13 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Canon is one of the better rated camera brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Canon also has good ratings for its compact camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on similar spec cameras that have been available for more than two years. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this digital camera and we think the GE J1455[plb_1773004_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an MMC|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this camera is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX350[plb_2163795_price] (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Nikon Coolpix S6800[plb_2118627_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
