18 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Bridge camera digital cameras built by Fujifilm have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just bridge camera digital cameras) and found that Fujifilm also has good ratings across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

The Fujifilm SL300 has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most digital cameras of this age and 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 in fact the best sensor type amongst all cameras of this age and spec.

A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type across similar types of digital camera.

We compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-H300[plb_1611594_price] which is cheaper; or the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
