9 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax X-5

Smile Detection

The Pentax X-5 features smile detection, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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 Pentax X-5 supports Full HD video (as do the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 do 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.

Bigger Internal Memory

The Pentax X-5 is a 75.3MB internal memory digital camera. That's 67.3MB bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (8MB) and 55.3MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (20MB). 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Pentax X-5 features multi burst mode, whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Built-in Flash

The Pentax X-5 has a built-in flash, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is does not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 99 reviews, the Pentax X-5 has an average user review score of 93%, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is has an average rating of 92% (based on 343 reviews), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has an average rating of 83% (based on 6 reviews) and the Nikon Coolpix B500 has an average rating of 91% (based on 755 reviews).

Better What Digital Camera Review Score

What Digital Camera's Pentax X-5 review gave it a score of 84%, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only has a rating of 80% from the same site.

More Thoughtfully Designed

On average reviewers thought the Pentax X-5 was more thoughtfully designed. Several people thought that it was good-looking, ergonomic and well designed.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

The Pentax X-5 reviewers thought the Pentax X-5 has a better screen or viewfinder. Several people thought that it had a good screen and viewfinder.

28 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax X-5

203g Heavier

The Pentax X-5 has a weight of 507g, whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is is a 304g digital camera (203g lighter), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera (63g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 542g digital camera (35g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 770g digital camera (263g 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.

21% Lower Megapixels

The Pentax X-5 is a 16MP digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix B500. That's 4.2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (20.2MP). 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.

Only 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" Image Sensor Size

The Pentax X-5 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size (as are the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

10 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Pentax X-5 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768, however 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 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2056. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

79% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Pentax X-5 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera. That's 3.2x bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 (4x) and 25.8x 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

Pentax X-5 is only 6,400 maximum ISO speed, and so does the Nikon Coolpix B500. That's 3,200 higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (3,200) 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 Pentax X-5 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Nikon Coolpix B500), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax X-5 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Kodak Pixpro AZ422. Whereas the best video resolution supported by 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). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. More ...

The Pentax X-5 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.

Only 330 Battery Life

The Pentax X-5 is a digital camera that takes 330 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only takes 340 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot sx430 is. 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 Pentax X-5 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Kodak Pixpro AZ422), whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III do. 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 Pentax X-5 does not feature bluetooth (As do the the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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 Pentax X-5 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is scored 81, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 scored 83 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 scored 85.

More Expensive by £40

The Pentax X-5 is £24 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, £5 more expensive than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and £40 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III.

Not As Many Stockists

The Pentax X-5 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is is stocked by 6 sellers, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is stocked by 11 sellers, the Nikon Coolpix B500 is stocked by 8 stores and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is stocked by 4 stores. More ...

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

The Pentax X-5 is five years older than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, four years older than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, four years older than the Nikon Coolpix B500 and three years older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix B500

Full HD Video

The Nikon Coolpix B500 supports Full HD video (as do the Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 do 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.

HDMI

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has an HDMI (as do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Pentax X-5 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.

600 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Nikon Coolpix B500 is 600, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 only takes 200 Shots battery life, the Pentax X-5 only takes 330 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only takes 340 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot sx430 is. 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon Coolpix B500 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5 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.

Bluetooth

The Nikon Coolpix B500 features bluetooth, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III do not 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.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a built-in flash, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is does not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Better Kagoo Score

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is scored 81, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 scored 83, the Pentax X-5 scored 80 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III scored 80.

More Popular

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

More Customers Recommend it

80.5% of 765 customers recommend the Nikon Coolpix B500, whereas only 80.3% of 395 customers recommend the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and only 9.7% of 185 customers recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III.

27 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix B500

238g Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a weight of 542g, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is is a 304g digital camera (238g lighter), the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera (98g lighter), the Pentax X-5 is a 507g digital camera (35g 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.

4.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 16MP digital camera, and so does the Pentax X-5. That's 4.2MP lower than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (20.2MP). 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.

Half As Big Image Sensor Size

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, whereas 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. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

Not Waterproof

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is not waterproof (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5 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.

88% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Kodak Pixpro AZ422. That's 3.2x smaller than the Pentax X-5 (7.2x) 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 Nikon Coolpix B500 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 6,400, and so does the Pentax X-5. That's 3,200 higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (3,200) 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Pentax X-5), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon Coolpix B500 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. 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). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

Smaller Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 20MB internal memory digital camera. That's 12MB bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (8MB) and 55.3MB smaller than the Pentax X-5 (75.3MB). 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 461,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (460,000 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.

More Expensive by £47

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is £31 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, £12 more expensive than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, £7 more expensive than the Pentax X-5 and £47 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III.

Less Retailers

The Nikon Coolpix B500 is only stocked by 8 stores, whereas the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is stocked by 11 shops. 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.

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

18% Higher Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 0.2MP higher than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 (20MP) and 4.2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 (16MP). 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.

1/1 to 1/1.5"" Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has an 1/1 to 1/1.5"" image sensor size, but the Kodak Pixpro AZ422, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

4 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III supports a still image resolution of 3648 x 2056, however 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 Pentax X-5 supports a still image resolution of 1024 x 768. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

47% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 33x digital zoom digital camera. That's 29x bigger than the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Nikon Coolpix B500 (4x) and 25.8x bigger than the Pentax X-5 (7.2x). 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.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III features smile detection, and so do the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5, but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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 Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5), whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 do 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.

4 Times Higher Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, however the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 only has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 have a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is have. More ...

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

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

466g Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III has a weight of 770g, whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is is a 304g digital camera (466g 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 Pentax X-5 is a 507g digital camera (263g 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.

Not Waterproof

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is not waterproof (As does the the Nikon Coolpix B500), whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III does not have a GPS (As does the the Kodak Pixpro AZ422), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 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 is a digital camera that takes 340 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot sx430 is. 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 Kodak Pixpro AZ422 and the Pentax X-5), however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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 for Sports Photography

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is worse for sports photography than the Nikon Coolpix B500 and Pentax X-5. 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 Pentax X-5. 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 sx430 is, Nikon Coolpix B500 and Pentax X-5. 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 and Pentax X-5. 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 £119.90 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro AZ422

Smile Detection

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 features smile detection (as do the Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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.

HDMI

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has an HDMI, and so do the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Pentax X-5 do 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.

Built-in Flash

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon Coolpix B500, the Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is does not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro AZ422

140g Heavier

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is a 444g digital camera. That's 140g heavier than the Canon PowerShot sx430 is (304g), 98g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix B500 (542g), 63g lighter than the Pentax X-5 (507g) 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.

0.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a megapixels of 20MP (as does the Canon PowerShot sx430 is), however the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 are both 16MP digital cameras (4MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III is a 20.2MP digital camera (0.2MP 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 Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5, which is half as big image sensor size as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (1/1 to 1/1.5"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

4 Times Lower 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). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a digital zoom of 4x (as does the Nikon Coolpix B500), but the Pentax X-5 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (3.2x 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is only 3,200 maximum ISO speed, but the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 are both 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (3,200 higher) 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.

9 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, which is half as high video resolution as the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 (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). We do not know what type of maximum video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is 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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro AZ422 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Pentax X-5. Whereas the best video resolution supported by 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). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot sx430 is support. 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.

67.3MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has an internal memory of 8MB, however the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 20MB internal memory digital camera (12MB bigger) and the Pentax X-5 is a 75.3MB internal memory digital camera (67.3MB 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.

768,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro AZ422 has a display resolution of 460,000 Pixels, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels higher) 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), but the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Nikon Coolpix B500 and the Pentax X-5 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 is a digital camera that takes 200 battery life, whereas the Nikon Coolpix B500 only takes 600 Shots battery life, the Pentax X-5 only takes 330 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III only takes 340 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon PowerShot sx430 is. 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 (As does the the Pentax X-5), whereas the Canon PowerShot sx430 is, the Nikon Coolpix B500 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 Pentax X-5 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III), however the Canon PowerShot sx430 is and the Nikon Coolpix B500 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.
