3 Reasons For
CCD Sensor Type
The Praktica WP240 has a better sensor type than most comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for a similar time to it. This Praktica digital camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most cameras that were released one year ago 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.
A CCD sensor type is in fact the best sensor type across all cameras of this age and type.
A CMOS III sensor type is the worst sensor type across similar types of digital camera.
The Praktica WP240 is waterproof. Most of the other waterproof cameras that are a comparable age to the WP240 also are waterproof.
With a weight of only 162 grams, the Praktica WP240 is fairly light compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to the WP240. The average weight of similar spec cameras that were released around the same time as the WP240 is 330g.
