MOS Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CMOS sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on MILC cameras that came out around the same time as it.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CMOS sensor and we think the Sony Alpha A5100[plb_2417436_price] which is cheaper; or the Samsung NX2000[plb_2085238_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
