15 Reasons For

Samsung Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

Samsung compact camera digital cameras have good ratings on average and across all cameras Samsung is one of the better rated brands.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time 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 digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the GE J1455[plb_1773004_price] is also worth considering.
