13 Reasons For

Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Based on 19,074 expert and owner reviews, Nikon has good ratings for its digital cameras. Nikon also has good ratings specifically for its compact camera digital cameras compared to other brands.

Just Released Six Months Ago

This Nikon camera is one of the newest cameras to be released. As such it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

The Coolpix A10 has a CCD sensor type which is better than most comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most recently released 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 digital camera's sensor type (CCD) is actually the best sensor type amongst all digital cameras that came out in the last 12 months.

The worst sensor type amongst comparable types of digital camera is MOS.

We compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price] is also worth considering.
