Image sensor
Total megapixels *
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
2.96 MP
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Optical sensor size
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
0,24 - 2,4" (6,1 - 61 mm)
Filter size
A filter is a screen, plate, or layer of a substance which absorbs light or other radiation or selectively absorbs some of its components e.g. a UV filter to reduce UV light. Filters come in various sizes.
1,46" (3,7 cm)
Camcorder tape type *
The type of tape used to record images from a camcorder, e.g. VHS, Video8.
Camera shutter speed
Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure.
Display diagonal *
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
Display resolution
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
210000 pixels
123000 pixels
Viewfinder screen size
Color of product *
The colour e.g. red, blue, green, black, white.
Black, Silver
Built-in microphone
Microphone that is found inside the product.
Battery type
Description of battery supplied with the product, such battery form factor (e.g. AA/AAA).
Weight & dimensions
Width *
The measurement or extent of something from side to side.
2,2" (56 mm)
Depth *
The distance from the front to the back of something.
4,09" (104 mm)
Height *
The measurement of the product from head to foot or from base to top.
4,17" (106 mm)

Quirky ergonomics; microphone is on the back of the camcorder; poor battery life; no microphone or headphone jacks.
The HV10 is capable of shooting superb video and still images, but its microphone placement and lack of a microphone jack—among other flaws—are difficult to accept. The HV10 would be a top consumer camcorder if it weren’t for the i...

The HV10 captures HD through the HDV format, so youre still recording onto a Mini DV tape. The tape itself loads into the bottom of the camcorder, which is also where you mount the camera onto a tripod, so you have to remove the camera from the tripod...
