This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to it.

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

When compared to other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the DSC-W810 that we have assessed the digital zoom of, the DSC-W810's digital zoom of 48 times zoom factor is one of the biggest. The smallest digital zoom of compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to the DSC-W810 is 1x and the biggest is 810x.
