14 Reasons For

Sony Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

We checked 14,994 owner and expert reviews for Sony digital cameras and found that on average Sony has good ratings. We also found that Sony has good ratings specifically within its compact camera digital cameras range.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market 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.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Samsung ST90, the Olympus VG-180, and the GE J1455 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Across all the cameras of this age and spec the digital zooms range from 1x to 810x. With a digital zoom of 14 times zoom factor, the Sony DSC-W670 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age.

If this camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the IXUS 132 (16x and higher rated), or the IXUS 140 (16x and higher rated) both from Canon or the Samsung WB2100 (14.4x and higher rated).
