Make a smooth, easy transition into the world of digital image making with the Elura 80. Featuring an Analog/Digital Converter, the Elura 80 can translate an analog signal into a digital signal for direct transfer to digital video devices or computers equipped with an IEEE1394 terminal*. Your Elura camcorder can also act as a translator between your analog device and another digital device. In simple terms, that means you can easily and effortlessly update your older analog VHS memories directly to digital.
It's all thanks to Canon's connection circuit called VIC. VIC is a virtual powerhouse. Traditionally, multiple chips were needed to perform the camcorder's input and output functions. However VIC manages it all with one single chip. The result is seamless connectivity whether you are connecting to a computer, TV, or VCR.
