MOS Sensor Type

The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS has a MOS sensor type which is better than most cameras of this age and type. Most cameras that were released more than two years ago have a CCD sensor type.

If the sensor type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Olympus VR-340[plb_1686246_price] (CCD and cheaper) or the PowerShot G12[pl_1514037_price] (CCD and higher rated), or the 150[pl_2176458_price] (CCD and higher rated) both from Canon.
