The DC100 is ready to record high-resolution true widescreen 16: 9 movies. It features a color viewfinder and a wide 2.7" LCD screen, allowing video footage to be monitored exactly as it will appear on a widescreen TV set. The LCD includes a level marker to help center the horizon.
Switching between 16: 9 widescreen and 4: 3 shooting modes is easy and done at the push of a single button.
A powerful, precision-engineered 25x optical zoom delivers great looking footage. While Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) eliminates unwanted vibration, a range of different zoom speeds is available for greater control.
Thanks to Canon's DIGIC DV processor, separate signal paths are provided for video and stills, ensuring that colors are optimized and remain vivid and vibrant for each.
In a smooth and rounded body, the compact DC100 is perfectly portable. The DC100's lens is always protected thanks to a convenient sliding lens cover incorporated into the camcorder's body.
