17 Reasons For

Nikon Cameras Have Good Reviews

There are a number of alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available which you might want to look at including the Praktica Z212[plb_3496604_price] which is cheaper; or the Canon IXUS 170[plb_2701303_price], or the Sony DSC-W830[plb_3766520_price] which has better reviews.
