8 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon IXUS 117 HS

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5, whereas the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" 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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, and so is the Samsung ES17, which is twice as high image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (2592 x 1944 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.

Full HD Video

The Canon IXUS 117 HS supports Full HD video, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 do not. More ...

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

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

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, which is twice as high video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (1280 x 720 pixels) and 7 times higher video resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (640 x 480 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 Canon IXUS 117 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 support. More ...

The Canon IXUS 117 HS also supports 1280 x 720 pixels, 640 x 352 pixels and 320 x 240 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon IXUS 117 HS is 3 screen, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 are all only 2.5" screen digital cameras (0.5" smaller). More ...

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

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

5x Higher Maximum Playback Zoom

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a maximum playback zoom of 10, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is only a 5x maximum playback zoom digital camera (5x lower). 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, but Fujifilm only has an average rating of 87.8%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.6%, Samsung only has an average rating of 79% and Sony only has an average rating of 91.8%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon IXUS 117 HS

45% Heavier

The Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 581 digital camera. That's 468g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (113g), 461g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (120g), 460g heavier than the Samsung ES17 (121g) and 467g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (114g). 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a megapixels of 12.1, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 16MP digital camera (3.9MP higher), the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 are both 5.1MP digital cameras (7MP lower) and the Samsung ES17 is a 12.2MP digital camera (0.1MP higher). More ...

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

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

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon IXUS 117 HS supports a still image resolution of 1200 x 1200, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17 support a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). More ...

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

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

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a digital zoom of 4 (as does the Nikon Coolpix L3), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (3.2x bigger), the Samsung ES17 is a 12.5x digital zoom digital camera (8.5x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 6x digital zoom digital camera (2x 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.

400 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has a display resolution of 230 (as do the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17), however the Nikon Coolpix L3 is an 86,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (144,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 230,400 Pixels display resolution digital camera (400 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon IXUS 117 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 74, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 scored 76 and the Samsung ES17 scored 76.

£95 More Expensive

The Canon IXUS 117 HS is more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 by £95 and more expensive than the Samsung ES17 by £81.

Three Months Older

The Canon IXUS 117 HS is older than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 by three months.

The Canon IXUS 117 HS is 93.1mm wide, 55.8mm tall, 19.9mm deep and weighs 581g.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

35% Bigger Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 23 internal memory digital camera. That's 12MB bigger than the Samsung ES17 (11MB). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a built-in flash, and so do the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS 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.

A Bit Better User Reviews

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average user review score of 80% based on 11 reviews, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has an average rating of 70% (based on 27 reviews), the Samsung ES17 has an average rating of 76% (based on 10 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has an average rating of 60% (based on 1 review).

Produces Better Quality Pictures

On average reviewers thought the Nikon Coolpix L3 produces better quality pictures. More than 10 people thought that it was very able to produce good images.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

A Little Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a weight of 120, but the Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 581g digital camera (461g heavier), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 113g digital camera (7g lighter), the Samsung ES17 is a 121g digital camera (1g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 114g digital camera (6g 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.

69% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 5.1 digital camera, and so does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5. That's 7.1MP lower than the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17 (12.2MP) and 10.9MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (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.

Only 1/2.5 to 1/3" (1/2.5)" Image Sensor Size

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" (1/2.5)" image sensor size, however the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. More ...

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.

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a maximum image resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels pixels (as is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5), but the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17 have a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Canon IXUS 117 HS. That's 3.2x smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (7.2x), 8.5x smaller than the Samsung ES17 (12.5x) and 2x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (6x). More ...

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Fujifilm FinePix JX350

468g Lighter

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a weight of 113, but the Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 581g digital camera (468g heavier), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 120g digital camera (7g heavier), the Samsung ES17 is a 121g digital camera (8g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 114g digital camera (1g 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.

Higher Megapixels

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 16 digital camera. That's 3.8MP higher than the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17 (12.2MP) and 10.9MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (5.1MP). 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.

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

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5), however the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) (as does the Samsung ES17), whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS supports a still image resolution of 1200 x 1200, the Nikon Coolpix L3 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 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.

Built-in Flash

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a built-in flash, and so do the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS 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 Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, however the Canon IXUS 117 HS scored 74, the Nikon Coolpix L3 scored 70 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 scored 70.

Cheaper by £14

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 costs £94.97 less than the Canon IXUS 117 HS, costs £354.99 less than the Nikon Coolpix L3, costs £14 less than the Samsung ES17 and costs £304.99 less than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5.

Newer by Three Months

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 was released three months after the Canon IXUS 117 HS, released 17 months after the Nikon Coolpix L3, released two years after the Samsung ES17 and released 17 months after the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fujifilm FinePix JX350

43% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 7.2 digital zoom digital camera. That's 3.2x bigger than the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Nikon Coolpix L3 (4x), 5.3x smaller than the Samsung ES17 (12.5x) and 1.2x bigger than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (6x). More ...

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

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

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 does not support Full HD video, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 do. More ...

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

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

Lower Video Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon IXUS 117 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 support. More ...

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 also supports 640 x 480 pixels and 320 x 240 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.

10% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 2.7 screen digital camera. That's 0.3" smaller than the Canon IXUS 117 HS (3") and 0.2" larger than the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (2.5"). More ...

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

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

4% Narrower Field of View

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 96 field of view digital camera. That's 4% narrower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17. That's 144,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (86,000 Pixels) and 400 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (230,400 Pixels). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 does not have a GPS, however the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Samsung ES17 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 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 180 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 180, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 only takes 240 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Nikon Coolpix L3 or the Samsung ES17. It is possible that they do 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.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350's average expert score is only 60%, however the Nikon Coolpix L3's is 64% (based on 12 reviews), the Samsung ES17's is 72% (based on 1 review) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5's is 75% (based on 11 reviews).

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350's average user score is only 70%, however the Nikon Coolpix L3's is 80% (based on 11 reviews) and the Samsung ES17's is 76% (based on 10 reviews).

Worse Brand

Fujifilm digital cameras have an average rating of only 87.8%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.6% and Sony has an average rating of 91.8%.

Produces Worse Quality Photos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 produces worse quality photos.

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 94mm wide, 55.7mm tall, 23.7mm deep and weighs 0.113kg.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ES17

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

The Samsung ES17 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size (as are the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5), but the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" 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.

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Samsung ES17 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) (as does the Fujifilm FinePix JX350), however the Canon IXUS 117 HS supports a still image resolution of 1200 x 1200, the Nikon Coolpix L3 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 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.

4000 X 3000 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Samsung ES17 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels (as is the Canon IXUS 117 HS), whereas the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 have a maximum image resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. More ...

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.

Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung ES17 is a 12.5 digital zoom digital camera. That's 8.5x bigger than the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Nikon Coolpix L3 (4x), 5.3x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (7.2x) and 6.5x bigger than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (6x). More ...

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung ES17 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, but the Canon IXUS 117 HS scored 74, the Nikon Coolpix L3 scored 70 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 scored 70.

Moderately Better Overall Reviews

Based on 11 reviews, the Samsung ES17 has an average overall review score of 73%, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has an average rating of 63% (based on 29 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average rating of 69% (based on 23 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has an average rating of 70% (based on 12 reviews).

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ES17

A Bit Heavier

The Samsung ES17 has a weight of 121, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 581g digital camera (460g heavier), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 113g digital camera (8g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 120g digital camera (1g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 114g digital camera (7g 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.

24% Lower Megapixels

The Samsung ES17 is a 12.2 digital camera. That's 0.1MP higher than the Canon IXUS 117 HS (12.1MP), 3.8MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (16MP) and 7.1MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (5.1MP). 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.

7 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Samsung ES17 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as are the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5), however the Canon IXUS 117 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has 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.

53% Smaller Internal Memory

The Samsung ES17 is an 11 internal memory digital camera. That's 12MB smaller than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (23MB). 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.

17% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung ES17 has a display diagonal of 2.5, and so does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5. That's 0.5" smaller than the Canon IXUS 117 HS (3") and 0.5" larger than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Nikon Coolpix L3 (2"). More ...

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

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

64% Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung ES17 is a 230 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350. That's 144,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (86,000 Pixels) and 400 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 (230,400 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 £14

The Samsung ES17 is £14 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350.

Older by Over Two Years

The Samsung ES17 is two years older than the Canon IXUS 117 HS, two years older than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, 10 months older than the Nikon Coolpix L3 and 10 months older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5.

Expert Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Samsung ES17 only has an average expert score of 72%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has an average expert rating of 75% (based on 11 reviews).

User Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Samsung ES17 only has an average user score of 76%, but the Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average user rating of 80% (based on 11 reviews).

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T5

Bigger Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.4)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17, but the Nikon Coolpix L3 only has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" 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% Wider Field of View

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a field of view of 100, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is only a 96% field of view digital camera (4% narrower). 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 features multi burst mode, whereas the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17 do not. 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.

60 More Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a digital camera that takes 240 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 only takes 180 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Canon IXUS 117 HS, the Nikon Coolpix L3 or the Samsung ES17. It is possible that they do 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.

Built-in Flash

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a built-in flash (as do the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17), however the Canon IXUS 117 HS 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.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T5

Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is a 114 digital camera. That's 467g lighter than the Canon IXUS 117 HS (581g), 1g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (113g), 6g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (120g) and 7g lighter than the Samsung ES17 (121g). 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.

Vastly Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a megapixels of 5.1 (as does the Nikon Coolpix L3), however the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17 are both 12.2MP digital cameras (7.1MP higher) and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 16MP digital camera (10.9MP 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.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, which is half as high still image resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)). More ...

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

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

Lower Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a maximum image resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels pixels, and so is the Nikon Coolpix L3, which is half as high image resolution as the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Samsung ES17 (4000 x 3000 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.

6.5x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a digital zoom of 6, but the Canon IXUS 117 HS and the Nikon Coolpix L3 are both 4x digital zoom digital cameras (2x smaller), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (1.2x bigger) and the Samsung ES17 is a 12.5x digital zoom digital camera (6.5x 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.

7 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so are the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17, which is 7 times lower video resolution as the Canon IXUS 117 HS (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 3 times lower video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (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.

17% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a display diagonal of 2.5 (as does the Samsung ES17), however the Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 3" screen digital camera (0.5" larger) and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Nikon Coolpix L3 are both 2" screen digital cameras (0.5" smaller). More ...

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

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

A Lot Lower Maximum Playback Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has a maximum playback zoom of 5, but the Canon IXUS 117 HS is a 10x maximum playback zoom digital camera (5x 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.
