Widescreen-ready Megapixel DVD camcorder for video and photos that benefits from a Canon 45x Advanced Zoom. Compatibility with DVD-R DL and a high capacity battery pack offers extended recording. Get closer to the action than ever before. Canon’s Advanced Zoom offers a zoom factor of 45x when recording 16:9 movies, via the combination of a high quality Canon Video Lens and the power of DIGIC DV II processing. Capture footage directly to DVD via a high quality Megapixel CCD. Simply finalise the DVD (-R/-RW/-R DL) in-camera, ready for playback on a home DVD player. Never miss the moment with Quick Start. One push of the dedicated Quick Start button is all it takes to power up the DC330 almost instantly (from Standby mode). An intuitive Joystick on the frame of the LCD screen enables easy access to shooting and playback controls. Alternatively, a powerful multiangle remote control allows you to operate the DC330 from anywhere in the room. Record onto DVD-R Dual Layer media and take advantage of longer recording times. Perfect for extended days out, you can store up to 108 minutes on an 8cm Dual Layer DVD. Using the True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording system, capture movies that are perfect for playback on widescreen TV sets. The True Wide system incorporates a 2.7 inch 16:9 LCD screen and a 0.35 inch 16:9 EVF (Electronic Viewfinder).
Inherited from Canon’s High Definition camcorder range, DIGIC DV II is an advanced image processor offering superior response times and advanced noise reduction technology. With split path processing, DIGIC DV II is able to handle video and still images separately, optimising the colours of each – whether for a TV screen or a photo print. Turn the DC330’s LCD screen to face forwards and it doubles as a handy video light. Perfect for shooting in dark conditions, it becomes possible to capture close-up subjects in full colour. Still images are captured directly to SD or SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards, easily shared with friends and family. Alternatively, the camcorder can be connected directly to a PictBridge compatible printer, for easy photo printing.
