17 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras of this spec and age. 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 digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix S570[plb_2049075_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly High Maximum Waterproof Depth

The maximum waterproof depths of compact camera digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the DC1400 Pro Duo range from 3m to 60m. At 60 meters, the DC1400 Pro Duo has a quite high maximum waterproof depth compared to most of the other digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Screen Size

Across all the cameras of this age and spec the screen sizes range from 1" to 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8". At 3 inches, the DC1400 Pro Duo has a fairly large screen size compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the DC1400 Pro Duo.

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think the Samsung EX2F[plb_1609335_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P520[plb_2085254_price] (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77[plb_1836487_price] (3.5") which also has a higher rating.

Good results with DC1400 pro set, though you need to practice with the flash as it is too bright on factory setting. Great service from the retailer in Germany...
