Advanced Zoom gives Canon’s new DVD camcorder line up the edge

DC330 Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 07 January, 2008: Canon announces the launch of a new direct-to-DVD camcorder line up featuring its new Advanced Zoom system. The DC300 series combines the ultra-convenience of straight-to-DVD recording with the most powerful zoom – up to 45x – of any Canon camcorder yet. Providing crisp, clear image quality – from wide to telephoto – Advanced Zoom opens up new possibilities for moviemakers shooting sports, wildlife and other distant subjects straight to disc.

Since the majority of TVs on sale today are native widescreen, each camcorder is equipped for True Wide 16:9 recording. Compatibility with DVD Dual Layer (DVD-R DL) media and Canon’s high capacity battery pack extends recording time, allowing every moviemaker to capture that extra shot.

“Combining the ease of direct-to-DVD recording with the benefits of innovative Advanced Zoom technology, our new DC300 series raises the standard for DVD-based camcorders,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “Our commitment to offering the highest quality imaging to every consumer will encourage more and more people to discover the joy of home moviemaking.”
