4 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as 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 digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think a cheaper digital camera such as the Sony DSC-W810[plb_3150328_price] or you might consider a better rated digital camera such as the Canon IXUS 180[plb_3191140_price] are also worth considering.
