Images

  • Optical Zoom: 35x (and up)
  • Resolution: 1280×720 (and up)

Video

Basic specs for HD Video are:

  • Framerate: 30 fps
  • Aspect Ratio: 640x380
  • Compression: MPEG-2 compatibility
  • Pixels: 1080 dpi


Audio

Audio is not expressly covered by HD, but "Full HD" video is typically associated with a high quality audio source that can be converted for output to a Digital Surround sound (Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, AAC or MP3).


Cameras

Cameras that shoot in HD are becoming increasingly pervasive and affordable.

Consumer

Consumer HD cameras are now in the $300-1500 price range, with cameras at the lower end of the price spectrum typically having fewer features or a lower quality. The quality of these much more affordable consumer-facing HD video camera products are fueling a significant shift towards UGC (on the web especially).


Amateur

Amateur HD cameras run about $5,000 USD.


Professional

Professional HD cameras run about $100,000-2,000,000 USD, depending on the quality and number of accessories.
