The JVC GZ-HD7 features three 1/5" CCDs, each featuring a gross pixel count of 570,000 (an approximate effective pixel count of 530,000). The camcorder, like many three-chip models, uses pixel shifting to increase the effective resolution, off-setting one of the chips by a half a pixel’s X and Y axes. In this case, the recorded image resolution is approximately 2032 x 1116, or an effective resolution of 1952 x 1096. Each pixel on the CCDs measures 3.
