Nikon only released the A10 six months ago. Newer digital cameras like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

CCD Sensor Type

The Nikon A10 has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most compact camera digital cameras that have been around for the last year. 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 similar spec cameras that have been available for the last year.

A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type across similar types of camera.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Pixpro FZ43 ($75.00), and the Pixpro FZ42 both from Kodak or the Canon IXUS 180 is also worth considering.
