Robust

Four Nikon Coolpix S570 owners who reviewed the product concluded that it was well made. Expert review site Thinkcomputers.org mentioned five years ago “I think the thing for me that really sets it apart from other compact digital camera that I’ve had is the build quality”.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as it. 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.

If the memory card type of this Nikon digital camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS[plb_1206_price] (MMC|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60[plb_2145753_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
