With its 20x optical zoom, DiGIC DV and 'Easy' mode, the MV830 combines quality with point-and-shoot simplicity integrating 16: 9 widescreen mode, image stabilization and digital still capability.
In designing the MV830 Canon's engineers have stuck to the maxim that technology is only worth having when it is both simple and useful. They have developed functions that simplify getting great shots and taken out any that stand in the way.
The result: a camcorder that breaks new ground in uncomplicated performance. Controls are positioned for fingertip access to all the key functions. Getting around the menu is intuitive and straightforward. Within seconds of switching it on you can be capturing quality footage. Just flick the 'Easy' switch and the camcorder will handle all settings automatically.
The MV830's high-resolution 16: 9 mode lets you film in true cinemascope as video is captured using the full width of the CCD sensor. Simply push a button and the camcorder does the rest, ensuring footage that's great for playback on a widescreen monitor.
At just 5cm wide, the camcorder's compact body fits snugly in your palm. Despite this small size, its generous 2.4" color LCD screen gives you the detail you need to monitor recordings; brightness is adjustable to aid outdoor visibility.
No matter what lighting you have or where you may be, you need never miss out on getting top quality images. The MV830's powerful 20x optical zoom, with its exceptional contrast and clarity, places you right at the heart of the action.
Even at the strongest magnifications the MV830 captures high fidelity images with its razor sharp 1/6" CCD. The DiGIC DV processor, unique to Canon, translates these into warm, subtle color tones that appear natural and vibrant. Hand held shooting results in steady, calm footage thanks to Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS).
A mechanical shutter ensures blur-free stills that are fit to be printed as quality photos. JPEGs and up to 60 minutes of Motion JPEG are stored direct on MMC or SD memory cards for upload via USB. A DV out link lets you upload your movies, for editing on PC or sharing with friends.
If you want to print a photo you don't even need a PC. Simply connect up the camcorder to any PictBridge compliant printer and select the image you want. Moments later you'll have a quality photograph in your hands.
