    The CCDs are the part of the camera that is sensitive to light - they are like the film in a SLR camera or the retina of your eye. For professional results, you need 3 CCD chips (one each for red, green and blue light). Single chip cameras (generally) belong in the domestic market. When it comes to CCDs, size matters. Bigger is better. Most prosumer cameras use 1/4" CCDs, although a few models use 1/3" CCDs. Industrial cameras have 1/2" CCDs, while pro cameras use 2/3" CCDs. A larger CCD results in better pictures, even if the pixel count is the same.

    I'd add that the NUMBER of CCDs (not the size) affects mostly COLOUR ACCURACY: 3 CCD camcorders have better chroma reproduction than the single ccd ones.

    Better colour, better low light performance. It = quality
