14 Reasons For

Samsung Cameras Have Good Reviews

Samsung has good average ratings for its compact cameras as well as across its entire digital camera range compared to other manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as 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.

Other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might also want to look at include the Nikon Coolpix S6700[plb_2272800_price], or the Canon IXUS 162[plb_3019700_price] which has better reviews.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Samsung DV180F supports wi-Fi. Most of the other compact cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the DV180F do not support wi-Fi.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative digital cameras which support wi-Fi currently available including the Panasonic DMC-TZ58[plb_2793592_price], the Medion Life X44038[plb_2972533_price], or the Nikon Coolpix S3700[plb_2714054_price] which has better reviews.

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Medion Life P44022[plb_3109377_price] (8x), or the Sony DSC-W810[plb_3150328_price] (48x) which is also higher rated.
