22 Reasons For

Bridge cameras manufactured by Samsung have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just bridge cameras) and found that Samsung also has good ratings across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on bridge cameras that have been available for a comparable time 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.

There are a number of other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might also want to consider including the Nikon Coolpix L810 ($249.00), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ30 ($174.95), or the Fujifilm FinePix SL300 which has better reviews.
