  • Print and Share

Genuine Canon Optics

Canon MiniDV camcorders feature high-precision lenses designed specifically for their use. Each camcorder has a unique lens that matches its CCD for optimal quality. Our camcorder lenses feature the same distinguished quality found in 35mm cameras and broadcast TV cameras. That's why professionals and consumers alike have trusted the name Canon to preserve moments as vivid as the actual experience.


Canon's Megapixel CCD

Canon's Megapixel CCD Image Sensor delivers crisp images with life-like detail. Whether you are shooting video or photos with the camcorder, you will get the best results. The CCD works like film -- when light is captured by the sensor, it registers an image and advanced processing converts the pixels into digital data creating your video or photos.


Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV

DIGIC DV, our exclusive signal processing circuit, makes it possible to achieve accurate color for both video and digital photos. Since video and digital photos have different color requirements, DIGIC DV utilizes two different color techniques to maximize video quality on a TV and still image quality for print or computer display.

Print and Share

Print and Share from your camcorder! A variety of Canon digital camcorders feature a Print and Share Button, which makes it easy to print photos directly to a printer or transfer images onto your computer with a simple touch of a button. Simply connect the camcorder to a select Canon printer or any PictBridge compatible printer, select an image and print it for your family and friends. It's like having your very own photo lab at home.
