A camera which contains an electronic image sensor rather than photographic film. The lens focuses an image on an electronic tube or CCD chip.
A camera has electronic circuitry which generates color and sync pulses. Most portable consumer camcorders are equipped with a full complement of audio circuitry, e.g., microphone, audio amplifier and additional audio electronics. In order to obtain better quality images, a professional camera has three tubes or a triple CCD system, one for each primary color. Most professional cameras have a genlock input, which allows the camera to be synchronized to an external source. Some cameras also include basic character generators for titling purposes.
