27 Reasons For

Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Nikon is one of the better rated digital camera brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Nikon also has good reviews for its compact cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact cameras that have been on the market 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.

Cameras with a better memory card type that might also be worth considering include the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Panasonic DMC-TZ55[plb_2145740_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

We compared all the other 26x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L320[plb_1939468_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-HX60V[plb_2166574_price] (30x), the Nikon Coolpix S9700[plb_2173237_price] (30x), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ61[plb_2226969_price] (30x) which also has a higher rating.

If this compact camera camera megapixel is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Kodak Pixpro FZ41[plb_3227932_price] (16.15MP and higher rated), the Sony DSC-WX50[plb_2154757_price] (16.2MP and higher rated), or the Leica X2[plb_2496546_price] (16.2MP and higher rated).
