4 Reasons For

Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Nikon has good average reviews for its compact camera digital cameras as well as across its entire camera range compared to other brands.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that have been available for more than two years. 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Coolpix L120 ($225.00), or the Coolpix L320 both from Nikon which has better reviews.

We compared all the other cameras which also support video recording to this camera and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($225.00), the Samsung WB800F, or the Fujifilm FinePix JX500 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also support Full HD video to this digital camera and we think the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS, or the Olympus Stylus SH-50 is also worth considering.
