14 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on similar spec 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.

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Powerflex 240 HD has one of the larger display diagonals amongst compact cameras of this age. The display diagonals of digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the Powerflex 240 HD range from 1" to 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.8".

There are a number of other 3" screen cameras currently available which you might want to look at including the Casio EX-ZR300 which has better reviews.

If this Rollei camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 (4.8"), or the GC100 (£259.74) (4.8") both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.
