The Pixpro FZ152 has a better sensor type than most comparable spec digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to it. This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most new cameras 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.
This camera's sensor type (CCD) is in fact the best sensor type amongst all compact camera digital cameras that have been around for the last year.
A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type amongst similar types of camera.
There are a number of alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might want to look at including the Nikon S3700[plb_3851399_price] which is cheaper.
