digital camera A form of camera in which film is replaced by a semiconductor CCD array, which records the picture and stores it within the camera in a (usually) replaceable memory module. Often a viewing screen is built in allowing immediate reviewing of the pictures stored. Pictures can be transferred to a computer for later viewing, editing, and printing.
