17 Reasons For

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on similar spec cameras that have been around 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Samsung SAMSUNG ST200F which has better reviews.
