The ZR700 lets you leave your digital still camera at home. That's because with Canon's DoubleShot technology, you don't just get video and photography -- you get the best of both.
At the heart of the ZR700's performance as a digital still camera is Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing circuit. Because video and still images have different color requirements, DIGIC DV processes the two differently. So, along with stunning video images, you also get digital photos from your ZR700 that are maximized for viewing on computer monitors and as prints.
Your ZR700 also comes with a variety of features that add to its performance as a digital still camera.
A feature found on more expensive camcorders, Auto Intelligent Auto Focus ensures sharp images and gives creative flexibility. Even when your subject isn't in the center of the frame, the ZR700's 9 Point Ai-AF will bring it into sharp focus.
Canon's Progressive Photo feature gives you sharper detail in your digital photography.
For great results under difficult lighting conditions and with tricky subjects, your ZR700 lets you select from a variety of scene modes. You get: EASY, P, Portrait, Sports, Night, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Spotlight, or Fireworks. For example, choose Spotlight and your camcorder exposes for the subject in the center of your frame. Or, pick Night to capture the magic of a cityscape after the sun goes down.
Three different image settings are available depending on your subject: Vivid, Neutral, and Skin Detail.
