The ZR960 is designed to make it as easy as possible for you to record and share brilliant video. As well, a variety of features and an easy-to-read menu system makes the ZR960 a breeze to operate.
Smooth Zoom Control
With Canon's smooth zoom control, you'll have three, pre-set zoom speeds that ensure professional, steady zoom shots.
Level and Grid Markers
Capturing level, well-composed shots is simple with the ZR960. Line up the horizon, or other horizontal lines, with the Level Marker in the viewfinder for level landscapes. Or, use the Grid Marker to help compose the perfect shot. Both markers can be set to white or grey for enhanced visibility, no matter what the background.
Soft LCD Video Light
The ZR960 even comes with a video light built-in to the LCD screen to help give a soft, even light to a nearby subject when you're shooting in dark conditions.
The Joystick makes using the camcorder easier than ever. Extra buttons have been eliminated, allowing you to access many functions from one convenient place. The Joystick lets you control Play, Stop, Fast Forward, and Rewind functions during playback. It also controls exposure lock and exposure compensation during recording.
For the ultimate in stress-free shooting, there's the Easy Mode. In this setting, your ZR960 will automatically choose the focus, exposure and any additional available parameters to ensure that whatever you're recording comes out looking great. You don't have to worry about a thing - just point and shoot!
In addition, this versatile camcorder is designed for lower battery consumption. So there's less chance of missing the shots you want.
