It's a new kind of image sensor, the Progressive Scan CCD, that makes the Elura2 MC able to bring such clarity to fast moving subjects. The soccer game, the child on a swing, the panning shots across a landscape—these and more come out smooth and clear (like you saw them).
The same feature makes it possible to snatch crisp stills at 30 shots per second using Elura2 MC's Digital Motor Drive. And, Progressive Scan CCD provides the versatility to create print-from-video with digital photo resolution.
Compare it to Interlace methods, which shoot half an image at a time and combine the two to produce a single frame. The lapse of time between the halves blurs motion, and produces a disturbing image flicker when paused. Progressive Scan CCD doesn't-it is the superior, next-generation technology.
