The FinePix S2995 has a better sensor type than most cameras of this type and age. This Fujifilm digital camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most similar spec digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to it have a MOS sensor type. 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.
This camera's sensor type (CCD) is in fact the best sensor type across all bridge camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the FinePix S2995.
A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type across similar types of camera.
We compared this camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Nikon 310[plb_1716915_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
