Display

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Powerflex 850 has a relatively standard display diagonal compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been around for more than two years.

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the Nikon 320, and the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Duo are also worth considering.

Camera

Does Not Have a GPS (satellite)

The Rollei Powerflex 850 does not have a GPS (satellite), although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a GPS (satellite).

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have a GPS (satellite) including the 200, or the SAMSUNG WB850F both from Samsung or the Sony HX100V.

The Powerflex 850 has a relatively typical weight (191 grams) compared to most of the other digital cameras that were launched around the same time as this camera.

Lens System

Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 12 times zoom factor, the Powerflex 850 has a fairly typical optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel cameras that came out around the same time as this camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 12x optical zoom cameras and we think because of their better review scores, the S6800 (£189.46), and the S6400 (£219) both from Nikon are also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Olympus Stylus SH-2 (£273.09) (24x) which also has a higher rating.

Has an Image Stabilizer

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative cameras with an image stabilizer currently available including the Nikon L120, or the GE J1455 which both of have better reviews.
