10 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax KS2

Higher Megapixels

The Pentax KS2 is a 20.12MP digital camera. That's 10.12MP higher than the easypix W1024 (10MP), 4.12MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 (16MP) and 6.12MP higher than the Polaroid IF045 (14MP). 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.

5472 X 3648 Still Image Resolution

The Pentax KS2 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3648, but the easypix W1024 and the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 support a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456 and the Polaroid IF045 supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2736. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak WP1 support. 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 Pentax KS2 is a dustproof digital camera (as is the Fujifilm FinePix XP80), however the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Full HD Video

The Pentax KS2 supports Full HD video, however the easypix W1024, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Pentax KS2 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Fujifilm FinePix XP80), but the easypix W1024 and the Polaroid IF045 have a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and the Kodak WP1 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Pentax KS2 is 3" screen. That's 0.3" larger than the easypix W1024, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Polaroid IF045 (2.7"). More ...

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

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

HDMI

The Pentax KS2 has an HDMI (as does the Fujifilm FinePix XP80), however the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

480 Battery Life

The Pentax KS2 takes 480 battery life, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 only takes 210 battery life and the Kodak WP1 only takes 120 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the easypix W1024 or the Polaroid IF045. It is possible that they do 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 Pentax KS2 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Fujifilm FinePix XP80), whereas the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 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 Pentax KS2 has a built-in flash, and so do the easypix W1024, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Polaroid IF045, but the Kodak WP1 does 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.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax KS2

528g Heavier

The Pentax KS2 has a weight of 618g, however the easypix W1024 is a 98g digital camera (520g lighter), the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 162g digital camera (456g lighter), the Kodak WP1 is a 130g digital camera (488g lighter) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 90g digital camera (528g 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.

Not Waterproof

The Pentax KS2 is not waterproof, however the easypix W1024, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Pentax KS2 does not have a GPS (As do the the easypix W1024 and the Polaroid IF045), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax KS2 has received a Kagoo Score of 73, whereas the easypix W1024 scored 80, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 scored 80 and the Polaroid IF045 scored 80.

More Expensive by $571

The Pentax KS2 is $521 more expensive than the easypix W1024, $421 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, $429 more expensive than the Kodak WP1 and $571 more expensive than the Polaroid IF045.

Older by Over Two Years

The Pentax KS2 is 18 months older than the easypix W1024 and two years older than the Polaroid IF045.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 79%, but Fujifilm has an average rating of 86.3%, Kodak has an average rating of 80% and Polaroid has an average rating of 82%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the KS2 in the US is $610.56 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

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.

Higher Waterproof Up To

Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is 15m waterproof. That's 12m higher than the easypix W1024 and the Polaroid IF045 (3m). More ...

The maximum depth that the manufacturer recommends taking the camera underwater.

A higher the maximum underwater depth allow you to use the camera for scuba diving as well as snorkelling.

Dustproof

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is dustproof, and so is the Pentax KS2, however the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

Shock Resistant

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has a shock resistant, whereas the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1, the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045 do not have this feature. More ...

A shock resistant digital camera is one that is protected against sudden shocks and knocks, such as from the camera being dropped or knocked out of your hand.

Having a shock resistant digital camera means that there is less chance of the camera being damaged or broken due to accidents.

Higher Video Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Pentax KS2, which is 7 times higher video resolution as the easypix W1024 and the Polaroid IF045 (640 x 480 pixels) and twice as high video resolution as the Kodak WP1 (1280 x 720 pixels). More ...

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

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

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Pentax KS2. However the best video resolution supported by the easypix W1024 and the Polaroid IF045 is 640 x 480 pixels (7 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak WP1 support. More ...

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

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

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

A Lot Bigger Internal Memory

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has an internal memory of 96MB, but the Kodak WP1 is only an 8MB internal memory digital camera (88MB smaller). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

HDMI

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has an HDMI, and so does the Pentax KS2, however the easypix W1024, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

Wi-Fi

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 Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Kodak WP1 scored 71 and the Pentax KS2 scored 73.

Overall Reviews Are Better

Based on 51 reviews, the average overall review score of the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is 77%, whereas the average rating of the Polaroid IF045 is 71% (based on 74 reviews).

Better Brand

Fujifilm digital cameras have an average rating of 86.3%, but easypix only has an average rating of 59.4%, Kodak only has an average rating of 80%, Pentax only has an average rating of 79% and Polaroid only has an average rating of 82%.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fujifilm FinePix XP80

Heavier

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 162g digital camera. That's 64g heavier than the easypix W1024 (98g), 32g heavier than the Kodak WP1 (130g), 456g lighter than the Pentax KS2 (618g) and 72g heavier than the Polaroid IF045 (90g). More ...

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

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

Lower Megapixels

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has a megapixels of 16.4MP, but the easypix W1024 is a 10MP digital camera (6.4MP lower), the Kodak WP1 is a 16MP digital camera (0.4MP lower), the Pentax KS2 is a 20.12MP digital camera (3.72MP higher) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 14MP digital camera (2.4MP 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, and so does the easypix W1024, but the Pentax KS2 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3648. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak WP1 support. 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.

3x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 has a digital zoom of 2x, whereas the easypix W1024 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (2x bigger) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (3x 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.

44,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 6 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the easypix W1024 is an 800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (5,600 lower), the Pentax KS2 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (44,800 higher) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,200 lower). More ...

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

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

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is only 2.7" screen (as does the Polaroid IF045), but the easypix W1024 is a 2.4" screen digital camera (0.3" smaller) and the Pentax KS2 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.3" larger). More ...

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

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Easypix W1024

Waterproof

The easypix W1024 is a waterproof digital camera (as are the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1 and the Polaroid IF045), however the Pentax KS2 is not. 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.

Built-in Flash

The easypix W1024 has a built-in flash (as do the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045), whereas the Kodak WP1 does 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 easypix W1024 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, however the Kodak WP1 scored 71 and the Pentax KS2 scored 73.

Overall Reviews Are Better

Based on 45 reviews, the average review score of the easypix W1024 is 77%, however the average rating of the Polaroid IF045 is 71% (based on 74 reviews).

Took Good Photos

On average reviewers thought the easypix W1024 took good photos. More than 10 people thought that it was really able to produce good images and six people thought that it was also good for underwater photography.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Easypix W1024

Heavier

The easypix W1024 is a 98g digital camera. That's 64g lighter than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (162g), 32g lighter than the Kodak WP1 (130g), 520g lighter than the Pentax KS2 (618g) and 8g heavier than the Polaroid IF045 (90g). 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.

Significantly Lower Megapixels

The easypix W1024 has a megapixels of 10MP, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 are both 16MP digital cameras (6MP higher), the Pentax KS2 is a 20.12MP digital camera (10.12MP higher) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 14MP digital camera (4MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. 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 easypix W1024 supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, whereas the Pentax KS2 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3648. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak WP1 support. 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 Waterproof Up To

The easypix W1024 is a 3m waterproof digital camera, and so does the Polaroid IF045. That's 12m lower than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (15m). More ...

The maximum depth that the manufacturer recommends taking the camera underwater.

A higher the maximum underwater depth allow you to use the camera for scuba diving as well as snorkelling.

20% Smaller Digital Zoom

The easypix W1024 has a digital zoom of 4x, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera (1x bigger). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The easypix W1024 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 800, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (5,600 higher), the Pentax KS2 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (50,400 higher) and the Polaroid IF045 is a 200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (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.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The easypix W1024 does not support Full HD video, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1, the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The easypix W1024 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so is the Polaroid IF045, which is 7 times lower video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 3 times lower video resolution as the Kodak WP1 (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.

7 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the easypix W1024 is 640 x 480 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Polaroid IF045. But the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (7 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak WP1 support. More ...

The easypix W1024 also supports a 320 x 240 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.

0.6" Smaller Display Diagonal

The easypix W1024 is a 2.4" screen digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Polaroid IF045 are both 2.7" screen digital cameras (0.3" larger) and the Pentax KS2 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.6" 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The easypix W1024 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Polaroid IF045), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1 and the Pentax KS2 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The easypix W1024 does not have a GPS (As do the the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045), however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 do. More ...

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

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

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The easypix W1024 does not support Wi-Fi, but the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1, the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045 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 easypix W1024 does not feature bluetooth, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1, the Pentax KS2 and the Polaroid IF045 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.

$50 More Expensive

The easypix W1024 is more expensive than the Polaroid IF045 by $50.

Nine Months Older

The easypix W1024 is older than the Polaroid IF045 by nine months.

Marginally Lower User Review Score

The easypix W1024's average user rating is only 77%, however the Kodak WP1's is 80% (based on 1 review).

The Kodak WP1 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. More ...

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

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

92% Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak WP1 is an 8MB internal memory digital camera. That's 88MB smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (96MB). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

Only 120 Battery Life

The Kodak WP1 is a digital camera that takes 120 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 only takes 210 battery life and the Pentax KS2 only takes 480 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the easypix W1024 or the Polaroid IF045. It is possible that they do 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.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IF045

528g Lighter

The Polaroid IF045 has a weight of 90g, but the easypix W1024 is a 98g digital camera (8g heavier), the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 162g digital camera (72g heavier), the Kodak WP1 is a 130g digital camera (40g heavier) and the Pentax KS2 is a 618g digital camera (528g 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.

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.

38% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Polaroid IF045 is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the easypix W1024 (4x) and 3x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (2x). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IF045 has a built-in flash, and so do the easypix W1024, the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2, whereas the Kodak WP1 does 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 Polaroid IF045 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, however the Kodak WP1 scored 71 and the Pentax KS2 scored 73.

Cheaper by $50

The Polaroid IF045 costs $50.48 less than the easypix W1024, costs $150.47 less than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, costs $142.13 less than the Kodak WP1 and costs $571.04 less than the Pentax KS2.

Newer by Nine Months

The Polaroid IF045 was released nine months after the easypix W1024, released two years after the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, released five years after the Kodak WP1 and released two years after the Pentax KS2

Better for Sports Photography

The Polaroid IF045 is better for sports photography than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and Kodak WP1. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

The Polaroid IF045 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 200, takes unknown battery life and has a camera shutter speed of unknown.
Better for Wildlife Photography

The Polaroid IF045 is better for wildlife photography than the easypix W1024, Fujifilm FinePix XP80, Kodak WP1 and Pentax KS2. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

The Polaroid IF045 has an optical zoom of 5x, has unknown Auto Focus (AF) points, has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 200 and has a camera shutter speed of unknown.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IF045

Lower Megapixels

The Polaroid IF045 is a 14MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the easypix W1024 (10MP), 2MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 (16MP) and 6.12MP lower than the Pentax KS2 (20.12MP). 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 Polaroid IF045 supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2736, whereas the easypix W1024 and the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 support a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456 and the Pentax KS2 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3648. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak WP1 support. 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.

12m Lower Waterproof Up To

The Polaroid IF045 is a 3m waterproof digital camera (as does the easypix W1024), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a 15m waterproof digital camera (12m higher). More ...

The maximum depth that the manufacturer recommends taking the camera underwater.

A higher the maximum underwater depth allow you to use the camera for scuba diving as well as snorkelling.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Polaroid IF045 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 200. That's 600 lower than the easypix W1024 (800), 6,200 lower than the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (6,400) and 51,000 lower than the Pentax KS2 (51,200). More ...

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

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

Lower Video Resolution

The Polaroid IF045 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as is the easypix W1024), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Kodak WP1 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.

7 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Polaroid IF045 is 640 x 480 pixels pixels which is also supported by the easypix W1024. But the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Pentax KS2 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (7 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak WP1 support. More ...

The Polaroid IF045 also supports a 320 x 240 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.

10% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Polaroid IF045 is a 2.7" screen digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP80. That's 0.3" larger than the easypix W1024 (2.4") and 0.3" smaller than the Pentax KS2 (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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Polaroid IF045 does not have an HDMI (As does the the easypix W1024), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP80, the Kodak WP1 and the Pentax KS2 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 Polaroid IF045 does not have a GPS (As do the the easypix W1024 and the Pentax KS2), however the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 and the Kodak WP1 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.
