The EasyShare C1450 has a better sensor type than most digital cameras of a similar age and spec to it. This camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most cameras of this age and spec have a MOS sensor type. 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.
A CCD sensor type is in fact the best sensor type amongst all cameras that have been around for a similar time to the EasyShare C1450.
A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type amongst comparable types of camera.
