MOS Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CMOS sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on digital cameras of a similar spec and age to it.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras that have a CMOS sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the EOS 700D - Rebel T5i[pl_1609405_price], and the EOS 760D - Rebel T6s[pl_2775914_price] both from Canon is also worth considering.
