The Pixpro AZ422 has a better sensor type than most new bridge digital cameras. This Kodak camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most comparable spec cameras that have been around for around the same time as it have a MOS sensor type. 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.
This camera's sensor type (CCD) is in fact the best sensor type across all bridge digital cameras that came out around the same time as the Pixpro AZ422.
A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type across comparable types of camera.
