17 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

18% Higher Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a megapixels of 20.3MP (as does the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), however the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 are both only 16MP digital cameras (4.3MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is only a 20.2MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

Twice As High Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 2736 x 2736, which is 4 times higher still image resolution as the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)), 4 times higher still image resolution as the Nikon Coolpix B600 (1600 x 1200) and twice as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1920 x 1920). More ...

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

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

Higher Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, and so is the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, whereas the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 have a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 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 (as do the Kodak AZ401, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100), but the Nikon Coolpix B600 does 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.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a GPS (as does the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), however the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do not 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features multi burst mode, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, whereas the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 do not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Nikon Coolpix B600, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, but the Kodak AZ401 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.

Bluetooth

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features bluetooth, and so do the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, whereas the Kodak AZ401 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do not. 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 Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100), however the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 do 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 90, but the Kodak AZ401 scored 84, the Nikon Coolpix B600 scored 86, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 scored 86 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 scored 82.

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.

More Customers Recommend it

70.4% of 665 customers recommend the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, however only 10% of 10 customers recommend the Nikon Coolpix B600 and only 20.9% of 139 customers recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Kodak only has an average rating of 86.6%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.6%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 92.2% and Sony only has an average rating of 90.9%.

Better Dkamera.de Review Score

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a review score of 90% from Dkamera.de, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 only has a rating of 80% from the same site.

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was easier to use. Over 100 people thought that it was really easy to use and several people thought that it also had good controls, was comfortable and easy to hold and was really easy to setup.

Recorded Good Videos

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS recorded good videos. More than 20 people thought that it was good for video recording.

22 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 276g digital camera. That's 160g lighter than the Kodak AZ401 (436g), 224g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix B600 (500g), 382g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (658g) and 22g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (254g). 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 Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600, which is half as big image sensor size as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1/1 to 1/1.5"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 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.

50x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a digital zoom of 4x (as do the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), but the Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 54x digital zoom digital camera (50x 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

Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is only 3,200 maximum ISO speed (as does the Kodak AZ401), but the Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (3,200 higher) and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (22,400 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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (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.

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

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon Coolpix B600 support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS also supports 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.

306,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a display resolution of 922,000 Pixels, whereas the Kodak AZ401 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (462,000 pixels lower), the Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (118,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (306,800 pixels higher). More ...

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

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix B600

A Lot Bigger Internal Memory

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has an internal memory of 83MB, however the Kodak AZ401 is only an 8MB internal memory digital camera (75MB 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.

Wi-Fi

The Nikon Coolpix B600 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, but the Kodak AZ401 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.

Bluetooth

The Nikon Coolpix B600 features bluetooth, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, whereas the Kodak AZ401 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do not. 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 B600 has a built-in flash (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100), however the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 do 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.

Nine Months Newer

The Nikon Coolpix B600 was released nine months ago, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was released three years ago, the Kodak AZ401 was released 22 months ago, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 was released 18 months ago and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 was released six years ago

User Reviews Are Better

The average user review score of the Nikon Coolpix B600 is 100% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is 92% (based on 573 reviews), the average rating of the Kodak AZ401 is 72% (based on 67 reviews), the average rating of the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is 94% (based on 27 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is 94% (based on 40 reviews).

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon Coolpix B600

Heavier

The Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 500g digital camera. That's 224g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (276g), 64g heavier than the Kodak AZ401 (436g), 158g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (658g) and 246g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (254g). 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.

22% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a megapixels of 16MP, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 are all 20.2MP digital cameras (4.2MP higher) and the Kodak AZ401 is a 16.15MP digital camera (0.15MP 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.

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

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Kodak AZ401, which is half as big image sensor size as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1/1 to 1/1.5"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 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.

4 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B600 supports a still image resolution of 1600 x 1200, which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (2736 x 2736) and half as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1920 x 1920). More ...

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

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

Lower Image Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels pixels, and so is the Kodak AZ401, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 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.

52x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a digital zoom of 2x, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 are all 4x digital zoom digital cameras (2x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 54x digital zoom digital camera (52x 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

Nikon Coolpix B600 is only 6,400 maximum ISO speed, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Kodak AZ401 are both 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (3,200 lower) and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 are both 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (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.

307,800 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has a display resolution of 921,000 Pixels, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 922,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,000 pixels higher), the Kodak AZ401 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (461,000 pixels lower), the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (307,800 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.

Only 2 USB Version

The Nikon Coolpix B600 supports a 2 USB version, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, which is half as new USB version as the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (3). 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.

610 Less Battery Life

The Nikon Coolpix B600 is a digital camera that takes 280 battery life (as does the Kodak AZ401), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 only takes 890 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 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 Nikon Coolpix B600 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS scored 90.

£74 More Expensive

The Nikon Coolpix B600 is more expensive than the Kodak AZ401 by £74.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 11 retailers sells the Nikon Coolpix B600, however 31 shops sell the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Less Popular

The Nikon Coolpix B600 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

A Lot Lower Expert Review Score

The Nikon Coolpix B600 only has an average expert rating of 74%, but the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an average expert rating of 81% (based on 27 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 95 reviews) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 has an average expert rating of 88% (based on 99 reviews).

Worse Brand

Nikon digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95% and Panasonic has an average rating of 92.2%.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

20 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

Higher Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a megapixels of 20.3MP (as does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), but the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 are both only 16MP digital cameras (4.3MP lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is only a 20.2MP digital camera (0.1MP 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.

Higher Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels, and so is the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, however the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 have a maximum image resolution of 4608 x 3456 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 dustproof, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 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 a freezeproof digital camera, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 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 (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100), whereas the Nikon Coolpix B600 does 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.

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, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels) and 9 times higher video resolution as the Kodak AZ401 (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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution) and the Kodak AZ401 is 1280 x 720 pixels (9 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Nikon Coolpix B600 support. More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 also supports a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 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.

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a touchscreen, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 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.

Newer USB Version

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a 3 USB version, which is twice as new USB version as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (2). 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 (as does the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS), but the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do not 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.

Multi Burst Mode

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 features multi burst mode, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, however the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 do not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

640 More Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 takes 890 battery life, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS only takes 250 Shots battery life, the Nikon Coolpix B600 only takes 280 Shots battery life and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 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.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, whereas the Kodak AZ401 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.

Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 features bluetooth, and so do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Nikon Coolpix B600, however the Kodak AZ401 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do not. 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.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

39% Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 658g digital camera. That's 382g heavier than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (276g), 222g heavier than the Kodak AZ401 (436g), 158g heavier than the Nikon Coolpix B600 (500g) and 404g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (254g). 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 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), and so does the Kodak AZ401, which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (2736 x 2736) and half as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (1920 x 1920). 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 (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100), however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 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.

Significantly Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a digital zoom of 4x (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and the Kodak AZ401), whereas the Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 54x digital zoom digital camera (50x 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 Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a display resolution of 1,040,000 Pixels, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 922,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (118,000 pixels lower), the Kodak AZ401 is a 460,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (580,000 pixels lower), the Nikon Coolpix B600 is a 921,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels lower) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (188,800 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 Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 does not have a built-in flash, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401, the Nikon Coolpix B600 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 do. 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 86, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS scored 90.

£830 More Expensive

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is more expensive than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS by £752, more expensive than the Kodak AZ401 by £830, more expensive than the Nikon Coolpix B600 by £756 and more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 by £637.

Fewer Sellers

Only 7 sellers sells the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, but 31 shops sell the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, 11 shops sell the Nikon Coolpix B600 and 9 shops sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. More ...

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

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is older than the Nikon Coolpix B600 by nine months.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has received 13 awards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 has received 16 awards.

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is 94%, whereas the average user rating of the Nikon Coolpix B600 is 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Panasonic digital cameras have an average rating of only 92.2%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100

Lighter

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 254g digital camera. That's 22g lighter than the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS (276g), 182g lighter than the Kodak AZ401 (436g), 246g lighter than the Nikon Coolpix B600 (500g) and 404g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (658g). 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.

Twice As Big Image Sensor Size

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 has an 1/1 to 1/1.5"" image sensor size, which is twice as big image sensor size as the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Nikon Coolpix B600 (1/2 to 1/2.5"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 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.

52x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 has a digital zoom of 54x, however the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 are all only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (50x smaller) and the Nikon Coolpix B600 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (52x 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.

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 features smile detection (as do the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, the Kodak AZ401 and the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), however the Nikon Coolpix B600 does 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.
