Powerful Advanced Zoom introduced across new MiniDV line up

MD215 Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 07 January, 2008: Canon launches the new MD200 series – a range of accessible MiniDV camcorders that introduce Canon’s new, powerful Advanced Zoom. Advanced Zoom combines the quality of a genuine Canon video lens with the power of the DIGIC DV processor, resulting in zoom ranges that extend as high as 45x magnification.

Each camcorder offers true widescreen recording, easy and intuitive operation, and the advantage of Canon’s Quick Start feature. With a number of models on offer, the MD200 series caters for a wide variety of needs – from Megapixel CCD recording to camcorders that feature a microphone input connection.

“The new MD200 series camcorders bring affordable, high quality home moviemaking to even more consumers,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “Easy to use and small enough to take anywhere, this new range of MiniDV models is the perfect way for anyone to catch the moviemaking bug.”
