21 Reasons For

Good Brand

Samsung compact camera digital cameras have good reviews on average and across all cameras Samsung is one of the superior manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras of a similar spec 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Samsung ST90, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77, or the GE J1250 which has better reviews.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Samsung ST77 has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years. Digital cameras of this age and type have digital zooms of between 1x and 810x, and the average digital zoom is 12x.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 5x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including the WB150, the WB31F, or the DV300 all from Samsung which has better reviews.

If this compact camera camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the J1455 (5.7x), the A1455 (5.7x), or the C1033 (5.7x) all from GE which also has a higher rating.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, the GE J1250, and the Casio Exilim EX-ZR700 is also worth considering.
