Technically clever, brilliantly simple
Canon's engineers have always abided by the rule that technology has no purpose unless it can be put to good use. That is why the MV700i camcorder works straight out of the box. You won't need a PhD in systems theory to get started. No wading through complicated manuals – just turn it on and start shooting.
Style that works
The compact size and slim, ergonomic palm design feels as easy in the hand as it is to use. Buttons controlling all important features fall right beneath your fingertips, and you will be delighted by the wide proportions of the colour LCD. Menu navigation is intuitive, uncomplicated and available in 8 languages.
Zoom on in
Sitting just beneath the surface to await the more adventurous is a generously specified camcorder with a raft of advanced features. A remarkably high ratio 18x optical / 360x combined zoom means you will never be too far from the action, while shooting in low light conditions is no problem thanks to 'Night Mode'.
The MV700i camcorder includes Image Stabilization to keep the action steady without a tripod and a 1/6" high resolution CCD sensor for sharp images. The camera features DIGIC DV, a dedicated DV processor that raises the bar on image quality, recreating 'emotional' colours, tones and details to deliver images we humans love and remember: Redder apples, greener grass, bluer skies and warmer and more realistic skin tones.
Analogue Digital Converter
The MV700i includes an Analogue/Digital converter and Analogue In port to allow input of signals from analogue devices such as video recorders to be converted in-camera and stored digitally to miniDV format.
Range of creative effects
To add interest to video footage, Canon have included a host of creative digital effects. These include Art, Sepia, Monotone, Mosaic, Colors, Mirror, Ball, Cube and Wave. Scene transition options include Auto fade, Wipe fade, Flip fade, Corners fade, Tide fade, Puzzle fade, Beam fade, Zigzag fade and Jump fade.
