The EasyShare C1450 has a CCD sensor type which is better than most digital cameras of a similar spec and age to it. Most comparable spec cameras that were launched around the same time as it 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 actually the best sensor type amongst all digital cameras that are a similar age to the EasyShare C1450.
Amongst comparable types of camera the worst sensor type is MOS.
