Camera: MVX3i 2.2Mp 10X BE
With the 2.2 Megapixel CCD the MVX3i produces ultra high-resolution video images with 1.7 effective Megapixel as well as still images recorded at 2.0 effective Megapixel. Zoom range is 10x optical/200x digital for movies, 9x optical/36x digital for stills. To keep compositions pin-sharp, the MVX3i is equipped with an Optical Image Stabilizer.
An RGB Primary Color Filter ensures reds, greens and blues keep their intensity when reproduced. DIGIC DV ensures the recorded colours of both movies and stills match the colours you see at the time of shooting.
With MPEG4 your movies are routed to the SD Memory Card for easy transfer to your computer. The MPEG4 recording time is only limited by the size of the SD Memory Card.
A high level of creative control is provided by means of Auto Exposure Bracketing, Back Light Compensation and Manual Audio Level Control. The Custom Key button allows you to select various modes - such as Optical Image Stabilizer, Zebra Pattern and Drive Mode - easily and quickly.
High Resolution 16:9 mode for great image quality on wide screen TV without distorting the image by adding more effective pixels.
A variety of shooting modes allow you to get the best shot when shooting stills. These include Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Auto Exposure and Slow Shutter speed. You can also take still photos during movie recording.
Direct Print lets you obtain superb photo prints quickly and easily by connecting straight to a Canon printer – there's no PC required. PictBridge lets you do the same with any PictBridge compatible printer.
Existing analogue recordings can be easily converted into digital format. With USB and IEEE1394 FirewireTM connectivity, transferring images to a computer is completely straightforward.
DV Messenger 2.0 software allows two-way communication over the internet. You can have a videoconference, control the camcorder remotely and share digital photos and movie clips complete with sound.
