Canon MiniDV MV960 0.8MP CCD

The official marketing text of Canon MiniDV MV960 0.8MP CCD 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.

Widescreen-ready
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.
CCD
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.

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.
25x
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
1000x
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Yes
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
Filter size
A filter is a screen, plate, or layer of a substance which absorbs light or other radiation or selectively absorbs some of its components e.g. a UV filter to reduce UV light. Filters come in various sizes.

Display
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
LCD
Display resolution
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
