11 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact cameras that are a comparable age 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 all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Canon IXUS 175[plb_3191143_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
