3 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras of a similar type and age to it. 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 digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-W830[plb_3766520_price] is also worth considering.
