15 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

Compact camera digital cameras built by Panasonic have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just compact camera digital cameras) and found that Panasonic also has good reviews across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the GE J1455.

SD Memory Card

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including the Fujifilm FinePix X10, or the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (£189.46) which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to look at the Sony DSC-WX350 (£159.00) (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

17 Reasons Against

Very Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the Lumix DMC-S2 range from 2.7x to 63x. At only 4 times zoom factor, the Lumix DMC-S2 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10.

If you want a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P310 (4.2x and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 (4.6x and higher rated).

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Most digital cameras that are a similar age to the Lumix DMC-S2 do not support Full HD video. The Lumix DMC-S2 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD video.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a Full HD video and we think the Fujifilm FinePix X10, or the Nikon Coolpix S9500 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Screen Size

At only 2.7 inches, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-S2 has a quite small screen size compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and type to the Lumix DMC-S2. The average screen size of cameras of this age and type is 2.8", and the screen sizes range from 1" to 4.8".

We compared this camera to all the other 2.7" screen digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4, and the Canon IXUS 135 is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Fujifilm X100 (£425.00) (2.8"), the Canon PowerShot SX280 HS (£226.68) (3"), or the Sony DSC-HX60 (£195.75) (3") which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Lumix DMC-S2 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also support WiFi connectivity including the Canon IXUS 240 HS, or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the Lumix DMC-S2, the Lumix DMC-S2 is not 3D compatible.

If you want a camera that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS, or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Lumix DMC-S2 does not have a GPS, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released around the same time as the Lumix DMC-S2 also do not have a GPS.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a GPS and we think the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 (£276.00), the Canon IXUS 140, or the Sony DSC-HX400V (£282.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Only 1/2.33"" Optical Sensor Size

The best optical sensor size of all digital cameras that are a comparable age to the Lumix DMC-S2 is 2/3"" and the worst is 1/2.5"".

With a digital zoom of only 4 times zoom factor, the Lumix DMC-S2 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the Lumix DMC-S2.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS, and the PowerShot SX220 HS both from Canon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this digital camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Samsung WB150 (5x) which is also higher rated.
