6 Reasons For for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ53

Smile Detection

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 features smile detection, however the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

Better Kagoo Score

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Nikon D3S scored 82, the Olympus PEN EPL8 scored 83, the Polaroid IE826 scored only 77 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 scored 82.

Has a Better Price

On average reviewers thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a better price.

Easier to Use

Our analysis of the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 was easier to use. More than 60 people thought that it was really easy to use.

Has Better Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has better technical features. Over 30 people thought that it had very good features.

Took Good Pictures

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 took good pictures. Over 20 people thought that it had a brilliant picture quality and was very able to produce good images.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Kodak Pixpro FZ53

1% Heavier

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 106g digital camera. That's 1.1kg lighter than the Nikon D3S (1.2kg), 220g lighter than the Olympus PEN EPL8 (326g), 1g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (105g) and 14g lighter than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (120g). 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.

4MP Lower Megapixels

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a megapixels of 16MP, whereas the Nikon D3S is a 12.1MP digital camera (3.9MP lower), the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 16.1MP digital camera (0.1MP higher), the Polaroid IE826 is an 18MP digital camera (2MP higher) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 20MP digital camera (4MP 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 Big Image Sensor Size

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Praktica Luxmedia Z250, which is half as big image sensor size as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (4/3"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 10 times lower still image resolution as the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (5152 x 3864). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Polaroid IE826 support. More ...

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

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

25% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a digital zoom of 6x, however the Nikon D3S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (5x smaller), the Polaroid IE826 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is an 8x 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1,600, however the Nikon D3S is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (11,200 higher), the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (24,000 higher), the Polaroid IE826 is a 400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,200 lower) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 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.

Lower Video Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250, which is half as high video resolution as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (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 Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250. But the best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN EPL8 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). More ...

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 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.

56MB Smaller Internal Memory

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has an internal memory of 8MB, whereas the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 64MB internal memory digital camera (56MB 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.

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 2.7" screen digital camera (as does the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), whereas the Nikon D3S and the Olympus PEN EPL8 are both 3" screen digital cameras (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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has a display resolution of 230,000 Pixels, but the Nikon D3S is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (691,000 pixels higher) and the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 1,037,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (807,000 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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), whereas the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

150 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is 200 (as does the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), but the Olympus PEN EPL8 only takes 350 Shots 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 Support Wi-Fi

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), but the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 support this feature. More ...

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), whereas the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 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.

£24 More Expensive

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is more expensive than the Nikon D3S by £24, more expensive than the Olympus PEN EPL8 by £15 and more expensive than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 by £15.

Less Retailers

Only 4 retailers sells the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, whereas 19 stores sell the Praktica Luxmedia Z250. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Lower User Review Score

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53's average user rating is 88%, however the Nikon D3S's is 97% (based on 7 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The Kodak Pixpro FZ53's average overall rating is 88%, however the Nikon D3S's is 97% (based on 69 reviews).

Worse Brand

Kodak digital cameras have an average rating of only 86.6%, whereas Nikon has an average rating of 91.6%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Pixpro FZ53 in the UK is £45.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Olympus PEN EPL8

Twice As Big Image Sensor Size

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has a 4/3" (4/3)" image sensor size, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 have a 1/2 to 1/2.5" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Dustproof

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is a dustproof digital camera, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Full HD Video

The Olympus PEN EPL8 supports Full HD video (as does the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Higher Video Resolution

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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.

Twice As High Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN EPL8 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is 1280 x 720 pixels (half as high video resolution) and the Nikon D3S is 640 x 424 pixels (8 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Olympus PEN EPL8 also supports a 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution.

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

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

Larger Display Diagonal

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 3" screen digital camera, and so does the Nikon D3S. That's 0.3" larger than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (2.7"). 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.

Touchscreen

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has a touchscreen, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not. 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.

HDMI

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has an HDMI (as does the Nikon D3S), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

3D

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 3D digital camera, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Wi-Fi

The Olympus PEN EPL8 supports Wi-Fi, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Built-in Flash

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has a built-in flash, and so do the Nikon D3S, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 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.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Olympus PEN EPL8

A Lot Heavier

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has a weight of 326g, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 106g digital camera (220g lighter), the Nikon D3S is a 1.2kg digital camera (914g heavier), the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (221g lighter) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 120g digital camera (206g 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.

3.9MP Lower Megapixels

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 16.1MP digital camera. That's 0.1MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (16MP), 4MP higher than the Nikon D3S (12.1MP), 1.9MP lower than the Polaroid IE826 (18MP) and 3.9MP lower than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (20MP). 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 Olympus PEN EPL8 supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Polaroid IE826 support. More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is not waterproof (As does the the Polaroid IE826), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 scored 88.

More Expensive by £9

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is £9 more expensive than the Nikon D3S.

Less Retailers

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is only stocked by 4 retailers, whereas the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is stocked by 19 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
Older by Over Two Years

The Olympus PEN EPL8 is two years older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53.

14 Less Awards

The Olympus PEN EPL8 has only received 2 awards, whereas the Nikon D3S has received 16 awards.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Praktica Luxmedia Z250

A Lot Higher Megapixels

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a megapixels of 20MP, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Olympus PEN EPL8 are both only 16.1MP digital cameras (3.9MP lower), the Nikon D3S is only a 12.1MP digital camera (7.9MP lower) and the Polaroid IE826 is only an 18MP digital camera (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.

10 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 supports a still image resolution of 5152 x 3864, which is 10 times higher still image resolution as the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)) and 16 times higher still image resolution as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (1280 x 960). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Polaroid IE826 support. More ...

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

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

7x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a digital zoom of 8x, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is only a 6x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller), the Nikon D3S is only a 1x digital zoom digital camera (7x smaller) and the Polaroid IE826 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (4x 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.

Full HD Video

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 supports Full HD video, and so does the Olympus PEN EPL8, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826 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.

A Lot Bigger Internal Memory

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has an internal memory of 64MB, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is only an 8MB internal memory digital camera (56MB smaller). 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 Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826), however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 does not have this feature. More ...

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

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

More Shops Are Selling it

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

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Praktica Luxmedia Z250

15g Heavier

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 120g digital camera. That's 14g heavier than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (106g), 1.1kg lighter than the Nikon D3S (1.2kg), 206g lighter than the Olympus PEN EPL8 (326g) and 15g heavier than the Polaroid IE826 (105g). 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.

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

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so is the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, which is half as big image sensor size as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (4/3"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is only 6,400 maximum ISO speed, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (4,800 lower), the Nikon D3S is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 higher), the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (19,200 higher) and the Polaroid IE826 is a 400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,000 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.

Half As High Video Resolution

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Polaroid IE826, which is half as high video resolution as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (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.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Polaroid IE826. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN EPL8 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high video resolution). More ...

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 also supports a 640 x 480 pixels video resolution.

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

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

0.3" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has a display diagonal of 2.7" (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ53), however the Nikon D3S and the Olympus PEN EPL8 are both 3" screen digital cameras (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.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 does not have an HDMI (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ53), however the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

150 Less Battery Life

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a digital camera that takes 200 battery life (as does the Kodak Pixpro FZ53), whereas the Olympus PEN EPL8 only takes 350 Shots 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 Support Wi-Fi

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ53), whereas the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 support this feature. More ...

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

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

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Kodak Pixpro FZ53), however the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Polaroid IE826 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 Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 scored 88 and the Olympus PEN EPL8 scored 83.

£9 More Expensive

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is more expensive than the Nikon D3S by £9.

Over Three Years Older

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 by three years and older than the Olympus PEN EPL8 by 13 months.

Less Popular

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

A Lot Lower User Review Score

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has an average user rating of 80%, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has an average user rating of 88% (based on 95 reviews), the Nikon D3S has an average user rating of 97% (based on 7 reviews) and the Polaroid IE826 has an average user rating of 86% (based on 262 reviews).

A Lot Lower Overall Review Score

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has an average overall rating of 80%, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has an average overall rating of 88% (based on 96 reviews), the Nikon D3S has an average overall rating of 97% (based on 69 reviews) and the Polaroid IE826 has an average overall rating of 86% (based on 263 reviews).

Worse Brand

Praktica digital cameras have an average rating of only 77.7%, however Kodak has an average rating of 86.6%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.6%, Olympus has an average rating of 82.6% and Polaroid has an average rating of 82.7%.

Took Good Quality Pictures

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 reviewers thought the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 took good quality pictures.

Worse for Sports Photography

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is worse for sports photography than the Olympus PEN EPL8. 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 Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is worse for wildlife photography than the Olympus PEN EPL8. 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 Everyday Photography

The Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is worse for everyday photography than the Olympus PEN EPL8. More ...

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

The cheapest price that we could find for the Luxmedia Z250 in the UK is £30.00 and in total we found 19 prices for it.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3S

Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D3S is a 3" screen digital camera, and so does the Olympus PEN EPL8. That's 0.3" larger than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (2.7"). 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.

HDMI

The Nikon D3S has an HDMI (as does the Olympus PEN EPL8), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Multi Burst Mode

The Nikon D3S features multi burst mode, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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.

Bluetooth

The Nikon D3S features bluetooth, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 do not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

Built-in Flash

The Nikon D3S has a built-in flash, and so do the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 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.

Cheaper by £9

The Nikon D3S costs £23.76 less than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, costs £8.75 less than the Olympus PEN EPL8 and costs £8.76 less than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250.

16 More Awards

The Nikon D3S has received 16 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has received no awards, the Olympus PEN EPL8 has received 2 awards, the Polaroid IE826 has received no awards and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has received no awards.

Much Better Expert Reviews

The Nikon D3S has an average expert review score of 92% based on 62 reviews, however the Olympus PEN EPL8 has an average rating of 79% (based on 23 reviews).

Better User Reviews

The Nikon D3S has an average user review score of 97% based on 7 reviews, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 has an average rating of 88% (based on 95 reviews), the Polaroid IE826 has an average rating of 86% (based on 262 reviews) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 has an average rating of 80% (based on 27 reviews).

6 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Photoreview.com.au, PhotographyBlog.com, 01net.com, Letsgodigital.org/nl/, Digitalfotoforalla.se and Chip.de all gave the Nikon D3S a better review score. More ...

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3S

Heavier

The Nikon D3S has a weight of 1.2kg, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 106g digital camera (1.1kg lighter), the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 326g digital camera (914g lighter), the Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera (1.1kg lighter) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 120g digital camera (1.1kg 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.

40% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D3S is a 12.1MP digital camera. That's 4MP lower than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Olympus PEN EPL8 (16.1MP), 5.9MP lower than the Polaroid IE826 (18MP) and 7.9MP lower than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (20MP). 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 Digital Zoom

The Nikon D3S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera. That's 5x smaller than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (6x), 3x smaller than the Polaroid IE826 (4x) and 7x smaller than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (8x). More ...

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

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

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon D3S has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12,800. That's 11,200 higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (1,600), 12,800 lower than the Olympus PEN EPL8 (25,600), 12,400 higher than the Polaroid IE826 (400) and 6,400 higher than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (6,400). More ...

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

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

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon D3S does not support Full HD video, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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 Nikon D3S has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), whereas the Olympus PEN EPL8 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.

8 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon D3S is 640 x 424 pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is 1280 x 720 pixels (3 times higher video resolution) and the Olympus PEN EPL8 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (8 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Nikon D3S also supports a 320 x 216 pixels video resolution.

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

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

Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3S is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 691,000 pixels higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (230,000 Pixels) and 116,000 pixels lower than the Olympus PEN EPL8 (1,037,000 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D3S does not have a GPS, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Olympus PEN EPL8, the Polaroid IE826 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D3S has received a Kagoo Score of 82, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 scored 88 and the Olympus PEN EPL8 scored 83.

Less Retailers

The Nikon D3S is only stocked by 1 seller, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is stocked by 4 shops, the Olympus PEN EPL8 is stocked by 4 retailers and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is stocked by 19 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.
Older by Over Nine Years

The Nikon D3S is nine years older than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, seven years older than the Olympus PEN EPL8, four years older than the Polaroid IE826 and six years older than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250.

Has a Worse Price

The Nikon D3S reviewers thought the Nikon D3S has a worse price.

Produces Worse Quality Photos

Our analysis of the Nikon D3S reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Nikon D3S produces worse quality photos.

The cheapest price that we could find for the D3S in the UK is £21.24 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

Lighter

The Polaroid IE826 is a 105g digital camera. That's 1g lighter than the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (106g), 1.1kg lighter than the Nikon D3S (1.2kg), 221g lighter than the Olympus PEN EPL8 (326g) and 15g lighter than the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 (120g). 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.

Built-in Flash

The Polaroid IE826 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon D3S, the Olympus PEN EPL8 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250), whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 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.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid IE826

A Bit Lower Megapixels

The Polaroid IE826 has a megapixels of 18MP, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Olympus PEN EPL8 are both 16.1MP digital cameras (1.9MP lower), the Nikon D3S is a 12.1MP digital camera (5.9MP lower) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 20MP digital camera (2MP higher). More ...

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

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

Not Waterproof

The Polaroid IE826 is not waterproof (As does the the Olympus PEN EPL8), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 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.

4x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Polaroid IE826 has a digital zoom of 4x, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 6x digital zoom digital camera (2x bigger), the Nikon D3S is a 1x digital zoom digital camera (3x smaller) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is an 8x digital zoom digital camera (4x 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 400, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 is a 1,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (1,200 higher), the Nikon D3S is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,400 higher), the Olympus PEN EPL8 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (25,200 higher) and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,000 higher). More ...

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

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

Lower Video Resolution

The Polaroid IE826 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Kodak Pixpro FZ53, the Nikon D3S and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250, which is half as high video resolution as the Olympus PEN EPL8 (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 Polaroid IE826 is 1280 x 720 pixels pixels which is also supported by the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250. But the best video resolution supported by the Olympus PEN EPL8 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (twice as high 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.

240 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Polaroid IE826 is 110, but the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 only takes 200 Shots battery life and the Olympus PEN EPL8 only takes 350 Shots 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Polaroid IE826 has only received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 scored 88, the Nikon D3S scored 82, the Olympus PEN EPL8 scored 83 and the Praktica Luxmedia Z250 scored 82.
