Why Has it Scored 85?

a number of reviews mentioned that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 82%, based on 19 reviews. Looking across the entire Nikon digital camera range, the average reviews for all Nikon digital cameras are also excellent.
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 Praktica digital camera is one of the best selling cameras currently on the market.
The Luxmedia Z250 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
5152 x 3864 pixels image resolution
JPEG video resolution
106g accessories
100.39 x 59.00 x 21.45mm weight
Li-ion battery np-45 dimensions
8 pin micro USB, USB 2.0 full speed power source
Up to 6400 USB
1280x720/ 30fps (hd)/ 640x480/ 30fps (vga) 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.
