Olympus SP810UZ review - LetsGoDigital
Olympus SP810UZ review - LetsGoDigital

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus SP810UZ

Lighter

The Olympus SP810UZ is a 413 digital camera. That's 29g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS (442g), 31g lighter than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (444g), 129g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (542g) and 357g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (770g). 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.

140x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Olympus SP810UZ has a digital zoom of 144, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 are all only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (140x smaller) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is only a 33x digital zoom digital camera (111x 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.

3D

The Olympus SP810UZ is 3D, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III 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.

£115 Cheaper

The Olympus SP810UZ costs £40.00, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is £186.99, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is £155.49, the Nikon Coolpix B500 is £165.99 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is £978.99.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus SP810UZ

A Lot Lower Megapixels

The Olympus SP810UZ has a megapixels of 14, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III are all 20.2MP digital cameras (6.2MP higher) and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 16MP digital camera (2MP 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 Olympus SP810UZ has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500, which is half as big image sensor size as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (1/1 to 1/1.5"). 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.

6 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Olympus SP810UZ supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, which is half as high still image resolution as the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)), half as high still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix B500 (1600 x 1200) and 6 times lower still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (3648 x 2056). 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Olympus SP810UZ is only 1 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 are both 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (1,600 higher), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (24,000 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus SP810UZ does not support Full HD video, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III support this feature. 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.

9 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Olympus SP810UZ has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, which is half as high video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times lower video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). 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.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus SP810UZ is 640 x 480 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (7 times higher video resolution), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (27 times higher video resolution). More ...

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.

A Lot Smaller Internal Memory

The Olympus SP810UZ has an internal memory of 14, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is an 8MB internal memory digital camera (6MB smaller) and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 20MB internal memory digital camera (6MB 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.

998,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Olympus SP810UZ has a display resolution of 230, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 461,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (231,000 pixels higher), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels higher), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (998,800 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.

Hugely Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Olympus SP810UZ has a maximum playback zoom of 1.1, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (8.9x higher). 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 Olympus SP810UZ has received a Kagoo Score of 76, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS scored 84, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 scored 82, the Nikon Coolpix B500 scored 84 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III scored 78.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the Olympus SP810UZ, however 4 retailers sell the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, 9 shops sell the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, 5 retailers sell the Nikon Coolpix B500 and 2 retailers sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Four Years Older

The Olympus SP810UZ is older than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS by four years, older than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 by five years, older than the Nikon Coolpix B500 by four years and older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III by four years.

Worse Brand

Olympus digital cameras have an average rating of only 81.2%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Kodak has an average rating of 85.9%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.6% and Sony has an average rating of 91.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the SP810UZ in the UK is £40.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS

6.3MP Higher Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 20.3 digital camera. That's 0.1MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (20.2MP), 4.3MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (16MP) and 6.3MP higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (14MP). 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.

5184 X 3888 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, but the Nikon Coolpix B500 only has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. 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.

Smile Detection

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS features smile detection, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, however the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS supports Full HD video (as do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Olympus SP810UZ does not support this feature. 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.

2% Wider Field of View

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 100 field of view digital camera. That's 2% wider than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (98%). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

HDMI

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has an HDMI (as do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Olympus SP810UZ does 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.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a GPS, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500, the Olympus SP810UZ and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III do not. 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.

Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 10 maximum playback zoom digital camera. That's 8.9x higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (1.1x). 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.

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS supports Wi-Fi (as do the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ 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 Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 scored 82, the Olympus SP810UZ scored 76 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III scored 78.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS

29g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a weight of 442, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera (2g heavier), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 542g digital camera (100g heavier), the Olympus SP810UZ is a 413g digital camera (29g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 770g digital camera (328g heavier). 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.

Half As Big Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5" image sensor size. 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS supports a still image resolution of 640 x 360 (4:3 - (L) 5184 x 3888| (M) 2592 x 1944| (M1) 3648 x 2736| (M2) 2048 x 1536| (S) 640 x 480|16:9 - (L) 5184 x 2912| (M1) 3648 x 2048| (M2) 1920 x 1080| (S) 640 x 360|3:2 - (L) 5184 x 3456| (M1) 3648 x 2432| (M2) 2048 x 1368| (S) 640 x 424|1:1 - (L) 3888 x 3888| (M1) 2736 x 2736| (M2) 1536 x 1536| (S)), whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), the Nikon Coolpix B500 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, the Olympus SP810UZ supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2056. 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.

98% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500. That's 140x smaller than the Olympus SP810UZ (144x) and 29x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (33x). 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ422. That's 3,200 lower than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (6,400), 1,600 higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (1,600) and 22,400 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (25,600). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Nikon Coolpix B500), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. 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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon Coolpix B500. But the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS also supports 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 461 display resolution digital camera. That's 1,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (460,000 Pixels), 460,000 pixels lower than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (921,000 Pixels), 231,000 pixels higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (230,000 Pixels) and 767,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (1,228,800 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.

Only 205 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is 205, but the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only takes 340 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Olympus SP810UZ. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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 Feature Bluetooth

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

More Expensive by £147

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is £32 more expensive than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, £21 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix B500 and £147 more expensive than the Olympus SP810UZ.

Less Retailers

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is only stocked by 4 retailers, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is stocked by 9 retailers and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is stocked by 5 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
Older by Seven Months

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is seven months older than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and two months older than the Nikon Coolpix B500.

Nine Less Awards

The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has only received 1 award, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 has received 2 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has received 10 awards.

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix B500

129g Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a weight of 542, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 442g digital camera (100g lighter), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera (98g lighter), the Olympus SP810UZ is a 413g digital camera (129g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 770g digital camera (228g heavier). 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.

22% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 16 digital camera. That's 4.2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (20.2MP) and 2MP higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (14MP). 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 Nikon Coolpix B500 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5" image sensor size. 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.

4 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2056. 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.

Only 4608 X 3456 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels. More ...

Not Waterproof

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is not waterproof (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422. That's 140x smaller than the Olympus SP810UZ (144x) and 29x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (33x). 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon Coolpix B500 is only 6 maximum ISO speed. That's 3,200 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (3,200), 4,800 higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (1,600) and 19,200 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (25,600). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon Coolpix B500 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Nikon Coolpix B500 also supports 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.

Narrower Field of View

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 98 field of view digital camera. That's 2% narrower than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS (100%). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

307,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 921 display resolution digital camera. That's 460,000 pixels higher than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS (461,000 Pixels), 461,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (460,000 Pixels), 691,000 pixels higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (230,000 Pixels) and 307,800 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (1,228,800 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.

13 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX10 III

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5"" image sensor size, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. 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.

3648 X 2056 Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2056, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS supports a still image resolution of 640 x 360, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), the Nikon Coolpix B500 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200 and the Olympus SP810UZ supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960. 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.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III features smile detection, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports Full HD video (as do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500), however the Olympus SP810UZ does not support this feature. 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ have a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is 1280 x 720 pixels (9 times lower video resolution) and the Olympus SP810UZ is only 640 x 480 pixels (27 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and 1280 x 720 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.

HDMI

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an HDMI (as do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500), however the Olympus SP810UZ does 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.

Wi-Fi

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports Wi-Fi (as do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500), whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ 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.

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX10 III

A Lot Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a weight of 770, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 442g digital camera (328g lighter), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera (326g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 542g digital camera (228g lighter) and the Olympus SP810UZ is a 413g digital camera (357g 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.

1% Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 20.2 digital camera. That's 0.2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (20MP), 4.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (16MP) and 6.2MP higher than the Olympus SP810UZ (14MP). 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.

Not Waterproof

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is not waterproof (As does the the Nikon Coolpix B500), however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Olympus SP810UZ are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 33 digital zoom digital camera. That's 29x bigger than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 (4x) and 111x smaller than the Olympus SP810UZ (144x). 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 Have a GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III does not have a GPS (As does the the Kodak Pixpro AZ422), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ 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 340 Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III takes 340 battery life, however the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Olympus SP810UZ. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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 Feature Bluetooth

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422), but the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has received a Kagoo Score of 78, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS scored 84, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 scored 82 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 scored 84.

More Expensive by £939

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is £792 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, £824 more expensive than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, £813 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix B500 and £939 more expensive than the Olympus SP810UZ.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is only stocked by 2 stores, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is stocked by 4 sellers, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is stocked by 9 sellers and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is stocked by 5 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is seven months older than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, 14 months older than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and nine months older than the Nikon Coolpix B500.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The average user rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 90%, whereas the average user rating of the Nikon Coolpix B500 is 91% (based on 752 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 9.7% of 62 customers recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, but 80.4% of 764 customers recommend the Nikon Coolpix B500.

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III took good pictures.

Worse for Sports Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for sports photography than the Nikon Coolpix B500. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!
Worse for Wildlife Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for wildlife photography than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and Nikon Coolpix B500. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.
Worse for Portrait Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for portrait photography than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS. More ...

When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.
Worse for Landscape Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for landscape photography than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and Nikon Coolpix B500. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.
Worse for Everyday Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for everyday photography than the Nikon Coolpix B500. More ...

When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III in the UK is £978.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro AZ422

Smile Detection

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 features smile detection (as do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 supports Full HD video, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, however the Olympus SP810UZ does 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.

HDMI

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has an HDMI, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, however the Olympus SP810UZ does not. 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.

Five Months Newer

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is seven months newer than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, five months newer than the Nikon Coolpix B500, five years newer than the Olympus SP810UZ and 14 months newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro AZ422

Heavier

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444 digital camera. That's 2g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS (442g), 98g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (542g), 31g heavier than the Olympus SP810UZ (413g) and 326g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (770g). 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.

Slightly Lower Megapixels

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a megapixels of 20, but the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III are both 20.2MP digital cameras (0.2MP higher), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 16MP digital camera (4MP lower) and the Olympus SP810UZ is a 14MP digital camera (6MP lower). 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 Image Sensor Size

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ, which is half as big image sensor size as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (1/1 to 1/1.5"). 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (3648 x 2056). 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.

140x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a digital zoom of 4 (as do the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500), whereas the Olympus SP810UZ is a 144x digital zoom digital camera (140x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 33x digital zoom digital camera (29x bigger). 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.

22,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 3 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS), whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher), the Olympus SP810UZ is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,600 lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so is the Olympus SP810UZ, which is half as high video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times lower video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B500 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (9 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 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.

Hugely Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has an internal memory of 8, but the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 20MB internal memory digital camera (12MB bigger) and the Olympus SP810UZ is a 14MB internal memory digital camera (6MB 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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a display resolution of 460, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is a 461,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000 pixels higher), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels higher), the Olympus SP810UZ is a 230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (230,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (768,800 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 does not have a GPS (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ do. 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.

400 Less Battery Life

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 takes 200 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS only takes 205 battery life, the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only takes 340 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Olympus SP810UZ. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 does not support Wi-Fi, however the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B500, the Olympus SP810UZ and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Olympus SP810UZ feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.
