CCD Sensor Type

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Samsung 90[plb_1216_price], the Lexibook DJ028[plb_1876237_price], and the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Video[plb_1829794_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

The average digital zoom of cameras that were released more than two years ago is 10x, and the digital zooms range from 1x to 810x.

We compared all the other 20x digital zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-H70R[plb_580917_price] is also worth considering.

If this camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DSC-W730[pl_2083671_price] (32x), the DSC-WX80[pl_1621797_price] (32x), or the DSC-W830[pl_2109578_price] (32x) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.
