Canon DC 201 ... powerful video image processor originally designed for High Definition (HD) recording. A range of user-friendly features includes a Quick Start button and an intuitive menu system, easily navigated using a Joystick controller. The camcorder offers additional digital stills functionality, recording to disc.
This camcorder is optimized for high-resolution true widescreen recording. A wide 2.7" LCD and a 0.27" 16:9 color EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) allow users to compose and play back footage in the same dimensions that will be displayed on a wide TV set. It is then a simple process to finalize the DVD in-camera before playing it back in a compatible home DVD player. The camcorder can also be switched to standard 4:3 recording mode.
Designed for genuine one-handed shooting, controls are optimally positioned on the camcorder body. A Joystick at the back of the camcorder falls easily under the right thumb and is used for easy selection of a range of shooting features. The DC 201 also features Canon's Quick Start innovation.
It can take most camcorders several seconds to be ready to record after being switched on. With Quick Start, however, a camcorder enters Record mode almost instantly. With one push of the dedicated Quick Start button, the camcorder rests in Standby mode, conserving battery power. With one more push of the button, the camcorder is ready to record in approximately one second. Quick Start allows users to capture events they might otherwise miss - a child's first steps, for instance, or a match-winning goal.
DIGIC DV II was first introduced with Canon's flagship HD camcorder, the XL H1. Designed to handle the increased data rate of HD, this ultra-fast image processor is now found in camcorders across Canon's range. DIGIC DV II features advanced noise reduction technology that results in sharper, higher quality images. It also provides true-to-life colors that appear vivid and vibrant on the screen. With split path processing, video and photo signals are handled separately, allowing optimal color reproduction for each.
Compatibility with Dual Layer media (DVD-R DL) allows users to record more. Up to 108 minutes of video can be stored on a single disc, cutting down on the amount of times a shooting day has to be interrupted.
