Features:

  • Canon Exclusive- Geniune Canon 41x Advanced Zoom
    Canon is known throughout the world for optical excellence. Every Canon broadcast TV lens, 35mm film camera, digital camera and camcorder share this brilliant optical quality. And now, to take better advantage of that quality, Canon introduces a new Canon Exclusive feature. The Canon 48x Advanced Zoom on the DC320 is just the kind of exclusive Canon feature you've come to expect from the leader in imaging and optics. Advanced Zoom extends the power of your zoom and is the longest zoom Canon has ever offered. In both wide angle and telephoto positions, there is virtually no loss in image quality throughout the range. How is this accomplished? With a Genuine Canon lens which remains in constant motion through the entire extended zoom range aided by our proprietary DIGIC DV II image processor. The DC320 offers you more flexibility to get just the shot you need by giving you the choice of Canon 48x Advanced Zoom in default mode or you can select a 37x Optical Zoom or a 2000x Digital Zoom . You will always be able to get the shot you need, no matter how close or far away, and always with the quality you expect from Canon. And with our unique super spectra coating, which reduces flare and ghosting, the image you capture will be cleaner than ever
    • Image Stabilization
      And thanks to Canon's superior electronic expertise, the DC320's image stabilization system corrects camcorder shake instantly. The built-in, high-quality image stabilizer allows you to shoot professional-looking, rock-steady video -- whether you're recording sporting events, your child's birthday party, or a long focal length shot without a tripod. Your life never sits still, and the DC320 will help you capture it all
  • Record Direct To DVD
    The DC320 digital camcorder lets you record directly to DVDs, and lets you shoot and share video through a variety of options. Only 3" (8cm) in diameter, the DC320's DVD-R/-RW discs are compatible with most DVD players and can store up to 30 minutes of video in standard mode and 60 minutes of video in long play mode. They also record to DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs that can store up to 108 minutes of video. When using the DC320's DVD technology, there's no worry about mistakenly taping over a once-in-a-lifetime piece of footage. Just shoot and the DC320 makes sure you record onto a blank part of the DVD. You can also review your footage quickly and easily without spending lots of time in rewind or fast-forward searching. With the DC320's Visual Index, you can review your footage at a glance and play the selection you want. You can even select shots and arrange them in a playlist. It's like editing your video right in your camcorder! You can also capture vibrant still images direct to the DVD. What's more, the finalization process for these DVDs is quick and easy with the DC320. It's just one more reason why you'll love recording direct to DVD with your DC320
  • Canon Exclusive- DIGIC DV II
    The Canon DIGIC DV II Image Processor is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Because video and still images have different color requirements, DIGIC DV II digital signal processing ensures the best image quality for both by specifically optimizing the settings for video and stills. Thanks to DIGIC DV ll image processing, the DC320 produces video with improved color reproduction -- especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction -- for images that are crystal clear
  • Brilliant Video
    • Widescreen HR Recording
      The DC320 records true High Resolution Widescreen for picture perfect video. Canon's Widescreen HR Mode uses the entire width of the image sensor, capturing true 16:9 widescreen. What difference does it make? It's simple. The more pixels which are captured, the better your final image quality is. The widescreen story doesn't end there. Even the LCD monitor of your DC320 displays the image in 2.7" widescreen color. From side to side and top to bottom, what you see will be what you get. No need to guess what your final image will look like when you're shooting. Not only that, but the DC320's big, 2.7" LCD screen and .35" widescreen viewfinder let you see exactly what you're recording. The DC320 also lets you show your great Widescreen HR video on a standard television in letterbox format. To make it even easier, a Widescreen Button lets you switch from standard 4:3 to 16:9 Widescreen Mode at the touch of your finger. The widescreen feature can also be used in both Program Mode and Easy Recording Mode, as well as with the camcorder's advanced image stabilization
    • Level and Grid Markers
      Level, well-composed shots are simple with the Level and Grid Marker features. Line up the horizon or other horizontal lines with the Level Marker in the viewfinder for level landscapes. Or, use the Grid Marker to help compose the perfect shot. Both markers can be set to white or grey for enhanced visibility, no matter what the background
    • Smooth Zoom Control
      Smooth Zoom Control allows you to choose between three fixed-zoom speeds to ensure smooth, steady zooms automatically
  • Megapixel Performance
    With the DC320, you get a 1.07 Megapixel CCD image sensor with a color correction filter. Your video will be sharper, clearer and more true to life, as will your photos. Every sunset on the beach will be more dramatic with every color in the sky faithfully captured. The joy on the face of a child scoring her first goal on the soccer field is recorded just as you saw it
  • Compact Size and Convenience
    All of the convenience of recording onto DVD is found in the DC320s slim, lightweight, gracefully designed body. It's compact- only 2.6" wide x 3.5" high x 5" deep (not including grip belt) and weighs just under a pound, making it easy to take the DC320 with you wherever you go
    • Joystick Control
      Adding to the ease of using the DC320 is Canon's Joystick Control. The Joystick makes using your camcorder easier than ever.

It also controls exposure lock and exposure compensation during recording
    • Easy Menu
      The DC320's easy-to-read menu system makes it a breeze to operate. For the ultimate in stress-free shooting, there's the Easy Mode. In this setting, your DC320 automatically chooses the focus, exposure and any additional available parameters to ensure that whatever you're recording comes out looking great. Simply select, point and shoot- there's nothing else to worry about
    • Built-in Lens Cover
      You'll never have to go searching for your lens cover with the DC320's built-in lens cover. There's also no more chance of your lens cap dangling from your camcorder and interfering with your shot or getting in your way
  • Quick Start
    With Quick Start, you'll never miss a shot again as you rush to turn your camcorder on and start recording. With this feature, you simply push the Quick Start button to put your DC320 in stand-by mode. Then, with your camcorder in stand-by mode, you can simply push it again and the DC320 begins to record in less than a second.

Comments about Canon DVD Camcorder:

It is a great camera, other than it is a little too small. I have large hands and it feels a little clumsy.
