ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the digital camcorder's image-capturing chip, the charge-coupled device (CCD). It takes a brief look at CCD technology. The article details how CCDs work, why some camcorders have more than one CCD, and which of a camcorder's many systems rely on the CCD to operate. It describes the key features of selected CCDs.
