Canon's DIGIC DV technology gives you the best of both worlds all in one compact device. Since videos and photos have different color requirements, DIGIC DV uses special color optimization techniques when processing an image for output to a TV or printer. The result is accurate, life-like color reproduction in all your videos and photos.
DIGIC DV is one of the ways Canon's DV Photo Plus brings you quality images. Our experience is the key to delivering your memories just the way you remember them.
Simultaneous Photo Recording
No more fumbling with two different types of digital cameras! The Optura camcorders help keep your options open by allowing you to capture e-mail-ready photos (640x480 pixels) onto the memory card while simultaneously recording video to DV tape.
The VIC Chip
Dubbed "The Virtual Powerhouse", Canon's VIC processor effortlessly handles all of the camcorder's input and output functions, giving you seamless connectivity whether connected to a TV, computer or VCR.
