Now, you can leave your digital still camera at home. That's because, with Canon's DoubleShot technology, you don't just get video and photography -- you get the best of both. Plus, you get a wealth of photo features found on advanced digital still cameras.
The DC230 helps you make accurate exposures with its histogram display. Special Scene Modes also ensure accurate exposures under a wide variety of difficult lighting conditions. Modes include: Portrait, Sports, Night, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Spotlight, or Fireworks. Plus, Auto Exposure Bracketing automatically shoots three frames: normal exposure, -0.5 EV and +0.5 EV.
Progressive Photo ensures images with sharp detail, while Image Effects let you adjust the image depending on your subject. Effects include: Vivid, Neutral and Soft Skin Detail.
You also get 9-point AiAF (Auto Intelligent Autofocus) for sharp focus even if your subject isn't in the center of your shot.
Simultaneous Photo Recording lets you capture a digital photograph while recording video.
No matter how you take your photos, you have the choice of capturing those still images either onto DVD or a miniSD card.
The DC230 also comes equipped with different Drive modes for greater flexibility. You get: Single Shooting, Continuous Shooting, High Speed Continuous Shooting, and Auto Exposure Bracketing.
