Video Performance* (3.0)*
The Panasonic VDR-D230 is equipped with a 1/6-inch CCD, with a gross pixel count of 680,000. The effective pixel count in 16:9 aspect ratio is 460,000 pixels, and in 4:3 aspect ratio it’s 340,000 pixels. This is the standard imager for entry level camcorders, which should give you some idea of what to expect in image quality.
First, we took the VDR-D230 into the lab to shoot our DSC Labs Chroma DuMonde color chart at an even 3000 lux.
