Video Performance* (3.0)*
The Sony DCR-DVD108 offers a truly entry-level imaging set. Inside is a small 1/6" CCD with the standard low-end gross pixel count of 680,000 and an effective pixel count of 340,000 in 4:3, and 260,000 in 16:9. These numbers indicate that you should not shoot in 16:9 (the de facto size of all future video), as you’ll only be using a small portion of the imager.
At 3000 lux, the camcorder looked very similar to its predecessor, the DCR-DVD105.
