Ready for high resolution 16: 9 recording, the MV950 records stunning panoramic pictures in widescreen. With a color viewfinder and 2.7" wide color LCD screen, footage that's shot can be monitored exactly as it will appear on a widescreen TV. The LCD features a convenient level marker, helping to keep the horizon line level, and a single button to switch between 16: 9 and 4: 3 modes.
With an Electronic Image Stabilizer and variable zoom speeds, the 25x Canon lens is constructed to the highest optical standards.
As well as recording great looking video, the MV950 allows you to capture digital photos to SD card. Dedicated still shooting features include Canon's 9-point Artificial Intelligent Auto-focus (AiAF), letting you choose what area of the image displayed on the LCD screen you want to keep in focus.
With a Night Mode LED, even the darkest conditions won't prevent you from recording the moment to video tape.
Canon's DIGIC DV imaging processor provides dual processing paths, one each for video and photos. Ensuring that colors are always vivid and bright, whether you're watching video on a TV or printing out onto photo paper, DIGIC DV also allows a photograph to be shot at the same time as video is being recorded.
While the camcorder's one-push Easy Shooting mode sets all the most important controls to automatic, letting even beginners start recording straight away, it's easy to learn how to take more control thanks to the MV950's intuitive six button control layout. An extra wireless controller is also supplied.
At just 380g and finished off in silver metallic, the MV950's new design improves balance and handling during shooting.
