The Life E44050 has a better sensor type than most similar spec cameras that were released more than a year ago. This Medion camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most cameras of this spec and age 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 amongst all digital cameras of a comparable age and type to the Life E44050.
Amongst similar types of camera the worst sensor type is MOS.
