The Kodak 1450 has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most digital cameras that were released more than two years ago. 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 across all digital cameras of this type and age.
Across comparable types of digital camera the worst sensor type is MOS.
