CCD camcorders uses a single sensor to capture a single color pixel. Color information for the other two colors are then extrapolated from the single sensor - this is different from the 3CCD camcorders which use three different sensors to capture each color pixel. Consequently, CCD cameras offer much lower video quality as compared to the 3CCD cameras but are also priced correspondingly lesser.

The best consumer CCD camcorders offer a good night recording experience on a budget, though not as good as the professional 3CCD camcorders. Canon and JVC are some good brands to buy CCD camcorders at a $500-$600 price range.
