* DV Photo Plus
DV Photo Plus unleashes the full digital imaging power of your Canon
Megapixel camcorder, promising a superior level of clarity, color and
excellence for video and photos.
Canon's DV Photo Plus achieves premium-quality video and photos by
combining four key technologies:
- Genuine Canon Optics
Canon MiniDV camcorders feature high-precision lenses designed
specifically for their use. Each camcorder has a unique lens that
matches its CCD for optimal quality. Our camcorder lenses feature the
same distinguished quality found in 35mm cameras and broadcast TV
cameras. That's why professionals and consumers alike have trusted the
name Canon to preserve moments as vivid as the actual experience.
- Megapixel CCD
Canon's Megapixel CCD Image Sensor delivers crisp images with life-
like detail. Whether you are shooting video or photos with the
camcorder, you will get the best results. The CCD works like film --
when light is captured by the sensor, it registers an image and
advanced processing converts the pixels into digital data creating
your video or photos.
- DIGIC DV
DIGIC DV our exclusive signal processing circuit, makes it possible to
achieve accurate color for both video and digital photos. Since video
and digital photos have different color requirements, DIGIC DV
utilizes two different color techniques to maximize video quality on a
TV and still image quality for print or computer display.
- Print and Share
Print and Share from your camcorder! A variety of Canon digital
camcorders feature a Print and Share Button, which makes it easy to
print photos directly to a printer or transfer images onto your
computer with a simple touch of a button. Simply connect the camcorder
to a select Canon printer or any PictBridge compatible printer, select
an image and print it for your family and friends. It's like having
your very own photo lab at home.
* Print, transfer and share images with the touch of a button
The first camcorders to offer a Print/Share button, the Elura makes
direct printing and downloading images to a computer a quick, easy and
enjoyable task. And with Canon's Direct Print technology, you can also
connect directly to a printer. even when there is no computer present!
When the Elura camcorder is connected to a printer, the Print/Share
button lights up blue, letting you know that you can begin printing
simply by pressing it once. You can also transfer a photo directly to
your computer, with just a single press of the button.

* Catch all the action without the shake
Thanks to the Elura's high quality Image Stabilization system, your
videos will always look smooth, steady and natural... even when shooting
hand-held at full telephoto.
In addition, the bright 2.5" LCD view screen makes it easy to compose
sensational shots without having to squint into the viewfinder. You can
rotate the screen for high-or low-angle shots, or turn it around 180 to
record yourself. When you're done shooting, the screen is perfect for
reviewing your scenes.
* Shoot close-ups they will love
When shooting close-ups of people, the Elura-series camcorders utilize a
Skin Detail Function to automatically soften details. The result is a
more complimentary appearance that will keep your subjects coming back.
And for those moments when your subject is not in the centre of the
frame, the Elura camcorders offer three focusing points that will
automatically put your desired subject into sharp focus.
* Relive those low-light moments
Thanks to the Elura's Night Mode feature, you can easily capture low-
light images with the press of a button. Night Mode automatically
selects a slow shutter speed and increases the sensitivity of the CCD to
brighten up the image, while still preserving color. With Night Mode,
what you record is closer to what your eye sees.
* Seamlessly connect to your computer, TV or VCR
Embracing the industry's latest and most sophisticated technology,
Canon's Elura camcorders feature an exclusive connection circuit called
VIC. VIC is a virtual powerhouse. Traditionally, multiple chips were
needed to perform the camcorder's input and output functions. However
VIC manages it all with one single chip. The result is seamless
connectivity whether you are connecting to a computer, TV, or VCR.
* Take continuous shots at the press of a button
With the Elura's improved Continuous Shooting Mode, you can capture a
rapid succession of digital photos to the memory card just like a
camera's motor drive. Shoot 3 images/second at 1280x360 resolution, and
an incredible 5 images/second at 640x480 resolution. It is the perfect
feature for times when the action's happening fast and you do not want
to miss a single moment.
* Make mini movies at a moment's notice
With the Elura's improved Motion JPEG feature, you can record short
movie clips in 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 for the full length of the SD
Memory Card. Afterwards, quickly transfer your mini movie to a computer
and attach it to an e-mail or post it on the web.
* Get creative with the supplied software
The Elura Kit includes software for image management and editing:
ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Macintosh) which let you
easily download, browse, archive, and retouch your photos. It will even
automatically resize images and allow you to attach them to e-mail,
arrange them for printing, and add text.
* Take control of your creativity
The Elura-series camcorders will have you shooting like a pro, thanks to
the pre-programmed auto exposure modes (Auto, Sports, Portrait,
Spotlight, Sand & Snow and Low Light mode). Each mode is carefully
designed to give you the best possible image results under special
shooting conditions. More experienced users will also appreciate the
manual focus, exposure level, white balance, and shutter speed controls.

special effects that can add visual appeal and greater imaging variety.
