Canon DC230 DVD camcorder 1.07MP CCD

The official marketing text of Canon DC230 DVD camcorder 1.07MP CCD as supplied by the manufacturer
Straight-to-DVD, widescreen-ready Megapixel video recording – for everyone.

Direct-to-DVD
Capture vivid, detailed images via a high quality Megapixel CCD. Recording direct to DVD (-R/-RW/-R DL) is the most convenient way to get your movies onto the big screen: simply finalise a disc in-camera before watching it back in your home DVD player. No waiting, no fuss.

Be part of the action
You’ll get closer to every moment you shoot thanks to the DC230’s powerful 35x optical zoom lens. Move nearer by activating the 1000x digital zoom. An Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) cuts out camera shake, most noticeable at the upper range of the zoom.

True widescreen
The DC230 is optimised for true 16:9 recording, allowing you to record movies in cinematic widescreen. To make sure you get the perfect shot, preview images in widescreen too: the camcorder features a 2.7" 16:9 LCD and a wide 0.27" EVF (Electronic Viewfinder).

DIGIC DV II
Inherited from Canon’s High Definition camcorder range, DIGIC DV II is a super-fast processor featuring advanced noise reduction technology: enjoy high quality movies and photos full of vivid colours that remain faithful to the shooting subject. DIGIC DV II uses split path processing, allowing you to simultaneously capture video and stills - snap a shot any time the mood takes you.

DVD-R Dual Layer
The DC230 is compatible with a wide range of DVD formats. Support for DVD-R Dual Layer offers generous recording times and allows up to 108 minutes of video to be stored on one DL disc.

Quick Start
From Standby mode, you can be ready to start shooting instantly with a single press of the Quick Start button.

Joystick controller
Designed for easy one-handed shooting, the DC230 is operated using an intuitive Joystick controller.

Stylish and slimline
Compact and lightweight, the DC230’s contoured design provides comfortable and balanced shooting.

MiniSD
Capture digital photos to MiniSD memory cards.

USB 2.0
Transfer photos to a computer via a USB 2.0 connection.

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).
1.07 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.
1/6
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.
35x
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′).

Focal length (35mm film equivalent)
44.6 - 1561 mm
Storage
Compatible memory cards *
Types of memory cards which can be used with this product.
miniSD
Shutter
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
Display diagonal *
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
6.86 cm (2.7")
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.

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.
