Canon's New Five-Megapixel DC50 DVD Camcorder
DIGIC DV II
Canon's brilliant (and proprietary) video and still image processor, the DIGIC DV II, is the brains behind the dual purpose Canon DC50 DVD Camcorder. The DIGIC DV II image processor is the next generation of Canon's exclusive signal processing technology. In addition to recognizing the different color requirements of video and photos, and processing both to their optimal level of quality, DIGIC DV II processes video with improved color reproduction and dramatically reduces noise in low-light situations.
Photos benefit from Canon's DC50 DVD Camcorder's razor-sharp 5.39 megapixel CCD image sensor and array of complementary features, including the camcorder's Optical Image Stabilized Zoom Lens, 9-point AiAF autofocus that helps ensure that subjects are in focus however far off center they appear in the frame. Indeed, the DC50 DVD Camcorder features an array of digital camera features such as a built-in flash with red-eye reduction; PictBridge compatibility and a Print & Share button for quick and easy one-touch printing or downloading of images. Users will enjoy sophisticated features such as auto exposure bracketing; and a super high-speed shutter capable of shooting at up to 1/720 of a second (perfect for shooting in bright sun light). The DC50 DVD Camcorder has enhanced user controls, including Aperture Priority (AV) Shutter Priority (TV), Special Scene Modes such as Portrait, Sports, Night, Snow, Beach, Sunset, Spotlight and Fireworks; Image Effects that enable users to creatively customize their photos in a variety of ways, and even a histogram that displays a graphical representation of the light values of the image.
