The DIGIC DV II Image Processor is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Designed specifically for HD, DIGIC DV II ensures optimal image quality for HD recording. It also ensures optical image quality for video and still images, even though video and photos have different color requirements.
The DIGIC DV II Image Processor is just another one of Canon's advanced technologies that make the VIXIA HG20 an exceptional performer. Thanks to DIGIC DV II image processing, the VIXIA HG20 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 high definition images with crystal clear audio.
Plus, DIGIC DV II features improved continuous shooting of digital photographs with the VIXIA HG20. You can shoot five (3.1 Megapixel) still images per second, and enjoy faster processing of your images to your memory card (1.4x normal card; 2.5x Hi Speed card). It also helps lower power consumption for longer battery life.
