10 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3000

3 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, however the Olympus PEN E-PL1 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768, the Ricoh CX6 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

15% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D3000 has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the Ricoh CX6. That's 0.2" larger than the Canon EOS 30D, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (2.8"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3000 supports Wi-Fi, but the Canon EOS 30D, the Olympus PEN E-PL1, the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 do not support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3000 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, but the Canon EOS 30D scored 75, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 scored 73, the Ricoh CX6 scored 74 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 scored 72.

More Popular

The Nikon D3000 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 13 reviews, the Nikon D3000 has an average user review score of 89%, but the Olympus PEN E-PL1 has an average rating of 88% (based on 20 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has an average rating of 75% (based on 4 reviews).

More Fairly Priced

Our analysis of the Nikon D3000 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Nikon D3000 was more fairly priced.

Easier to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Nikon D3000 was easier to use. Over 10 people thought that it was very easy to use and several people thought that it also had superb controls and had a good interface.

Has a Better Lens That Was Good

Our analysis of the Nikon D3000 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Nikon D3000 has a better lens that was good. Over 10 people thought that it had an outstanding lens and nine people thought that it also had an outstanding autofocus.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3000

339g Heavier

The Nikon D3000 has a weight of 485, whereas the Canon EOS 30D is a 700g digital camera (215g heavier), the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 296g digital camera (189g lighter), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (305g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a 146g digital camera (339g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

18% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D3000 is a 10.2 digital camera. That's 2MP higher than the Canon EOS 30D (8.2MP), 2MP lower than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (12.2MP) and 0.2MP higher than the Ricoh CX6 (10MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

90% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1 digital zoom digital camera. That's 6x smaller than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 (7x), 3.8x smaller than the Ricoh CX6 (4.8x) and 9x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (10x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

1,000,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3000 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon EOS 30D and the Olympus PEN E-PL1. That's 1,000,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 Pixels) and 230,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Nikon D3000 does not have an HDMI, however the Canon EOS 30D, the Olympus PEN E-PL1, the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 do. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D3000 does not have a GPS (As does the the Olympus PEN E-PL1), but the Canon EOS 30D, the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Nikon D3000 is a 1 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 9x lower than the Canon EOS 30D (10x) and 13x lower than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 (14x). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

Only 500 Battery Life

The Nikon D3000 is a digital camera that takes 500 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 30D only takes 750 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

More Expensive by £150

The Nikon D3000 is £50 more expensive than the Canon EOS 30D and £150 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5.

Older by Over One Year

The Nikon D3000 is 18 months older than the Ricoh CX6 and two months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5. The Nikon D3000 is the same age as the Canon EOS 30D.

Five Less Awards

The Nikon D3000 has only received 12 awards, however the Olympus PEN E-PL1 has received 17 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Nikon D3000 has an average expert score of 80%, but the Canon EOS 30D has an average expert rating of 84% (based on 54 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Nikon D3000 has an average overall score of 86%, but the Canon EOS 30D has an average overall rating of 87% (based on 54 reviews).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

20 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 30D

750 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 30D takes 750 battery life, however the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 only takes 290 battery life, the Ricoh CX6 only takes 260 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 only takes 230 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

On average reviewers thought the Canon EOS 30D has a better screen or viewfinder. Several people thought that it had a bad viewfinder and screen.

Took Good Photos

On average reviewers thought the Canon EOS 30D took good photos. More than 20 people thought that it was very able to produce good images and several people thought that it also had a good picture resolution, was superb in low light and had a good ISO range.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 30D

A Lot Heavier

The Canon EOS 30D has a weight of 700, however the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (215g lighter), the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 296g digital camera (404g lighter), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (520g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a 146g digital camera (554g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

34% Lower Megapixels

The Canon EOS 30D is an 8.2 digital camera. That's 1.8MP lower than the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 (10MP) and 4MP lower than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (12.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smaller Display Diagonal

Canon EOS 30D is only 2.5 screen. That's 0.5" smaller than the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 (3") and 0.3" smaller than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (2.8"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Canon EOS 30D is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Nikon D3000 and the Olympus PEN E-PL1. That's 1,000,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 Pixels) and 230,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

29% Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon EOS 30D is a 10 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 9x higher than the Nikon D3000 (1x) and 4x lower than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 (14x). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS 30D has received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Nikon D3000 scored 78.

More Expensive by £100

The Canon EOS 30D is £100 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5.

Older by Over One Year

The Canon EOS 30D is 18 months older than the Ricoh CX6 and two months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5. The Canon EOS 30D is the same age as the Nikon D3000.

Less Popular

The Canon EOS 30D is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Eight Less Awards

The Canon EOS 30D has only received 9 awards, but the Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 has received 17 awards.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Trusted Reviews, CNET.co.uk and Tecnozoom.it all gave the Canon EOS 30D a lower review score. More ...

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus PEN E-PL1

26% Higher Megapixels

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 12.3 digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Canon EOS 30D (8.2MP), 2.3MP higher than the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 (10MP) and 0.1MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (12.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

4/3" (4/3)" Image Sensor Size

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, but the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Ricoh CX6), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

HDMI

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has an HDMI (as does the Ricoh CX6), whereas the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 do not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

49% Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 14 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 4x higher than the Canon EOS 30D (10x) and 13x higher than the Nikon D3000 (1x). More ...

The 'playback zoom' attribute denotes how much you can enlarge photos and videos when viewing them on the cameras digital screen.

A larger playback zoom allows you to zoom in closer on details of your shots, allowing you to better analyse them and pick out any faults or issues before you transfer them to a computer.

16 More Awards

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has received 17 awards from expert review sites, however the Canon EOS 30D has received 9 awards, the Nikon D3000 has received 12 awards, the Ricoh CX6 has received 2 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has received 1 award.

Took Good Videos

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 reviewers thought the Olympus PEN E-PL1 took good videos. More than 10 people thought that it was good for video recording.

26 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus PEN E-PL1

A Lot Heavier

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has a weight of 296, whereas the Canon EOS 30D is a 700g digital camera (404g heavier), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (189g heavier), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (116g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a 146g digital camera (150g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768, however the Nikon D3000 supports a still image resolution of 2896 x 1944, the Ricoh CX6 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 7 digital zoom digital camera. That's 6x bigger than the Nikon D3000 (1x), 2.2x bigger than the Ricoh CX6 (4.8x) and 3x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (10x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 does not support Full HD video, however the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000, the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 do. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 has a display diagonal of 2.7. That's 0.1" smaller than the Canon EOS 30D and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (2.8") and 0.3" smaller than the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 (3"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

1,000,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000. That's 1,000,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 Pixels) and 230,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D3000), but the Canon EOS 30D, the Ricoh CX6 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Only 290 Battery Life

The Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a digital camera that takes 290 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 30D only takes 750 battery life and the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX5

80% Lighter

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a 146 digital camera. That's 554g lighter than the Canon EOS 30D (700g), 339g lighter than the Nikon D3000 (485g), 150g lighter than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 (296g) and 34g lighter than the Ricoh CX6 (180g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a digital zoom of 10, but the Nikon D3000 is only a 1x digital zoom digital camera (9x smaller), the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is only a 7x digital zoom digital camera (3x smaller) and the Ricoh CX6 is only a 4.8x digital zoom digital camera (5.2x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Full HD Video

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 supports Full HD video, whereas the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Ricoh CX6 do not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution) and the Ricoh CX6 is 640 x 480 pixels (7 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 support. More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 also supports 1440 x 1080 pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

3D

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is 3D, however the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Ricoh CX6 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

£100 Cheaper

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 costs £99.99, whereas the Canon EOS 30D is £199.99, the Nikon D3000 is £249.99 and the Ricoh CX6 is £506.72.

Has Better Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has better technical features. Over 10 people thought that it had good features.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX5

0.1MP Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a megapixels of 12.2, however the Canon EOS 30D is an 8.2MP digital camera (4MP lower), the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 10MP digital cameras (2.2MP lower) and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 12.3MP digital camera (0.1MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Ricoh CX6, which is half as big image sensor size as the Olympus PEN E-PL1 (4/3"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

3 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 3 times lower still image resolution as the Nikon D3000 (2896 x 1944). More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

3 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, which is 3 times lower video resolution as the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Ricoh CX6 (1280 x 720 pixels). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

20% Smaller Internal Memory

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has an internal memory of 32, however the Ricoh CX6 is a 40MB internal memory digital camera (8MB bigger). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

A Bit Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a display diagonal of 2.8, however the Canon EOS 30D and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 are both 2.7" screen digital cameras (0.1" smaller) and the Nikon D3000 and the Ricoh CX6 are both 3" screen digital cameras (0.2" larger). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

769,200 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has a display resolution of 460, whereas the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000 and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 are all 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (230,800 pixels lower) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 1,230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (769,200 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

520 Less Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a digital camera that takes 230 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 30D only takes 750 battery life, the Nikon D3000 only takes 500 battery life, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 only takes 290 battery life and the Ricoh CX6 only takes 260 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 has received a Kagoo Score of 72, but the Canon EOS 30D scored 75, the Nikon D3000 scored 78, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 scored 73 and the Ricoh CX6 scored 74.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 only has an average expert rating of 76%, but the Canon EOS 30D has an average expert rating of 84% (based on 54 reviews), the Nikon D3000 has an average expert rating of 80% (based on 93 reviews) and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 has an average expert rating of 80% (based on 110 reviews).

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 only has an average user rating of 75%, but the Nikon D3000 has an average user rating of 89% (based on 13 reviews) and the Olympus PEN E-PL1 has an average user rating of 88% (based on 20 reviews).

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Olympus PEN E-PL1), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 only has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon EOS 30D and the Nikon D3000 have. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

17% Bigger Internal Memory

The Ricoh CX6 is a 40 internal memory digital camera. That's 8MB bigger than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (32MB). More ...

Internal memory is the amount of digital storage built into the camera.

The bigger the internal memory of the camera, the more photos can be stored at one time, without having to resort to an external SD card.

15% Larger Display Diagonal

The Ricoh CX6 has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the Nikon D3000. That's 0.2" larger than the Canon EOS 30D, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (2.8"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

HDMI

The Ricoh CX6 has an HDMI (as does the Olympus PEN E-PL1), whereas the Canon EOS 30D, the Nikon D3000 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 do not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

0.1kg Lighter

The Ricoh CX6 has a weight of 0.2, however the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 0.3kg heavy digital camera (0.1kg heavier).

Newer by 16 Months

The Ricoh CX6 was released eight years ago, but the Canon EOS 30D was released 10 years ago, the Nikon D3000 was released 10 years ago, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 was released 10 years ago and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 was released nine years ago

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

34g Heavier

The Ricoh CX6 has a weight of 180, whereas the Canon EOS 30D is a 700g digital camera (520g heavier), the Nikon D3000 is a 485g digital camera (305g heavier), the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is a 296g digital camera (116g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a 146g digital camera (34g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

19% Lower Megapixels

The Ricoh CX6 is a 10 digital camera. That's 1.8MP higher than the Canon EOS 30D (8.2MP), 0.2MP lower than the Nikon D3000 (10.2MP) and 2.2MP lower than the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 (12.2MP). More ...
