4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX500

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports a still image resolution of 11520 x 1080, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (2736 x 2736) and 6 times higher still image resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 (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.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a digital zoom of 120, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 are both only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (116x smaller) and the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is only a 10x digital zoom digital camera (110x 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.

Wi-Fi

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90, whereas the Nikon D3500 does not. More ...

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

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

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS scored 88, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 scored 88, the Nikon D3500 scored 86 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 scored 88.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX500

9% Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 209 digital camera. That's 67g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (276g), 18.4g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 (190.6g), 156g lighter than the Nikon D3500 (365g) and 71g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 (280g). 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 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a megapixels of 18.2, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 are both 20.3MP digital cameras (2.1MP higher), the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a 16.4MP digital camera (1.8MP lower) and the Nikon D3500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (6MP 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 Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a maximum image resolution of 4896 x 3264 pixels pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 have a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 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.

12,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 12 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Fujifilm FinePix XP140), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 lower), the Nikon D3500 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 lower). More ...

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

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

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

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Nikon D3500, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

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

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

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Nikon D3500. However the best video resolution supported by the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a display resolution of 921, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 922,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (400 pixels higher), the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a 920,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,600 pixels lower), the Nikon D3500 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (600 pixels lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (118,400 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon D3500 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90), but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Nikon D3500 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.

£76 More Expensive

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS by £24 and more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 by £76.

Fewer Sellers

Only 6 retailers sells the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, but 29 sellers sell the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, 10 sellers sell the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, 16 retailers sell the Nikon D3500 and 11 stores sell the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Eight Months Older

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is older than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 by eight months and older than the Nikon D3500 by three months.

Less Popular

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

A Bit Lower Expert Review Score

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 88%, whereas the average user rating of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is 92% (based on 573 reviews) and the Nikon D3500 is 95% (based on 489 reviews).

Worse Brand

Sony digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.3%, but Canon has an average rating of 95% and Panasonic has an average rating of 91.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 in the UK is £200.00 and in total we found 6 prices for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90

Higher Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, and so is the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 only has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only has a maximum image resolution of 4896 x 3264 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Nikon D3500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Fujifilm FinePix XP140. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Nikon D3500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels, 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

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

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

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has a touchscreen, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, the Nikon D3500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, but the Nikon D3500 does not. More ...

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

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

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90

89.4g Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a 280 digital camera. That's 4g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (276g), 89.4g heavier than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 (190.6g), 85g lighter than the Nikon D3500 (365g) and 71g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (209g). 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.

17% Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has a megapixels of 20.3 (as does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), however the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a 16.4MP digital camera (3.9MP lower), the Nikon D3500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (3.9MP higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is an 18.2MP digital camera (2.1MP 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.

6 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (2736 x 2736), 6 times lower still image resolution as the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 (3456 x 3456) and 6 times lower still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (11520 x 1080). 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 Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is not waterproof (As does the the Nikon D3500), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has a digital zoom of 4 (as does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), but the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a 10x digital zoom digital camera (6x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 120x digital zoom digital camera (116x 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

Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is only 6 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 lower), the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 are both 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (6,400 higher) and the Nikon D3500 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (19,200 higher). More ...

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

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

Does Not Have a GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon D3500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 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.

20 Less Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a digital camera that takes 380 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 battery life. More ...

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Nikon D3500 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 scored 89.

£103 More Expensive

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS by £51, more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 by £103 and more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 by £27.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 11 sellers sells the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90, however 29 sellers sell the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and 16 sellers sell the Nikon D3500. More ...

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

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is older than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 by 17 months, older than the Nikon D3500 by one year and older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 by nine months.

Less Popular

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has received 3 awards, the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has received 4 awards.

Lower User Review Score

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has an average user rating of 88%, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an average user rating of 92% (based on 573 reviews) and the Nikon D3500 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 489 reviews).

Worse Brand

Panasonic digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.8%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Worse Techradar Review Score

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 was a worse size.

Harder to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 was harder to use.

Produces Worse Quality Photos

Our analysis of the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 produces worse quality photos.

Worse for Sports Photography

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is worse for sports photography than the Nikon D3500. 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 Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is worse for wildlife photography than the Nikon D3500. 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 Landscape Photography

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is worse for landscape photography than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and Fujifilm FinePix XP140. 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.

The Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is 112mm wide, 67.3mm tall, 41.2mm deep and weighs 280g.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

5184 X 3888 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels (as is the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 only has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only has a maximum image resolution of 4896 x 3264 pixels. More ...

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

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

Smile Detection

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features smile detection, but the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, the Nikon D3500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a GPS, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, the Nikon D3500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 do not. More ...

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

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

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features multi burst mode (as does the Nikon D3500), whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports Wi-Fi (as do the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), but the Nikon D3500 does 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 Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features bluetooth (as do the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 and the Nikon D3500), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Four More Awards

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has received 4 awards from expert review sites, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 has received no awards, the Nikon D3500 has received 3 awards, the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has received 3 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has received no awards.

A Little Better Overall Reviews

Based on 600 reviews, the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an average overall review score of 87%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has an average rating of 83% (based on 9 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Fujifilm only has an average rating of 88.2%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.3%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 91.8% and Sony only has an average rating of 91.3%.

25 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

85.4g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a weight of 276, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is a 190.6g digital camera (85.4g lighter), the Nikon D3500 is a 365g digital camera (89g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 is a 280g digital camera (4g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 209g digital camera (67g 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.

17% Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 20.3 digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90. That's 3.9MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 (16.4MP), 3.9MP lower than the Nikon D3500 (24.2MP) and 2.1MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (18.2MP). 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 High Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 2736 x 2736, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 supports a still image resolution of 3456 x 3456 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports a still image resolution of 11520 x 1080. 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 SX730 HS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90. That's 6x smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix XP140 (10x) and 116x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (120x). 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.

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.

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