You have them both from the same camera -- without compromising the quality of your video or digital photography. That's because Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing circuit processes video and still images differently. The two signals have different color requirements and DIGIC DV technology processes the two signals accordingly, giving you uncompromised results. That means video images that are maximized for viewing on TV, and digital photographs that look brilliant on computer displays or as prints. DIGIC DV is just one of Canon's DV Photo Plus technologies that help to unleash the performance potential of the Optura 50.
