The Nikon 26 does not support Full HD video, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support Full HD video.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This camera has been on the market since April 2017.


Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the Nikon 26 has a relatively average display diagonal compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think the Sony HX100V which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Df ($1,995.95) (3.2"), the D4 ($4,299.99) (3.2"), or the D4S ($4,489.00) (3.2") all from Nikon which is also higher rated.

Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon 26 has a pretty typical digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Nikon L31, or the Canon A3300 IS.

If this Nikon digital camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the WB250 (5x), or the SAMSUNG DV300F (5x) both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Nikon 26 has a fairly typical optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other 5x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Nikon L31, the Canon A3300 IS, and the Fujifilm FinePix Z1000EXR which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the Canon 150 (8x and higher rated).
