13 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We calculated the average ratings for all Canon cameras and also specifically for Canon compact cameras and found that in both cases Canon had good ratings.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact cameras that were launched in the last 12 months. 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the IXUS 180[pl_3191140_price], or the IXUS 175[pl_3191143_price] both from Canon which has better reviews.
