Review: Canon Powershot G6 Digital Camera

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot G6

1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.8)" Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" (1/1.8)" image sensor size, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ES17 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size and 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.

Wider Field of View

The Canon PowerShot G6 is a 100 field of view digital camera. That's 4% wider than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (96%). 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.

300 Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot G6 is a digital camera that takes 300 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 only takes 180 battery life and the Ricoh CX6 only takes 260 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by 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.

Two More Awards

The Canon PowerShot G6 has received 2 awards from expert review sites, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has received no awards, the Nikon Coolpix L3 has received no awards and the Samsung ES17 has received no awards.

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 19 reviews, the Canon PowerShot G6 has an average expert review score of 80%, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has an average rating of 60% (based on 2 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average rating of 64% (based on 12 reviews), the Ricoh CX6 has an average rating of 75% (based on 20 reviews) and the Samsung ES17 has an average rating of 72% (based on 1 review).

Better Overall Reviews

Based on 26 reviews, the Canon PowerShot G6 has an average overall review score of 84%, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has an average rating of 63% (based on 29 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average rating of 74% (based on 15 reviews), the Ricoh CX6 has an average rating of 76% (based on 20 reviews) and the Samsung ES17 has an average rating of 73% (based on 11 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Fujifilm only has an average rating of 87.8%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.6%, Ricoh only has an average rating of 76.8% and Samsung only has an average rating of 80.5%.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

CNET.com, CNET.co.uk and Trusted Reviews all gave the Canon PowerShot G6 a better review score. More ...

CNET.com: Canon PowerShot G6 = 73% vs Nikon Coolpix L3 = 64%

CNET.co.uk: Canon PowerShot G6 = 73% vs Nikon Coolpix L3 = 64%

Trusted Reviews: Canon PowerShot G6 = 90% vs Ricoh CX6 = 70%
Took Good Quality Photos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot G6 took good quality photos. Several people thought that it was very able to produce good images, had a good picture resolution and picture quality.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot G6

A Lot Heavier

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a weight of 380, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 113g digital camera (267g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 120g digital camera (260g lighter), the Ricoh CX6 is a 180g digital camera (200g lighter) and the Samsung ES17 is a 121g digital camera (259g 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.

56% Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot G6 is a 7.1 digital camera. That's 8.9MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (16MP), 2MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (5.1MP), 2.9MP lower than the Ricoh CX6 (10MP) and 5.1MP lower than the Samsung ES17 (12.2MP). More ...

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

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

Only 1600 X 1200 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot G6 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, however 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.

Lower Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a maximum image resolution of 3072 x 2304 pixels pixels, whereas the Ricoh CX6 has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels and the Samsung ES17 has 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 Canon PowerShot G6 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L3. That's 3.2x smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (7.2x), 0.8x smaller than the Ricoh CX6 (4.8x) and 8.5x smaller than the Samsung ES17 (12.5x). 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.

A Lot Slower Flash Recharging Time

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a flash recharging time of 10, whereas the Samsung ES17 is a 5s flash recharging time digital camera (5s faster). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

3 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels (as are the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17), however the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Ricoh CX6 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.

20% Smaller Internal Memory

The Canon PowerShot G6 is a 32 internal memory digital camera. That's 9MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (23MB), 8MB smaller than the Ricoh CX6 (40MB) and 21MB 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot G6 has a display diagonal of 2, and so does the Nikon Coolpix L3. That's 0.5" smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17 (2.5") and 1" smaller than the Ricoh CX6 (3"). More ...

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

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

1,112,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot G6 is a 118 display resolution digital camera. That's 112,000 pixels lower than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17 (230,000 Pixels), 32,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (86,000 Pixels) and 1,112,000 pixels lower than the Ricoh CX6 (1,230,000 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon PowerShot G6 has received a Kagoo Score of 73, but the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 scored 76, the Ricoh CX6 scored 74 and the Samsung ES17 scored 76.

More Expensive by £550

The Canon PowerShot G6 is £550 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, £195 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix L3, £88 more expensive than the Ricoh CX6 and £536 more expensive than the Samsung ES17.

Older by Over One Year

The Canon PowerShot G6 is 13 months older than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and 13 months older than the Ricoh CX6.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Canon PowerShot G6 has an average user score of 89%, but the Nikon Coolpix L3 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 3 reviews).

The Canon PowerShot G6 is 104.9mm wide, 73.1mm tall, 72.8mm deep and weighs 380g.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

User Reviews Are a Little Better

Based on 3 reviews, the average user review score of the Nikon Coolpix L3 is 93%, whereas the average rating of the Canon PowerShot G6 is 89% (based on 7 reviews), the average rating of the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 70% (based on 27 reviews) and the average rating of the Samsung ES17 is 76% (based on 10 reviews).

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix L3

Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 120 digital camera. That's 260g lighter than the Canon PowerShot G6 (380g), 7g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (113g), 60g lighter than the Ricoh CX6 (180g) and 1g 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.

Hugely Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a megapixels of 5.1, but the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 7.1MP digital camera (2MP higher), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 16MP digital camera (10.9MP higher), the Ricoh CX6 is a 10MP digital camera (4.9MP higher) and the Samsung ES17 is a 12.2MP digital camera (7.1MP 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.

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a 1/2.5 to 1/3" (1/2.5)" image sensor size, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" image sensor size and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ES17 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. More ...

Only 640 X 480 Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L3 supports a still image resolution of 640 x 480, which is 6 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot G6 (1600 x 1200), 7 times lower still image resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)) and 4 times lower still image resolution as the Ricoh CX6 (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.

Half As High Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a maximum image resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels pixels, which is half as high image resolution as the Ricoh CX6 (3648 x 2736 pixels) and half as high image resolution as 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.

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.

8.5x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a digital zoom of 4 (as does the Canon PowerShot G6), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (3.2x bigger), the Ricoh CX6 is a 4.8x digital zoom digital camera (0.8x bigger) and the Samsung ES17 is a 12.5x digital zoom digital camera (8.5x bigger).

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix L3 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot G6 and the Samsung ES17, which is 3 times lower video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Ricoh CX6 (1280 x 720 pixels). More ...

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as is the Fujifilm FinePix JX350), whereas the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17 have a maximum video resolution of 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.

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.

1" Larger Display Diagonal

Two More Awards

The Ricoh CX6 has received 2 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has received no awards, the Nikon Coolpix L3 has received no awards and the Samsung ES17 has received no awards.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ricoh CX6

A Lot Heavier

The Ricoh CX6 has a weight of 180, but the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 380g digital camera (200g heavier), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 113g digital camera (67g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 120g digital camera (60g lighter) and the Samsung ES17 is a 121g digital camera (59g 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.

38% Lower Megapixels

The Ricoh CX6 is a 10 digital camera. That's 2.9MP higher than the Canon PowerShot G6 (7.1MP), 6MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (16MP), 4.9MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (5.1MP) and 2.2MP lower than the Samsung ES17 (12.2MP). More ...

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

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

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

The Ricoh CX6 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as are the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Samsung ES17), however the Canon PowerShot G6 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" 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 Ricoh CX6 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200 and 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.

Only 3648 X 2736 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Ricoh CX6 has a maximum image resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels pixels, but the Samsung ES17 has 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 Ricoh CX6 is a 4.8 digital zoom digital camera. That's 0.8x bigger than the Canon PowerShot G6 and the Nikon Coolpix L3 (4x), 2.4x smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (7.2x) and 7.7x smaller than the Samsung ES17 (12.5x). 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.

3 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Ricoh CX6 is 640 x 480 pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17 support. 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.

Only 260 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Ricoh CX6 is 260, but the Canon PowerShot G6 only takes 300 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by 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.

0.09kg Heavier

The Ricoh CX6 is a 0.2 heavy digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 0.11kg heavy digital camera (0.09kg lighter).

Worse Kagoo Score

The Ricoh CX6 has received a Kagoo Score of 74, however the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 scored 76 and the Samsung ES17 scored 76.

More Expensive by £462

The Ricoh CX6 is £462 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, £107 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix L3 and £448 more expensive than the Samsung ES17.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The Ricoh CX6's average expert score is only 75%, however the Canon PowerShot G6's is 80% (based on 19 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The Ricoh CX6's average overall score is only 76%, however the Canon PowerShot G6's is 84% (based on 26 reviews).

Worse Brand

Ricoh digital cameras have an average rating of only 76.8%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%, Fujifilm has an average rating of 87.8%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.6% and Samsung has an average rating of 80.5%.

Worse Trusted Reviews Review Score

The Ricoh CX6 has only received a Trusted Reviews review score of 70% , whereas the rating of the Canon PowerShot G6 was 90%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the CX6 in the UK is £506.72 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Fujifilm FinePix JX350

71% Lighter

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 113 digital camera. That's 267g lighter than the Canon PowerShot G6 (380g), 7g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (120g), 67g lighter than the Ricoh CX6 (180g) and 8g lighter than the Samsung ES17 (121g). More ...

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fujifilm FinePix JX350

Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ES17, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" 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.

A Lot Smaller Digital Zoom

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a digital zoom of 7.2, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Ricoh CX6 are all 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (2.4x smaller) and the Samsung ES17 is a 12.5x digital zoom digital camera (5.3x 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.

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, but the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ES17 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.

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is only 2.7 screen, but the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Samsung ES17 are all 2.5" screen digital cameras (0.2" smaller) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.3" larger). More ...

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

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

Moderately Narrower Field of View

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a field of view of 96, however the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 100% field of view digital camera (4% wider). 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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 has a display resolution of 230 (as does the Samsung ES17), however the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 118,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (112,000 pixels lower), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is an 86,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (144,000 pixels lower) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 1,230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000,000 pixels higher). More ...

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 does not have a GPS, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3, the Ricoh CX6 and the Samsung ES17 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.

120 Less Battery Life

The Fujifilm FinePix JX350 takes 180 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot G6 only takes 300 battery life and the Ricoh CX6 only takes 260 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by 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.

Significantly Lower Expert Review Score

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung ES17

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Samsung ES17 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), and so does the Fujifilm FinePix JX350, which is 7 times higher still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L3 (640 x 480) and twice as high still image resolution as the Ricoh CX6 (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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Samsung ES17 has a maximum image resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels pixels, which is twice as high image resolution as the Canon PowerShot G6 (3072 x 2304 pixels) and twice as high image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix L3 (2592 x 1944 pixels). More ...

8.5x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Samsung ES17 has a digital zoom of 12.5, however the Canon PowerShot G6, the Nikon Coolpix L3 and the Ricoh CX6 are all only 4.8x digital zoom digital cameras (7.7x smaller) and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is only a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera (5.3x 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.

Faster Flash Recharging Time

The Samsung ES17 is a 5 flash recharging time digital camera. That's 5s faster than the Canon PowerShot G6 (10s). More ...

'Flash Recharge Time' measures the amount of time needed for the flash to reach full power after a shot.

Faster flash recharge times allow you to use the flash sooner, meaning less time wasted between shots.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung ES17 has received a Kagoo Score of 76, however the Canon PowerShot G6 scored 73, the Nikon Coolpix L3 scored 72 and the Ricoh CX6 scored 74.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung ES17

Heavier

The Samsung ES17 is a 121 digital camera. That's 259g lighter than the Canon PowerShot G6 (380g), 8g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 (113g), 1g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix L3 (120g) and 59g lighter than the Ricoh CX6 (180g). More ...

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

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

3.8MP Lower Megapixels

The Samsung ES17 has a megapixels of 12.2, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 7.1MP digital camera (5.1MP lower), the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is a 16MP digital camera (3.8MP higher), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 5.1MP digital camera (7.1MP lower) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 10MP digital camera (2.2MP 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 Samsung ES17 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.33)" image sensor size, and so are the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Ricoh CX6, however the Canon PowerShot G6 has a 1/1.5 to 1/2" 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 Video Resolution

The Samsung ES17 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot G6 and the Nikon Coolpix L3, which is 3 times lower video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Ricoh CX6 (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.

Significantly Smaller Internal Memory

The Samsung ES17 has an internal memory of 11, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 32MB internal memory digital camera (21MB bigger), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is a 23MB internal memory digital camera (12MB bigger) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 40MB internal memory digital camera (29MB 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.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung ES17 is a 2.5 screen digital camera, whereas the Canon PowerShot G6, the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 and the Nikon Coolpix L3 are all 2" screen digital cameras (0.5" smaller) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 3" screen digital camera (0.5" larger). More ...

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

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

Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung ES17 has a display resolution of 230 (as does the Fujifilm FinePix JX350), but the Canon PowerShot G6 is a 118,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (112,000 pixels lower), the Nikon Coolpix L3 is an 86,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (144,000 pixels lower) and the Ricoh CX6 is a 1,230,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000,000 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.

£14 More Expensive

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

Over Two Years Older

The Samsung ES17 is older than the Canon PowerShot G6 by 14 months, older than the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 by two years, older than the Nikon Coolpix L3 by nine months and older than the Ricoh CX6 by two years.
