung NX1000, but the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports Full HD video, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300, but the Nikon D80 does 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000, which is twice as high video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 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.

0.7" Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera, whereas the Nikon D80 is only a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.7" smaller) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are all only 3" 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.

64% Wider Field of View

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a field of view of 100% (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Nikon D80 is only a 36% field of view digital camera (64% narrower). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

HDMI

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has an HDMI, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000, but the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III features multi burst mode, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000, but the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. More ...

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

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

Faster Start-Up Time

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1ms start-up time digital camera. That's 999ms faster than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (1,000ms). More ...

'Start-up time' measures how long it takes the camera to start working when you press the power button.

Faster start-up times mean the camera will be ready to use faster, which means there is less chance of losing a good shot because your camera was still getting itself ready.

640 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is 950, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 only takes 310 battery life, the Samsung NX1000 only takes 320 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only takes 350 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Nikon D80 and the Samsung NX1000, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. More ...

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

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

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, whereas Nikon only has an average rating of 90.9%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 87.4%, Samsung only has an average rating of 83.6% and Sony only has an average rating of 88.4%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Heavier

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera. That's 365g heavier than the Nikon D80 (585g), 632g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g), 732.3g heavier than the Samsung NX1000 (217.7g) and 455g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (495g). 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports a still image resolution of 3840 x 2560, which is half as high still image resolution as the Samsung NX1000 (5472 x 3080) and half as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (5152 x 3864). More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is not waterproof, but the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

275x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a digital zoom of 5x, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (1x smaller) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 280x digital zoom digital camera (275x 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does. More ...

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

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

A Lot Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a maximum playback zoom of 10x, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16x maximum playback zoom digital camera (6x higher) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 20x maximum playback zoom digital camera (10x higher). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has received a Kagoo Score of 75, however the Nikon D80 scored 76, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 78 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 82.

13 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

732.3g Lighter

The Samsung NX1000 has a weight of 217.7g, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (732.3g heavier), the Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera (367.3g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (100.3g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (277.3g heavier). More ...

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

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

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Samsung NX1000 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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.

Dustproof

The Samsung NX1000 is a dustproof digital camera (as is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III), however the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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 Samsung NX1000 supports Full HD video (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), however the Nikon D80 does 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 Samsung NX1000 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Samsung NX1000 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. However the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D80 support. More ...

The Samsung NX1000 also supports 1920 x 810 pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels, 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.

40% Wider Field of View

The Samsung NX1000 is a 100% field of view digital camera, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. That's 64% wider than the Nikon D80 (36%). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

HDMI

The Samsung NX1000 has an HDMI (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), however the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not have this feature. More ...

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

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

3D

The Samsung NX1000 is a 3D digital camera (as is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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.

Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Samsung NX1000 is a 20x maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 10x higher than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (10x) and 4x higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16x). More ...

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

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

Multi Burst Mode

The Samsung NX1000 features multi burst mode (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), however the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

Wi-Fi

The Samsung NX1000 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D80), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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.

Bluetooth

The Samsung NX1000 features bluetooth, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

Lower Megapixels

The Samsung NX1000 is a 20.3MP digital camera. That's 2MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 10.1MP higher than the Nikon D80 (10.2MP), 4.3MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 0.2MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (20.1MP). 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 5472 X 3080 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864. 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.

12,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Samsung NX1000 is a 12 maximum ISO speed digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. That's 12,800 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (25,600), 11,200 higher than the Nikon D80 (1,600) and 9,600 higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (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.

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

Samsung NX1000 is only 3" screen, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (3.2") and 0.5" larger than the Nikon D80 (2.5"). 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 NX1000 is a 921 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 119,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (1,040,000 Pixels), 691,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D80 (230,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (460,000 Pixels) and 460,200 pixels higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Samsung NX1000 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has 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 320 Battery Life

The Samsung NX1000 takes 320 battery life, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only takes 350 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Samsung NX1000 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III), whereas the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung NX1000 has received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Nikon D80 scored 76, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 78 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 82.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H300

5152 X 3864 Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports a still image resolution of 3840 x 2560, the Nikon D80 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 4576 x 3056 and the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080. 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.

Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 280x digital zoom digital camera. That's 275x bigger than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (5x) and 276x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (4x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 features smile detection, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports Full HD video (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D80 does 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.

Built-in Flash

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a built-in flash, and so do the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000 do not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 75, the Nikon D80 scored 76, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 78 and the Samsung NX1000 scored 75.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H300

A Lot Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a weight of 495g, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (455g heavier), the Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera (90g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (177g lighter) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (277.3g 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.

10% Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 20.1MP digital camera. That's 2.2MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 9.9MP higher than the Nikon D80 (10.2MP), 4.1MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 0.2MP lower than the Samsung NX1000 (20.3MP). More ...

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 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2 to 1/2.5)" image sensor size, whereas the Samsung NX1000 has a 4/3" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 have. More ...

22,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 3 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 22,400 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (25,600), 1,600 higher than the Nikon D80 (1,600) and 9,600 lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 (12,800). 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 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 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon D80 support. More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

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.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports Full HD video, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300, whereas the Nikon D80 does 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000, which is twice as high video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Nikon D80 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.

A Lot Wider Field of View

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a field of view of 100% (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Nikon D80 is only a 36% field of view digital camera (64% narrower). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a touchscreen, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000, whereas the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. More ...

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

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

3D

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is 3D, and so is the Samsung NX1000, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are not. More ...

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

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

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 features multi burst mode, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000, whereas the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. More ...

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

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

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon D80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000 do not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

$145 Cheaper

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 costs $434.99, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is $580.00 and the Nikon D80 is $750.00.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

100.3g Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera. That's 632g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 267g lighter than the Nikon D80 (585g), 100.3g heavier than the Samsung NX1000 (217.7g) and 177g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (495g). 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.

6.3MP Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a megapixels of 16MP, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (6.3MP higher), the Nikon D80 is a 10.2MP digital camera (5.8MP lower) and the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are both 20.1MP digital cameras (4.1MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 4576 x 3056, however the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864. 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.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a digital zoom of 4x, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 280x digital zoom digital camera (276x 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

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is only 12 maximum ISO speed (as does the Samsung NX1000), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 higher), the Nikon D80 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (11,200 lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 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.

Marginally Smaller Display Diagonal

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a display diagonal of 3" (as do the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" larger) and the Nikon D80 is a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.5" 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.

580,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a display resolution of 460 pixels, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (580,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D80 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower), the Samsung NX1000 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 460,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (800 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does. 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a maximum playback zoom of 16x, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (6x lower) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 20x maximum playback zoom digital camera (4x higher). More ...

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

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

640 Less Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a digital camera that takes 310 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life, the Samsung NX1000 only takes 320 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only takes 350 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. 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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung NX1000 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not feature bluetooth, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 82.

Over Two Years Older

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is older than the Nikon D80 by three years and older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 by three months.

Worse Brand
