CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact cameras that came out 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.

With an optical zoom of only 4 times zoom factor, the IXUS 130 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar type and age to the IXUS 130.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 4x optical zoom digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm X10.

If you are looking for a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to consider the Panasonic DMC-TS5 (4.6x) which is also higher rated.
