4 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D80

Slightly Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Nikon D80 has a viewfinder screen size of 3.2" (as does the Canon EOS 5D Mark III), whereas the Olympus OM-D EM1X is only a 3" viewfinder screen size digital camera (0.2" smaller). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D80 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Samsung NX1000, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does 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.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon D80 has a built-in flash (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X 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.

13 Months Newer

The Nikon D80 was released six years ago, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III was released nine years ago, the Olympus OM-D EM1X was released seven years ago, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 was released eight years ago and the Samsung NX1000 was released nine years ago

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D80

Heavier

The Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera. That's 365g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 142g heavier than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (443g), 267g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g) and 367.3g 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.

Vastly Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D80 has a megapixels of 10.2MP, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (12.1MP higher), the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 are both 16MP digital cameras (5.8MP higher) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 20.3MP digital camera (10.1MP higher). More ...

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

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

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D80 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, which is half as high still image resolution as the Olympus OM-D EM1X (4608 x 3456) and half as high still image resolution as the Samsung NX1000 (5472 x 3080). More ...

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

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

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon D80 is only 1 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Olympus OM-D EM1X are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (24,000 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 are both 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (11,200 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.

22% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon D80 has a display diagonal of 2.5", however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 are all 3" screen digital cameras (0.5" 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.

64% Narrower Field of View

The Nikon D80 has a field of view of 36%, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 are all 100% field of view digital cameras (64% wider). 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.

810,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D80 has a display resolution of 230 pixels, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (810,000 pixels higher), the Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 1,037,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (807,000 pixels higher), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels higher) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels higher). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon D80 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X, 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.

8% Smaller Eye Relief

Nikon D80 is only 19.5mm Eye relief. That's 1.5mm smaller than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (21mm). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D80 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 79 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80.

$554 More Expensive

The Nikon D80 is more expensive than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III by $170, more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 by $315 and more expensive than the Samsung NX1000 by $554.

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 90.4%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

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

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

36% Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera. That's 12.1MP higher than the Nikon D80 (10.2MP), 6.3MP higher than the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (16MP) and 2MP higher than the Samsung NX1000 (20.3MP). 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 is the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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.

1x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 5x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x bigger than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (4x). More ...

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

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

Full HD Video

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports Full HD video (as do the Olympus OM-D EM1X, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D80 does not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon EOS 5D Mark III is 3.2" screen. That's 0.7" larger than the Nikon D80 (2.5") and 0.2" larger than the Olympus OM-D EM1X, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 (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.

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 64% wider than the Nikon D80 (36%). More ...

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

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

6% Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" viewfinder screen size digital camera, and so does the Nikon D80. That's 0.2" larger than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (3"). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

HDMI

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has an HDMI (as do the Olympus OM-D EM1X, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), however the Nikon D80 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 D80 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X 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.

950 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III takes 950 battery life, however the Olympus OM-D EM1X only takes 330 battery life, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 only takes 310 battery life and the Samsung NX1000 only takes 320 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Wi-Fi

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports Wi-Fi (as do the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Samsung NX1000), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but Nikon only has an average rating of 90.4%, Olympus only has an average rating of 80.2%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 87.6% and Samsung only has an average rating of 84.2%.

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

A Lot Heavier

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has a weight of 950g, however the Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera (365g lighter), the Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 443g digital camera (507g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 318g digital camera (632g lighter) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (732.3g lighter). More ...

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

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

Only 3840 X 2560 Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III supports a still image resolution of 3840 x 2560, but the Nikon D80 supports a still image resolution of 3872 x 2592, the Olympus OM-D EM1X supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 4576 x 3056 and the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080. More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is not waterproof (As does the the Olympus OM-D EM1X), however the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 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.

50% Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 10x 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 D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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 79, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80.

More Expensive by $384

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is $145 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and $384 more expensive than the Samsung NX1000.

Older by Over Three Years

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is four years older than the Nikon D80, three years older than the Olympus OM-D EM1X, 15 months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and seven months older than the Samsung NX1000.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is 152mm wide, 76.4mm tall, 116.4mm deep and weighs 950g.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

Lighter

The Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera. That's 732.3g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 367.3g lighter than the Nikon D80 (585g), 225.3g lighter than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (443g) and 100.3g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g). More ...

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

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

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (3840 x 2560) and twice as high still image resolution as the Nikon D80 (3872 x 2592). 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 Samsung NX1000 is dustproof, and so is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, whereas the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 are not. More ...

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

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

Full HD Video

The Samsung NX1000 supports Full HD video, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, whereas the Nikon D80 does not. More ...

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

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

64% 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 D80 is only a 36% field of view digital camera (64% narrower). More ...

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

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

HDMI

The Samsung NX1000 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, whereas the Nikon D80 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 are the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D80 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.

A Lot Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Samsung NX1000 has a maximum playback zoom of 20x, 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 D80 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X 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, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does 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, and so does the Olympus OM-D EM1X, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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.

$239 Cheaper

The Samsung NX1000 costs $195.68, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is $580.00, the Nikon D80 is $750.00, the Olympus OM-D EM1X is $1,499.00 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is $434.99.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung NX1000

Marginally Lower Megapixels

The Samsung NX1000 has a megapixels of 20.3MP, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (2MP higher), the Nikon D80 is a 10.2MP digital camera (10.1MP lower) and the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 are both 16MP digital cameras (4.3MP 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 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 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (12,800 higher) and the Nikon D80 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (11,200 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.

0.2" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung NX1000 has a display diagonal of 3" (as do the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" larger) and the Nikon D80 is a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.5" smaller). More ...

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

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

119,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung NX1000 has a display resolution of 921 pixels, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D80 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels lower), the Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 1,037,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (116,000 pixels higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 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.

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 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X only takes 330 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Samsung NX1000 does not have a built-in flash (As does the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III), but the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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 77, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 79, the Nikon D80 scored 78 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 scored 80.

Over Three Years Older

The Samsung NX1000 is older than the Nikon D80 by three years, older than the Olympus OM-D EM1X by two years and older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 by eight months.

Worse Brand

Samsung digital cameras have an average rating of only 84.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.4% and Panasonic has an average rating of 87.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the NX1000 in the US is $195.68 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

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, and so does the Olympus OM-D EM1X, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung NX1000 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 Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Samsung NX1000), but the Nikon D80 does not have this feature. More ...

Better Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III scored 79, the Nikon D80 scored 78, the Olympus OM-D EM1X scored 72 and the Samsung NX1000 scored 77.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has a weight of 318g, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 950g digital camera (632g heavier), the Nikon D80 is a 585g digital camera (267g heavier), the Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 443g digital camera (125g heavier) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 217.7g digital camera (100.3g lighter). More ...

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

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

Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 6.3MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (22.3MP), 5.8MP higher than the Nikon D80 (10.2MP), 0.3MP lower than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (16.3MP) and 4.3MP lower than the Samsung NX1000 (20.3MP). 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 4576 X 3056 Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 supports a still image resolution of 4576 x 3056, whereas the Olympus OM-D EM1X supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456 and the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080. More ...

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

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

20% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 1x smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (5x). More ...

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

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

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 and the Olympus OM-D EM1X (25,600) and 11,200 higher than the Nikon D80 (1,600). More ...

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

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

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 3" screen digital camera, and so do the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Samsung NX1000. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (3.2") and 0.5" larger than the Nikon D80 (2.5"). More ...

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

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

Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460 pixels 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 D80 (230,000 Pixels), 577,000 pixels lower than the Olympus OM-D EM1X (1,037,000 Pixels) and 461,000 pixels lower than the Samsung NX1000 (921,000 Pixels). More ...

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

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

20% Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16x 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 Olympus OM-D EM1X only takes 330 battery life and the Samsung NX1000 only takes 320 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does not support Wi-Fi, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X 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, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80, the Olympus OM-D EM1X and the Samsung NX1000 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 $239

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is $239 more expensive than the Samsung NX1000.

Older by Over Two Years

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is three years older than the Nikon D80 and 19 months older than the Olympus OM-D EM1X.

The Olympus OM-D EM1X has an HDMI, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000, however the Nikon D80 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 Olympus OM-D EM1X is 3D, and so are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D80 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.

Bigger Eye Relief

The Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 21mm Eye relief digital camera. That's 1.5mm bigger than the Nikon D80 (19.5mm). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Wi-Fi

The Olympus OM-D EM1X supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Samsung NX1000, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 does 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 Olympus OM-D EM1X features bluetooth, and so does the Samsung NX1000, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the Nikon D80 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 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.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus OM-D EM1X

34% Heavier

The Olympus OM-D EM1X is a 443g digital camera. That's 507g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (950g), 142g lighter than the Nikon D80 (585g), 125g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 (318g) and 225.3g 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.

6MP Lower Megapixels

The Olympus OM-D EM1X has a megapixels of 16.3MP, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 22.3MP digital camera (6MP higher), the Nikon D80 is a 10.2MP digital camera (6.1MP lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 16MP digital camera (0.3MP lower) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 20.3MP 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 Olympus OM-D EM1X supports a still image resolution of 4608 x 3456, but the Samsung NX1000 supports a still image resolution of 5472 x 3080. More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Olympus OM-D EM1X is not waterproof (As does the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III), however the Nikon D80, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000 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.

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

Olympus OM-D EM1X is only 3" screen (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 and the Samsung NX1000), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" larger) and the Nikon D80 is a 2.5" screen digital camera (0.5" smaller). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Olympus OM-D EM1X has a display resolution of 1 pixels, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (3,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D80 is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (807,000 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (577,000 pixels lower) and the Samsung NX1000 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (116,000 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.

0.2" Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Olympus OM-D EM1X has a viewfinder screen size of 3", however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D80 are both 3.2" viewfinder screen size digital cameras (0.2" larger). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

620 Less Battery Life

The Olympus OM-D EM1X takes 330 battery life, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark III only takes 950 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D80. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
