CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

At 10 times zoom factor, the Sony DSC-W620 has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other compact cameras that were launched more than two years ago.

If this Sony digital camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the Rollei Compactline 750 (12x and higher rated), the Samsung SAMSUNG ST200F (14.4x and higher rated), or the Sony DSC-WX50 (20x and higher rated).
