The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS has a cmos sensor type.

The sensor type has a direct impact on the image quality of the digital camera. High end SLRs tend to use CCD sensors while compact cameras where battery life is a main concern usually use CMOS sensors.

While CCD sensors produce higher quality images with less image noise, they also consume more power. CMOS sensors are cheaper to manufacture and consume less energy although image quality is not as good as CCD sensors.
