The short editorial description of Canon DC21
2.2MP CCD, Slimline design, DVD-R DL recording, 6.858 cm (2.7 ") widescreen LCD, AV Input, 10x optical zoom, Dolby Digital® audio

Marketing text Canon DC21

The official marketing text of Canon DC21 as supplied by the manufacturer
A 2.2MP camcorder providing elegant, one-handed shooting straight-to-DVD, with AV input, true widescreen mode, high quality stills and DVD-R Dual Layer support for extended recording times.

Next generation, 2.2MP straight-to-DVD shooting with one-handed control and AV input.

2.2MP CCD with RGB Primary Colour Filter
With a 2.2MP CCD and an RGB Primary Colour Filter, the DC21 captures the colours you see in panoramic 16:9 widescreen. Record straight to DVD (-R/-RW/-R Dual Layer), finalise the disc in-camera, then transfer it directly to a home DVD player to relive the moment. Traditional 4:3 shooting is easily selected with the push of a button.

Slimline and easy to handle
The DC21's lightweight body is designed with one-handed operation in mind. Easily accessible controls are grouped together on the back of the camcorder, making it a user-friendly, take-anywhere device.

DVD-R Dual Layer
Part of Canon's second generation DVD line-up, the DC21 is compatible with a wider range of DVD formats, including DVD-R Dual Layer. Greater capacity means generous recording times: from 36 minutes at best quality to an impressive 108 minutes at the most efficient setting.

2.7" widescreen LCD
The DC21 has a 2.7" 16:9 widescreen LCD, allowing you to keep an eye on the action exactly the way it is recorded. A horizontal level marker on the LCD helps you to find the right shot every time: anti-glare coating means that the screen is visible even in direct sunlight.

AV Input
Connect the camcorder to other peripherals via AV input to transfer analogue recordings to DVD quickly and easily.

10x optical zoom
With an advanced Electronic Image Stabilizer, the DC21's 10x optical zoom lens reduces camera shake, even when shooting at the limit of the zoom.

Dolby Digital®
The DC21 records audio in two channel Dolby Digital®* sound, for superior quality and a more rewarding viewing experience.

The DIGIC DV image processor provides images in vivid, life-like colour. Split path processing handles video and still signals separately ensuring optimal output - whatever and however you shoot.

Digital photography
Advanced still photography functions make the DC21 a powerful and versatile digital imaging tool. Photos are captured to either DVD or Mini SD card: saving them on a memory card allows you to take photos at the same time as you're shooting video.

Video light and flash
A white LED video light enables close subjects to be shot in colour in low light. A built-in flash for digital photography is also provided.

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).
2.2 MP
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.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
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′).
4.05 - 40.5 mm
Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
6.86 cm (2.7")
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
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.
123000 pixels
123000 pixels
Maximum video resolution*
This is the maximum resolution of video images. Resolution is a measure of the degree of detail visible.
640 x 480 pixels
