AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
Zoom microphones record very high quality audio, and enable you to record sound from a distance. This can be useful for recording meetings, lectures and presentations.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
