10 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon IXUS 170 (£116.23).

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Life X44038 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the Life X44038 do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Sony DSC-HX90V which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than a year. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 (£222.59) (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS (HC MMC+|MMC+|SD|SDHC) which is also higher rated.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

At 5 times zoom factor, the Life X44038 has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras that are a comparable age to the Life X44038. Digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the Life X44038 have digital zooms of between 2x and 120x.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-W830 (£79.99) (32x) which also has a higher rating.

Has One White Balance Mode

The number of white balance modes found on the Life X44038 is more than most digital cameras of a comparable age and type to it. This camera has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most commonly found white balance mode found on compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to the Life X44038.

4608 X 3456 Still Image Resolution

The Life X44038 has a 4608 x 3456 still image resolution which is higher than most cameras of this age and spec. Most compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to it have a 640 x 480 still image resolution. Compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to the Life X44038 still image resolutions range from 640 x 360 to 5152 x 3864.

Chart Edit

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

This camera supports a video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is the most commonly supported video resolution on cameras of this type and age. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080).

Chart Edit

TFT Display

The Life X44038 has a TFT display which is better than the LCD display found on most compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than a year ago. TFT LCDs provide better image quality and higher resolutions to earlier LCD displays but their limitations are narrow viewing angles and poor vislibility in direct sunlight.

This digital camera's display (TFT) is in fact the best display amongst all compact camera digital cameras that were released more than a year ago.

An LCD display is the worst display amongst similar types of digital camera.
