1/4.7" Advanced HADTM CCD Imager, 1.0 Mega Pixels Gross 1/4.7" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 690K (effective) pixels provides excellent detail and clarity, with exceptional digital video performance. Realize great looking digital still images utilizing 1000K (effective) pixels. The Mega Pixel technology enhances your digital videos and digital photography performance.
Mini DV Recording Mini DV digital recording format delivers 3X color bandwidth of VHS and lower signal to noise ratio compared to analog formats and provides stunning video performance.
Advanced HADTM CCD Technology The Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) enhanced CCD design allows for more light to reach the imager which reduces video noise to improve signal-to-noise ratio by up to 6dB (2X better than a standard CCD imager). Particularly effective when shooting in dark situations.
520 Lines of Horizontal Resolution Sony's Advanced HADTM CCD technology, combined with Carl Zeiss® optics, provide outstanding video performance with 520 horizontal lines of resolution.
Professional Quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar Lens Carl Zeiss lenses have an advanced optical multi-layer coating resulting in less glare and flare with increased contrast. This produces vivid image brilliance, true-to-life color saturation, and perfect renditions of subtle tones.
10X Optical/120X Precision Digital Zoom The Carl Zeiss® Optical Zoom brings the action close up from far away. In addition, precision digital zoom interpolation technology means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zoom.
2.5" SwivelScreenTM LCD Display (123K Pixels) The 2.5" SwivelScreen LCD display provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 123K pixel LCD rotates up to 270-degrees for multiple viewing angles providing sharp detailed images for monitoring or playback.

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).
1.07 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.
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′).

Minimum illumination
Also known as light sensitivity, this is the smallest amount of light needed for the camera to produce an image of useable quality.
