Advanced HAD™ CCD
Enhanced CCD design allows 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). Particularly effective when
shooting in dark situations.

The optical zoom helps to bring the action up
close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom
interpolation means that extreme digital zooming
is clearer, with less distortion than previous types
of digital zooms.

Advanced HAD™ CCD imagers for greater detail
and clarity, while the aspherical lens reduces
optical distortion, and provide better
corner-to-corner focus.
