Product Specifications

The DC95 is an easy-to-use entry-level DVD (-R/-RW) camcorder capable of recording video straight to disc. Designed for true widescreen recording, the camcorder's CCD uses all of its horizontal pixels to capture panoramic movies perfectly suited to playback on the very latest widescreen TVs. With a simple, one-push button to choose between 16: 9 and standard 4: 3 shooting, it's easy to make your own great looking widescreen movies on DVD. Delivering High Resolution widescreen video, the camcorder also has a 2.7" widescreen color LCD screen (112, 000 pixels), to show how the footage you are recording will appear on a widescreen TV. Along with a wide color viewfinder and a one-push button to switch aspect ratios, the DC95 is a versatile performer suitable for a variety of uses. The convenience of recording straight to DVD takes the hassle out of making great looking movies - simply finalize the disc on-camera, then play it back on a home DVD player. Add to that a powerful 25x optical zoom lens, with an additional 770x digital zoom, and the DC95 gets you close to the action with the minimum of fuss. DIGIC DV is Canon's innovative image processor that optimizes color reproduction - colors remain as vivid and vibrant as you remember them.
