what is this and how do i use this Answered

i pulled apart a camcorder and this is what i found behind the lens. i think its the camera but i dont know. can you please help me figure out what it is and give me some ideas as to what to to with it.


thanks for the help. I'm still a "no0bie" and don't know a lot about this tech on this level. most of the camera was surface mount and it was hard to figure out whats what. any way thanks again for the help.

The lens ? which isn't pictured, probably not very easily because of the focal length.

Being the business portion of the camera, it received the ( lens ) focused beam and converted it into an electronic signal. It may even contain the base memory too...

. That's the sensor. Or at least it appears to be and it was in the right location.
