Unrivalled power and performance: 5.39 Megapixels direct-to-DVD.

5.39 Megapixels
The DC50 combines the power of 5.39 Megapixel imaging and the convenience of direct-to-DVD recording. With an RGB Primary Colour Filter, the videos you make benefit from enhanced true-to-life colours.

Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer
The DC50’s 10x optical zoom lens features Canon’s Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) - an innovation developed for Canon’s HD (High Definition) camcorder range. This advanced OIS system combines two types of stabilisation to eliminate vibrations across the frequency range, including movements that lesser systems miss.

Keep on recording
The DC50 lets you carry on shooting after other camcorders have stopped. Compatibility with DVD-R Dual Layer media offers greater capacity while energy saving advances result in lower power consumption - you’ll have enough disc space and sufficient battery power to keep on recording. An optional high capacity battery pack is also available.

A further benefit derived from Canon’s HD camcorder range, DIGIC DV II provides great colour reproduction and sophisticated noise reduction technology. With separate and super fast processing of video and photo signals, you can take a snapshot even while you’re recording a video. DIGIC DV II delivers vibrant, true-to-life colours for both.

True wide
Add a cinematic flavour to your videos by recording stunning widescreen movies. You can monitor what you record in true 16:9 via the 2.7" widescreen LCD. To extend battery life, use the widescreen 0.27" colour EVF (Electronic Viewfinder).

Quick Start
Get a head start with Canon Quick Start. From Standby mode, a single push of a button lets you begin recording almost immediately.

Advanced photography
See the real benefit of 5.39 Megapixels when shooting a photograph. The DC50 has advanced photo features only normally found on dedicated still cameras.

Lens cover and flash
A built-in flash for digital photography lets you capture high quality pictures no matter the time of day. One of your camcorder’s most important assets is its lens and a convenient built-in automatic cover means that it’s always protected once the power is switched off.

Store high resolution digital photographs on convenient MiniSD cards. Photos can also be recorded to disc.

Print photos directly to a compatible printer at the push of a button.

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).
8.39 MP
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.
25.4 / 2.7 mm (1 / 2.7")
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.
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
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′).
6.1 - 61 mm
Focal length (35mm film equivalent)
43.8 - 438 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.
1/2 - 1/2000
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.
Viewfinder resolution
123000 pixels
Viewfinder screen size
Minimum illumination
Also known as light sensitivity, this is the smallest amount of light needed for the camera to produce an image of useable quality.
0.3 lx
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.
S-Video out *
The port (socket) where the output for the S-Video is connected.
DV port
Allows to send digital video from the computer to the camcorder and record back onto tape.
S-Video in
Battery technology *
The type of battery in the device, e.g. nickel–cadmium (NiCd).
Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion)
