The MV600 series allows everyone from camcorder beginners, frequent travelers and families to select a camcorder most suited to their needs. Based on the popular MV500 Series the stylish design has been refreshed still utilizing different colors to emphasize the individuality of each model. These additions to the MV line-up are superbly designed and extremely compact - even with the included high-magnification lens.
Each model uses a totally perfect 1/6-inch 800, 000-pixel CCD, to produce even higher resolution movies. The range also incorporates the MACS (Multi Architecture Camera System) to optimize best quality image settings for movies and stills, depending on whether displayed on TV, PC, or printed via the Direct Print function (no PC is needed).
Each model is also equipped with a high-performance two-sided aspheric Canon lens. The MV600 uses an optical 18x / digital 360x zoom lens for video.
By selecting the shooting mode that best suits the scene, each MV600 series model adjusts internal controls to create the perfect video each time. Mode choices are Auto, Sports, Portrait, Spotlight, Sand and Snow, and Low Light as well as the Night Mode with which color shots are possible even in dim conditions.
A variety of digital effects and fading functions are included for on-camera video editing. These effects previously had to be done on a PC. Effects include colors, ball, mirror, cube and wave while digital fade includes flip, tide, puzzle and beam effects.
For those wanting to produce personalized films, the MV600 camcorder features an Audio Dubbing function. With this it is possible to create or replace commentary or music to footage, thereby enhancing or explaining the images.
The MV600 includes a multi-image screen, which allows images to be played back on the LCD panel divided into 4, 9 or 16 separate screens. Alternatively the camera can display a series of images in sequence. To select the images to be displayed, users can either make a manual choice or use one of the preprogrammed transition speeds: fast, moderate or slow.
Additionally, the range double as web cams using Canon's DV Messenger software, which allows you to take full advantage of Microsoft Windows XP's Messenger program. Simply connect the camcorder to the computer's IEEE1394 terminal to create a video conferencing studio, zoom in for a closer look, adjust focus and control the camcorder's playback functions through your computer.
