Based on the popular MV500 Series the new stylish design has been refreshed still utilising different colours to emphasise the individuality of each model. These new additions to the MV line-up are superbly designed and extremely compact - even with the included high-magnification lens.
All models in the MV600 series utilise IEEE 1394, feature Night Mode, a colour LCD and colour EVF
High Performance Lens and CCD
Each model uses a totally new 1/6-inch 800,000-pixel CCD, to produce even higher resolution movies. The range also incorporates the MACS (Multi Architecture Camera System) to optimise best quality image settings for movies and stills, depending on whether displayed on TV, PC, or printed via the Direct Print function (no PC is needed).
Each model is also equipped with a high-performance two-sided aspheric Canon lens. The MV600 uses an optical 18x / digital 360x zoom lens for video.
Programmed Auto Expose (AE)
By selecting the shooting mode that best suits the scene, each model adjusts internal controls to create the perfect video each time. Mode choices are Auto, Sports, Portrait, Spotlight, Sand and Snow, and Low Light as well as the new Night Mode with which colour shots are possible even in dim conditions.
Digital effect and digital fade
A variety of digital effects and fading functions are included for on-camera video editing. These effects previously had to be done on a PC. Effects include colours, ball, mirror, cube and wave while digital fade includes flip, tide, puzzle and beam effects.
An Audio Dubbing function makes it possible to create or replace commentary or music to footage, thereby enhancing or explaining images.
The MV600 includes a multi-image screen, which allows images to be played back on the LCD panel divided into 4,9 or 16 separate screens. Alternatively the camera can display a series of images in sequence.
