13 Reasons For

Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

Based on 19,122 expert and owner reviews, Nikon has good reviews for its cameras. Nikon also has good reviews specifically for its compact camera digital cameras compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Six Months Ago

The Coolpix A10 was only relased by Nikon six months ago. Newer digital cameras like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months. 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 all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price] is also worth considering.
