CCD Sensor Type

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen cameras and we think the Fujifilm F800EXR[plb_1518759_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Samsung camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77[plb_1836487_price] (3.5"), or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110[plb_2083466_price] (4.8") which also has a higher rating.
