Description : With its 20x optical zoom, DiGIC DV and 'Easy' mode, the MV800 combines quality with point-and-shoot simplicity. It features a 2.4" LCD, 16: 9 widescreen mode and image stabilization.
The MV800 has a high-resolution 16: 9 mode, which lets you film in cinemascope and is great if you want to play back your footage on a widescreen monitor. And it's as easy to use as the Easy mode. Simply push the button and the camcorder is ready to capture true widescreen images, using the full width of the CCD sensor.
The MV800's compact body measures just 5cm across and fits easily in the palm of your hand. It may be small, but its 2.4" color LCD monitor gives you plenty of screen space to keep your eye on detail as you record. What's more, screen brightness is adjustable to aid visibility in outdoor locations.
No matter what kind of lighting you have or where you may be, you can rely on capturing the essence of the scenes you shoot. The MV800 has a powerful 20x optical zoom, with exceptional contrast and clarity, and that can place you right at the heart of the action.
The MV800 uses a razor sharp 1/6" CCD so that even at the strongest magnifications you will capture images that are crisp and clear. Canon's unique DiGIC DV processor renders these in warm, subtle tones; colors appear natural and vibrant. Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) means that hand-held footage remains steady and calm even in tricky shooting situations.
