4 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Camera Reviews

Canon compact cameras have good ratings on average and across all digital cameras Canon is one of the better rated manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras that have been around for a comparable 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 camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Canon IXUS 175[plb_3191143_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has an Image Stabilizer

Like most of the other compact cameras that are a similar age to the IXUS 162, the IXUS 162 has an image stabilizer.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras with an image stabilizer currently available including because of it's better review score, the Coolpix P340[pl_2197142_price], or the Coolpix S6900[pl_2513006_price] both from Nikon or the Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS[plb_2976201_price].
