Because of Genuine Canon Optics, the name Canon is synonymous with unsurpassed optical performance. Brilliant optical quality is part of every Canon broadcast TV lens, 35mm film camera, digital camera and camcorder -- and the DC100 is no exception.
The DC100 comes with a 25x optical zoom lens, precisely matched to the camcorder's CCD and featuring high-quality glass with a unique, super spectra coating developed exclusively by Canon to reduce flare and ghosting for a clean image. Combined with the camcorder's powerful 1000x digital zoom, you get the widest range of focal lengths available in a Canon, single CCD camcorder. Whether you're recording beautiful nature panoramas, a group shot at your daughter's wedding, or close-ups at your child's birthday party -- you always have the right lens.
The DC100's built-in, high-quality image stabilizer allows you to shoot rock-steady video -- whether you're shooting sporting events, fun & games at your child's birthday party, or capturing a shot at a long focal length. It even works when you're panning and zooming. Thanks to Canon's superior electronic expertise, the DC100's image stabilization system corrects camcorder shake instantly, thereby eliminating one of the telltale signs of amateur video.
