has a built-in flash

The C (Typ 112) has a built-in flash, as do most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras with a built-in flash and we think the Coolpix 8800, and the P7700 both from Nikon which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

The C (Typ 112) supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other digital cameras of this age and spec do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other digital cameras which support Wi-Fi to this digital camera and we think the Nikon D3000 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm, the Panasonic DMC-FX90, and the Fujifilm XQ2 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

The C (Typ 112) has a fairly standard digital zoom (4 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar type and age to this digital camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 4x digital zoom cameras and we think the Canon S110 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 7.1 times zoom factor, the Leica C (Typ 112) has a fairly typical optical zoom compared to most of the other similar spec cameras that were released around the same time as this digital camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 7.1x optical zoom digital cameras currently available including the Nikon P7700, or the Panasonic DMC-LF1 which both of have better reviews.

Digital cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth looking at include the Lumix DMC-FZ330 (£427) (24x and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-FZ200 (£279.95) (24x and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Canon SX280 HS (20x and higher rated).

Display

Quite Small Display Diagonal

We compared this camera to all the other 2" screen cameras and we think because of its better review score, the Nikon Coolpix 5900 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Canon EOS 400D - Rebel XTi (2.5") which is also higher rated.
