The official marketing text of Canon DC-21 as supplied by the manufacturer
An advanced 2.2MP DVD camcorder combining style with easy one-handed use.

2.2MP CCD with RGB Primary Colour Filter
Record widescreen movies, bursting with colour, straight to DVD (-R/-RW/-R Dual Layer) via a 2.2MP CCD with RGB Primary Colour Filter. Then simply finalise a disc in-camera and transfer it to a DVD player. Traditional 4:3 shooting is selected at the push of a button.

Slimline and easy to handle
The DC21’s compact styling provides enhanced one-handed operation: with controls grouped together on the back of the camcorder, most functions can be accessed using just one hand.

DVD-R Dual Layer
The DC21, part of Canon’s second generation DVD line-up, is compatible with a wider range of DVD formats, including DVD-R Dual Layer. With greater capacity, Dual Layer discs offer more generous recording times: 36 minutes at best quality, 54 minutes at standard quality and an impressive 108 minutes at the most efficient setting.

2.7" widescreen LCD
Optimised for widescreen recording, the DC21’s 2.7" LCD allows you to keep an eye on the action exactly as it is shot - in true 16:9. The LCD’s horizontal level marker makes it easy to frame the perfect scene, while anti-glare coating means that the screen is visible even in bright sunlight.

10x optical zoom
With an advanced Electronic Image Stabilizer, the DC21’s precision 10x optical zoom lens delivers crisp images that are free of shake even when using the zoom at its maximum level.

Dolby Digital®
With Dolby Digital®* offering superior sound, the DC21’s audio matches the superb quality of its video images.

The DIGIC DV image processor provides images full of outstanding, true-to-life colour. Split path processing for video and still signals ensures optimal colour output for each.

Digital photography
Advanced digital photography functions make the DC21 a powerful all-in-one imaging tool. Capture photos to a Mini SD card whilst recording video, or store individual still images direct to DVD or Mini SD.

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

Image sensor
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.
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
Compatible memory cards*
Types of memory cards which can be used with this product.
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.
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.
