15 Reasons For

Good Brand

Canon compact camera digital cameras have good ratings on average and across all cameras Canon is one of the superior manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many comparable spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago. 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.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as 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 compact camera camera is too bad for you then you might want to look at 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) which also has a higher rating.
