You want your memories to last forever- that's why you've taken the time to shoot them. And you want to shoot in widescreen format to get everything you can out of your new widescreen TV or home theater system.
So why is the way you record widescreen images so important? Because you want an image made for widescreen, not adapted for widescreen. Widescreen is the future- every HD television is widescreen.
The story of how we do it may be a bit technical, but the result is clear to see. Canon camcorders use the entire width of its image sensor to capture your precious video in true 16:9 format. What difference does that make? It's simple. With more pixels captured, you get better image quality. Other camcorders force the wider picture into a smaller space on the sensor- giving you a less true image, with fewer pixels and lower quality. On a Canon camcorder, the canals of Venice will be as grand as you remembered seeing them.
In addition, the viewfinder on your Elura will display the image in a "letterbox" view- from side to side and top to bottom, what you see will be what you get. No guessing and extra work, looking at an image that's distorted like a fun house mirror.
To make it even easier, a Widescreen Button lets you switch from standard 4:3 to 16:9 Widescreen Mode at the touch of your finger. You can also use the widescreen feature in both Program Mode and Easy Recording Mode and can be used along with the camcorder's advanced image stabilization.
All of the Eluras give you the opportunity to own a camcorder that shoots as wide as your widescreen TV. Why shouldn't your camcorder shoot as wide as your widescreen TV? It should- and our competitors can't match the widescreen video you'll get from your Canon Elura.
Remember- widescreen is the future- be sure you invest in that future with a Canon camcorder.
Shoot with confidence knowing that every hue of what you see will be captured with extraordinary clarity and detail by the Elura 80's 1.33 Megapixel Image Sensor. The product of Canon ingenuity and technological expertise, the image sensor achieves high-resolution results whether recording video to DV tape or still images onto a memory card. Photos can be captured at a variety of different image qualities and compression sizes (Superfine/ Fine/Normal) giving you the ability to balance quantity with quality.
The secret behind Canon's renowned video and photo image quality is the DIGIC DV system. DIGIC DV utilizes two different color techniques to maximize video quality for viewing on TVs and still image quality for print or computer display.
Digital PCM Audio (16-bit/12-bit)
Your videos won't just look great, they'll sound great too. The Elura-series digital camcorders offer a high-quality 16-bit (48 kHz, 2 channels) audio recording mode for sound that is better than CD quality and equivalent to DAT tape. You can also capture audio with the 12-bit (32 kHz, 2 from 4 channels) audio mode for recording on two channels (stereo 1), leaving the remaining two channels (stereo 2) free for post-production audio recording, such as narration and music.
Perfect for capturing the action of your first-born's soccer game or a majestic vista during your dream retirement vacation, the Elura 80 features an 18x Optical Zoom/360x Digital Zoom lens. Witness first-hand the outstanding imagery, vibrant color and superior clarity that could only come from Canon's vast expertise in designing and crafting precision lenses for 35mm and broadcast TV cameras. Snap on the optional WA-34 Wide Attachment (0.7x), and you'll be able to capture a wider perspective for indoor shots or panoramic views.
New design features include:
New Program Selector -- Located beside the LCD display, the Program Selector makes it easy to quickly switch modes.
Tape/Card Selector -- For effortless one-handed operation, the Tape/Card Selector button is now located in the same area as the photo button.
Slim Operation Switch -- For increased miniaturization, the Elura 80 features an innovative Slim Operation Switch.
Children, friends, pets, and yes, even Mother Nature can hard to pin down at the best of times. That's no problem, however, for the Elura 80 thanks to Canon's high quality Image Stabilization system. Even when shooting hand-held at full telephoto, the Image Stabilization system is working behind the scenes to instantly correct camcorder shake, resulting in videos that are smooth, steady and natural.
Now it's easier than ever to compose sensational shots without having to squint into the viewfinder. When shooting outdoors, the Elura 80's bright 2.5" LCD view screen features an LCD Backlight button that boosts the displays brightness by 250%. You can also rotate the screen for high-or low-angle shots, or turn it around 180 to record yourself. When you're done shooting, the screen is perfect for reviewing your scenes.
Printing and downloading images to a computer is a quick, easy and enjoyable task with the Elura 80. Once connected to a printer, the Elura 80's Print/Share button lights up blue, letting you know that you can begin printing simply by pressing it once. You can also transfer a photo directly to your computer, with just a single press of the button.
Exif Print 2.2
Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP)
If you have a PictBridge compatible printer, such as a CP-200 or CP-300 Card Photo Printer, a Canon Photo Direct Bubble Jet Printer or another manufacturer's printer that supports PictBridge, you can effortlessly connect your Elura camcorder directly to the printer. No need to transfer your images to a computer first.
Exif Print 2.2
The Elura camcorders support Exif Print (2.2), a worldwide standard that enhances communication between digital cameras and printers. At the time of shooting, important camcorder settings and scene data are recorded with the image. This information aids the computer and printer in producing realistic and reliable color reproduction. Not happy with your shot? The information can also be used to easily correct poor lighting or mistakes, resulting in photos that are even better than the originals.
Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP)
No more frustration with hard-to-understand Support CDs or at not being able to download missing drivers. The entire line of Elura digital camcorders supports Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), enabling data communication with a computer without having to install dedicated driver software. Your computer simply accesses the camcorder as if it were an external card reader (available only with computers running Windows XP or Mac OS X version 10.1 or later).
DV Terminal (IEEE 1394)
SD Memory Card/MultiMediaCard Slots
DV Terminal (IEEE 1394)
The IEEE1394-compliant DV terminal lets you connect the camcorder to a DV-compatible computer or another Canon DV camcorder, making it easy to transfer your digital movies to your computer's hard disk, edit your scenes, and then use them to create high-impact Web sites, video e-mail, interactive CDs and DVDs, or a personal video album.
The USB Terminal makes for high-speed transfer of images from your SD Memory Card or MultiMediaCard to your computer. By using the USB cable and software provided, you can process and organize your images on your PC.
SD Memory Card/MultiMediaCard Slots
For convenient storage and portability of your still images, the Elura 80 features a built-in slot for SD (Secure Digital) Memory Cards and MultiMediaCards. You can also store Motion JPEG mini-movies directly on the removable card for later attaching to e-mails or posting on the Web. Shoot in two different resolutions, 320x240 or 160x120, for the full duration of the SD Memory Card.
It's all thanks to Canon's connection circuit called VIC. VIC is a virtual powerhouse. Traditionally, multiple chips were needed to perform the camcorder's input and output functions. However VIC manages it all with one single chip. The result is seamless connectivity whether you are connecting to a computer, TV, or VCR.
