Smart looks, smart technology…smart choice.
Stylish and ergonomic With a sleek, compact body that fits easily in your hand, the MVX250i is ergonomically designed and beautifully balanced. It's easy to operate, with key controls positioned at your fingertips.
Capture the detail
The MVX250i provides superior image resolution thanks to a 1.33 megapixel CCD. Whether recording movies or stills, images are consistently sharp and detailed.
Colours as you remember them
Canon's remarkable DIGIC DV processor means recorded colours are just as you remember them. Blue skies aren't washed out, green grass is natural, while 'hot' colours such as reds and oranges lose none of their intensity. Importantly, skin tones remain beautifully neutral.
Powerful zoom and blur-free images
The 18x optical zoom gives you a large magnification range which increases to 360x in combination with the digital zoom. You won't have to worry about image-blur either, since the camcorder is equipped with Canon's unique Image Stabilizer, virtually eliminating the effects of camera-shake. The Image Stabilization is so effective you can even shoot from a moving car with no noticeable loss of definition.
Shooting at night
Night Mode means you can shoot at night - the camcorder automatically adjusting to the darkness. Super Night Mode lets you record in the pitch black and still maintain colour and shadow detail.
Advanced Accessory Shoe
With the Advanced Accessory Shoe, optional accessories can be mounted on the MV650i. Once mounted, the shoe is capable of exchanging data and supplying power directly to all accessories with which it is compatible, such as the Video light VL-3 and the Directional Stereo Microphone DM-50, which enable users to enhance both picture and sound quality.
Stills as well as movies
The MVX250i lets you shoot superb stills in the same way as a digital camera. Photos are genuine digital shots in that a mechanical shutter is used - eliminating the blur that's a common occurrence in conventional camcorder stills. You can also shoot stills at the same time as you're shooting a movie.
Printing your digital stills is completely straightforward. With the help of a Print/Share button that lights up to indicate successful connection, all you do is connect the MVX250i to a Canon printer (or any PictBridge-compatible printer) and select the image you want and print. There's no need for a PC.
Sharing with friends and family
The MVX250i also features a Motion JPEG recording function, which means that short movies can be recorded onto a memory card making it easy to download to a personal computer or send via email - just connect, download and send. Depending on the memory card capacity, up to 60 minutes of either QVGA or QQVGA formats can be recorded straight to card. You can now also transfer movies from the mini DV tape to Mulitmedia
