9 Reasons For

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on compact camera digital cameras that came out more than two years ago. 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 Rollei digital camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50 (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

Compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the Powerflex 850 have optical zooms of between 2.7x and 63x, and the average optical zoom is 9.6x. The Powerflex 850 has a fairly big optical zoom (12 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras that were launched around the same time as the Powerflex 850.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 12x optical zoom cameras currently available including the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (£189.46) which has better reviews.
