CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on digital cameras of a similar type and 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.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

We compared all the other 20x digital zoom digital cameras to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-H70 is also worth considering.

If this compact camera digital camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the DSC-W730 (32x and higher rated), the DSC-WX80 ($144.49) (32x and higher rated), or the DSC-W830 (32x and higher rated) all from Sony.
