The name Canon is synonymous with optical excellence the world over. Brilliant optical quality is part of every Canon broadcast TV lens, 35mm film camera, digital camera and camcorder -- and the DC230 is no exception. It gives you clear, vibrant and brilliant video and digital photographs.
The quality begins with Canon's longest optical zoom ever -- the Genuine Canon 35x Optical Zoom lens. The lens is precisely matched to the camcorder's CCD and features 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 1000x Digital Zoom, you can capture every shot -- whether it's a wide view of the whole family at Thanksgiving, or a close up of your child on stage.
And thanks to Canon's superior electronic expertise, the DC230's image stabilization system corrects camcorder shake instantly. The built-in, high-quality image stabilizer allows you to shoot professional-looking, rock-steady video -- whether you're recording sporting events, your child's birthday party, or a long focal length shot without a tripod. Your life never sits still, and the DC230 will help you capture it all.
