7 Reasons For

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that were released around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, or the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (£189.46).

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider 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 also has a higher rating.

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The highest video resolution supported by the Rollei Sportsline 99 is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels digital camera, which is the most frequently found video resolution supported by cameras that came out around the same time as the Sportsline 99. 640 x 480 pixels is also supported by this camera. This Rollei digital camera also supports a video resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. 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).
