One of the reasons the Optura 50 delivers stunningly vivid and sharp video and still (1632 X 1224) images is the 2.2 Megapixel CCD -- one of the DV Photo Plus technologies that ensure outstanding results. In the Optura 50, this performance is combined with Canon's advanced RGB Primary Color Filter. Other camcorders process color using a standard CMYG filter, resulting in duller colors. Canon's RGB filter separates light into its red, green and blue components, resulting in professional-quality images with natural-looking tones and vivid hues.
Together, the 2.2 Megapixel CCD and RGB color filter deliver uncompromisingly brilliant results.
