16 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on comparable spec digital cameras that were launched around the same time as 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Nikon Coolpix S5100[plb_1308_price], or the Samsung WB150F[plb_2060742_price] which has better reviews.

Good results with DC1400 pro set, though you need to practice with the flash as it is too bright on factory setting. Great service from the retailer in Germany...
