We compared this camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price], and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40[plb_1786919_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this digital camera and we think the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5[plb_1900903_price], the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price], and the Canon IXUS 145[plb_2166060_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
