This Dual Cam incorporates an array of picture improvement technologies including a 680K-Pixel progressive scan CCD, progressive color filter and high-band processor. These Technologies assure ultra-high resolution with up to 520 lines of horizontal and 480 lines of vertical resolution in Progressive mode. This technology also offers digital still picture quality with two different image sizes, VGA (640X 480 pixels) and XGA (1024X 768 pixels). Dual Shooting Mode lets you shoot motion video and still pictures simultaneously. The supplied removable 8MB MMC card is used to store not only still images, also a variety of Digital Sound Effects (MP3). These effects can be inserted into a DV recording at anytime to create more exciting and unique videos. The 112, 000-pixel 2.5" amorphous color LCD allows the camera to be operated from any angle, for maximum comfort. The 200X zoom makes sure you do not miss any of the action. A built-in auto flash with red-eye reduction provides extra convenience for taking still shots in low light or at night. A digital still picture output is provided, and both the serial cable and CD ROM software for Windows and MAC. DV In/Out provides for easy computer connection for more advanced applications. Playback zoom (10X digital pinpoint zoom) lets you move in for a closer look after you have made the recording.
