Sony Cameras Have Good Reviews

Bridge camera digital cameras manufactured by Sony have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just bridge camera digital cameras) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

Good Technical Features

A number of people who bought the product reckoned that it had good features. Ephotozine.com said on expert review site Ephotozine “It also features Intelligent Auto, Beauty Effect”. Four years ago expert website Toptenreviews.com gave it a score of 4 stars and wrote in their review “This camera takes exceptional photos and has plenty of editing features.”.

CCD Sensor Type

The Sony DSC-H200 has a CCD sensor type which is better than most bridge camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as it. Most digital cameras that were released around the same time as it have a MOS sensor type. 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.

A CCD sensor type is actually the best sensor type across all bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the DSC-H200.

Across comparable types of digital camera the worst sensor type is MOS.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Nikon COOLPIX L120 ($260.00), the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 ($200.00), or the Olympus SP-620UZ.

We compared all the other 52x digital zoom digital cameras to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-HX200 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Sony DSC-HX400 ($449.99) (126x and higher rated).
