CanonCanon MD255 : Canon launches the new MD255 MiniDV camcorder that introduces Canon’s new, powerful Advanced Zoom. Advanced Zoom combines the quality of a genuine Canon video lens with the power of the DIGIC DV processor, resulting in zoom ranges that extend as high as 45x magnification. The Canon MD255 offers true widescreen recording, easy and intuitive operation, and the advantage of Canon’s Quick Start feature. “The new MD200 series camcorders bring affordable, high quality home moviemaking to even more consumers,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “Easy to use and small enough to take anywhere, this new range of MiniDV models is the perfect way for anyone to catch the moviemaking bug.”

Canon mD255 camcorder - Widescreen
Nearly every television set sold today offers true widescreen playback - but not every camcorder does. However, the Canon MD255 camcorder benefits from Canon’s True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording system. Allowing anyone to capture stunning, panoramic movie footage, the MD255 camcorder also incorporates a widescreen 2.7” LCD - the ideal way to preview movies in the correct dimensions. Right down to the widescreen EVF (Electronic Viewfinder), the Canon MD255 is geared for true widescreen.

Canon MD255 miniDV camcorder - Advanced zoom and LCD video light
Advanced Zoom is an innovation that provides users with the ability to capture distant events - such as a concert or a school sports day - in amazing clarity. Combining the quality of a genuine Canon lens with the processing power of the unique DIGIC DV image processor, enhanced zoom capability is possible - without compromising image quality. New to Canon camcorders in 2008, the 2.7” LCD can also be used as a video light when turned to face forwards. This allows close-up subjects to be captured in poor lighting conditions.

Canon MD-255 video camera - Megapixel CCD and Memory card
The MD255 is a complete imaging package: as well as recording high quality video via its Megapixel CCD, the camcorder captures digital photographs to SD or SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards. Via the camcorder’s USB 2.0 Hi Speed connection, photos can be either printed directly on a PictBridge compatible printer or transferred to a computer. To manage images, a Canon Software Solution Disk is provided.

Canon MD255 features
• Canon’s new Advanced Zoom, offering up to 45x magnification
• Megapixel video recording and still photography
• DIGIC DV image processor for superb colour reproduction
• True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording system
• Quick Start - power up the camcorder in less than one second
• New LCD Video Light for filming close-up in poorly lit environments
• New multi-angle remote control for extra shooting flexibility
• Easy shooting mode offers genuine ‘point and shoot’ recording

MD255 miniDV video camera - Menu and Background noise
With a compact, sculpted shape, the Canon MD255 camcorder in the range is designed for perfect shooting comfort. The one-push Easy shooting mode automatically takes control of all key settings, allowing novice users to begin shooting immediately. For more control over advanced settings, a Joystick at the edge of the LCD screen can be used to navigate onscreen menus. Great movies always deserve a great soundtrack. But sometimes audio capture can prove to be a problem - especially in environments where there is excessive background noise, such as a school play or a busy conference hall. A microphone input connection allows users to attach an external microphone to the camcorder, giving more control over sound.

Canon 255 digital camcorder - Control and Quick start
Unlike traditional remotes that can only be used when standing in front of the lens, Canon’s new multi-angle remote control allows users to operate the camcorder from almost any angle - an additional sensor on the LCD screen simply needs to be directed towards the user’s position. While most camcorders take several seconds to power up after being switched on, Quick Start powers up the camcorder almost instantly. With one push of the dedicated Quick Start button, the camcorder rests in Standby mode, conserving battery power. With one more push of the button, the camcorder is ready to record in less than one second. Quick Start allows users to capture precious memories that they might otherwise miss - a child’s first steps, for instance, or a match-winning goal.
