The Samsung MV800 has a better sensor type than most cameras that are a similar age to it. This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as it have a MOS sensor type. 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.
This digital camera's sensor type (CCD) is actually the best sensor type across all comparable spec digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the MV800.
The worst sensor type across comparable types of digital camera is MOS.
