MOS Sensor Type

The Nikon Coolpix L610 has a MOS sensor type which is better than most digital cameras of this spec and age. Most compact camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as it have a CCD sensor type.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CMOS sensor to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the FinePix F660, and the X-Q1 ($215.00) both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix L820 ($284.00) is also worth considering.

If you want a digital camera with a better sensor type then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-H70 ($142.49) (CCD), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4 (CCD) which also has a higher rating.
