A beautiful palm-sized video in a class of its own, the MV3iMC, is a wonderful new addition to Canon's digital video range. MV3iMC incorporates an array of miniaturization innovations to set new standards in image quality, compactness and versatility. It is the first Canon digital video to take advantage of the MultiMediaCard. By inserting this card into the camcorder's built-in slot, you can take digital still snaps using the MV3iMC's Photo button. These images can then be directly transferred from the card to your computer without the need for connecting cables, and the search and edit options contained on the MultiMediaCard also open up a range of image combination possibilities. Weighing about the same as a can of soft drink, MV3iMC gives you all the functions and usability you want in an ultra compact, stylish all-metal cased, hand-sized package. A camcorder and digital still camera rolled into one, Canon's MV3iMC offers exceptional value.
The compact design of MV3iMC is contributed to by signal processing LSI and Canon's second-generation interior working (mechachassis) along with a slim lithium-ion battery and repositioning of switches. MV3i features an improved RGB progressive scan CCD for excellent color reproduction, and is ideal for users who want to use the camcorder as a digital stills camera. Using progressive scanning, MV3iMC camcorder reads and isolates information frame by frame. Sharp still images are then recorded at a speed of 25 full-frame images per second - ideal for fast moving subjects. If user wants to be sure to capture the best moments, the progressive scan mode makes it possible to record the moving image and then choose the desired still image(s) from the recorded tape. The MV3 series has a new 3-element stereo microphone system, which enhances the capacity to minimize the voice of the operator, therefore creating a more equal balance with the voice of the person being filmed. This new microphone system is located on top of the camcorder, thus contributing further to the compact size of these camcorders. The MV3 series also feature an audio dubbing function. With this feature it is possible to create or replace commentary or music to footage allowing for personalized films.
