14 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Nikon cameras and also specifically for Nikon compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Nikon had good reviews.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many similar spec digital cameras that were released 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.

There are a number of other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Samsung MV800.
