13 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

Compact cameras manufactured by Sony have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just compact cameras) and found that Sony also has good reviews across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact cameras that have been available for more than two years. 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 digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix 5900[plb_2162_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a camera with a higher megapixel then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro FZ41[plb_3227932_price] (16.15MP), or the Samsung ST72[plb_1609451_price] (16.2MP) which also has a higher rating.
