CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on digital cameras of this spec and age. 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.

Other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4[plb_1353102_price], or the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS[plb_1463972_price].

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30[plb_1847857_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).

We compared all the other 12MP digital cameras to this camera and we think the FinePix X10[pl_1150_price], and the XQ1[pl_1962901_price] both from Fujifilm which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Cameras with a higher megapixel count that might be worth looking at include the PowerShot SX280 HS[pl_2126239_price] (12.1MP), or the PowerShot SX600 HS[pl_2110760_price] (16MP) both from Canon or the Nikon Coolpix L820[plb_2153075_price] (16MP).
