Getting closer to the action is easy with a Canon 45x Advanced Zoom - the quality of genuine Canon optics and the power of DIGIC DV processing bring even distant subjects near. An Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) helps eliminate camera shake and keeps movies looking smooth.
With a one-push Easy mode, even total novices can use the MD255 to shoot great-looking footage. A handy joystick controller, located on the frame of the LCD, provides easy access to more sophisticated moviemaking features. The multiangle remote control gives you even greater shooting freedom: with a remote sensor positioned on the camcorder's fold out LCD screen, simply angle the screen towards you to shoot from virtually any location.
The MD255 lets you use the LCD screen as a handy video light. When turned to face your shooting subject, it provides enough illumination to let you record close-up in poorly-lit situations.
