Canon DC21 body
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.
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.
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.
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.
