Display

Very Small Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of digital cameras of a similar age and spec to this digital camera is 2.7", the largest is 3.2", and the average display diagonal is 3". The Praktica Z212 has a fairly small display diagonal (only 2.7 inches) compared to most of the other high megapixel cameras that have been available for around the same time as this digital camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 2.7" screen digital cameras and we think the IXUS 175 (£90), and the Ixus 180 (£100) both from Canon which has better reviews; or the Canon IXUS 177 (£79.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
