Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 72?

reviews indicate that it has good expert reviews and great user reviews with an average overall rating of 81%, based on 36 reviews.
This digital camera is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Canon digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Bigger than average optical zoom
Average minimum aperture number
Only 4608 x 3456 pixels image resolution
Very low maximum ISO sensitivity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each digital camera by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the digital camera is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec digital cameras come to market, the older digital cameras will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
