SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on bridge camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including the Coolpix P530 (£163.99), or the Coolpix P530 (£163.99) both from Nikon which is cheaper.

MOS Sensor Type

The Fujifilm FinePix S1 has a MOS sensor type which is better than the CCD sensor type found on most similar spec digital cameras that came out around the same time as it.

Alternative digital cameras that have a CMOS sensor currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper digital cameras such as the Nikon Coolpix P530 (£163.99).
