14 Reasons For

Only Released Five Months Ago

Kodak only released the Pixpro FZ42 five months ago.

Kodak Has Good Camera Reviews

Kodak has only ok reviews for its compact camera digital cameras, however it has good average reviews when measured across its entire digital camera range.

Price Drop of £2.79

In the last week the Pixpro FZ42 has dropped in price by £2.79.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras that have been around for the last year. 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 camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
