Canon DC210 camcorder : The new Canon DC210 fits comfortably into the hands and the budgets of doting dads, moms on the move, proud grandparents and even film-buff brothers or sisters aching to be making the next great backyard blockbuster. The Canon DC210 DVD camcorder offers the convenience of viewing and sharing DVD discs, whether shooting in 16:9 Widescreen HR (high resolution) format for their widescreen Television (without resorting to cropping or stretching the scene), or bringing distant subjects and scenes up close and personal. Canon's DC210 camcorder makes video excellence and video ease two sides of the same coin. Available in March 2007, the Canon DC210 Camcorder carries an estimated selling price of $399.|

The Canon DC210 combines the convenience, versatility, and broad compatibility of DVD recording and playback with the dramatic reach of genuine Canon 35x optical zoom lens (1000x digital zoom), which is Canon's longest optical zoom on a camcorder to date. Sophisticated yet simple to use, Canon's Smooth Zoom feature actually reduces the erratic, jerky zoom techniques that plague some users of long zooms, smoothing out the process by selecting from one of three pre-set zoom speeds. For even smoother video, Canon Image Stabilization helps provide a shake free image for the entire focal length.

"More importantly, it combines this dynamic DVD technology and many other Canon camcorder advances and innovations into slim, trim, lightweight camcorders that are easy to use, easy to afford and easy to love for the high quality results they produce."

When in standby mode, Canon's DC210 camcorder is ready for action in less than a second, simultaneously powering up their large and bright 2.7 inch wide 16:9 format, 123,000-pixel LCD displays.

Canon DIGIV DV II processor
DIGIC DV II is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Even though video and still images have different color requirements, DIGIC DV II digital signal processing ensures optimal image quality for both video and still images. Using DIGIC DV II image processing, the DC series of camcorders produce video with improved color reproduction -- especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction for images and video that is crystal clear.

DVD allows consumers to easily locate scenes without having to rewind or fast forward, to create playlists of favorite scenes and can even do some quick editing right in the camcorder.

Despite occupying the true entry-level tier of Canon's DVD Digital camcorder line, the DC210 DVD Camcorder actually offers users a phenomenally feature-packed camcorder so users can enjoy the superior quality and innovation of Canon optics in a DVD camcorder. From the long, 35x optical/1000x digital zoom, image stabilization, and brilliant 2.7 inch widescreen LCD, to all of the power that DIGIC DV II technology brings to the movie-making mix, the DC210 DVD Camcorder raises the bar for entry level DVD.
Canon DC210 DVD camcorder - Digital effects
Because the right features can help any user compose shots like a Hollywood director, Canon has incorporated a level marker and added a new grid marker to the easy mode feature mix. When engaged, the markers appear - in either white or gray - superimposed over the image on the camcorder's display. The level marker appears as a horizon line, to easily let the user know if the camera is being kept level while the grid marker effectively divides the image into nine equal rectangular segments, making it easier for the user to compose a more appealing and effective shot.
