Canon Mini Digital Video Camera
Canon introduced some new Mini-DV camcorders recently, with a number of advanced video and photo features, including true two-in-one video and advanced photo features, as well as video viewing on wide screen TV and printing photos at home.
Geared toward beginners and hobbyists, the new 2.2 megapixel Canon Optura 50 and the Canon Optura 60 can capture quality video and photos using the high resolution 16:9 widescreen video recording mode and the same advanced photo features found on Canon's digital cameras.
Both of these new camcorder feature Canon's exclusive DV Photo Plus system, a combination of features and technology that allows users to achieve high quality video and high resolution photos.
With widescreen televisions growing ever more popular, Canon has responded with a high-resolution 16:9 Widescreen video recording mode found on both the Optura 50 and Optura 60 camcorders. You can capture high-resolution 16:9 home videos with up to 33 percent more picture than standard video and play-back on a widescreen television.
According to Canon, the new Optura 50 and Optura 60 Mini-DV camcorders represent the strongest two in one product Canon has ever offered. The new Optura series includes a 2.2 megapixel CCD with an RGB primary color filter for color reproduction that contends with three CCD camcorders.
