    Hello if CCD = Charge Coupled Device, do you know what a tri CCD camcorder is? Thanks in advance, Mark

    I shoudl imagine it has three (hence the tri bit) CCDs.

    Three CCD's instead of one, (one to record the blue part of the light spectrum, one to record the red part of the light spectrum and one to record the green part of the light spectrum). Splitting the light into R, G and B and being able to process them separately helps keep the picture quality up. Now that CMOS is taking off you will see more camcorders with 3 CMOS or just 3MOS.
