19 Reasons For

Olympus Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Compact camera digital cameras produced by Olympus have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just compact camera digital cameras) and found that Olympus also has good reviews across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many similar spec cameras that are a comparable age to 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.

We compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Coolpix L120[pl_1186_price], and the Coolpix L320[pl_1939468_price] both from Nikon which has better reviews is also worth considering.
