The Canon DIGIC DV II Image Processor is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. DIGIC DV II ensures optimal image quality. It also ensures optimal image quality for still images, even though video and still images have different color requirements. DIGIC DV II is just another one of Canon's advanced technologies that make the FS20 an exceptional performer.
Thanks to Canon DIGIC DV II image processing, the FS20 produces video with improved color reproduction - especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction - for video images that are crystal clear. Regardless of your subject or setting, there's no worry about capturing them more closely to the way they appear in front of you.
Plus, the Canon DIGIC DV II Image Processor features improved continuous shooting of digital photographs with the FS20. You can shoot five 1152 x 648 still images per second, and enjoy faster processing of your images to both the FS20's internal memory as well as your memory card. It also helps lower power consumption for longer battery life.
