15 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

On average Sony compact cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all cameras manufactured by Sony.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras of a similar spec 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.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-W800[plb_2163797_price] which is cheaper; or the Olympus VR-340[plb_1686246_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
