15 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix W300

Waterproof

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is waterproof, and so is the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 are not. 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.

Higher Waterproof Up to

Nikon Coolpix W300 is 30 waterproof, but the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 is only a 20m waterproof digital camera (10m lower). More ...

The maximum depth that the manufacturer recommends taking the camera underwater.

A higher the maximum underwater depth allow you to use the camera for scuba diving as well as snorkelling.

Dustproof

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Shock Resistant

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a shock resistant, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 do not. More ...

A shock resistant digital camera is one that is protected against sudden shocks and knocks, such as from the camera being dropped or knocked out of your hand.

Having a shock resistant digital camera means that there is less chance of the camera being damaged or broken due to accidents.

Freezeproof

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is freezeproof, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 are not. More ...

Freezeproof denotes that the camera is capable of surviving extremely low temperatures before it stops working.

Full HD Video

The Nikon Coolpix W300 supports Full HD video (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), however the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 does 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 have 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon Coolpix W300 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Nikon Coolpix W300 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.

45% Bigger Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 473 internal memory digital camera. That's 377MB bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 (96MB). 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.

GPS

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a GPS, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, but the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 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.

Bluetooth

The Nikon Coolpix W300 features bluetooth (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

Built-in Flash

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, but the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 does not. More ...

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

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

Better Dkamera.de Review Score

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a Dkamera.de review score of 100%, but the rating of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was only 90% and the rating of the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 was only 80% from the same site.

A Better Size

On average reviewers thought the Nikon Coolpix W300 was a better size. Several people thought that it was compact, was really easy to carry around and was a good size.

Better for Video Capture

The Nikon Coolpix W300 reviewers thought the Nikon Coolpix W300 was better for video capture. More than 10 people thought that it was very good for video recording.

27 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix W300

15% Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a weight of 231, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 276g digital camera (45g heavier), the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 is a 190.6g digital camera (40.4g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 658g digital camera (427g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 209g digital camera (22g 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 16 digital camera. That's 4.3MP lower than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (20.3MP), 0.4MP lower than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 (16.4MP) and 2.2MP lower 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.

Only 1600 X 1200 Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix W300 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 2736 x 2736, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 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.

Only 4608 X 3456 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels (as is the Fujifilm FinePix XP130), however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 have a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 2 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP130. That's 2x smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (4x) and 118x 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.

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.

19,200 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 6 maximum ISO speed digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP130. That's 3,200 higher than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (3,200), 19,200 lower than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (25,600) and 6,400 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (12,800). 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.

Narrower Field of View

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 97 field of view digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm FinePix XP130. That's 3% narrower than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (100%). More ...

'Field of View' denotes the angles at which the display on a digital camera can be effectively viewed, and all the information clearly read.

Wider field of views mean that you can use the display at a greater variety of angles. Conversely a very small field of view means that you have to hold the device almost directly in front of you in order to view the display.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 921 display resolution digital camera. That's 1,000 pixels lower than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (922,000 Pixels), 1,000 pixels higher than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 (920,000 Pixels), 119,000 pixels lower than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (1,040,000 Pixels) and 600 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (921,600 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.

Older USB Version

The Nikon Coolpix W300 supports a 2 USB version (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a 3 USB version. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

Only 280 Battery Life

The Nikon Coolpix W300 takes 280 battery life, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 only takes 890 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Fujifilm FinePix XP130. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon Coolpix W300 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS scored 88 and the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 scored 86.

More Expensive by £110

The Nikon Coolpix W300 is £15 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, £110 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and £16 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500.

20 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

4.3MP Higher Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 20.3 digital camera, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS. That's 4.3MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300 (16MP) 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.

5184 X 3888 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels (as is the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), but the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300 have 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.

Dustproof

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300), but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Freezeproof

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is freezeproof, and so is the Nikon Coolpix W300, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 are not. More ...

Freezeproof denotes that the camera is capable of surviving extremely low temperatures before it stops working.

Smile Detection

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 features smile detection, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, however the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 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.

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports Full HD video (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Nikon Coolpix W300 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), but the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 does 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.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as is the Nikon Coolpix W300), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 have 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.

Wider Field of View

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 100 field of view digital camera. That's 3% wider than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300 (97%). 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.

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a touchscreen, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Twice As New USB Version

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a 3 USB version, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 support a 2 USB version. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a GPS, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Nikon Coolpix W300, whereas the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 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 Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 features multi burst mode (as does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), but the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 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.

890 Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is 890, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS only takes 250 battery life, the Nikon Coolpix W300 only takes 280 battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Fujifilm FinePix XP130. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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

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

Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 features bluetooth (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does 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.

13 More Awards

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has received 13 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has received 4 awards, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 has received 1 award, the Nikon Coolpix W300 has received 4 awards and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has received no awards.

Better Expert Reviews

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has an average expert review score of 90% based on 95 reviews, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an average rating of 81% (based on 27 reviews), the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 has an average rating of 73% (based on 10 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix W300 has an average rating of 76% (based on 21 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).

A Bit Better User Reviews

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has an average user review score of 94% based on 27 reviews, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an average rating of 92% (based on 573 reviews), the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 has an average rating of 88% (based on 290 reviews), the Nikon Coolpix W300 has an average rating of 86% (based on 154 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has an average rating of 93% (based on 3 reviews).

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

A Lot Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a weight of 658, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 276g digital camera (382g lighter), the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 is a 190.6g digital camera (467.4g lighter), the Nikon Coolpix W300 is a 231g digital camera (427g lighter) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 209g digital camera (449g 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 2736 x 2736 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.

Not Waterproof

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is not waterproof, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 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.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and the Nikon Coolpix W300 (2x) 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.

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 Have a Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 does not have a built-in flash, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, the Nikon Coolpix W300 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS scored 88 and the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 scored 86.

More Expensive by £713

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is £618 more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, £713 more expensive than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130, £603 more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix W300 and £619 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500.

Less Retailers

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is only stocked by 8 retailers, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is stocked by 31 stores and the Nikon Coolpix W300 is stocked by 9 stores. 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 Three Months

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is three months older than the Fujifilm FinePix XP130 and one month older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500.

Less Popular

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Worse Brand

Panasonic digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.9%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Worse Dkamera.de Review Score

Whilst the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has received a review score of 80% from Dkamera.de, the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS's rating was 90% and the Nikon Coolpix W300's rating was 100%.
