CanonCanon DC100 DVD camcorder : Canon expands its DVD camcorder line up with the DC100 DVD model. This new entry-level DVD camcorder provides consumers with an affordable, high quality solution for recording precious memories. With its 25x optical zoom lens, Widescreen HR (High Resolution) recording and 2.7-inch Widescreen display panel, the DC100 model expands ease-of-use and enhances the affordability of video for entry-level users. "For consumers who enjoy using video as a medium to capture life's most precious moments, the DC100 DVD camcorder delivers excellent video quality in a compact package," said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon USA, Inc.

The DC100 DVD model records directly to a DVD, allowing consumers to easily put a disc into their home DVD player and watch home movies, from the comfort of their living rooms. The Canon DC100 camcorder accepts the three-inch DVD-R/-RW discs, which can store up to 60 minutes of video (120 minutes on a double sided disc) and are compatible with many home DVD players, both old and new. Canon chose the DVD-R/-RW format to ensure high compatibility with a range of DVD players and drives. Because it is a digital format, consumers can easily locate scenes without having to rewind or fast forward, create play lists of favorite scenes and are even able to do some quick editing.

Canon DC100 DVD camcorder - Widescreen High resolution
Along with Canon's DC40 DVD model and the new ZR and Elura Mini-DV camcorders, the Canon DC100 DVD model includes Canon's Widescreen HR (High Resolution) 16:9 recording, which allows users to enjoy a full-screen image on their widescreen TV with vivid detail and clarity. Canon's Widescreen HR feature not only delivers a wider picture, the method, in contrast to some other systems, uses a wider area of the CCD image sensor to strike more pixels and deliver higher resolution for superior widescreen image quality. The camcorder includes a 2.7-inch Widescreen display panel making it easy to compose shots in cinema-style. As widescreen television sets begin to replace standard TVs, consumers can appreciate the ability to frame and record in Widescreen HR and then enjoy full-screen playback on their widescreen TV for a theatre-like experience at home.

Canon DC100 DVD camcorder - Features
The DC100 DVD model incorporates complementary features that make it easier to shoot better video. Canon matched the high-magnification 25x zoom lens with an image stabilizer to ensure smooth, steady recordings - even at maximum telephoto. Additionally, a Smooth Zoom Control feature provides a choice of three fixed zoom speeds to make sure zooming is set to a constant speed, which prevents unintentionally rapid and dizzying zooms. It also includes Level Shot Control, which shows horizontal/center indicator markers on the display panel that allow users to easily compose shots level with the ground and avoid shooting crooked, uneven video. The camcorder also includes a built-in lens cover to easily protect the lens while carrying or storing the camcorder. The DC100 DVD camcorder records audio in Dolby Digital Stereo so consumers can enjoy the complete movie theatre experience all from the comfort of their living rooms.

Canon DC100 camcorder - Price & Availability
The Canon DC100 DVD camcorder will be available at the end of April 2006 for an estimated selling price of $499. Canon will debut the DC100 DVD camcorder in its booth during the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) exhibit in Orlando.
