Marketing text Canon MV 960

The official marketing text of Canon MV 960 as supplied by the manufacturer
A versatile compact camcorder optimized for true 16:9 high resolution recording with widescreen LCD screen and colour viewfinder. Features a 25x zoom, DV/AV input, photo capture and DIGIC DV.

The MV960 is optimised for true 16:9 widescreen recording - from the high-resolution CCD to a 2.7" wide colour LCD screen with level marker and colour viewfinder. Shot in 16:9 mode, video is perfect for watching back on the latest widescreen TVs. It takes just the push of a single button to switch between 16:9 wide and normal 4:3 shooting.

25x optical zoom
A powerful 25x optical zoom, with image stabilization and variable zoom speeds, delivers the highest optical standards.

Photo capture
A high quality digital photo camera and not just a camcorder, the MV960 saves photos to SD card and features 9-point Artificial Intelligent Auto-focus (AiAF) that keeps off-centre subjects in focus.

DV and AV input
The top-of-the-range MV960 has DV and AV input connections. With DV input, video that has been edited on a computer can be re-recorded to miniDV tape in the camcorder. Analogue-to-digital conversion is possible with AV input, allowing old home movies to be transferred to digital tape for archiving or edited together with new footage.

Night Mode LED
Video can be shot in even the darkest condition thanks to the MV960's Night Mode LED.

Vibrant colours with DIGIC DV
The MV960 employs Canon's powerful DIGIC DV imaging engine. DIGIC DV provides separate processing paths for both video and still images, making sure that colours are vivid and vibrant for each. Simultaneous video and photo shooting is also possible.

Easy shooting and control
Key camcorder functions and controls have been refined. For beginners, a one-push Easy Shooting mode sets the most important controls to automatic. A simplified overall layout means that there are only six buttons and a convenient joystick for more creative control. Five Program AE modes are available. An additional wireless controller is supplied, allowing remote control of key functions, letting you get into the shot.

Compact and lightweight
With a new design improving balance and handling, the camcorder weighs just 380g and sports an eye-catching silver metallic finish.

Convenient, built-in sliding lens cover
Protect the camcorder's lens without worrying about leaving the cover behind.

Software supplied
The MV960 is bundled with Canon's ZoomBrowser (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Macintosh), for easy photo and video image management.

Image sensor
Total megapixels*
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
0.8 MP
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Optical sensor size
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
Effective megapixels (movie)
0.47 MP
Optical sensor resolution
800000 pixels
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Image stabilizer*
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
43.6 - 1090 mm
Camcorder media type*
The type of media onto which the camcorder records, such as VHS tape or DVD-Rs.
Memory card
Compatible memory cards*
Types of memory cards which can be used with this product.
Camcorder tape type*
The type of tape used to record images from a camcorder, e.g. VHS, Video8.
Focus adjustment
White balance
White balance
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Built-in flash*
The product has an internal flash. A flash produces a brief very bright light, used for taking photographs in poor light.
Camera shutter speed
Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure.
Shutter speed (photo)
Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.

Camcorder type *
There are various types of camcorder (personal video camera) e.g. handheld camcorder, shouldercam.
Handheld camcorder
Minimum illumination
Also known as light sensitivity, this is the smallest amount of light needed for the camera to produce an image of useable quality.

Ports & interfaces
PictBridge *
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
S-Video out *
The port (socket) where the output for the S-Video is connected.
USB 2.0 ports quantity *
Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
S-Video in
DV port
Allows to send digital video from the computer to the camcorder and record back onto tape.
Battery technology *
The type of battery in the device, e.g. nickel–cadmium (NiCd).
