Posted by: Ralf Jurrien

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 Canon 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 Canon MD200 series caters for a wide variety of needs - from Megapixel CCD recording to camcorders that feature a microphone input connection.

Advanced Zoom
Advanced Zoom is an innovation that provides users with the ability to capture distant events - such as a concert or a school sports day - in amazing clarity. Combining the quality of a genuine Canon lens with the processing power of the unique DIGIC DV image processor, enhanced zoom capability is possible - without compromising image quality.

Canon MD200 camcorder series -True Widescreen
Nearly every television set sold today offers true widescreen playback - but not every camcorder does. However, all Canon MD200 camcorder series benefit from Canon’s True Wide High Resolution 16:9 recording system. Allowing anyone to capture stunning, panoramic movie footage, each camcorder also incorporates a widescreen 2.7” LCD - the ideal way to preview movies in the correct dimensions. Right down to the widescreen EVF (Electronic Viewfinder), each model is geared for true widescreen. The Canon MD255 camcorder is a complete imaging package: as well as recording high quality video via its Megapixel CCD, the camcorder captures digital photographs to SD or SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards. Via the camcorder’s USB 2.0 Hi Speed connection, photos can be either printed directly on a PictBridge compatible printer or transferred to a computer. To manage images, a Canon Software Solution Disk is provided.

LCD video light
With a compact, sculpted shape, each camcorder in the range is designed for perfect shooting comfort. The one-push Easy shooting mode automatically takes control of all key settings, allowing novice users to begin shooting immediately. For more control over advanced settings, a Joystick at the edge of the LCD screen can be used to navigate onscreen menus. New to Canon camcorders in 2008, the 2.7” LCD can also be used as a video light when turned to face forwards. This allows close-up subjects to be captured in poor lighting conditions.

Microphone input
Great movies always deserve a great soundtrack. But sometimes audio capture can prove to be a problem - especially in environments where there is excessive background noise, such as a school play or a busy conference hall. A microphone input connection allows users to attach an external microphone to the camcorder, giving more control over sound.

Canon MD200 camcorder series
Unlike traditional remotes that can only be used when standing in front of the lens, Canon’s new multiangle remote control allows users to operate the camcorder from almost any angle - an additional sensor on the LCD screen simply needs to be directed towards the user’s position. While most camcorders take several seconds to power up after being switched on, Quick Start powers up the camcorder almost instantly. With one push of the dedicated Quick Start button, the camcorder rests in Standby mode, conserving battery power. With one more push of the button, the camcorder is ready to record in less than one second. Quick Start allows users to capture precious memories that they might otherwise miss - a child’s first steps, for instance, or a match-winning goal.
