18 Reasons For

Samsung Cameras Have Good Reviews

On average Samsung compact camera digital cameras have good ratings as do all digital cameras produced by Samsung.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras of this type 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerShot S200 IS[pl_2685824_price], or the IXUS 162[pl_3019700_price] both from Canon.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the DV180F which do not support WiFi connectivity, the Samsung DV180F supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which support WiFi connectivity to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerShot S200 IS[pl_2685824_price], and the PowerShot SX710 HS[pl_2697183_price] both from Canon or the Sony DSC-HX90V[plb_2841480_price] is also worth considering.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The Samsung DV180F has an image stabiliser, as do most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released more than a year ago.

There are a number of other digital cameras with an image stabiliser currently available that you might also want to consider including the PowerShot S200 IS[pl_2685824_price], the PowerShot SX610 HS[pl_2697182_price], or the PowerShot SX710 HS[pl_2697183_price] all from Canon which has better reviews.

We compared this camera to all the other 5x digital zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Medion Life X44038[plb_2972533_price], and the Samsung WB380F[plb_2720523_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the Medion Life P44022[plb_3109377_price] (8x), or the Sony DSC-W830[plb_3766520_price] (32x) which also has a higher rating.
