20 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Camera Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Canon cameras and also specifically for Canon compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Canon had good ratings compared to other brands.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on cameras of a comparable spec and age to 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 compared this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Coolpix L120 ($225.00), and the Coolpix L320 both from Nikon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

This camera supports an MMC|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on digital cameras that were launched around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this compact camera digital camera is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($225.00) (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-W800 ($88.00) (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100 ($304.00) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
