Canon DC300 offers advanced zoom

0 comments

Canon SA’s new DC300 series of direct-to-DVD camcorders incorporate straight-to-DVD recording with the company’s Advanced Zoom system.


 Providing crisp, clear image quality – from wide to telephoto – Advanced Zoom opens up new possibilities for moviemakers shooting sports, wildlife and other distant subjects straight to disk.
Since the majority of TVs on sale today are native widescreen, each camcorder is equipped for True Wide 16:9 recording. Compatibility with DVD Dual Layer (DVD-R DL) media and Canon’s high capacity battery pack extends recording time, allowing every moviemaker to capture that extra shot.
Comments Roger Machin, product manager at Canon Consumer Imaging SA: “The ease of direct-to-DVD recording combined with Advanced Zoom technology undoubtedly raises the standard for DVD-based camcorders.”

Canon’s Advanced Zoom system equips each camcorder in the DC300 series with more telephoto reach than was previously available at this level. Advanced Zoom combines the quality of genuine Canon optics with the processing capabilities of the DIGIC DV II image processor, allowing distant events – such as a bird in flight or a concert performance – to be captured clearly.
Every camcorder in the new range offers True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording – perfect for playback on widescreen TVs. Canon’s True Wide system also incorporates a widescreen 2.7-inch LCD – perfect for previewing movies in the correct dimensions – and a widescreen EVF (Electronic Viewfinder): allowing users to save on battery power when framing their shots during recording.
