19 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Samsung is one of the better rated digital camera brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Samsung also has good reviews for its compact cameras.

Good Quality Lens

One Samsung SAMSUNG WB100 owner thought this digital camera had a good zoom. Expert review site Pinoytechblog.com said “A 16.2 megapixel super-zoom camera that provides an impressive 26x of zoom, costs Php9,990”.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on digital cameras that are a comparable age to 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.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Samsung 90[plb_1216_price], the Sony DSC-W630[plb_1873640_price], and the Panasonic DMC-FS40EF-Y[plb_1786919_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Samsung camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic DMC-TZ60[plb_2145753_price] (30x), the Sony DSC-HX60[plb_2166574_price] (30x), or the Nikon Coolpix S9700[plb_2173237_price] (30x) which is also higher rated.
