Kodak Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

On average Kodak bridge camera digital cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all cameras built by Kodak.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on bridge camera digital 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 this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Fujifilm FinePix S4800[plb_1735658_price] which is cheaper; or the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price], and the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS[plb_1410250_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
