Video Performance* (3.0)*
The Canon DC330 is equipped with a 1/6-inch CCD with a gross pixel count of 1,070,000. The effective pixel count in 16:9 (widescreen) mode is 550,000. In 4:3, that effective pixel count is increased to 690,000. These specs are slightly better than we find on entry-level camcorders. The sensor size is the same, but the pixel count is higher, so we should expect to see a higher resolution image.
