19 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We calculated the average reviews for all Canon cameras and also specifically for Canon compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Canon had good reviews.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an MMC|MMC+|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on compact camera digital cameras that have been available 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 you are looking for a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX350 (£159.00) (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 (£189.46) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
