The Samsung 31F has a fairly typical weight (131 grams) compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

Display

Quite Large Display Diagonal

Across all the digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago the display diagonals range from 2" to 4.8". With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Samsung 31F has one of the larger display diagonals amongst medium megapixel digital cameras of this age.

There are a number of other 3" screen cameras currently available that you might also want to consider including the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the NEX-6Y (£934.39) both from Sony or the Samsung SAMSUNG DV300F which has better reviews.

If this Samsung digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Df (£2,039.00) (3.2"), the D4 (£4,689.00) (3.2"), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2") all from Nikon which also has a higher rating.

Lens System

Quite Big Digital Zoom

Across all the medium megapixel digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as this camera the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 5x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the 30F, the SAMSUNG MV900F, and the WB30F all from Samsung which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the A1455 (5.7x and higher rated), or the J1455 (5.7x and higher rated) both from GE or the Kodak Pixpro FZ41 (6x and higher rated).

If this Samsung digital camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Panasonic DMC-SZ8 (12x), the Rollei Powerflex 850 (12x), or the Nikon S6400 (£219.00) (12x) which is also higher rated.
