16 Reasons For

Pentax Has Excellent Digital Camera Reviews

Pentax has poor ratings for its compact camera digital cameras, however it has excellent average ratings when measured across its entire digital camera range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras that have been on the market 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 compared this camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
