16 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3100

3456 X 2304 Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3100 supports a still image resolution of 3456 x 2304, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1280, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712, the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). 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.

Dustproof

The Nikon D3100 is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000), however 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon D3100 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. More ...

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

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

HDMI

The Nikon D3100 has an HDMI (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not have this feature. More ...

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

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

GPS

The Nikon D3100 has a GPS, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. 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.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon D3100 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3100 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80 and the Samsung NX1000 scored 73.

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.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3100

287.3g Heavier

The Nikon D3100 has a weight of 505, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (445g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (187g lighter), the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (287.3g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (10g 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 D3100 is a 14.2 digital camera. That's 8.1MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 1.8MP lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 5.9MP 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.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Nikon D3100 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), 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 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.

22,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D3100 is a 3 maximum ISO speed digital camera, and so does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300. That's 22,400 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (25,600) 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.

64GB Smaller Maximum Memory Card Size

The Nikon D3100 has a maximum memory card size of 64, whereas the Samsung NX1000 is a 128GB maximum memory card size digital camera (64GB larger). More ...

The maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

Nikon D3100 is only 3 screen, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (3.2"). 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.

5% Narrower Field of View

The Nikon D3100 is a 95 field of view digital camera. That's 5% 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 D3100 is a 230 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.

Only 550 Battery Life

The Nikon D3100 takes 550 battery life, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life. More ...

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 Nikon D3100 does not support Wi-Fi (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000 do. 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 Nikon D3100 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do. 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.

More Expensive by $86

The Nikon D3100 is $86 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

Older by Over One Year

The Nikon D3100 is one year older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, four months older than the Samsung NX1000 and 15 months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

Nine Less Awards

The Nikon D3100 has only received 16 awards, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has received 25 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The average expert rating of the Nikon D3100 is 82%, whereas the average expert rating of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is 83% (based on 139 reviews).

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The average user rating of the Nikon D3100 is 94%, whereas the average user rating of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is 95% (based on 83 reviews).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.6%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%.

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

Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3 digital camera. That's 8.1MP higher than the Nikon D3100 (14.2MP), 6.3MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 2.2MP higher 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.

Dustproof

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Nikon D3100 and the Samsung NX1000), however 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. More ...

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

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

6% Larger Display Diagonal

Canon EOS 5D Mark III is 3.2 screen. That's 0.2" larger than the Nikon D3100, 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.

5% Wider Field of View

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 100 field of view digital camera, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000. That's 5% wider than the Nikon D3100 (95%). 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 (as do the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not have this feature. More ...

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

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

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III features multi burst mode (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D3100 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.

Vastly Faster Start-Up Time

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a start-up time of 1, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 1,000ms start-up time digital camera (999ms slower). 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.

950 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III takes 950 battery life, however the Nikon D3100 only takes 550 battery life, 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 ...

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.

A Little Better User Reviews

Based on 83 user reviews, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III has an average review score of 95%, whereas the Nikon D3100 has an average rating of 94% (based on 788 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has an average rating of 86% (based on 34 reviews), the Samsung NX1000 has an average rating of 81% (based on 39 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has an average rating of 78% (based on 115 reviews).

A Little Better Overall Reviews

Based on 83 reviews, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Nikon D3100 has an average rating of 89% (based on 901 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has an average rating of 87% (based on 173 reviews), the Samsung NX1000 has an average rating of 80% (based on 128 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has an average rating of 78% (based on 115 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but Nikon only has an average rating of 90.6%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 85.8%, Samsung only has an average rating of 85.2% and Sony only has an average rating of 88.4%.

Has a Better Lens

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III reviewers thought the Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a better lens. Several people thought that it had a superb lens and autofocus.

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

732.3g Heavier

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a weight of 950, however the Nikon D3100 is a 505g digital camera (445g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (632g lighter), the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (732.3g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (455g 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.

Only 1920 X 1280 Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1280, but the Nikon D3100 supports a still image resolution of 3456 x 2304 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712. 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, however the Nikon D3100, 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.

99% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 5 digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (4x) and 275x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (280x). 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 10 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 6x lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16x) and 10x lower than the Samsung NX1000 (20x). 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), whereas the Nikon D3100, 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark III has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Nikon D3100 scored 81, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 81.

More Expensive by $2,351

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is $2,265 more expensive than the Nikon D3100, $2,114 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, $2,200 more expensive than the Samsung NX1000 and $2,351 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

Fewer Sellers

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is only stocked by 2 stores, but the Nikon D3100 is stocked by 3 stores and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is two months older than the Nikon D3100, 14 months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, six months older than the Samsung NX1000 and 17 months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

Has a Worse Price

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III reviewers thought the Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a worse price.

Less Nicely Designed

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III reviewers thought the Canon EOS 5D Mark III was less nicely designed.

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

78% Lighter

The Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7 digital camera. That's 732.3g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 287.3g lighter than the Nikon D3100 (505g), 100.3g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g) and 277.3g 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.

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

The Samsung NX1000 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, which is twice as big image sensor size as the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (1/2 to 1/2.5"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 5D Mark III 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 dustproof, and so are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D3100, whereas 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, which is twice as high video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (1280 x 720 pixels). More ...

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

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

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, the Nikon D3100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). 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.

34% Larger Maximum Memory Card Size

The Samsung NX1000 is a 128 maximum memory card size digital camera. That's 64GB larger than the Nikon D3100 (64GB). More ...

The maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

Moderately Wider Field of View

The Samsung NX1000 has a field of view of 100 (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), whereas the Nikon D3100 is only a 95% field of view digital camera (5% 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 Samsung NX1000 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not. More ...

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

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

3D

The Samsung NX1000 is 3D, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 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.

10x Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Samsung NX1000 has a maximum playback zoom of 20, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is only a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (10x lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is only a 16x maximum playback zoom digital camera (4x 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Samsung NX1000 features multi burst mode, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, whereas the Nikon D3100 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.

Wi-Fi

The Samsung NX1000 supports Wi-Fi, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, 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.

Bluetooth

The Samsung NX1000 features bluetooth, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. 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.

Took Good Photos

The Samsung NX1000 reviewers thought the Samsung NX1000 took good photos. Over 30 people thought that it was really able to produce good images and several people thought that it also had a brilliant ISO range, image sensor and picture resolution.

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

2MP Lower Megapixels

The Samsung NX1000 has a megapixels of 20.3, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (2MP higher), the Nikon D3100 is a 14.2MP digital camera (6.1MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16MP digital camera (4.3MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 20.1MP digital camera (0.2MP 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.

4 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 1728 x 1152, which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon D3100 (3456 x 2304). More ...

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

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

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Samsung NX1000 is only 12 maximum ISO speed (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 higher) and the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 are both 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (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.

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung NX1000 has a display diagonal of 3 (as do the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" 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.

119,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 has a display resolution of 921, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D3100 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 460,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (460,200 pixels lower). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Samsung NX1000 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), but the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do. More ...

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

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

630 Less Battery Life

The Samsung NX1000 is a digital camera that takes 320 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life, the Nikon D3100 only takes 550 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only takes 350 battery life. More ...

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), but the Nikon D3100, 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 Samsung NX1000 has received a Kagoo Score of 73, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 77, the Nikon D3100 scored 81, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 81.

$151 More Expensive

The Samsung NX1000 is more expensive than the Nikon D3100 by $65 and more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 by $151.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the Samsung NX1000, however 2 shops sell the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 3 shops sell the Nikon D3100 and 3 shops sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300. 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.

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

276x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a digital zoom of 280, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is only a 5x digital zoom digital camera (275x smaller) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (276x 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.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 features smile detection, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 do not feature this benefit. 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.

Built-in Flash

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon D3100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 77, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80 and the Samsung NX1000 scored 73.

$86 Cheaper

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 costs $198.00, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is $2,549.00, the Nikon D3100 is $283.95, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is $434.99 and the Samsung NX1000 is $349.00.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Three Months Newer

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 was released six years ago, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III was released eight years ago, the Nikon D3100 was released eight years ago, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 was released seven years ago and the Samsung NX1000 was released seven years ago

More Solidly Made

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 reviewers thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 was more solidly made. Several people thought that it was really well made and was reliable.

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

Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495 digital camera. That's 455g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 10g lighter than the Nikon D3100 (505g), 177g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g) and 277.3g heavier than the Samsung NX1000 (217.7g). 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.

Slightly Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a megapixels of 20.1, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (2.2MP higher), the Nikon D3100 is a 14.2MP digital camera (5.9MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16MP digital camera (4.1MP lower) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 20.3MP digital camera (0.2MP 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.

Only 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Nikon D3100, which is half as big image sensor size as the Samsung NX1000 (4/3"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 5D Mark III 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.

4 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon D3100 (3456 x 2304). More ...

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

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

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is only 3 maximum ISO speed (as does the Nikon D3100), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 are both 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (9,600 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, which is half as high video resolution as the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

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

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

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). 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.

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

0.2" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a display diagonal of 3 (as do the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" 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.

579,200 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has a display resolution of 460, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (579,200 pixels higher), the Nikon D3100 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,800 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (800 pixels lower) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (460,200 pixels higher). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 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.

600 Less Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a digital camera that takes 350 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life and the Nikon D3100 only takes 550 battery life. More ...

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 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not support Wi-Fi (As do the the Nikon D3100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III 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.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. More ...

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

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

Wider Field of View

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 100 field of view digital camera, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000. That's 5% wider than the Nikon D3100 (95%). 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, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do not. 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 (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 does not have this feature. More ...

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

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

3D

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 3D digital camera (as is the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D3100 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 (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000), but the Nikon D3100 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.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a built-in flash, and so do the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300, whereas 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.

25 More Awards

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has received 25 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III has received no awards, the Nikon D3100 has received 16 awards, the Samsung NX1000 has received 5 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 has received no awards.

A Bit Better Expert Reviews

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has an average expert review score of 83% based on 139 reviews, however the Nikon D3100 has an average rating of 82% (based on 113 reviews) and the Samsung NX1000 has an average rating of 77% (based on 89 reviews).

28 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a weight of 318, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (632g heavier), the Nikon D3100 is a 505g digital camera (187g heavier), the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (100.3g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is a 495g digital camera (177g 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.

29% Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16 digital camera. That's 6.3MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 1.8MP higher than the Nikon D3100 (14.2MP) and 4.1MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 1712 x 1712, whereas the Nikon D3100 supports a still image resolution of 3456 x 2304. 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (5x) and 276x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 (280x). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12, and so does the Samsung NX1000. That's 12,800 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (25,600) and 9,600 higher than the Nikon D3100 and 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

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 3 screen digital camera, and so do the Nikon D3100, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (3.2"). 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460 display resolution digital camera. That's 580,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (1,040,000 Pixels), 230,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D3100 (230,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels lower than the Samsung NX1000 (921,000 Pixels) and 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 a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 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.

20% Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 6x higher than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (10x) and 4x lower than the Samsung NX1000 (20x). 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 310 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is 310, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life, the Nikon D3100 only takes 550 battery life, the Samsung NX1000 only takes 320 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 only takes 350 battery life. More ...

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 do the the Nikon D3100 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Samsung NX1000 do. 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 (As does the the Nikon D3100), whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Samsung NX1000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 do. 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 80, however the Nikon D3100 scored 81 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 scored 81.

More Expensive by $237

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is $151 more expensive than the Nikon D3100, $86 more expensive than the Samsung NX1000 and $237 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

Less Retailers

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is only stocked by 1 store, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is stocked by 2 retailers, the Nikon D3100 is stocked by 3 sellers and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

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

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is three months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300.

User Review Rating is Worse

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1's average user score is 86%, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III's is 95% (based on 83 reviews) and the Nikon D3100's is 94% (based on 788 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1's average overall score is 87%, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III's is 93% (based on 83 reviews) and the Nikon D3100's is 89% (based on 901 reviews).

Worse Brand

Panasonic digital cameras have an average rating of only 85.8%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.6% and Sony has an average rating of 88.4%.
