Expert review site Steves-Digicams.com said in their Sony DSC-W810 review “An extremely budget-friendly point-and-shoot digicam Sony says is so great in low light shooting conditions, they decided to give it a "Party Mode."

Price Has Dropped by £13.46

The price of the DSC-W810 has dropped by £13.46 in the last 16 days.

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact cameras that came out around the same time as 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 cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerShot A4000, or the PowerShot G12 (£439.99) both from Canon or the Olympus VR-340 (£75.99).
